What to wear to your Christmas Party
Thu 19 Nov 2009
'Tis the season to be stunning - ready or not, the party season is upon us and it's time to think about that all important Christmas party dress. Turn heads with our guide to the perfect Christmas party outfit.
Sequins - Sequin party dresses are the ultimate in wow-factor dressing. They ooze star style and will make you feel like a true VIP: make an entrance in our animal sequin dress, strapless reverse sequin dress or one shoulder sequin zebra dress. Keep accessories to a minimum and let the sparkle speak for itself!
LBD - You can't go wrong with a slimming and sophisticated LBD. If you're in the market for a slinky black number to wear as your Christmas party dress, look out for on-trend embellishments. Check out the one-shoulder leather disc dress, V-neck sequin dress and fabulous backless fringed dress.
Jewels - Nothing says 'I'm a princess' like a jewelled prom dress. Alexander McQueen and Dolce & Gabbana went all-out for jewel-encrusted pieces on the catwalk this year, and you can get the look with our jewelled colourblock dress or the best-selling strapless embellished pocket dress and beaded waist colourblock dress.
VIP - Avoid the ultimate party outfit faux pas - playing snap in the same Christmas party dress as a fellow guest - by shopping for limited edition designs. If you can't push the boat out at Christmas, when can you? Check out our VIP collection for the studded feather dress, mesh and sequin dress and metallic strap colourblock dress, or for all-out A-list style, go for a floor-sweeping chiffon maxi dress.
Okay, so we've covered Christmas party dresses, but what do you wear to keep the winter chill off on your way to the do? You need to make a style statement as soon as you walk into that room, and as cosy as your parka may be, it just won't cut it. It's the details that can make or break an outfit, so make sure your jacket is just as special as your party dress.
The trophy jacket is a must-have item this season - and our sequin jackets and snakeskin sequin blazer are just the pieces for a special night out. Alternatively, go for retro glamour with a faux fur coat or channel Rihanna in a tuxedo jacket.
Compliment your Christmas party dress with some stunning accessories - think statement pieces and a whole lot of sparkle. A cute clutch bag is a must-have for the party season - you can't go wrong with our silver bracelet snake bow clutch or zebra heart bag.
