Jumpsuit - As before | Cropped polo neck - New Look | Biker jacket - Oh My Love | Shoes - Dr Martens @ Bank

A recent study revealed that the average 18-24 year old spends £119 on a Christmas party outfit, so VoucherCodes challenged me to find a partywear piece that could be worn again throughout the year so as to get the most out of your money. I decided to use my £80 towards a jumpsuit (£45) and a collar necklace (£29.99) as I find it easier to boogie on down (let's quickly skim over the fact that I just used that phrase) in trousers than in a dress. The first outfit is my pardy outfit, then for my second outfit I added a white shirt underneath - I'm pretty sure you all saw that one coming - and changed into some flatforms for a more casual look. Things got even more casual for the third look; I popped a cropped jumper over the top, added some Doc Martens and finished it off with my trusty leather jacket. So, there we have it - one Christmas piece styled for three different occasions. Partywear's not just for Christmas people, it's for the whole year round. 

And yes, I think I've used that line to finish a post with before, but it really drives a point home, doesn't it?

What a great idea for a challenge! I've been so guilty in the past of not thinking about how items will work with the rest of my wardrobe or for more than one event.

Love all three of the looks, too!
