Christmas Party Wear for Women
Your Style Guide
What’s the Occasion?
Usually a raucous affair, but one you might want to keep it conservative for (depends where you work of course). Try a sleek trouser suit with sky-high stilettos. Velvet is back in a big way this autumn-winter and works brilliantly for dressy occasions.
Likely to be at someone’s house where you you’ll want to be comfortable, this is where could you could go for the failsafe Christmas jumper. This doesn’t have to be a novelty one, a sparkly roll neck will look sophisticated and festive.
If you’re off dancing, go for a sequin mini dress (yes really, they’re so on trend), otherwise a black dress is always a winner. And you can still make this more festive with a sparkly cardigan or patterned tights.
How to Accessorize
Metallic shoes are everywhere, pair with a little black dress for instant wow-factor. Reptile-print is also still going strong, while sock heels are not only on every fashionista's must-have list, they’ll also keep your tootsies warm.
If you’re planning on doing lots of dancing a bag with a metal shoulder strap is dressy and practical. If you want your bag to do all the talking think feathers and sequins. For formal events, a clutch is sleek and easy to style.
The catwalks put crystals on everything for AW18, from hair clips to earrings and even shoes. Chunky chains and bangles also got a lot of attention, as did statement necklaces – basically now is the time to go big and bold.
Your Make Up
From luscious lipsticks to glittery eyeshadows and dewy foundation, here's how to make your face glow like a beautiful bauble this season.
For evening occasions a smokey eye works well – think golden and sparkly blended with charcoals and dark browns. To really jazz it up, go full on glitter in any colour you fancy.
Go for bright red to embrace traditional Christmas colours, or try a dark berry shade. For something a little different, experiment with colours like dark green and purple.
For an effortlessly flawless complexion, prep your face with a skin primer. A highlighter & concealer will cover dark circles, while a contour blush will show off your best features.
