Style Advisor: The New Party Update

If, like us, you’ve found the topic of your group chat this week has focused on the tear-jerk value of this year’s Christmas TV adverts, you’ll be well aware that the festive season has arrived. As you fix a date to pick your tree and break out into impromptu renditions of Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’, the party invitations start rolling in. Between family engagements, festive drinks with friends, dinners, cocktail events and work ‘dos, it can feel like the weeks leading up to Christmas are a mad dash to see everyone you’ve ever met before the 25th. For all its festive cheer, it can be a tricky time to navigate. That’s why we’re taking the stress out of party dressing with three effortlessly stylish looks for any occasion. Get your party on with Gucci, Balmain and Vivienne Westwood. It’s time to hit the dance floor.

Make an entrance in Balmain’s precision cut blazer. Power shoulders, velvet, glitter and gilt details make for a show-stopping combination when worn with the Parisian label’s ultra-wide-leg trousers and sparkling stiletto heels. For women who take partying seriously.


Paint the town red in Vivienne Westwood’s signature Vian draped dress. Form-fitting in all the right places, this is party dress perfection at its most seductive. RSVP to a Giuseppe Zanotti gem-studded clutch and elegant barely-there sandals when you’re planning to steal the limelight at any occasion.
