I love dressing for parties, especially around Christmas - mainly because it is the perfect time to indulge everything sparkly, shiny, lurex and fun. However, my priority (as always) is comfort, no matter how good you look you will never really enjoy a party if you are feeling uncomfortable or self concious.
Here are some party proof outfits that will pretty much guarantee you will feel good, look good and have fun.
So many people rely on a good pair of black trousers for event and parties, and that is not a bad thing. They are great because they are flattering, you can wear them with pretty much any colour top and they are suitable for so many occasions. So it always worth having a pair in your wardrobe you can call on.
These black trousers are currently my new favourites and could not be more perfect for the Christmas season - they are a subtle black on black leopard print but also have elasticated waist so they can expand with indulgence. This sequin striped t-shirt is another great party staple as are my black pointed flat shoes.
A SEQUIN DRESS
I LOVE sequins - Christmas (and festivals) are the perfect times to go all out on the sparkle and become the Christmas decoration or human disco ball.
The blue colour of this sequin dress is amazing, and I carried on the blue theme with these pompom/ Christmas bauble inspired earrings. Another bonus to this dress is that it is stretchy so is comfortable and perfect for dancing in too.
A LITTLE BLACK DRESS
Another reliable party classic is the LBD and this one is great. It has buttons up the front, slightly puffed sleeves and cool green, pink and white print. It could be dressed down with ankle boots or trainers or up with smart shoes or heels. It would also work for many occasions - work, lunch, dance floor...
