The Ultimate Christmas Party Wear Guide

We know it’s still kind of Halloween theme. But with the festive season just around the corner, you can’t go wrong with prepping ourselves in advance for all the Christmas parties that are coming our way. And we got kind of tired of that creepy Halloween stuff, we need some magic.

For many of you out there, the thought of Christmas parties will fill your mind with dread as the ‘what the hell do I wear’ thought crisis starts to kick in.

When it comes to the festive wardrobe, the principles are actually very simple – sleek, sparkly and sophisticated. However, there is very fine line between getting it right and turning sparkly into disco ball and sleek into trashy.

Here are three golden Christmas party rules that will become your best friend during the festive party season:

Christmas Partywear order xanax online with prescription Rule #1: Colour

Pick a colour and stick with it. Whether you are going for black, pink, red, green or white – whatever colour you choose will become the main focus around your entire Christmas outfit so make sure it is something pretty, chic and most importantly not what you did last year.

Go outside your comfort zone and for a colour you would never have chosen before because there is no set colour rule for Christmas (unless you’re going to an all-white winter wonderland party) so go crazy and have fun!

However, if you are not feeling so daring and want to channel your inner celebrity A-lister chic then a classis LBD is the way to go. The beloved little black dresses are a classic style that will never go out of fashion and are a great to wear even when the festive season is over.

Christmas Partywear Rule #2: Accessories

Accessories are your best friend in the festive season. If you are going for a simple dress that you found in the back of your wardrobe that you think would look great then run with the idea and bling it up with some killer accessories!

If you are on a budget then going with a simple dress that you can wear again and again is the best way forward. Even if you have already worn the dress before to a party that is being hosted by the same people, as long as you accessorise your outfit right they will never know any different.

For example if you are wearing a simple pretty gown, dress it up with some killer strappy sandals, a pretty sparkly clutch bag and some matching statement jewellery and you are ready to go!

Christmas Partywear Rule #3: BLING!

Sparkle, Sparkle and more SPARKLE! As you may have guessed, the bling-ier your outfit the better! There can never be enough sparkle at Christmas so the last and final tip for your Christmas partywear is the most important of them all.

If you are wearing a simple dress then it is important to add your sparkle in other places such as jewellery, sparkly clutch bag, shoes and maybe add little accents like a broach on your dress or in your hair for added wow.

Do not worry about overdoing the bling because Christmas is the only time of year when you can never have enough sparkle so make sure that you go all out and don’t forget about that shimmery eyeshadow!
