Alternative Party Outfits To Wear This Christmas

Party season is upon us, and by now, you’ll be inundated with invitations–in various forms–to usher in the festive season and there’s a palpable excitement in the air.

With that, proposes a once-familiar dilemma; what does one wear? The message is clear this event season: dress up. Yet, if actual dresses aren’t your thing, there are still cool alternatives and a new wave of high-glamour pieces that put a modernist spin on party season. These styles can slip seamlessly into a wearer’s existing closet whilst promising opportunities to be re-styled for plans long after New Year’s Eve.

THE LB-SKIRT

Yes, the LBD is truly a failsafe party option, but how about a little black skirt? A timeless piece of clothing that should hold a special place in any wardrobe, the mini skirt has all the influence to instantly elevate a chunky knit or a blouse into a noteworthy outfit. There’s something so inherently easy about this piece that when there’s no time to get ready, you can simply throw one on and feel ready for anything. Whether worn bare-legged and with knee-skimming boots or paired with super-sheer tights, the LB-skirt will add a little extra finesse to, ultimately, any party look.

DRESS DOWN SEQUINS

Sequins might seem like an obvious choice for party season, but clichés are clichés for a reason. We still love the appeal of embracing our inner maximalist with pieces that have a combination of sophistication and sparkle. Soften the headiness of sequins by pairing them with touch-me-textures like a relaxed cardigan with nothing underneath or toughen them up with true-blue denim. Just keep in mind, accessories, hair, and makeup should be simple – they’re just playing a supporting role after all.

THE ANTI-DRESS

A top and trousers has long been the antidote for the dress adverse. If you want to make maximum impact with little effort, a statement top will become your party saviour, elevating everything from off-duty denim to desk-to-drinks tailoring. Seek out sequin tops or pieces cut from velvet and just shrug on a relaxed blazer for a modern, nonchalant look.These are sartorial pieces that allow you to feel chic without overthinking styling. The second party hero that you can mix and match? A pair of well-cut leather trousers, which look sleek with black roll necks, party tops and relaxed knitwear.

NEW WAVE SUITING

If sleek suiting speaks to you, there’s many ways to embrace tailoring this party season. If you want to pull focus on the dancefloor, choose a bright or bold colour for something striking and style it with neutral tops and accessories. If you prefer something timeless, all-black tailoring is always chic and can be easily elevated with sequin tops and high-shine jewellery. We’d recommend swapping office-ready loafers for heeled sandals to transform nine-to-five tailoring.

A vibrant style is a welcome addition to any celebration and this season we’re reaching for wide leg trousers and oversized blazers.
