Very Christmas Party Outfit Ideas

Tuesday, December 17, 2013
This is a collaboration with Very, I have created three Christmas party outfits from the Very website. This is not a sponsored post, I am not being paid. As Christmas is nearly here, parties are starting and there is a festive thrill in the air - what you need is a fail safe party outfit. So even if you are late or pushed for time, these outfits are simple but festive ideas for the ultimate party season! 
All images from the Very website

Outfit one: I love any dress that has a classic style but with modern, glitzy details. I'm all about the simplistic Scandinavian style. This dress is the Little Mistress 2 in 1 Embellished dress (£60). I love the cream, black and antique gold shades. I also love the floaty skater style skirt that skims over those problem areas. I think the dress would look great with Shoe Box Imi Suede Platform Wedges (£25), they add height as heels do but with none of the discomfort. Finally some earrings, I love this set from Oasis (£10) which contains five pairs of earrings all of which would work with this outfit, in my opinion. You could wear a leather jacket over the top of this outfit and add some black tights for those colder wintry days. 

Outfit two: I love this style of dress, it is the Fearne Cotton Velvet Swing Dress (£39). Swing dresses are fantastic, especially during the Christmas period where you may have indulged in five too many mince pies, chocolates or cocktails. It covers lumps and bumps and still looks flattering, cute and party ready - although you could pair it with a black skinny belt if you wanted to. As the dress is fairly plain, I added the Ivy Glittery Clutch (£9, sale) which comes in numerous colours. I also added the gorgeous South Glitter Platform Shoes (£20, sale) for even more festive glitter!

Outfit three: My final festive party outfit, the dress is from the brand Little Mistress again and it the Lace Crossover Prom Dress (£52).I think the dress is just gorgeous, very feminine and chic. Again the skater style skirt is great for hiding problem areas. I have paired the dress with spiky black heels from Kurt Geiger, they are the Ezra Studded Leather Platform heels (£150). I am always lusting over Kurt Geiger heels/boots and these are just divine. You could pair the dress with patent black heels instead though. Following the black/antique gold theme of the dress with Cheska Chandelier Earrings (£10) for added glamour - an updo would be great with this dress to show off the earrings and the plunging neckline of the dress. 

Glossy black nails, nude lips and lots of lash action would be great with these outfits. There are my festive/new year party picks, to see more party wear check out the Very website, click here. x
