The holidays are as good a reason as any to go for all-out glamour and add some sparkle to your social feeds, whether it’s with a shimmering sequinned dress or a dazzling two-piece suit. No matter how you’re celebrating this year – with cocktails or party games – stunning Christmas party dresses are a zero-fuss way to go from sofa to social, and a must have for your festive clothing collection. Plus, they don’t have to compromise on comfort (look for relaxed shapes and stretch fabrics) and can be dressed down, if desired, for more casual gatherings. Just add pantyhose and chunky boots and throw a sweater or blazer on top for keep the feelgood factor flowing long after party season has ended.
Did someone say sequins? Our favourite go-to holiday party outfit formula is fancy on top and comfy on the bottom. An attention-grabbing sequinned top is a festive-season classic. And with all eyes drawn to it, you could keep things simple on your bottom half – or go all out with a striking pair of wide-leg pants. If you’re heading to your work Christmas party straight from the office, jazz up a sleek white shirt with buttery-soft leather pants and sparkling gold-tone jewellery.
The key to a party-friendly but future-proof outfit is to focus on balance, picking items that blend luxe detailing with timeless designs. Take this dazzling red sweater – it’s a classic that will work from Christmas Day through to New Year’s Eve. Satin blouses or pleated midi skirts in luxurious fabrics look effortlessly chic and are fancy enough for kitchen discos while also being relaxed enough for day-to-night wear. A velvet blazer pairs perfectly with a glass of prosecco, but also looks just as good with a white T-shirt, vintage-wash jeans and sneakers. Meanwhile, a patterned cashmere knit dresses up leather pants and will keep you cosy until spring.
Adding statement accessories and jewellery to your Christmas party outfits is a fuss-free and budget-friendly way to give your look an upgrade. Demand attention with a show-stealing evening bag in a jewel tone or opt for a chain-detailed clutch. An embellished headband in velvet or satin will crown your outfit and prove itself a reliable icebreaker. Diamante always looks good during the festive season, and a sleek hair clip adds a modern aesthetic.
