Finding the perfect party dress: Net-a-Porter

Every year as the holiday season rolls around we’re left rummaging through our wardrobes for something great – no, make that showstopping – to wrap ourselves in for the Christmas parties, the functions, the New Year’s soirees. This year it comes down to sparkling sequins, heavenly high hems and jewel-bright maxi dresses that sweep the floor with more than a subtle dose of 1970s vintage-inspired glamour. Finding your annual stockpile of on-trend frocks and accompanying accessories can be something of a mission though; so naturally we’re thrilled that NET-A-PORTER’s Party Boutique has it covered. Akin to shopping with a personal assistant, each carefully curated party dress is matched by a suggested clutch, pair of heels, piece of statement jewellery; the key pieces to put together that all-important party look.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
