According to the Financial Times' resident style editor, Jo Ellison, this festive season it's all about keeping the focus on your top half with "over the table dressing". The theory is simple; people will only see your top half when you're sitting down at your Christmas dinner party, so focus your attention there.

This is a great approach as wearing colours that really suit you on your top half ensures maximum impact; your skin will glow, your eyes will sparkle and you're sure to turn heads for all the right reasons!
