4 Completely Joyful Party Outfit Ideas From the Who What Wear Team

Uttering the words party outfits is enough to make some people break out in a cold sweat. From office events to family reunions, as well as catching up with friends you haven't seen for a while, there are plenty of reasons to dress up. But what if you don't know where to start or, in fact, hate the thought of having to really consider what to wear when all you want to do is curl up in front of a fire and drink a bucket of hot chocolate? While there are plenty of potentially daunting situations that arise at this time of the year (bumping into old significant others, political chats with uncles, friends popping 'round with last-minute unreciprocated gifts), your wardrobe shouldn't be one of them.

Luckily at Who What Wear, we need very little encouragement on the festive-dressing front, which is why we thought we'd give you our fail-safe party outfit ideas. From dresses to chunky knits, with a few sparkles in between, we've got four unique looks that everyone can feel comfortable in while still feeling festive. We all have different personalities and personal styles, but we can agree on one thing: Now is the time to have fun with your fashion choices. Keep scrolling for the whole Who What Wear team's completely different party styles.
