With the festive party season in full swing ranging from glitzy office parties in swanky hotels and restaurants to casual evenings with friends and family this is perhaps that one time in the year when that age-old question really counts; ‘what am I going to wear?!’

Whether you are looking for that smart tailored look, that bold winter bright outfit or the demure classic little black dress, we have searched the high street and our favourite online stores to bring you a selection of festive fashion outfits that we hope goes some way in answering that age old question!

Belle of the ball

Get glitzy and glam in this gorgeous dress – the rose gold pairing might seem a bit over the top but it is the Christmas party season after all so if not now, then when..?! Inspired by disco and glam-rock silhouettes from the 70s, Halpern’s design looks like it’s come straight out of Studio 54. These statement shoes in a rose gold mirror leather and standing on a crystal heel, along with the luxurious wool jacket is the perfect accessory.

Disco queen

Combining sequins and animal print in one beautiful dress is this asymmetrical one shoulder number. We love how it’s covered in sequins and arranged into a zebra pattern which falls to a thigh-grazing hem with a ruffle on one side. Why not take the bling theme right down to the shoes in these glitzy sandals?
