Let the fun time begin! The build up to this year’s yuletide festivities is apace and as a ‘professional shopper’ I’m seeing pieces come in quickly and go out just as fast. So, if you’re planning to party this Christmas don’t dilly dally on planning, finding and pocketing your outfit as quickly as you can.
I’ve been looking at classic pieces for Christmas parties and get-togethers. I’ve focused on velvet, sequin and satin pieces which will not only work for this year, but for years to come. And, of course, these pieces can work for parties and weddings too. You break them down and mix and match with other items in your wardrobe all year for a high/low look. Think sequin top, jeans and heels for an evening with girlfriends, and sequin leggings with a chunky jumper for a concert or date night.
You’ll find a few short dresses in the selection below. If you want to cover up legs with something other than fake tan, go for 20 denier tights and wear them with ankle boots for the edgier party look.
Velvet pieces feel cosy and look elegant, while satin has a lustre look that party girls can have fun in.
I’ve chosen mostly black pieces as it’s a classic choice, but there’s some colour in here too.
Choose jewellery to suit your skin tone and add a pop colour with the addition of a clutch or small shoulder bag.
And most importantly, have fun!
