Deciding what you wear to your end-of-year work Christmas party is an important call. You want to something that says celebratory without jeopardising your professional cred. Our tip is to keep the silhouette proper, but have fun with colour and embellishment. A pair of punchy palazzo pants? Perfect. A pair of silver-foiled skinny jeans? You got the idea. The Sugar pod have kindly submitted their top two office-shindig selects for your perusal, so step inside and get inspired. Just for goodness sake, watch your champas intake and save your best dirty dancing for a GNO.

Yesterday morning we were privy to a sneak peek at Maurie & Eve's Autumn/Winter '13 collection. Yes, you read right. Autumn/Winter 2013. It's that time already! The local label has long been on our radar for their girly take on going-out clothes and sexy separates but M&E designers Kelly Davies-Green and Maya Clemmensen have shown a new maturity in their designs for their 'Paradis Noir' line-up. Custom basket-weave and cloud prints along with cleverly constructed sheaths and jumpsuits were rolled out in a sophisticated palette of mustard, bordeaux, turquoise, indigo and stone, making this the stuff of future-wardrobe dreams. A special shout-out goes to the printed sleeveless moto jacket, and backless silk jumpsuit. The collection won't be dropping in-stores on online until February of next year, so consider this a look into the crystal ball of what you'll want to be wearing come twenty-thirteen.

See you there!
Maurie and Eve have made a big impact on the Australian fashion scene in very little time. In three years, their collections have gained local and international acclaim, with each range staying true to their unique design aesthetic. Design trio Kelly Davies, Maya Clemmensen and Scott Davies let us in on their upcoming collection and source of inspiration.
Will you be repeating your sell-out biker boots for Winter?
We won’t be repeating the biker boots, but the response has been so amazing we’ve decided to include a small shoe line in each collection.
What can we expect from Maurie and Eve come Winter 2010?
For Winter 2010 we’ll tap into your base animal instincts. You’ll find strong animalistic roots with leopard print featured throughout - printed flowy batwing tees meet body hugging dresses with shoulders embedded and dangling chain work. For those not weak of heart, the quilted leather mini skirts and strapless dresses add a sharp edge. Our pick for the coming season? The tailored wool pant teamed with a structured jacket.
What’s the one thing every girl should splurge on each season?
SHOES! A killer pair of heels can totally make an outfit.
Do you have a ‘go-to’ source for inspiration, be it for your personal style or collections?
We have so many, I couldn’t begin to start... One that we’re loving now is Tavi – The New Girl In Town. Shes a 13 year old girl with a blog that is off the hook!
Whose celebrity style do you admire and why?
Rachel Zoe is amazing. Her style suits her personality, she has that talent of mixing designer with vintage, bananas!
Boots in Summer? Sound ridic? Trust me on this one, it's never been so easy to work a boot with a breezy summer outfit. Thanks to the huge amount of short, slouchy, flat, and studded styles on offer, a short ankle boot could replace your trusty go-with-anything ballet flats.
Let's take a walk through boot heaven.
Hello, lover! Isabel Marant has introduced a new style of boot every season recently, and these Spring 2010 are her latest offering. I'll take one in every colour.
Maurie and Eve have gained a cult following thanks to these tough biker boots.Get your name on a waiting list, fast. (RRP $220)
Your pedi won't go to waste with these Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony buckle boots. (Approx $680)
Simple and to the point, these Forever 21 flat booties will give you loads of comfort, as well as style. (Approx $25!!)
