Get the look: Angela Scanlon
Angela Scanlon has made the 'glamorous tomboy' look her own, and with this suit and sequined number, she proves that it is possible to wear sequins in a non-cliched, overly girly way.
The shirt is by Irish designer Natalie B Coleman - if you are going for sequins this party season, go for the best quality that you can afford. The classic black suit is a perfect foil for the glitz.
I have a wedding to go to on New Year's Eve, and want to get a new dress. I'd like something that has sleeves and that falls below the knee - I'm in my 40s and I don't want to show too much skin. And I prefer colour.
Reply: First, try Marks & Spencer. Its Autograph range has a beautiful tailored dress in forest green, featuring a twist detail at the waist, which makes it extra flattering, €130. Tara Jarmon in Arnotts has a great dress in deep fuschia-pink, which has a fluted skirt and square neckline, €198. And Coast has a pale-blue dress, with bracelet-length sleeves and a full skirt, €245.
