Unlike a birthday, promotion party or leaving do, a Christmas party is the perfect neutral party where there isn’t a star of the show - but that doesn’t mean you can’t command the attention of the room.
There isn’t one set rule for how to dress at a Christmas Party, unless specified by the organisers, so you could go for casual festive fashion or sophisticated seasonal style. Don’t worry, we’ll cover them all.
Whether your dress code is formal or just smart, there is a general consensus that darker colours are more seasonal and brighter colours should be reserved for summer months.
The right colours to wear for Christmas are; navy/dark blue, dark/olive green, burgundy, red, mustard yellow/ochre.
Without fail, tartan emerges as a festive favourite year after year. Incorporating some tartan elements into your look is a quick and easy way to make a non-festive outfit look like it’s in keeping with the seasonal style.
If there is one thing Christmas allows, it’s a bit of sparkle. Perhaps it’s the ‘Christmas magic’ or just the insane amount of glitter on every Christmas card and wrapping paper, but sparkle has become a key feature in Christmas attire.
Sequins, beading and the dreaded glitter all make regular appearances at this time of year, so embrace the festivities and all the glitters with it.
