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.

Luxurious in leather
Letting this bold and bright gorgeous dress do all the talking – a simple black court shoe and this luxurious leather blazer is all you need to complete this outfit. On the pricier side, it will be an investment piece that you’ll use for years to come, not just for festive fashion.

Old school glam
Oozing old school Hollywood Glam is this luxe velvet midi dress that ticks all the fashion boxes. It features a beautifully draped style to one shoulder with a proper boned corset internal structure to provide ultimate lift and cinch you in all the right places. Metallic accessories finish off the outfit beautifully.
Versace Crystal-embellished Clutch | £1,730 | Net-A-Porter
New school LBD
This sparkly mini is made up of a myriad of sequins and is a perfect take on the classic little black dress. You can pair it with these classic ankle sock boots and an equally classic boyfriend blazer to give the outfit a little extra edge.
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?
This sleeveless satin jumpsuit in a narrow cut at the top with a stand-up collar with decorative gathers is a keeper. Its vibrant emerald green hue goes against the grain of the default sparkly dress and we are all for it. These black Louboutin shoe boots work so well with the outfit too.
She’s no wallflower
Guaranteed to turn heads is this chic maxi dress and the colour is everything too! Paired with classic ‘red bottoms’ for footwear and a chic gold bucket bag and it’s a match made in red heaven!
Gold Mini Bucket Bag | £19.99 to £15.99 | ZARA
Suave and sophisticated
The designer’s use of bold colours and vibrant prints is absolutely everything in this beautiful dress. This ‘Isa’ dress is made from silk-blend woven with metallic threads creating eye-catching swirls that shimmer in the light. Statement heels and a pink clutch compliment the look beautifully.
The lace texture and beautiful embellishment in this dress is just stunning in this beautiful shade of red, perfect for festive fashion. A classic strappy black heel and a statement bag is all you need to wear to complement this gorgeous dress.
