Tis the season to wear glitter falalalaalalaaaa. If you didn’t sing along to that you need to take a long hard look at yourself.
I’ve been avoiding the C word for a while, even though my St Nick mug has been sitting proudly of my desk for 2 weeks or so, however with my first Christmas ‘do’ in less than 1 week, I thought I better get my ass into gear and find all the best Christmas outfits to get you into the Christmas spirit.
This post comes with a warning, if you are looking for conservative, plain Patricia party outfits, you’ve definitely come to the wrong place and should probably trot off down to BHS to find your perfect Christmas outfit.
Christmas Look 1 – Velvet
Monki Green velvet dungarees £40 Absolutely delicious, even more delicious with a leopard print roll neck underneath…. no you’re extra.
River Island Navy Velvet Jacket £75 On the slightly pricier side, but if that’s not an investment, I don’t know what is.
Asos Design Velvet Slingbacks £45 Delicious
Marks and Spencer Velvet Midi Skirt £35 Team it with a sequin top to be extra extra
Lipsy Velvet bag £39 Burgundy and gold, 2 wonderful things
ASOS Velvet Maxi Dress £55 Currently out of stock, gahhhh, but would be perfect for NYE.
Christmas Look 2 – Leopard Print
& Other Stories Leopard Print Skirt £59 Dress it up for the Christmas do and dress it down for Christmas day with a lovely slouchy red jumper.
Topshop Leopard Print Fur Coat £59 I will just leave this here and say no more.
New Look Leopard Print Velvet Dress £28 This ticks so many boxes, leopard print, velvet and curve. YASSS.
Flounce London Red Leopard Print Dress £38 An absolute delight if you want something a bit different this year but in keeping with the leopard print theme.
ASOS Design Leopard Print Shoes £50 Just what you need to add a bit of interest to your LBD or LRD.
River Island Velvet Leopard Print Top £32 Perfect with a pair of black skinnies, leopard print shoes and massive gold earrings.
Christmas Look 3 – Sequins
Zara Red Sequin Skirt £69.99 Slinky and red and bright and everything I love in life and more. Granted it probably wouldn’t fit me because Zara sizing is shit, but that’s another discussion for another day.
Mango Pink Sequin Earrings £17.99 Absolutely guaranteed to add sass to any given outfit. I’m definitely not adverse to wearing them with the red sequin dress……
Zara Red Sequin Dress £69.99 Yes this is just the dress version of the skirt, but can you see why I couldn’t resist?
ASOS Sequin and Velvet Dress £65 Ticking 2 festive boxes, you can’t go wrong with this sexy little number.
& Other Stories Gold Sequin Skirt £59 I LOVE YOU SWEET CHILD
ASOS Sequin Wrap Body £40 Now if you can’t see this in your Christmas wardrobe, you need to have a word with yourself.
Christmas Look 3 – LRO (Little Red Outfit)
H&M Red Dress £17.99 I tried this on yesterday and looked like a bag of shit, but I think that was mainly because I was trying to squeeze myself into something that didn’t fit. Bargain buy at £17.99 too.
M&S Tartan Trousers £39.50 I tried these on yesterday and haven’t stopped thinking about them since…… good job that Mand ordered them for me as a surprise this morning
H&M Red Flower Applique Dress £79.99 This is the most wonderful dress, it feel lovely and I didn’t dare try it on because I definitely don’t have £79.99 for a dress
Christmas Look 4 – Sparkle
Silver Jumpsuit Monki £40 the perfect shape to accentuate a curvy figure the silver sparkle is perfect for the christmas party.
ASOS Sparkle Clutch Bag £22 currently in the sale for £22, get in there my son.
Oliver Bonas Sparkle Jumper £59.50 Something fun to fling on for your office lunch or few a few snowballs down the pub
Oliver Bonas sparkle Trousers £65 Paired with a pair of bright pink metallic shoes on their website and I’m 110% here for that.
H&M Gold Headband £6.99 I won’t tell you how long I stood at the Alice band stall picking which headband to go with, I got in and out of the queue at least 4 times. Suffice to say, they’ve got a good selection. I went with the burgundy velvet one, but this is cute to sex up any simple outfit.
Whistles Sparkle Skirt £105 Currently on sale on Very.com for £105…. pricey, but an investment I’d say.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my Christmas Party Edit as much as I have collating it and basically window shopping for hours on end. Let me know what you’ll be wearing to your Christmas parties this year.
