Is it too early to start thinking about what to wear for Christmas parties? We didn’t think so. Christmas party looks hould be planned in plenty of time!
Christmas is the time to wear things you wouldn’t normally reach for day-to-day. That’s right, we’re talking about glitter, sequins and MORE glitter.
Whether it’s with work, family or friends, we recommend starting your hunt for the perfect outfit as early as you can, so all the good stuff isn’t taken.
To save doing an emergency online order of every dress in stock, here’s some inspiration for the Christmas party season.
The classic little black dress
LBDs are famous for a reason. They’re the perfect go-to outfit when you don’t know what to wear or aren’t feeling that extra.
Available in a range of different cuts and styles, having a classic item in your wardrobe will see you through Christmas parties and beyond.
The great thing about such a simple dress is how you can play around with different textures to alter the look. Velvet, leather, denim…the choice is yours.
If it’s a bit too cold to pull off a mini with bare legs, add some sparkle and detail with patterned tights.
This is also a great option if you’re not the most comfortable with colour. With a little black dress, you can add print and interest with bags, shoes and accessories – every time you wear this dress you can create a different look.
Don’t worry, we aren’t talking about a floor-length gown made of furry fabric.
We’re talking about hints of soft detail on sleeves, skirt trims and blazer collars.
The simple touch really takes an outfit from 0-100 and – being a current trend – can be found everywhere.
If you’re too overwhelmed with choices, we recommend a Bardot design with fur trim along the top. It looks great with skirts, jeans and everything in between, as well as heels or chunky boots.
Sequins are BACK
Inspired by the disco movement of the 70s, it’s hard to escape sequins at the moment.
They’re on everything.
Isn’t it amazing!
For a slightly toned-down version, pair a sequin skirt with an oversized t-shirt and a strappy heel. While you’re still embracing the trend, you won’t end up looking like a disco ball.
For disco ball lovers, don’t be afraid to go all out. A dress that’s inch to inch covered in the sparkly stuff guarantees a showstopping entrance – perfect if you’re going from club to club this Christmas.
Suit it up
Suits aren’t given enough recognition when it comes to party dressing.
They come in many different cuts and styles – whether you want a skirt, wide-leg trousers or something more fitted, there’s definitely an option for you.
If you’re conscious about buying an outfit for just one night, a co-ord is the perfect solution. You can wear each item again and again, separately or together.
Yes, Christmas is known for being a jolly season, but oh my god it’s cold. If you’re worried about standing in a train station in nothing but a mini dress, a suit gives you some extra coverage while still looking party-ready.
