Autumn and Winter is a really fast paced time of year. One minute you’re shopping for the perfect wooly jumper and carving pumpkins, then before you know it you’re receiving invitation after invitation to this year’s big Christmas bash. Whether attending a work Christmas do, a family gathering or a festive night out with friends, it’s always fun to get all dressed up for Christmas parties! To help you out along the way, here’s five top tips for guaranteed Christmas party style.
Add a bit of sparkle
You might be prone to a simple black on black ensemble, but Christmas time gives you the perfect opportunity to try out a more sparkly way of life! Sequins are your new best friend, which doesn’t have to be as tacky and ‘out there’ as you might think. Go for skirts or blouses with stylish sequin detail, or you could even opt for a pair of shimmery tights for some effortless glam.
Go the extra mile
As previously mentioned, Christmas parties are the time of year when you deserve to go the extra mile when it comes to style. Treat yourself to that pricey dress you’ve been eyeing up, or simply wear an outfit you think looks amazing but wouldn’t normally consider yourself. If you’d rather stick to your usual attire, try wearing a bolder lip colour or styling your hair differently as a subtle way to jazz up your look.
Of course, while you want to look amazing, you still need to think about just how practical your outfit is. Will you be dancing all night? Then you might want to rethink that super restrictive bandage dress. Prone to drink spillages after one too many? Give that all white jumpsuit a miss! The more comfortable you feel the more fun you’ll have in the long run, and that’s what Christmas parties are all about!
Focus on footwear
There’s so many beautiful pairs of shoes out there that are perfect for partywear. High heels are the obvious choice for special occasions, but you needn’t hobble around in 6 inch heels all night if that’s not your thing, as plenty of great online retailers like Uppersole shoes offer affordable heels in a range of heights and styles. For a fun style statement, choose shoes in a Christmas themed shade like red or green, and pair with the perfect LBD for a chic look.
Find the finishing touches
Once you’ve got your outfit sorted, shop for the ultimate pieces to finish off your look. Statement earrings, jazzy pendant necklaces and glitzy bracelets and rings could be the best way to step your outfit up a notch, and don’t forget to find the perfect clutch bag!
