THE end of year party season is ramping up with all sorts of occasions in the pipeline.

Whether you're time-poor or happily clueless with fashion, Gladstone Noni B's styling sessions can help reduce stress when it comes to finding your party fashion.

Arrange a time with the store to drop in and they'll sort out a few outfits with your specific occasion and measurements in mind .

It's free of charge and free from obligation.

Tracey Locke and Linda Warne were happy to model some of the store's after-five offerings.

Manager Toni Hobbs said the store tended towards "safe colours".

"A lot of them are one colour, so that's when we accessorise and add more to it," she said.

"I don't like to over-accessorise - you can take the look away.

"Small and simple, just something to add that elegance."

For looks that will last, opt for strong tailoring.

Light metallic prints also give a modern, sophisticated air.

Dresses with rouching, panels or a peplum around the waist can flatter what may be a problem area.

What's in-store:

  • Liz Jordan: size 8-18 - caters for all ages
  • Noni B: - size 10-20 - focused on mature age group
  • Price range starts from $39.95 to formal wear $299.
