Christmas party outfits for every occasion
Party season is fast approaching and we couldn't be happier, but with a list of RSVP’s that would put an It girl to shame, it's no surprise that we can often be left struggling for partywear ideas. Luckily, we're here to assist with inspiration for every festive occasion. From black tie bashes to the annual office Christmas party, our outfit inspiration will solve all of your festive wardrobe predicaments.Party shop
The office party
Looking for a touch of festive glitter that you can wear well into 2019? Enter the metallic pleated skirt, a versatile favourite that really comes into its own at Christmas. Bash more of a cocktail party? The blazer is your new best friend. Layer with a graphic t-shirt or roll neck at your desk, and then switch for a barely-there cami and a killer pair of court shoes come night.
Black tie event
For cocktail party chic this season, where better to look for inspiration than the ‘80s? Switch your usual party mini for a shimmering maxi dress and pile on the accessories. Top of our wish list is a pair of show-stopping platform heels and a metallic clutch. Well, if you can’t indulge your inner glamourpuss at Christmas, when can you?
As it turns out, being the best-dressed guest at a Christmas party doesn't necessarily involve wearing a dress. This year we’re looking for a stylish one-piece alternative ala Katherine Ormerond. A black jumpsuit in sumptuous velvet is just as likely to source compliments aplenty, especially when paired with long, statement earrings and a head-turning coat. Opting for a bold faux-fur jacket (the winter cover up to invest in) adds a dose of personality. The best bit? The jumpsuit is a great way to marry style and comfort, so bring on that Christmas pudding.
The beauty of going to a warm and cosy house for a party during the winter months is that you can wear a strappy dress and barely-there heels and you won’t catch a cold. If you’re forever a fan of a little black dress, make sure you choose a stand-out heel and jewel-adorned accessories. To really make an entrance (and stay snug en route) wrap up in a statement coat that you can wear long after midnight.
