The solution... the basics

Dear Catherine,

The cheek of your boyfriend - it's my belief that the best bit of NYE is by-far the getting ready. Going 'all out' is what it's all about!

Nevertheless, you should start 2010 off on the right foot with your other half so here's how to be subtly sexy and smart/casual at the same time:

Ditch the bootcuts and go for Jeggings.

Yes, bootcut denim is wonderfully wearable and a fail-safe option in jeanwear. But if you want a party look then opt for a pair of  jeggings or just skinny-fit jeans.

Skinnys say style in any situation. They look fabulous tucked into knee-highs or teamed with a pair of towering (yet seasonally appropriate) closed-toe heels.

Wear your jeggings with a simple black tee or vest top. The key here is to go for plain basics then layer on the accessories and the slap... Don't worry, I'll explain.

My suggestion:

Jeggings - £15 -
