Five Fabulous Christmas Party Outfit Ideas

Christmas party season is well underway and we have the perfect outfits to get you through it.

The stores have been full of sequins and sparkles since October but now’s the perfect time to get into the festive spirit and find the perfect outfits for the Christmas season! So what are your options?

Well, a little black dress (LBD) or Le Smoking suit is always on par for the party scene, but there are plenty of other options. From pink jackets to red velvet, here are some not-so-basic ideas to give your festive wardrobe a boost this year. Come out of your comfort zone and put on something bold or sparkly!

Pink Trouser Suit

Admittedly, this look is not for everyone but it’s always lovely to see a cheerful pop of colour in an otherwise dark, if sparkly, room. This one is from River Island, €142.

This burgundy trouser suit is a great alternative and also serves as a departure from the standard black Christmas outfit. It is also priced at €142 from River Island.

White and Sparkles

A little white dress and diamante or crystal jewellery is such a classic look for party season, but it never feels tired or overdone. This white sequin wrap front long sleeve dress is a classic, available from Quiz at Debenhams or online.

Red velvet

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a splash of red velvet in our lives. From scarves to blazers to dresses to skirts and bags, velvet adds a touch of opulence and luxury to any holiday party outfit.

Slip skirt

I absolutely adore this slip skirt/white shirt combo from Harpers Bazaar and while not all of us are supermodels in real life, the look is very wearable and not difficult to carry off. It is also perfect if you're heading to your office Christmas party.

Leather look

Autumn/Winter 2019 has so far been very much about the
faux leather/pleather trend for just about everything, so taking the leather
look into the Christmas party season is a natural progression.
