6 Styles to Dress for the Festive Season and Parties
This is the season to be jolly and wear gorgeous new outfits. With Christmas is just around the corner, you’ve probably got a long list of parties to go to. Plan your outfits in advance to look the best in every group photo for the upcoming week.
Need some help? We have put together some of the trendiest pieces and styles for this festive season. Glam out and bedazzle your loved ones with the following options!
1. Shiny Sequins
That’s right, sequins are making a comeback this party season, so it’s time you get your shine on. Here are some of our favourite ways to incorporate this style into your outfit. Try pairing a gorgeous champagne gold sequin dress with a pair of black heels or booties. If a full-sequin look seems intimidating, throw on a leather jacket and accessorize it with a simple ring or silver bracelet.
For the guys, the ASOS TALL Gold Sequin Bomber Jacket is a great add to every party animal’s wardrobe. Layer it on top of a basic shirt or tank top, and match it up with ripped dark jeans for a classic look.
On the contrary, if you feel like going for a much subtle look, opt for a sequins handbag or heels instead. These make a great accent to a simple black one-piece. Try out the New Look Disco Sequin Chain Bucket Bag, available via ASOS.
Price: USD 19.74 (bucket bag, U.P. USD 20.41), USD 60.01 (jacket)
2. Black goes a long way
Like Karl Lagerfeld once said, “one is never over-dressed or underdressed with a little black dress.” Black is a color that can never go wrong. Regardless of your skin tone or size, this is the go-to color and quintessential piece for anyone’s wardrobe. Accessorize your little black outfit with an edgy metallic necklace or arm cuff for an extra Christmas spark.
If you’re in for a bolder look, try going for interesting textures and cuts. That means intricate laces, metallic loops, frills and diagonal hems. Something Borrowed’s Flare Sleeve Lace Bodycon Dress on ZALORA is a great example. Have fun with the classic formula for your personalised style.
Price: RM 79 (U.P. RM 99)
3. Season Greetings
Go all festive with your outfit this year with reds and greens. If you’re feeling rebellious, match both together for a bold look! Pair a red velvet dress with suede emerald boots. A sequin dress in mermaid-themed colors of greens, cyans and black will put you in the spotlight for all the right attention as well. If bright colors are not your usual thing, go for a darker shade with maroons and teal.
Empower yourself with the fierce and chic ASOS Jumpsuit with Wide Leg and Self Belt. The daring cut and will make a statement at any kinds of parties, corporate or private.
Price: USD 75.80
4. Matching Metallics
Make a statement this festive season with some metallic embellishments! Full-on metallic can be too much to pull off, unless you are Lady Gaga at the 2011 Europe Music Awards. Instead, balance out your outfit with a striking metallic top and basic black bottoms. Another option would be to go for muted colors with metallic accessories, like a clutch bag. If you are new to experimenting in this style, opt for pieces with metallic studs that help to add a point to the overall outfit.
Price: RM 89 (U.P. RM 99)
5. Lace it up
Another standard style that is perfect for every season, laced outfits add a feminine touch to your party attire. From skirts to dresses and tops, you get to mix and match your outfit to fit your style.
The Miss Selfridge Cream Long Sleeve Lace Bardot Top can be matched with a velvet, wide-pants for a more formal look, or a simple pair of denim shorts for a casual beach party.
Price: RM 84.50
