If all goes to plan, we will be making up for lost time this party season with the first office parties, New Year’s Plans and friends get togethers we’ve had since 2019. All that time in sensible clothing is making us crave sequins, feathers and all things shiny. It might feel a little early to be thinking about your December outfits, but now is in fact the best time to shop for party pieces or start reserving looks you’d like to borrow from rental sites.
Below we’ve charted five trends that we think you’ll see at every celebration this year. We have been careful to pick looks that are timeless, so you can wear them for many more Christmases to come and feel truly fabulous. December is time to have fun with your outfits, and play with texture, colour and bold accessories. For those who want a subtler take on party dressing, we recommend minimal pieces in satin fabrics, such as a slip skirt paired with a jumper, or a pair of leather trousers. Whatever your approach to party dressing, we have a feeling you’ll find at least one piece you’ll love below.
