It’s THAT time of year girls and you’d be forgiven for working yourself into a fest-stress worrying about nailing that all-important infamous Christmas party outfit that will make or break your office cred.
The Christmas party (or even your annual festive girly night out) is probably the trickiest fashion quandary you’ll face all year.
Yes, it’s true. Your Christmas party outfit sends a message – and not always the right one. On one-hand you don’t want to shimmy into that ultra-awkward evening looking like the village Christmas tree. On the other, go too demure and you’re certain to be upstaged by plain Jane from accounts (#epicpartyfail)
For those who don’t want to break the bank without compromising on style check out this velvet embellished bodycon show stopper from Boohoo at just £25Christmas Fashions. This season’s Stella & Dot fringe tassel mixed metal earrings will light up even the dullest of dancefloors – and they double up as studs which can be worn on your return to work the next day for that all-important post party gossip lowdown.
Next on my festive must-haves is this little number for good old Marks and Sparks (loving their Christmas advert BTW and no I can’t hear the burglar muttering something naughty to Paddington) Their sparkly sequin long-sleeve shift dress at £89 might be a tad over budget for one night – but trust me, this is one you’ll pull out of your wardrobe for Christmas eve and NYE.
To max your versatility pair this cobalt dress with my Rebecca Minkoff collaboration prisma chandeliers that can be worn four different ways. Colourful multi jewell tones are mixed with vintage gold and clear sparkle. Wear as a long, dramatic chandelier, a medium drop or as sparkly studs. Price per wear?- negligible!
My third dress I’ve chosen is from one of my very fave fashion houses, Karen Millen, it comes in a choice of red & black and if you’re quick you can scoop it up in your shopping basket for s bargain. I love that it has three quarter length sleeves,hugs your curves in all the right places and will see you through the festive season and beyond.
This dress was made for a sparkly arm party or cuff- I’d pair it with my gold Philippa bracelet in gold or Vogue’s choice of our edgy black Chantilly lace cuff.
This is your time to sparkle and shine & hopefully rock around the Christmas tree. I hope you love my outfit picks & if you’d like to have a nosey at the jewels, check out my link www.stelladot.co.uk/sinead or on IG as @onthesparklyside.
