Fashion: Holiday Party Looks

Holiday party season has arrived which means it’s time to put a bit of glitz into your wardrobe! If you’re going to invest in one special piece to spice up your party look this season, a dress is your best option! You can easily change the look up by just adding different tights, a jacket or blazer and statement jewellery and a clutch bag.

Party Dress Trends

Popular trends for party dresses this year are the tried and true metallics, luxe brocade fabrics, polka dots, animal prints and pastel colors like baby pink and blue. Embellished details are always a hit during the holidays but sometimes less can be more - just a bit of detailing around the neckline or collar is all you need! Luxe fabrics like velvet and brocade are big this season - try a one shoulder velvetnumber or a rich purple brocade shift dress!


Holiday Party Accessories

Statement accessories are the key to rocking a unique look this holiday season. The little black dress will never go out of style and a fabulous bib necklace, chandelier earrings and bangles adds personality to your look. Pick an accessory that is bold and stands out - you’re bound to get loads of compliments if you dare to take some risks with your accessories so don’t be afraid to go big! Simply changing your shoes from some heeled Mary Janes to studded black boots instantly makes a huge difference - you suddenly go from glam to rocker in just a simple shoe change! Swap your plain black tights for some sheer polka dot or patterned ones or add a lacy jacket or boyfriend blazer for some easy ways to change your look up!

Or pair some black sequin shorts with a tshirt and blazer - the possibilities are endless! Just pick one special item and dress around it to make it holiday party perfect!
