Isn’t one of the best thing about the festive period that we get to out on our glad rags and go outs on the town? It is so nice to get properly dressed up and enjoy ourselves. But you may be a bit stuck on what to wear for your Christmas do? If so, fear not. Read on for some party wear advice.
Dinner and Dancing
If you are lucky enough to be invited to a Christmas-themed dinner and dance you should definitely make the most of it. This means getting a killer dress to turn heads. Short, mid length and long dress will all work for this occasion.
Keep the colours festive in reds, golds, and silver. Although a black dress is always chic too. Sexy 1940 starlet style dresses at super popular this year so think fit and flare, and fishtail shape. Sequences or sequence appliques also give them a festive air of sophistication.
As these dinner dances are one of the few occasions throughout the year that we get to wear long dresses you might want to take advantage of that. But just make sure that you accessorise it properly with luxury jewellery like drop earrings. You can get some costume style pieces or even treat yourself to the real thing. Buy preloved for a more reasonable price.
For you works, so you will want something that is attractive but not too over the top. If it is an evening do you get to away with something a little more glamorous like a nice cocktail dress. If it is in the day, it might be better to stick to some smart trousers like the palazzo pants and a simple blouse.
Dinner at the inlaws
Ah, dinner at the inlaws is a perfect time to let you funny and festive side some out. This is where you can rock a Christmas jumper to full effect. There are plenty on the market, from hideous 80’s monstrosities to star wars themed offerings. There are even Christmas themed dresses and leggings too. Although it’s best not to wear the altogether!
An open house is usually a more relaxed affair, so think smart casual outfits hear. Skinny jeans with boots and a long jumper work really nicely for events like these.
It also a good idea to wear layers, as the more people arrive, the hotter the venue with getting. Then you can just remove a layer to stop you overheating.
Plaid and tartan patterns are super popular right now, so try and work that into your outfit too. In fact, a great way of doing this is with a tartan scarf to accessorise what you are wearing.
A night on the town
Your Christmas night on the town is a perfect excuse to get your glad rags on. Ditch the formal ball gowns and fishtails and go for something short and sassy here. A little black dress is always a good idea, and you can make it more effective with some Christmas touches like glitter nails.
