Expecting a flurry of invitations over the festive season?  It’s never to early to plan ahead.  If you need a little outfit inspiration, we have you covered for every occasion.

Black tie bling

If you cannot wear a floor length gown embellished with gold and silver stars to a black tie event at Christmas, when can you?  This sleeveless number by London-based designer Jenny Packham is perfect for charity galas, awards ceremonies and black tie soirees. It features a sheer mesh overlay that’s intricately decorated with sequins and an elegant mini train at the back.

Red carpet ready

Want to channel classic Hollywood glamour as you hit the red carpet?  Try Stella McCartney’s Primrose gown. This dress is crafted from stretch-crepe fabric and features a sweetheart neckline, spaghetti thin straps and a sophisticated back train.  This beautiful fit-and-flare floor length dress is designed to contour the silhouette for a sexy-yet-elegant look.  This statement dress will certainly turn heads on the red carpet.

Failsafe little black dress

Wear this dress to your office Christmas party and then straight to the nightclub after.  This LBD from Armani ticks all the right boxes. It’s a thigh-skimming shift dress with three-quarter length sleeves and a high neckline. It features a flurry of silver sequins that sparkle across the collarbone. Pair with black heels and minimal jewellery for an understated look.

Merry and bright

This stunning red dress is by Vivienne Westwood Anglomania.  It is constructed from lightweight red crinkled georgette fabric and features an asymmetric hem with a gathered front. It’s a killer party frock that is beautifully designed and very easy to wear. Simply pair with silver sandals and you’re ready to hit the dance floor.

Wrap up warm

Wrap up warm on cold winter evenings in this white faux fur coat by Pepe Jeans. This relaxed fit coat features notched lapels and two fully functional pockets (perfect for stashing a lipstick and your taxi fare). Pepe Jeans are known for their premium quality clothing and their Cameron Teddy Coat is no exception.  It’s a versatile coat that’ll wear all winter long.  Throw on over skinny jeans or wear with a dress.

Stunning skirts

This year, Coast have designed a number of different statement skirts, each in a metallic jacquard print with exaggerated volume in the high-low style.  They’ll work for any special occasion this winter.  Pair with any of Coast’s coordinating Bardot or crop tops for a stylish, polished look.

Winter wedding

If your friend or family member is getting married this winter and you’re looking for the perfect outfit for the occasion, try the Coco dress by Shrimps. This stylish black mini is made from luxury taffeta and features a velvet flocked polka dot print. The designer has embellished the high neck collar and cuffs with iridescent beads.

Fabulous footwear

Yes, 2016 is the year of the flat shoe and even Victoria Beckham has ditched the heels on several occasions.  But, tis the season to be fabulous and fearless.  Look for sleek stiletto heels with metallic detailing or sequin embellishments. We love these from Vivienne Westwood (left) and Stella McCartney (right).


Happy holidays!
