The secrets to dressing for the party season might just be found in the names of some of our favourites; think Dasher for dashing, Blitzen for a little glisten and glitter and of course we cannot forget Dancer for dancing.
Up until this point we might very well have been in disbelief that 2020 is just around the corner but the time for denial is over as there is no mistaking that the festive season is in full swing. Yes, it’s time to get a little jingle on!
Think seasonal statements, playful pieces with ruffles and cheeky cut outs; jewel inspired tones and bold bright hues and if ever there was a time where sequins were appropriate both on and off the dance floor, it’s now. “Tis the season’.
For those who lean more toward tradition, while it it may not seem revolutionary, never mistake classic for tired. Tried and true and easily elevated with a little sparkle on you’re feet and statement making jewels, classic pieces are the hallmark of your festive wardrobe.
Of course we have done the groundwork for you, sourcing our top picks of the season straight from your favourite stores. To see them come to life head down to the digital runway in the fashion precinct, but for now, read below for your pre-shopping inspiration…time to make that list and check it twice!
For some serious sparkle in rich jewel tones you can’t go past the gorgeous Collections Ombre Sequin Mini Dress available at Myer. Paired back with a subtle metallic stiletto from Midas and bold statement jewellery from Mimco this is the showstopper of the season and the perfect dancing partner.
White has long been a popular and somewhat traditional choice for Christmas day.
Soft floaty maxi skirts can also make the perfect strapless midi dress – look for fun and interesting details like the ruffle on this maxi from Diish to create a look that’s all your own. Layer with fine jewels, pair back with a heel and you will be picture perfect. ‘Did someone say ‘annual family Christmas card’?
And for the boys… why not dress to impress this festive season. Swap out the jeans and tee for a splash of ‘dashing’. Suit yourself up in a two-piece linen suit from target and add a pop of colour with a printed shirt for some festive fun.
For Christmas day, a tailored pair of shorts is made complete with a sports coat and certainly won’t fail to impress; keep the sneakers at home and swap them out for a pair of brogues or loafers. Dress to impress.
And from all of us we wish you a very ‘well-dressed’ and happy festive season… See you in 2020!
