For fashion outlets, Christmas means just one thing - party frocks. No girl wants to go to this year's parties wearing last year's dress, but who wants to spend a small fortune on something that glitters for a season then tarnishes in the back of the wardrobe? Careful shopping means more flash for less cash. Drop-dead glamour is possible on a budget by keeping it simple - shifts, tuxedo suits, lots of black - and adding dramatic accessories.
