It’s time to shine!
It’s party time! Whether you’re living it up at glitzy do’s or keeping things relaxed and simple with drinks at home, there’s a look to suit every occasion this festive season. Read on for my Christmas Partywear style guide!
Christmas Partywear for 2022
Let’s talk colour…
I know the default is often to go for black – the classic LBD (little black dress), black trousers and a ‘nice top’, or maybe a black jumpsuit. But why not step out of your comfort zone and try something different regarding colour?
Black isn’t always that flattering on everyone. It can look heavy or draining, especially if you have lighter hair and fair skin.
So, rather than a black party dress, how about this cobalt blue velvet leopard print dress by Roman?
The wrap style is super-flattering on most body shapes, and the fabric has lots of stretch, so is great on curvy figures (and more forgiving if you hit the buffet hard!). Plus, it has long sleeves, which is a bonus if you prefer to keep your arms covered.
Continuing the velvet theme, I absolutely love this Red velvet tuxedo-style suit from Reiss.
This certainly has the wow factor! You can’t get more Christmassy than red velvet, and the trousers are on-trend kick-flare. What’s great about this suit is its versatility. Wear with a silky Cami and sparkly heels for a ‘black-tie’ dress code event. Or team the jacket with some leather trousers or even jeans and boots for a meal out or drinks party. The trousers would work with smart leather pumps, a slogan t-shirt and a bomber jacket, or a simple polo-neck knit for Christmas day.
Sparkle and Shine!
It wouldn’t be Christmas without sequins and sparkly things, and there are lots to choose from this season.
Try a sequin skirt, team it with a fluffy knit to play it down, or heels and a corset top for full party glamour.
This stretch silver skirt is by TU at Sainsbury’s, so you can pick up your sprouts simultaneously – and it’s just £24!
Or try this sparkly jumpsuit by one of my favourite brands – Sosandar.
Again, a sleeve for a bit of coverage, and the pewter shade is universally flattering for most skin tones.
Relax… It’s Christmas
If you’re after something a little more relaxed or aren’t keen on super-dressy partywear, try an embellished shirt or a stylish Christmas knit. This pink blouse from River Island comes in four colours (yes, including black If you must!) and would go with everything – a leather skirt or jeggings, jeans, or wide-leg silky trousers.
Or try a stylish take on the Christmas jumper with this fitted Fairisle knit from Karen Millen.
It would look fab with a maxiskirt and boots – the ideal Christmas Day outfit.
