There are two types of people in the world: those who have had their Christmas party outfit planned, ordered and hung in their wardrobe since October and those who don’t. Sound familiar? Us too! Yes, we RSVP-ed weeks ago, but we’ve been more concerned about decorating our tree and getting that Instagram post just right TBH. Now, we’re in the midst of party season and our wardrobes have had no glitzy new addition. Let’s change that shall we? And who better to turn to for party season tips than our HQ huns. Here are their top picks…

The Playsuit

Natalie, Senior Fashion Manager

“A blazer and jeans is my go-to for drinks with the girls so I’ll be going one better this party season with a white tuxedo playsuit.
I love how chic it is! I’m also obsessed with snake print (who isn’t?!) so these heels were a no brainer.”

The Dress

Jennifer, Junior Fashion Editor

I’m constantly on the hunt for the perfect LBD and this one ticks all my boxes for party season! The ruched fabric makes it super flattering and you can’t go wrong with a mini dress and killer heels for the office Xmas party. The diamante straps make it just the right amount of extra too! This will be my go-to for years to come.

The Skirt

Jen, Editorial Manager

 " What I love about this skirt is it’s after-party appeal; I’ll go all-out and dress it up for the work do (because there’s no such thing as too much sparkle at Christmas) and once the festive season has lost its shine, I’ll pair it with a sweat and trainers for a day look that’s just the right amount of extra." 

The Co-ord

Roxanne, Press Assistant

  “I’m not really a dress kind of girl so this sequin matching set is perfect for our Christmas party. Who doesn’t love sequins at party season? I’ll be wearing with barely there heels and a cute clutch bag for my phone and make-up essentials!”  

Mens

Jack, Category Assistant

“I’m all about a statement jacket at the minute – especially for after work drinks. This camo bomber jacket gets my vote for party season. I’ll wear it with a black logo tee, matching chinos and leather loafers.”
