What to wear to a Christmas party: Festive Fashion Edit

Sick of all your dresses?  Contemplating wearing a Christmas jumper to the work do instead? Never fear, I have some Christmas outfit inspiration for you! And it’s not just dresses…

Sparkle always looks great at Christmas whether you choose a glittery accessory or a little sequin number. Glitter, sequins and embellishment are practically a requirement at this time of the year.

Folkster.com always have gorgeous glittery dresses in stock, ideal for a festive celebration.

These pink glittery shoes from Bershka add some festive cheer to any outfit. If you can’t afford to buy an entire new outfit for a Christmas party, these are only €29.99. A new statement accessory is great way to liven up an old outfit.

Christmas parties are synonymous with donning your best frock but a skirt and top combo can be equally glamorous. These sequin skirts from Pretty Little Thing are festive and fun.

Metallics also look great at Christmas like this patent silver mini from Bershka. This is a fitted skirt so a bodysuit is the best option for underneath.

If you don’t like short skirts or glitzy dresses don’t feel pressured to wear one just for the Christmas party. Wear whatever you feel most confident in whether that’s a playsuit, jumpsuit, culottes or jeans and a top.

Longer skirts can be equally pretty like this sequined midi with tassel details from Zara. It has a side split but is not overly revealing.

These gorgeous emerald green culottes from Bershka are a lovely satin material and are a loose fit.

This perfect party top would look great with jeans, black trousers or culottes.

Culotte jumpsuits have been hugely popular this year and this rich burgundy one from Missguided is beautiful.

Missguided have come up trumps with this simple but elegant green cowl neck dress for €37.50.

They also have some fab dresses on sale right now. The black velvet and red bodycon dresses below are just €13.50 each!  The metallic plunge neck  one is just €22.50.

For my own Christmas party, I wore this black dress with floral detail and a deep mesh V neck. I actually bought this dress in Catch for €26 and it’s an exact dupe for one I spotted in River Island a couple of months back.

The only issue I had with this dress was the floral appliques are slightly loose in places and may come off!

The only differences are my dress has slightly less floral detail and a lower V neck. The River Island one was about €50-60 as I recall. Both dresses are similar to a Dolce & Gabbana one worn by both Kendall AND Kylie! Who knows, maybe they share clothes too…

Red and green hues, velvet and jewel details are all great for a Christmassy vibe. That said, if you look great in white lace just go for it!

Hope you all enjoyed this post and got some inspiration for a party outfit. Do you like getting dressed up for Christmas?  Leave me a comment below and let me know.

Enjoy the party season and if you have to work over Christmas, you have my sympathies. :/

Christmas and NYE outfits!

I’m not a Christmassy person. I hate the hype and how crazy town gets both during the day and at night. Going into a shop generally creates the following reaction..

But I do love Christmas outfits! And better yet New Year’s Eve outfits! New Years in my opinion is the time to go all out and be as stunnin as you possibly can be! And all of the clothes featured here can be ordered online so you don’t even have to leave your house and foray into the madness!

My first pick is these imitation leather shorts with embroidery from Bershka. These are so pretty.

Bershka also have the best bodysuits which look great with fitted trousers or a black skirt.

And you can’t beat a velvet top at Christmas.

This tulle dress is ideal for Christmas or NYE.

I fell in love with this little lace beauty in Topshop a while back. It comes in two lengths a midi and a shorter length. Personally I always go for a mini as I’m petite and I think mid-lengths are very unflattering on petite shapes.

Topshop also have some offers at the moment including this beautiful blue velvet playsuit reduced from €68 to €46. Warning: I’ve tried this on and it’s quite short!

If you want a more modest playsuit, this green one is equally beautiful! And probably slightly warmer!

And if you just prefer dresses, you can’t go wrong with this little black number.

Missguided currently are offering up to 50% off selected dresses until tomorrow at 9am. If you’re looking for something new, these could be ideal.

This eyelet dress is just €21 at the moment.

Yet another velvet beauty this time in burgundy. It’s currently reduced from €42 to €28.

While this purple lace dress is really unusual.

Hope you all enjoyed this brief post and got some Xmas/NYE outfit inspiration. I’m still staying away from the shops (somehow) and very proud to say I haven’t bought any new clothes since August ! However this will be rectified after Christmas, looking forward to sharing my purchases with you all then 😉
