The time to prepare your wardrobe for seasonal celebrations has arrived.

From glamorous office Christmas parties to elegant dinners with friends, end-of-year events call for special, elevated pieces. We take a look at the key trends and classic styles to own this party-season.

The Statement Dress

Turn heads with a show-stopping metallic dress. For a celebratory night out with the girls, wrap styles with long-sleeves work best for cooler months. Balloon sleeves are a seasonal favourite, adding a feminine flare to the look. Let the dress steal the show by pairing back with simple stilettos and understated jewelry.

Classic Styling

Bring sophistication to special holiday events with classic silhouettes and fabrications. Simple hues of porcelain and champagne pair elegantly with sparkling jewelry and strappy heels. Midi-length hems and fitted bodices create stunning, always-in-vogue silhouettes. Choose pieces with trending features like asymmetrical cuts, bow detailing and cowl-necklines. For added warmth, a faux fur shawl exudes old world glamour.

Modern Chic

A wide-leg jumpsuit is the ultimate modern look. Deep winter hues including black, emerald green and wineberry accentuate the sophistication of this style. For a dramatic party piece, experiment with a sequined wide-leg piece. Add a high ponytail, jeweled clutch and red lip to complete the look.

The Perfect Pants

For more casual Christmas catch-ups, a flattering pair of high-waist pants are the perfect option. Alternatively, tapered pants with bow or buckle detailing work well with a tucked-in blouse or cami. Add a leather biker jacket over your shoulders and slip in statement earrings for an effortlessly chic ensemble.  

Timeless Tops

Sheer blouses and bold bodysuits work perfectly for Christmas dinners and parties. A sequinned bodysuit is an event-ready option that is sure to draw the eye. Wear yours with your favourite jeans and block heels. We also love adding a sheer blouse to the party-wardrobe. Style with a faux-leather mini skirt and pointed-toe boots for a weather-appropriate party look.
