Calvin Klein hits the mark. A minimal silhouette in a muted gold fabric is the perfect middle ground. There are no unnecessary flourishes here; confident and carefully thought-out design reigns.

This A-line dress from Topshop in pearlised oyster is ideal for those who break out in a rash at the mere thought of OTT Christmas glitz.

If the shoulders are a little too bare for a nippy December night, layer over a shrunken white tee or under a cosy, cashmere wrap.
