Christmas Party Style Guide

With around five weeks until Christmas Day, you’re going to be attending your work’s Christmas Party sooner than you think. It’s important you impress – most jobs don’t require an eveningwear dress code and unless you work with all your best mates it’s unlikely your colleagues see you glammed up very often. It’s also vital that you don’t look too preened. Noone likes a Keen Katie. So, what to wear? Take inspiration from A/W 13 catwalk trends and combine classical opulence with innovative textures and silhouettes. Put simply, choose one of four trends from my Christmas Style Guide below and I promise you’ll look fabulous. Unfortunately, I can’t promise that you won’t get too boozy and end up on a bar table making a fool of yourself in front of senior staff… You will have to take care of that one.


Seen on the Dries Van Noten A/W13 catwalk and plenty more, a feathery number is on trend and adds a hint of luxury – a much needed style characteristic during the Yuletide period.

After the huge Great Gatsby buzz this year and Muiccia Prada’s involvement with the film’s costume designs, the Twenties ‘Flapper Girl’ style has been brought to the forefront of fashion once again.

Marc Jacobs layered on the sequins this season and teamed it with luxurious fur pieces, combining sparkle with tradition – a Christmas classic! If you’re going to opt for this look make sure you wear limited jewellery, a smoky eye and a killer pair of pointed heels.

A true classic – you cannot go wrong with head to toe black. Ensure your LBD party option is cut to a midi length with a scoop back and a high neckline for a sophisticated look. Detail is key to ensure you make black look beautiful so invest in an intricate pair of heels and textured accessories.
