The pressure of dressing for the upcoming Christmas party keeping you up at night? We know the feeling and have come up with a cure: plan ahead. It also helps to not overthink your choices and always as your friends what they’re wearing…duh.
And if that’s still not curing your dance floor fever, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite party pieces to inspire you. Whether it’s an in-office vibe or you’re heading somewhere super swanky, scroll through all the glitter, ruffles and LBD must-haves.
Go For Gold
Combining the classic style of a little black number and a contemporary mesh overlay, this bodycon dress will be a big hit. The slinky design hugs your curves and highlights your smallest points – a switch up from your usual 9-to-5 attire. But we’d be lying if we said our favourite things wasn’t its versatility – wear it with heels for a formal finish, or style with knee-high boots if the dress code is still TBC…
The New LBD
Sure, LBDs are totally acceptable at work Christmas parties, but what about embracing a new look and giving your colleagues fresh take? This year make sure heads turn when you add velvet to your wish list. Featuring a wrap front, short sleeves and a soft to touch finish, this plus size dress proves it’s all about textures in 2019.
Drop Your Hemlines
If the evening will turn into the early morning by the time you’re finished partying, make sure you get there in style with this asymmetric dress. Made from metallic fabric (that’s reminding us of the red carpet), it’s got dramatic ruffles that aren’t going to leave the night quietly…
All That Glitters
For daredevils and fashionistas, go for a long sleeve glitter number – like this dress. With a gold-tone finish that’ll show your true royalty, this metallic gown supports pretty enhancements like the keyhole neckline and the fitted waistline. Complete your look with sparkly rose-gold heels and dangle earrings.
Of course, we couldn’t do a partywear edit without including a sequin dress. They’re a hit every year and if that doesn’t secure them a place in your wardrobe, then we don’t know what will. And with a classic round neckline, a slimming self-tie waist and shimmering sequins, this dress puts it on our top spot.
