Party season is only getting closer, and if you’re starting to see your calendar fill up with events, you might be weighing each up against your wardrobe, analysing which items can stretch for which occasions. Between family gatherings, work festive parties and "friendsmas" get-togethers, finding items that feel special, festive, versatile and comfortable can feel near impossible without spending hours and hours traipsing the shops. On an occasion that will likely include your closest friends, family or colleagues, it’s important that you choose an outfit that makes you feel both comfortable and chic.

To make the search easier, I’m taking it upon myself to inform you of the new-season top that has solved my partywear conundrum and that I’ve also seen cropping up on so many of my favourite influencers this season. Free People’s crystal mesh top balances festive glamour with relaxed wearability for the versatile style solution I've been looking for. The glitzy top can be layered over a simple black bra, a basic vest top or a light long-sleeved top for extra coverage and sparkle.
Claire Wakeman wears Free People's Intimately Filter Finish Long Sleeve (£128).
Bringing the glitter we all want during party season, the best thing about this top is that it gives an excuse to style your favourite pair of jeans throughout the festive period. Pair with dark-wash denim, pointed-toe kitten heels and a longline blazer for an aptly festive look you'll feel relaxed and chic in all evening long.
