The Christmas season is nearly upon us, bringing a whole host of glamourous events that call for a gorgeous party look. We’ve taken a break from wrapping presents to bring you some of the wonderful styles that we’ll be adding to our wardrobes.
The Christmas lunch
Christmas lunch is the big event, whether you’re eating at home or going out for a meal. Finding the balance between a beautiful look and unbeatable comfort is vital. We think this Nina Leonard skirt really stands up to the occasion. The layered effect creates a feminine silhouette while the elasticated waistband will keep you comfortable until the Christmas pudding is rolled out! We’ve paired it with this Michele Hope top for a sparkling look. The sleeveless style is ideal for keeping you cool as things heat up in the kitchen, while the rhinestone details will add a splash of festive flair.
Time to accesorise. We’ll be adding fun festive colours to our outfit with Lola Rose’s Portobello bracelet. As you’ll spend a lot of the time sitting or standing, a heel will work nicely with this outfit. Try the Moda in Pelle Calanda snake-print court shoes for an extra layer of texture.
The buck’s fizz reception
Whether you’re hosting a champagne breakfast for the family or an evening of merriment for your friends, you’ll want an outfit that gives you the confidence to be the ultimate host. We think trousers work well for this sort of occasion, as a compromise between style and practicality. The WULI:LUU by Gok Wan palazzo trousers will instantly accentuate your curves and elongate your legs. We like them paired with this stunning Coco Bianco sequin top. This will add dramatic sparkle to your outfit and reflect the light beautifully to leave you feeling in the festive spirit.
To elevate your outfit further, mirror the gorgeous metallic tones of the top’s embellishment in your jewellery. The Bibi Bijoux celestial bracelets add a flourish of silver, whereas the Lola Rose Kiera black Mother-of-pearl earrings will bring some charming detail with their heart motifs. On the feet, we’ve gone for the Peter Kaiser Ekatarina court shoes. The heel is comfortable enough to walk around in if you’re working the room, and the classic style will be something you reach for year after year.
The work do
The big event of the season is always the work Christmas party. It’s time to dress to impress. We love this eye-catching jumpsuit from Kim & Co. With a stunning pattern and flattering wrap-style, you’re sure to be feeling fabulous as you dance the night away. If you’re looking for the ultimate dress, then we think this metallic number from Ronni Nicole is unbeatable. The loose fit will complement your curves, and the elbow-length sleeves are perfect for extra coverage.
To really make your metallic outfit pop, go for these beautiful crystal earrings from Frank Usher that’ll amp up the drama while adding a sophisticate edge to your look. The work party is also the time to break out the high heels. We think the Yara sandals from Moda in Pelle work beautifully with both outfits as the perfect dancing shoes. To carry all of your essentials, go for the Amada Wakeley Howard bag. The luxurious velvet finish will add an extra dimension to your look, and the metal accents will bring everything together nicely.
