Shine On! Our Top 5 Christmas Party Looks

Shine On! Our Top 5 Christmas Party Looks

December is only a week away which means lots of Christmas parties, festive events and work nights out, leaving us all with the eternal question: What shall I wear? In this post, we cover 5 key looks for the season, so no matter what the event – or your personal style – you will be ready to own the Christmas party!

A bit daring, unconventional, and always on trend, the Edgy Girl does things her own way to unforgettable effect. Our favourite looks bring out your inner rock chick and feature metallic elements, a bit of leather and some ultra-cool menswear styling.

To get the look, pair the V by Very Frill One Shoulder Leather Dress with River Island’s Gothic Tassel Earrings and a pair of Mango Dark Metallic Ankle Boots. Or rock an all in one like this V by Very Unique Asymmetric Sequin Detail Jumpsuit, add these Lost Ink Party Sandals and grab onto your Juicy Couture Silver Star Clutch.

Beauty must-have: It’s all about the eyes! Try Illamasqua Powder Eyeshadow in Superstitious before adding dramatic stroke of eyeliner with the Slick Stick.


The Girly Girl understands the power of femininity. Whether through bright hues, a splash of florals, or some ruffle detailing, you can let your inner beauty shine through! We’ve chosen a pair of pink party dresses and accessories to play up your girlish charms.

Pair our first frock, the V by Very Volume Sleeve Embellished Dress with these frill shoe boots in blush for a contrast in texture. For our second look, line-up up the Coast Velvet Pleated Dress with this Accessorize folk floral zip top clutch bag and the Diamante Heeled Sandal from V by Very.

Beauty must-have: For an ultra-feminine look, perfect your loose waves with the Babyliss Smooth and Wave



What can we say about the sophisticate other than she exudes confidence and a timeless sense of style? Mixing runway trends with classic elements and unexpected details, there’s a touch of old-school glamour about this look.

We’re loving separates and by coupling a trendy Longline Tux Jacket, with Cigarette Trousers and a Sequin Bow Back Cami (all by V by Very) you can create a timeless look. To add a touch of the unexpected, slip on these Carvela Embellished Courts to really dial up the glamour. If you’re looking for some finishing touches then go no further than this Faux Fur Scarf and Forever Unique Clutch Bag.

Beauty must-have: For a classic red lip use the legendary Elizabeth Arden Red Door Lipstick.




For the belle of the ball, there’s only one way to go: full-on glam. If you’re going to a formal event this holiday season, you want to make the memory last a lifetime. So go big, go bold, and revel in the moment.

For your red-carpet moment we look to our very own Myleene Klass and her mesmerising new party collection. Make an entrance in this stunning Lace Maxi Dress with a pair of River Island Barely There Sandals. Or for a high-impact look, go for bold colour with the Myleene Klass off-the-shoulder tie maxi dress in cobalt, and team it up with the glittering Accessorize Samta embellished zip top bag and Miss KG Asymmetric Heeled Sandals in Silver.

Beauty must-have: For a radiant glow, use Illamasqua Beyond Highlighter to achieve an all over illuminating finish.



There are so many events over the festive season that call for low-key chic. From holiday lunches at the office to parties at the kids’ school, you need a go-to outfit that will take you from desk to dining with minimal fuss – but will still have you looking radiant. Something easy to dress up, or down, as the occasion demands!

If there’s one piece that meets all of the above requirements, it’s the V by Very Unique One Sleeve Top. It’s a stand out piece and is guaranteed to make a statement when combined with your favourite skinny jeans for a smart casual look. Flattering, comfortable and super-versatile, this River Island Jumper Dress will become a staple of your winter wardrobe. Dress it up with a pair of River Island’s mesh shoe boots, add a Metallic Crossbody Bag and you’re on your way – wherever the holiday season may take you.

Beauty must-have: Go for a natural finish and use the True Match Foundation from L’Oreal Paris to complete this effortless style.
