Ultimate party outfit refreshers


A great look can make or break a night out. Feel confident wherever you’re headed this festive season with our style tips, in partnership with Smint.

Work drinks, family reunions, friends’ get-togethers – ‘tis the season where getting merry much of the time is pretty much compulsory. And that degree of merry-making needs some showstopping partywear to keep the momentum up from your first sip of mulled wine to the last train home. Here are our wardrobe essentials to get you through this most social of all seasons.

Demand disco

If you can’t wear a disco-inspired black and gold starred sequin jumpsuit for New Year’s Eve, then when can you? Never. And that would be a travesty. So buy this now and don’t regret lost opportunities.

The dark stars

Earrings get serious this season and none more so than these hand-crafted sterling silver and rose gold plated black rhodium stars that glitter beautifully under the lights. Perfect for those with a bohemian spirit and a rebellious edge.

The Showstopper

The sequins and tassels on this sleeveless party dress ensure you’ll make an entrance wherever you’re heading. Also, the fitted silhouette and layered bodice mean it’s incredibly flattering. Becca May Sequin Dress, Phase Eight, £169, phase-eight.com

Push the envelope

This envelope clutch from Dorothy Perkins is small enough not to feel cumbersome, but big enough to house all your essentials, plus an extra lipstick or two. Elegant, stylish and eye-catching – the perfect accessory for transitioning from day-to-night events.

Dancing shoes

From your work Christmas party to an epic New Year’s Eve, investing in new party shoes that make you never want to leave the dance floor are a must. These glittery Mary Jane-inspired pumps by Miu Miu epitomise the brand’s playful aesthetic. Plus, they’re comfortable. How many party shoes can boast that?
