The Ultimate Party Wear Cheat Sheet

Can you hear those sleigh bells ringing? Holiday season is finally here and we know you’ve got a whole lot of people to meet and places to be. It’s only normal for us to want to be out and about, living our best fully-vaxxed lives after what feels like forever. But before we dive into the season of merrymaking and get on a plane to see our loved ones, is your vacation wardrobe ready?

Make a statement in a mini dress and towering heels. 


Dressing up for dinner dates and parties can be a task, but we’ve rounded up the best of the season’s offerings that are ready for the picking. Match the holiday vibe with our festive edit. There’s something in store for everyone:


High Voltage

Make a statement in eye-catching pieces that spark joy at your next big gathering. Nothing says ‘festive’ like sequins, but if embellishments aren’t your thing, invest in metallic pieces to pair with muted separates to strike a balance. The Kiss mini bag from Chloé is definitely a winner!

Baby It’s Cold Outside

Don’t let low temperatures put a damper on the festivities. For garden parties in the great freezing outdoors, it’s all about smart layering. Throw on a jacket over your outfit that’s functional and doubles up as a style statement. Boots will keep your feet warm while you dance away the night.

Legs For Days

Minidresses are the foolproof solution to all our partywear woes. Opt for a classic LBD with sleeves and a plunging neckline, or a jewel-toned number with interesting cutouts this winter. Don’t let the cold keep you from wearing a strappy dress - layer it over a turtleneck and you’re good to go. Heels are mandatory, of course.

Modern Day Fairytale 

Embody the spirit of the season in an ensemble that’s straight out of a Disney princess fairytale. After all, Christmas is all about magic. Pair a voluminous tulle skirt with a fitted top that focuses on your décotellage. Finish your look with a purse that's equally sweet, roomy enough to just about hold your keys and lipstick.

A matching silk set is perfect for those lowkey family gatherings at home. Featuring striking prints, the elongated silhouette of the pants are sure to add a couple of inches to your stature. Complete your outfit with shiny flats for that holiday touch.
