CHRISTMAS PARTY PICKS

Hey everyone! With Christmas party season just around the corner (I am so excited I can't handle it), I thought it would be rude not to share with you some of the things I've been eyeing up online at the moment. I've tried to cater for a range of different occasions, from formal winter balls to more casual evenings.

Tippy Plunge Back Dress in Aubergine Tinsel - Motel Rocks (£35)

Seeing as I was doing a party post, I thought it would be rude not to include Motel Rocks in my list. Their party dresses are always on point and they have a range of  amazing metallics and sequins in at the moment. This dress caught my eye particularly because of the plunge back detailing which I think is just gorgeous. This dress could be quite versatile and if worn in the right ways I reckon it could be pulled off in the day time as well as at night. I'm obsessed with metallic t shirt dresses at the moment - they keep catching my eye in the shops and I don't reckon it'll be long until I invest in one!


Lurex Crop Top in Black - Topshop (£22)

This top is another piece which I think could be really versatile.  I can imagine it paired with a black leather pencil skirt and heels for an evening occasion, or just jeans and flats for a casual day. I just love sparkly things at this time of year and the fact this could be worn everyday is a huge selling point for me. I actually managed to snap this top up on eBay earlier this week (shh)!


Embellished Back Maxi Dress - ASOS (£35)

How gorgeous is this dress? Obviously it's a much more formal choice than any of the other things I've chosen, but I think it's a really simple and chic way to make a statement. Once again, I was really drawn to the back detailing, and I think the open back on this dress is really classy and "sexy" (ugh that word.)


Satyra Bardot Skater Dress in Black - Missguided (£17.99)

This dress is such a steal at under £20! It's a timeless style that would be perfect for pretty much any occasion. You can't go wrong with an LBD and I love the off the shoulder style of this dress. You could easily throw this on with a pair of heels and a dark lipstick and be ready to go.


Jill Tartan Tailored Blazer in Green - Missguided (£34.99)
Ambrosia Tartan Tailored Shorts in Green - Missguided (£19.99)

This is a bit of a different choice, but I really think that suits and separates are going to be a huge thing this party season. They're such a classy and androgynous way to make a statement. I've had my eye on this particular blazer for a while now and I think it would be the perfect finishing touch to outfit for a winter evening. The great thing about separates is that you could wear them together or on their own - think of all the potential outfits!

Have you got any Christmas parties coming up?
