A Party Dress A Day: The Ultimate Guide to Festive Frocks

The festive season is upon us and finally we can embrace sequins, sparkle, shimmer and shine without any reserve. So whether you have a penchant for all-out glamour, a slinky cocktail number or playing up as prom queen, we’ve compiled the ultimate party dressing guide, the five most important nights of December.


 

…Your Office Party

As sartorial etiquette goes, conservative dressing should mostly definitely be saved for any event that might see you boss or your in-laws on the list. Think high neck lines, long hems and tights for good measure. Style note: pick an interesting print or a pop of colour if this look is too safe.

…Christmas Day

Ok, so it might we might be a walking Christmas cliche, but red is a festive fool proof on the 25th. Set your ensemble apart from the others with the addition of interesting appliques, unexpected fabrics and romantic fabrics. After all, tis the season for love!

…Boxing Day brunch

After a string of sultry numbers, the 26th calls for a fresh new look. With or without the snow, winter whites are refreshing alternatives to December’s seasonably dark palette. Just don’t spill!
