metallic evening Tops
Christmas Party Outfits That Shimmer

Whether your style is to be the human the glitter ball at your Christmas party or you favour a fairy dusting of Christmas sparkle, metallic fabrics are the quickest way to glam up your party look. 

This Jade Metallic burnout fabric, pictured on the flutter sleeve, Michael Top, has a lustre that pops - great for catching the eye and for party photo opportunities! Paired with straight leg, black evening pants, the look is vintage oriental in its glamour.

The texture of the season, the metallic glint of lurex-like Glam brings Studio 54 decadence to the party. In black, as with the Denver Pant (pictured), the impression is subtle while shades of Sapphire, Jade and Raspberry ooze that cocktail spirit.

Christmas Party Season Essential: A black cami top will wear as an understated accompaniment to a statement jacket to complete your Christmas party outfit. Pair too, with cocktail pants and evening skirts and a classic black top is transformed! A good cami top is worth the investment- you’ll not believe the number of outfits that you’ll be able to pull together with just one simple investment piece!

SHIMMER JERSEY evening tops

A softer approach to sparkle, shimmer fabrics are less reflective than sequins allowing the light to play more with colour and tone to create an eye-catching effect. Luxurious draping will heighten the glamour of shimmer fabrics so look for softly fitting tops.

Enhance your shimmer factor and up your sophistication levels with a necktie in shimmering Xanadu. A versatile styling piece, the Cyrus Necktie not only transforms necklines but waistbands as well. Try it wrapped around the waist of the Brooke Tube skirt to create a high-waisted effect or wear low slung on the hips for pure disco sass.

Investment Pants for every occasion
The Ultimate Evening Pant

Invest in an elegant black evening pant and you will be sure of evening style forever!

Straight-cut, wide leg trousers, the Denver Pant in Black Glam offers lightweight luxury. An internal elasticated waistband sits comfortably at the waist, giving a clean line through the hips and legs. Ever-classic in black, the Glam fabric elevates this evening trouser with subtle glitz. Easy to wear and easy to care for, these glamorous pants are perfect for travel and cruisewear elegance as well as Christmas party style.

Go for a lounge vibe with a rakish and decadent smoking jacket. Comfortable and unstructured, a smoking jacket allows for ease of movement on your journey from cocktail hour to dinner date and dancing, should the mood take you.

Be flexible in the Romy Fluid Jacket in Black Velour’s waterfall front and subtly stretchy velour fabrication. Play with texture and pair with the Eddy Cami in Black Xanadu and the sequin glam of the. Styles Pant in Silver Sequin to complete the irresistibly louche lounge look.

Jewel Tone Eveningwear
The Cocktail Jumpsuit

The new cocktail dress, the jumpsuit is big news for the 2023 party season.

The Paris Jumpsuit features a wrap bodice, flutter sleeves and wide, cropped legs to aid your inner dancefloor diva. In your choice of Sapphire blue or Jade green, jewel tones create instant glamour and opulence.

evening Style 3 Ways

Vintage Goddess

For a more versatile approach to Christmas party dressing, create a faux dress look for the big event with coordinating separates you can re-style for your other seasonal events. Still immersed in vintage elegance, the Michael Top and Liane Skirt in Bronze Foil shimmer as one as well as two to create three possible outfits.


The LCD - The Little Classic Dress

For a more subtle approach to Christmas party outfits, invest in a classic dress that will see you through event after event, season after season. Little black dresses always steal the crown as the queen of the party dress but Navy is a great alternative. Less lady in waiting and more queen consort, a navy blue dress epitomises refined sophistication in the face of the overtness of black.

For fun flirty, party dress looks look for skirts that skim the knees. The Oona Dress balances a twirling skirt with elegant ¾ sleeves while the Maree Dress goes for youthful short sleeves. 

Longer line skirts increase the sophistication of a party outfit. Ruffle hemlines like that of the Bettina Reversible Dress give enhanced femininity as well as extended length, while the fluted sleeves of the Portia Dress define the silhouette of her midi-length dress.

With so many great fashion options at your fingertips, you're sure to sparkle this Christmas party season! - enjoy!
