Christmas is all about fun, so we caught up with TV and radio starlet Rochelle Humes’ in Ballie Ballerson for some advice on how to survive the festivities.



Imagine this...you’re on a last minute big night out with the girls. What to wear?

I like to put my own spin on an outfit - you can never go wrong with a jumpsuit, like the one in my edit. Super easy to wear, looks instantly glam and great for throwing shapes on the dancefloor.

With every party girl, there’s a party bag! What’s inside yours?

Nothing out of the ordinary: lipstick, phone, purse, keys, perfume…just the essentials.

You always look party-ready, but so snuggly too! Share your secrets.

I like a jacket teamed with skinny jeans, or trousers. You can still make anything feel feminine with a cami and a clutch bag.

"THROW ON SOME GLITTER."

Finish this sentence. My best advice for anyone going to a work Christmas party is...

Throw on some glitter, make new friends and dance like no-one’s watching!

Talk us through your getting ready rituals...

I start by putting on my favourite playlist, then I choose my outfit while thinking…what would Beyonce wear? I’d love to raid her wardrobe. And then onto a glass of Prosecco.

Any tips for surviving the party season?

Wear shoes that you can last the night in. I’m the first and last person on the dance floor, when I like the music: all it takes is a bit of Drake.

So, now it’s selfie time! Tips for taking the perfect pic?

Anything but a squished arm.

"A JUMPER, A SKIRT AND SOME HEELED BOOTS DOES THE JOB."

It’s so difficult to pick what to wear on Christmas morning. Agreed?

Unless I’m leaving the house, I’ll spend most of the day in Christmassy pyjamas. I’ll try and get Marvin and the girls to match this year, but I’m not sure he’ll be happy about that! If I decide to go out in the afternoon or evening, I’ll make a bit of an effort – a jumper, a skirt and some heeled boots does the job.

We can see on Instagram that you’re a pro at hosting parties. Any advice?

I’m a real foodie, so a great selection of food and drink is a must. It’s all about my famous roast potatoes!

"More mulled wine" is what some say. But what’s your Christmas hangover cure?

Food, food and more food!

"PUT A COSY KNIT UNDER A SMART COAT."

Any style hacks for surviving the cold, festive weather?

Get layering! It’s an obvious tip, but put a cosy knit underneath a smart coat and you’re ready to go. I’ve got more into cosy accessories such as oversized scarves and even hats – I really like Baker Boy styles.
