We’re getting into the festive spirit over at A Style Album and have been planning our party wardrobe. Diaries are filling up with drinks, dinners and parties, and all that socialising means having a range of glitzy outfits. Everybody likes to put in a little extra effort come Christmastime, and at an already expensive moment in the year (there are presents to buy, after all), we’ve found 12 of the best high-street pieces that are perfect for party season. Go through the gallery below to shop our top affordable picks.

If you prefer to dress simply, stick to black this party season and add some interest with sparkly shoes.

Nothing shouts Christmas more than colourful sequins. We'll be teaming this sparkly pencil skirt with a chunky knit. 

If you don't want to go all-out disco diva, team a chic bodysuit with jeans—go high-waisted and add heels to complete the look. 

Moody florals are big news this season, and this Warehouse dress has the vibe nailed at a really reasonable price.

Finding the right coat to style with party clothes is always difficult—ours are always too smart or just not warm enough. This faux-fur hooded coat ticks all the boxes.

A pleated skirt is still Em's go-to evening look. She loves teaming them with a fine knit and a pair of court shoes for an understated formula that always works.

The silhouette of this dress reminds us of Saint Laurent—it's a very chic option.

The trophy jacket is an essential after-hours piece. Throw it on over the simplest of outfits, add some red lippy and you're good to go. 

This is the perfect dress for a winter wedding. The colour and length will cut it at the chicest of events. 

You can never have enough black lace dresses in your wardrobe, and they come in particularly handy during party season. This one works for every event in your diary. 

The 5-year-old in all of us loves a ballerina-esque skirt, right? This Maje version is stunning and very grown-up. Best to wear it with ankle boots, a slogan knit and a blazer: effortless but cool.
