If You Only Buy One Party Outfit This Year, Make it This One

Is it me or has this year gone particularly quickly? As someone who is usually known to have planned, bought, (and often wrapped) presents by October, this Christmas has crept on me so quickly that I haven’t even had a chance to get to plan one of the most important aspects of the festive period. What to wear for party season.

Of course there are the classics that we can rely on year in, year out: the little black dress, or of course, jeans and a “nice top”, but there’s something about the spirit of 2022 that requires us to go all out and see out the year with a bang. With that in mind, I’ve noticed one particular party trend popping up all over the runways, and in turn, the high street, and it’s a full-throttle, high-octane, glamour look that’s guaranteed to get any party started–the sequin co-ord. 

Nothing says “party” quite like head-to-toe sparkles, and even if you’re a low key minimalist or dress devotee, I can promise you this might be the look to change your mind. An easy to wear outfit that already comes pre-styled (so you needn’t rush around finding which top to pair with those bottoms), and it just so happens to be comfortable too, so that means no cut-outs, no body-con, and no shapewear required, so you can get on with the good bit, enjoying your evening. 

Thankfully for us, the high street has delivered sequins in spades, and you can find some particularly good co-ords and suits from some of our favourites, and for as little as £55. So, if your social calendar is filling quickly and you were struggling to find an outfit, panic over. Keep scrolling for our pick of the best sequin party outfits to wear this Christmas, New Year and beyond. 

I love the elegant high neck. 

When paired with the top, this column skirt creates a flattering, streamlined silhouette. 

All this cami needs as the weather gets colder is a black blazer. 

Wide leg? Check. High waisted? Check. Plenty of sequins? Check, and check. These tick every box. 

It’s all about the rich emerald colour of this Whistles suit. 

Not into the fit of the trousers? No problem, there’s a co-ordinating pencil skirt too. 

Wear loosely and unbuttoned for the maximum cool factor. 

Another wide legged trouser worthy of acclaim. 

If a full sequinned look is a little too much, try Zara’s subtle take on the trend. 

These trousers will look just as good with a white t-shirt as they do with the co-ordinating top. 

£90 all in? Sign me up. You won’t find a better colour, fit or size range for this price. 

You will have almost certainly seen this (or the black colourway) sparkling in M&S store windows. 

The full co-ord is selling like hot cakes and regularly in and out of stock, so act fast. 

I never knew how much I liked brown sequins until now. 

There’s something very 90s about this midi skirt. 

For those still obsessed with the mini skirt, there’s a co-ord for you too. 

The floral design makes this sequin co-ord feel extra special.
