Whether you’re going to a family Christmas meal, a night out with the girls, or the college ball, Christmas is the time to don that dress and your highest heels. What with buying everybody Christmas presents and all the social occasions that go with it, cash can be pretty tight at Christmas. So here are a few statement pieces that won’t break the bank but will propel you to the top of the style Christmas tree.
New Look is a firm favourite for affordable party season dresses, and this year Kelly Brook has expanded from the usual swimwear range to include an array of party frocks. The silver heavily sequinned mini dress at £50 is my favourite from the collection, it’s flirty while still edging on the safe side with the high neck and ¾ length sleeves. What is really special about this dress is the daringly low cowl back, so if you want a dress that will make you stand out from the crowd this year then this is the perfect dress for you.
Brocade is all over the high street at the moment and the foil prints are perfect to see you through the party season. In a range of different styles from waterfall hem dresses, to bodycon, pencil or skater skirts, you will struggle to find a piece you don’t like. Check out this gold sequin bodycon number from Missguided.
If you’re not really into print or the bold sequinned look, then Topshop’s stunning 1920’s take on a little black dress is for you. The gold bib gives just the right amount of glitz to the Christmas proceedings, and means you could probably get more wear out of the dress later in the year. What’s more, the fringing is very figure flattering, swinging around as you twirl across the dance floor. I would steer clear of a necklace with this dress and accessorise with a statement pair of earrings and a bangle.
If dresses aren’t your thing then don’t worry, leather shorts, cigarette pants, disco trousers, and the old faithful playsuit are all current alternatives that you could wear this party season. The main thing is that you feel comfortable and you can always glitz up any outfit with your accessories and make-up. However with Christmas being the one excuse people use to dress up, make the most of it.
