It goes without saying that the festive season is not going to look quite the same this year, and the usual get-togethers and drinks parties will be put on pause until 2021 (yep, it's going to be some shindig). Despite this, our desire to get dressed up has not been dampened, and after a quick survey of the Who What Wear team it's clear that niine months of knitted co-ords and slippers has created a serious craving for a little glitz and glamour in our lives.
While the demand may be there, we acknowledge that 2020's partywear needs to be adapted to each of our own contexts and tiers. Many will be toasting bubbles with their, well, bubbles in living rooms while others will be sticking to Zoom celebrations, but whatever your Christmas plans looks like, we can't understate the mood-boosting power of a sparkly party piece.
Fashion brands might not have gone hard on the partywear this year (understandably), but worry not because there's plenty to choose from if you want to get dressed up this December. Whether you're more of a sequins person, a feather-trim fanatic or just prefer to stick to a festive jumper and jeans, there'll be a look for you.
