It’s that magical time of year when the annual traditions of Christmas begin – lights are going up, seasonal coffees are out and we’re all getting quietly excited as the festive season draws closer. Have you had your first mince pie yet or is it just too soon? We love to glam up here at Q Towers, no matter what the festive occasion is – a generous helping of glitter is a must.
Whether you’re on the lookout for your Christmas day ensemble that’s both comfy and chic or your work Christmas party show-stopper, finding that perfect outfit is just such a great feeling! So don’t worry if you haven’t sorted your party season wardrobe out just yet, we’re on hand to help with our fabulous fashion and accessories selection, and here are some faves…
Time to dress it up
There’s nothing better than a gorgeous party dress in our book. One piece and your outfit is sorted. Take a look at this jacquard dress from Ronni Nicole. It has a flattering shape with 3/4 length sleeves and fabulous glitter detail running through it – perfect for any festive celebration.
This gorgeous taffeta party skirt is so pretty too if you’re looking for separates. It has wide metallic stripes on it and will look beautiful teamed with a plain black top, heels and shimmering jewellery. Perhaps one to save for New Year’s Eve?
If maxi dresses are your thing, then this design is ideal for the festive season. This dazzling Phase Eight Dahlia dress is just fabulous. It’s sleeveless and made from a sparkling fabric, with a twisted knot detail at the front, perfect for making an entrance at your work Christmas party. We love this little Coco Bianco dress too. It’s subtle, but still gorgeous and the gold lace detail on the sleeves really adds a striking touch to it. A great choice for a Christmas dinner out with friends!
More of a trouser girl?
Jumpsuits are such a trend at the moment and this shimmering design from Kim & Co has Christmas written all over it. The foil detailing is stunning and really makes it a great choice for any special occasion teamed with heels and big earrings.
Slim jeans or trousers are just as smart for any festive party and these pull-on trousers from Isaac Mizrahi Live would look gorgeous. They’re flattering and comfortable to wear and the pretty faux pearl detailing at the hemline is so stylish. They’d match perfectly with a vibrant printed top or a block colour one too, and they make a nice change from your usual jeans or a skirt.
Work it in killer heels
We love our trainers and comfy boots for most of the year, but it’s nice to put on a pair of heels for a special occasion isn’t it? These Moda in Pelle heels are so stylish. They have a shimmering black and gold finish and the platform design means that they should allow you to cut those shapes on the dance floor without having to kick them off!
These classic stiletto court shoes are a fave of ours – particularly in the leopard print (which is everywhere we look right now!). They would set off a simple black dress perfectly.
A sprinkling of glamour
Bold, shimmering jewellery is a must-have for your party season wardrobe, and you can never go over the top! We’re fans of this beautiful Together stud necklace. The dozens of studs clustered together make a bold statement and almost look like tiny Christmas baubles strung together. It’s not too much either, so you can easily get away with wearing it with a simple top and jeans. This bold Aurora necklace is a lovely choice for this time of year too. It comes in a choice of colours to match to your outfit and creates a striking, sparkling look.
The K by Kelly Hoppen jewellery range has some gorgeous designs, including this sparkly Miami dome ring. It really makes an impact with its chunky style and pave set crystals. These threader earrings from the same range are stunning too with their stylish design and shimmering white topaz stones.
Finish it off in style
Now, it’s not just all about the outfit itself. Investing in special, evening outerwear and accessories with stylish accents is so important. Like this simply chic infinity scarf from Frank Usher, finished with a scattering of sparkling metal studs all over – perfect for adding to your coat for a night out.
A faux fur coat is definitely on our wish lists this season and this Helene Berman one ticks all the boxes. It’s so nice to finish off a party outfit with a luxurious coat like this with its smart pleated finish and edge-to-edge style. It’s long too, so should keep you nice and warm as you’re heading out of the party to find that taxi home.
No look is complete without a fabulous evening bag and you won’t be disappointed with this cute design from Ophia. It’s made from suede, has a chic chain strap and the studded star pattern is so on trend right now. Or why not add a hit of glamorous sparkle to your party dress with this glittery clutch from designer Lulu Guinness, featuring her iconic lips design? It’s so fabulous and you’ll be reaching for this every time party season rolls around.
