It’s almost that time of year again when a scroll through your diary makes you look like a professional partygoer. A pub lunch here, a festive cocktail there, a couple of work parties and before you know it, you’re all booked up. We’re not complaining, though. The festive party season is the best excuse to go all-out when it comes to dressing up. Sparkly earrings and platform sandals? Sure. Metallic gold boots for lunch? Why the hell not? Top it all off with glitter manicures and a blow-dry, and we’re glad of the opportunity to indulge our inner party girl.
Of course, while it’s all rather exciting, each individual event requires a different event. Fear not, though—we’re here to help. From a cocktail party to a knees-up with friends, we’ve sought inspiration from some of the most stylish ladies on the party circuit for original styling ideas that won’t see you turn up to an event sporting the same look as another guest. So sit back, consult that calendar and scroll through the gallery below for the seven Christmas party outfit ideas you’ll need.
A Night At The Pub
Festive Lunch Date
An Open House Party
Style Notes: This category can vary massively according to whose house you're heading too, however, if in doubt, go for smart casual with a festive twist. This lurex skirt feels suitably Christmassy, while the heeled boots and cosy knit keeps it from looking full on bauble.
The Black-Tie Soirée
Style Notes: The Vampire's Wife is the dress brand every fashion editor is obsessed with this year. For a black tie 'do, opt for one of the brand's metallic styles and pair with platform sandals. They do gorgeous velvet iterations too.
