The office Christmas party is the perfect excuse to get dressed up and showcase your fashion credentials. Whether you’re looking for something timeless, quirky, or just want to ensure that you stand out from the crowd, there’s no better time to be shopping for a new party dress.
With that in mind, here are some of our favourite Christmas Party outfits that you won’t be able to resist:
Radiant in Red
If you’re looking for a show-stopping dress for a black-tie Christmas party, don’t blend into the crowd in a black dress like everyone else, stand out in statement red instead.
This stunning red statement dress ticks so many style boxes it really deserves its own article. Made from a thick stretchy fabric, to ensure it looks flattering on any figure, it features a single shoulder strap, a square neckline, and clever pleat detailing to hide any lumps and bumps you might not want to put on display.
Because this stunning dress makes such a statement in its own right, it doesn’t need excessive accessorizing. Instead, pick just one key piece, such as an oversized cocktail ring, dramatic chandelier earrings, or a diamond-encrusted tennis bracelet. Avoid adding a necklace, which would distract from the beautiful and unusual neckline of the dress.
Stunning in Sequins
Conventional wisdom suggests that you can showcase either your cleavage or your legs, but never both. This dress proves that there are always exceptions to the rule! Certainly not for the shy and retiring, the all-over sequin coverage of this dress means that every light (and every eye) will be on you the second you enter the room.
Featuring a flattering wrap detail skirt, plunging neckline, and full-length sleeves, this dress has been designed to suit every figure. If you’re going to a Christmas party in a cocktail bar, glamorous restaurant, or a black-tie private function, then this is the perfect dress for you.
Beautiful in Blue
If you’re not feeling bold enough to stand out in bright, vibrant shades, but don’t want to disappear into the background in a conventional black dress either, then rich navy blue is the ideal alternative. It’s a shade that is flattering on every skin tone, it captures light beautifully, and it’s easy to accessorise too.
We love this chic navy wrap front dress which features a feminine frill at the hem and a coordinating waist tie to create an enviable hourglass figure. Busty girls can also rejoice, as the straps on this gown are thick enough to wear a supportive bra underneath.
Style your dress with high-quality metallic accessories, and coordinating jewellery, for a chic and classic look or add unexpected pops of colour, such as vibrant red heels or a turquoise clutch, to inject more modern twist.
