It’s Christmas party season and that can only mean one thing: you’re on the lookout for a stellar outfit. With so many amazing designs out there, the choice can be a little overwhelming. So, I’ve rounded up all the trending styles to help you find your ideal Christmas party outfit!

Whether you’re on the hunt for a feisty animal print mini dress or the perfect glittery show-stopper, these on-trend styles are guaranteed to be a huge hit!

Sparkle Bright With Sequins

Sequins are making a comeback, and I just can’t get enough! Boasting a strong glitzy 80s vibe, the shimmery embellishment meets all your Christmas needs.

Trade in your classic LBD for a glitzy bodycon dress, off-the-shoulder jumpsuit or wrap blazer dress. All eyes will be on you.

Feel Luxurious In Velvet

Velvet has been on-trend for the past three seasons and it’s showing no signs of slowing down! While celebs continue to flaunt this luxury fabric on the runway (think Blake Lively at the Cannes Film Festival, Rita Ora at the Grammy party and Gigi Hadid at the New York Fashion Show), velvet is still the must-have fabric on the high street too.

From v-necked bodycon dresses, to flirty strappy jumpsuits and sexy split trousers, velvet is a Christmas party outfit essential.

Look Sleek In Satin

If you want your Christmas party outfit to look effortlessly chic, satin is the way to go. Not only does this shiny and delicate fabric look incredible, but it feels amazing too.

I’m obsessed with the flawless split-front dresses available in an array of eye-catching colours. Alternatively, pair a sultry wrap-front mini dress with slender heels for an elegant evening look, or flaunt a pin tuck dress that shows off your curves. This season it’s all about silky satin.

Explore Your Rebellious Side In Suede

While leather jackets and motorbike trousers are well-established wardrobe staples, leather's near cousin is becoming a classic trend too. That’s right! Suede is one of the most coveted fabrics for the 2018-2019 season, allowing you to create a chic yet sexy and rebellious Christmas party outfit.

For head-to-toe suede glamour, accessorise your mini, maxi or bandeau dress with a pair of strappy suede heels and a fabulous suede clutch. It just screams sophistication!

Unleash Your Wild Side With Animal Print

From leopard to tiger and snake print, animal-inspired patterns are back in fashion. A centre-piece at the New York Fashion Show, these fabulous designs have taken over the high streets too. Glossies, it’s time to unleash your sassy beast!

I love a good pair of leopard print pants with a sexy plunge body suit, while a midi slip dress or a square-necked mini dress in feisty snake skin are also stunning Christmas party outfit choices.
