From colourful pieces from Aritzia to embellished LBD’s from the likes of Maje and Ted Baker this season sees brights take on sparkle, as embellishment and shine take centre stage. Turn heads in a jewel encrusted mini or dazzle on the dance floor with a body con midi dress. Studded details and cool metallic colours are what to aim for, while anything with chiffon or lace also makes the grade. Of course, no evening out in winter is complete without a coat and when you’re ready to make your exit a belted wrap style from Mackage will ensure you stay cosy as you await your carriage.
Strappy stilettos and blocked heeled evening shoes are all she needs to be party-ready from the ankle down this festive season. Show off your Christmas pedicure with studded peep-toes from the likes of Stuart Weitzman and Aldo or lengthen your legs in a tapered Jimmy Choo stiletto, great for giving the illusion of extra height. A pencil heel is a signature 2021 style that lends itself perfectly to Christmas parties. Give this one the spotlight it deserves with a ribbed midi skirt or body-hugging LBD and opt for jewellery in paired back shades of monochrome and silver.
Nothing looks better by your side at Christmas than an evening bag to complement your outfit and this season it’s all about styles that feature statement details. Oversized clutches from the likes of Tory Burch, petite leather bagettes from Kate Spade and delicate cross body-bags (a la Michael Kors) are what to aim for; with metallic accents scoring a big thumbs up. Jewellery-wise, sparkle is a girl’s best friend this Christmas, so seek out drop earrings and necklaces with diamanté embellishments – Michael Hill and Swarovski are great options for ready to wear glitz. For added glamour, pair a thin bracelet watch with a bejewelled hair slide for a nod to Hollywood screen sirens of yesteryear.
