Whether you’re debating how early is too early to put up your Christmas tree or happily tucking into a (couple) of mince pies, party season is officially back with a bang. As if over night, our social calendars have gone from lazy weekends to work drinks, early nights to all-nighters, and before we know it, we’ll be all booked up. Not that we’re complaining, though. After a couple of years of quiet Christmases, 2022 is the year to go all out.
There’s no better time of year to dress up and show out than the festive period, and in the months between November and New Year’s, you’ll find us in a particularly special collection of clothes designed to shake off the seasonal blues. Sequin dresses, strokeably soft velvets and plenty of sparkly accessories are guaranteed to bring out your inner party animal (we sure have missed it), but where do you begin when putting together the right party outfit? I think I’ve found the answer.
Before you book your taxi, let’s get to the good part: outfit planning. Each event requires a slightly different kind of outfit. For example, the fun, cocktail party dress might be a little bit much for the intimate family dinner. (Although, I will always advocate for glitter.) So in order to help you put together a look for the big night ahead, I’ve assembled five outfits that will have you covered for everything from getting Christmas drinks with friends to seeing in the New Year. So sit back, relax, and scroll through the gallery below for the only five party outfit ideas you’ll need this winter.
