If you’re not familiar with Ms Pandora Sykes (AKA The Sunday Times Style magazine's Wardrobe Mistress and supper blogger) then, hello. Ahead of her work Christmas party at Tramp last night (and because 5pm at this office currently looks like the inside of a Boots advert with a frenzy of Xmas party prepping), we asked Pandora to show us what a fashion editor wears to her work bash. So, why is this a pardy dressin’ 101? Well...

1. It’s an LBD, but not as we know it. Sure, Pandora's is Gucci, but whatever your budget the takeout is to look for a plunge neckline or a roll neck to keep it fresh this winter. 

2. The over-the-knee boots that disappear into the dress (clever) give the mini a 60s nod and keep things cool (and work appropes). 

3. Pandora’s accessories game is tight: gold earrings and layered rings = stealth bling.

Heads up: Pandora is our next Girl Chat pin-up and will be talking us through her style on Saturday.
