Embellished party outfits

Oh, jewels and embellishments how we’ve missed you! There’s nothing a little bit of bling and sparkle can’t fix, which is why we’re so excited that these statement details are back for the coming party season 💎.

From subtle dustings of diamantés on camisoles and bag straps to sparkling beads and chains, the embellished details on offer this party season are the kind that’ll give the Christmas tree some competition. 👀

Boucle party outfits

2. Bouclé Is Back

Calling all Emily in Paris fans: not only is season two airing just before Christmas but channelling the chic Parisian style seen on the show has never been easier, as this party season bouclé is back.

Championed by French fashion houses for decades, this winter you’ll see everything from cute must-have co-ords to head-turning mini dresses and timeless coats in bouclé textures. The classic nature of the weave ensures you’ll get plenty of wear out of the pieces at the string of events coming your way and be able to treasure them in your wardrobe for years to come.

Sequin part outfits

3. Sprinkling of Sequins

Come on… you didn’t think we could write a festive party trend feature without including sequins, did you? Last year, we didn’t see enough of them, which is why they’re back and saturating everything in sight this party season.

From retro jumpsuits drenched in sparkles and sequin-smothered camisoles to blazer and trousers co-ords for head-to-toe shimmer, you’ll be twinkling from every angle on the dancefloor this Christmas. ✨

Hanky hem tops party outfits

4. Retro Hanky-Hem Tops

First seen at festivals during the summer months, retro scarf tops are back for party szn, demonstrating that they’re versatile enough for dancing the day away in a muddy field and heading to a cocktail bar after dark 🍸.

Worn by style icons Rihanna and Camila Coelho, we’ll be taking a leaf out of their book and pairing our hanky-hem tops with boyfriend jeans or cargo trousers to play up the ‘90s vibes.

Polka dot party outfits

5. Seeing Spots

The secret to getting spotted at any event this party szn? Opting for polka dots as your print of choice, of course!

This social season, everything from jumpsuits and blazers to blouses and midi dresses are dappled in the timeless dots. It’s the little updates that give them more of a luxurious feel – we’re talking satin fabrics, unexpected pops of colour and sheer mesh panels.

Party outfits with chain detailing

6. Chain Reaction

Chain details have featured on our accessories for the past couple of seasons now, in the form of drop earrings, necklaces and bag straps. But this winter they’ve found their way into our wardrobes, too. ⛓

From detailing the cutouts on dresses to trimming the edges of necklines, the jewellery-inspired nature of the chain links add instant polish and glam to any piece ✨.

Jeans and a nice top party outfits

7. Jeans and a (Really) Nice Top

Ah, jeans and a nice top. Where would we be without this classic combo? Last year we may have had to switch it up to joggers and a nice top, but this party season we’re welcoming our jeans back with open arms. 🥰

Perfect for every plan, we’ll be wearing the duo everyone loves for everything from mulled wine nights and festive brunches to those last-minute plans that pop up without warning. Just add a pair of barely-there heeled sandals and a smoky eye and you’ll be set for any event.

Peplum tops and dresses party outfits

8. Pretty Peplums

PSA: Peplum details are back. Yep, you heard that right. A figure-flattering silhouette known for its nipped in waist and flared hemline, this party szn you’ll see them feature on everything from statement tops to babydoll dresses – the square neckline and empire waist of the latter is perfect for a night of free-flowing bubbly and taking to the dance floor 💃.

Play up the retro feel of the shape by styling it with a pair of towering platform heels and a micro bag.

Little dresses party outfits

9. Make Mine a Mini

When it comes to party szn wardrobe heroes, few are more failsafe and iconic than a mini dress, and for good reason. Whatever the dress code, there’s always a thigh-grazing mini for the occasion. 💁‍♀️

From ‘90s-inspired LBDs to flattering ruching and cutout details the Kardashians would envy, there’s a mini to suit every style this season. A pair of leg-lengthening heels, a cute clutch and a swipe of gloss are the only accessories you’ll need.
