The festive season is upon us and with it, the promise of festive parties. Be it the office Christmas party, a family party, the school Christmas fair – they all offer opportunities to dress up and indulge in wearing some sparkle that we may not consider at other times during the year. The stores are currently full of party wear that varies from the beautiful to the bizarre. Given that we will be seeing so much party dressing in the run up to Christmas and New Year, I thought it would be fun to do a mini- series on festive dressing.
I love the idea of festive parties. Prior to a party, in the recesses my mind, I am parading around in that lovely dress that I just bought, while having the perfect hair day and it just happens to be an unusually warm winters’ day. However, as we all know, things don’t always work out quite as elegantly as one may have envisioned. In reality, it is quite possible that you are running late from work, there is no time to wash your incredibly oily locks and it just happens to be the coldest winter day in 50 years! In these situations, it is always nice to have an easy breezy festive dress in your wardrobe that you can throw on in five minutes and be out the door.
This sparkly knit dress is pretty without being garish, easy to wear, easy to style, easy to buy, easy to return, you won’t freeze, and most importantly easy on the pocket! I have paired it with thick tights and heels for this ‘lookbook’ and added a green clutch for a pop of festive colour. I think this dress would also look great as a tunic top with black cigarette pants and high-heeled boots. I hope you enjoy this look and thank you so much for reading!
