Shades of the season

Shades of the season

Christmas marks the official arrival of the party season. And when the party season is here, so is the need for party outfits. Worry not fashionistas, we got you covered. These Christmas party outfit ideas will make sure you are the belle of the ball.

Sequins mini

Sequins were made for occasions and celebrations. And with sequins, it'll look like you're wearing glitter, which instantly makes it a winner for us. Sequins are not for the faint-hearted. If you are the fashionable woman who believes in being the centre of attention at the party then this is your pick. If you're worried about the cold, team it with tights. You could also consider throwing it on with some thigh-high boots with a fur coat to elevate the look.

White and red

If it is Christmas, it is red and white.  It is such a timeless Christmas combination so why not give it it's share of the limelight. When everything else going on around you is dull, sad, and dreary, really make an entrance with a blazing red skirt that could literally stop traffic. Try a red A-line skirt, very flattering for all body types, with a white satin shirt, a white sequinned top or even a comfy white Christmas jumper and chic gold accessories and a classic red lip.

Tulle skirt

Sarah Jessica Parker made this skirt famous, in that oh-so-famous splash-scene in Sex and the City. Once again, there's that red and white theme running through cute Christmas outfit ideas such as this one coupled with Carrie Bradshaw style statement pointed toe heels! Pair it up with popular accessorising trends for this season– a big, chunky necklace worn over the top of a high-necked sweater. The long-sleeved, round-necked top is clearly a fashion must-have for right now, and to make sure you're super tucked in so that equal attention is divided amongst all the components of the look. You could even invest in a couple of bodysuits instead which will prevent the around-the-waist wrinkles.

Velvet slip dress

Velvet can be quite hard to wear, especially if you've never given the fabric a shot before. But it's such a luxurious material, even Princess Diana was said to be a big fan. If you're worried about wearing velvet for the first time, opt for a darker shade- navy, burgundy, emerald are all the rage. It'll be easier to wear than something really bright, bold and in-your-face.

Embellished playsuit

When you're wearing something as bright and shiny as an embellished playsuit, you may find that you'll need to be a tad more conservative with your jewellery choices. Too much bling surrounding this look can cheapen it, so try to go for fine pieces that won't take too much attention from the outfit itself. Stick to one or two hoop-shaped pieces for either the hand or ears, nude makeup to and of course a pair of strappy heels to complete the look.

Little black dress

You can't really go wrong with a LBD – little black dress – and it's a great one to wear for the cold too. Team with tights and pretty shoes, or even boots, and you have a look that you could quite easily wear to the office during the day. Glam things up with sparkly accessories for the evening, and you have one of the perfect Christmas outfit ideas.
