The Partywear Edit

Did someone say party?

You’ve got the invites, now to find the outfits. Celebrate the festive season in style with these key partywear trends…

It's THAT time of year; it's party time! Your invite might be anything from an intimate soirée with friends to a formal black-tie work do, but the most important thing is that you have fun. And to do that you'll need to feel fabulous! We have all the partywear you could possibly want, whether your style is sparkly disco diva, or understated glamour with luxurious fabrics like velvet and silk. Don't forget your accessories for the finishing touch to complete your look. Cheers!

Disco fever officially hit the runways with designers looking to the 80s for inspiration. Re-create this go-to partywear trend with metallic and sequin mini dresses nipped in at the waist and exaggerated at the shoulders, or opt for rich textures from plush velvet to opulent satin. Embellished accessories and over-the-knee boots complete the look. 

If you can’t go all out for Christmas, then when can you? Embrace the spirit of the season with a festive colour palette of red and black; look to decadent gowns and maxi dresses with a dose of metallic or choose matching structured separates cut to fit and flatter. Discover more in our gift guide. 

What every winter wardrobe needs is a great coat to layer over the perfect party outfit. Make an entrance in a shaggy faux fur coat from brands including Jaeger and French Connection in a palette from classic neutrals to bold and bright. Don’t be afraid to experiment with proportion – the bigger, the better!

Cut a sophisticated silhouette this party season with classic tailoring. Swap the traditional black suit for structured blazers and coordinating tailored trousers in a contemporary colour palette of grey and navy, paired with a slim fit shirt or roll neck jumper for a trend-led twist. Find our more in our gift guide.   

The statement blazer takes centre stage of your party look with luxurious fabrics, opulent patterns and bold colours from rich navy to fuchsia pink. Paired with a neutral tailored trouser, keep the rest of your outfit pared-back to let the blazer do the talking; a bow tie and a classic dress watch brings just the right amount of detail.
