Do you love to add some sparkle? Or are you someone who wears something different to the norm because it’s Christmas and why not?
Whatever way you like to dress during Christmas party season, it’s time to start thinking of what to wear to some of the dos you have planned. Whether it’s the festive office bash or your seasonal get-together with your friends, there’s plenty of partywear to choose from.
If you’re seeking some inspiration, here are some trends you can channel when you hit the shops in search of your perfect outfit.
Animal prints are always popular, but leopard print has really taken off this year. This attention-grabbing look features on everything from shoes and bags to midi-length trench coats.
If you want to channel the catwalks at Dolce & Gabbana and Max Mara by embracing the look, go bold in a leopard print dress and pair with classic black heels. For something a little different, you’ll find stores stocking a range of the print in different shades to the typical golden hue, so you can indulge in accessories that set you apart from the pack.
A tweed dress can be dressed up or down, making it perfect for a few festive drinks after work as well as Christmas Eve lunch with friends. This classic design was everywhere at the fashion shows, with a vibrant orange variation at Prada and muted tones at Calvin Klein.
Should you opt for similarly subtle colours, elevate the look with sparkling accessories. Yellow gold with bright ruby-coloured stones look great next to neutrals.
Colours from the ’70s are big this party season, with brown in particular enjoying a revival at Fendi and Chloé. If you want to pick up on the trend, you could invest in a cool brown trench coat or try a chocolate brown pencil skirt on for size.
Velvet is still big for winter ’18, with mini party dresses made from the softest material of them all in all the colours of the rainbow. From deep purples and regal golds to classic reds that are perfect for the season – like this velour one from Damart – there are colours, styles and lengths to suit you.
Whatever you choose, whether you want a soft velvety number or a wild print, you’re sure to sparkle this season. Which one are you drawn to?
