Party season throws up anything from a work night out, family gathering or a casual collection of friends, and as much as we have our own guidelines, who better to look to for a few pointers than regular party goer, Victoria Beckham?

The super successful fashion designer has teamed up with Net a Porter to share her top five tips with us all for party season, check them out below...

CHOOSE A SIMPLE DAY LOOK THAT CAN BE DRESSED UP FOR EVENINGS
"If you're going from the office straight to a function, switch up your look with a small clutch, a beautiful gold cuff and a pair of heels. That's when I love the ease of my Victoria, Victoria Beckham dresses most - they offer simple silhouettes that you can dress up or down."

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A STRIKING BAG
"For evening these should be small and carried as a clutch, but large enough for a lip gloss and phone. Go for one of two styles: the slim-line zip pouch or the more structured hexagonal chain bag. I love a flash of chic rose-gold hardware."

WEAR SHOW-STOPPING PARTY HEELS
"I never tire of a chic pointed pump. They make every outfit look great and also enhance the leg. They're perfect because of how comfortable they are."

IT'S BETTER TO BE UNDER-DRESSED THAN OVER
"If I'm not sure what the dress code is, I opt to be a little more casual. It's easier to be underdressed and then carry yourself with confidence. During the colder months, I team evening dresses with my military-inspired structured coats thrown over the shoulders."

SOMETIMES IT'S GREAT TO GO FOR ALL-OUT GLAMOUR
"For a formal function, I often wear one of my signature dresses as they're appropriate for black tie. I feel confident as they look good from every angle - always an important factor for evening events. I pair with my favorite heels, great hair and makeup, and, of course, one of my bags."
