The weather outside is frightful, but ladies, its party season! Time to dress to impress! We’d be surprised if you haven’t been sat at your desk wondering what you’re going to wear to the office Christmas party this year. You probably feel as though you’ve nothing at all, and it’s essential that you must have a new outfit for the occasion. Are we right?! Something happens to us all at this time of year. For 11 months we suppress that inner magpie, and as soon as December hits we’re imminently drawn to all things sparkly. Right now the high street is adorned with party pieces in metallic shades, bold colours, playful textures and embellishments. We’ve pulled together some of our favourite party looks that will make you feel extra special this year.
Sequins, faux fur and gemstones galore!
The Metallic Trend
If there’s one thing we’re wearing its metallics. Even fashion favourites Cara Delevingne, Alexa Chung and Gigi Hadid have been seen rocking this trend. Metallics have been huge since spring and they slip perfectly into your winter wardrobe. High-shine and iridescent fabrics are guaranteed to give you a striking look. It’s not just about silver and gold hues though, have fun with a bit of colour too!
Choosing the right jewellery will add the finishing touch to your outfit and enhance your entire look. Bling, bling, bling!
The Statement Heel
Make sure you accessorise with the ultimate statement heel! Be bold and embrace prints, texture and colour. These cute feather heels are the ‘it’ shoe of the season. They will inject an element of fun into a simple outfit. Go for a lace-up heel to give your ankles extra support so you can dance the night away.
The Faux Fur Jacket
Faux fur is our favourite thing to wrap ourselves up in this winter and still look fabulous! Team your party frock with a luxe faux coat to give your outfit another level of glam.
The ‘Party Girl’ Dress
If there’s anytime of the year when we can bedizen ourselves in sparkles and sequins its now. We all need a fun party piece to feel pretty in over the festive period. Turn heads in this 90’s inspired silver Bardot skater dress or this equally gorgeous green sequinned mini!
The Ultimate Accessory
