The Christmas season brings around a sense of magic and wonder, which is very much reflected in our fashion choices when we put together outfits we wouldn’t wear any other time of year. While it may seem overwhelming at first, this is actually the best time to splurge on some new clothes as the fun and vibrant summer styles hit the stores. We’ve taken all the guesswork out of festive fashion shopping by narrowing down all the magical must-try pieces. If you’re ready to see out 2021 in style, check out our favourite styles with just a small scroll below!
The festive season brings around the best of the best when it comes to fashion. When the time to celebrate arrives, you’ll see a myriad of bold colours, playful designs and sparkly pieces hit the shelves.
What better time of the year to invest in a new dress… or two! Whether you’re into the floaty, femme styles or something more tailored and glamorous, there are various dresses out there, perfect for the festive season. Key silhouettes include the slinky slip dress – ideal for a glamourous night, as well as the oh-so-flattering tiered style that would be perfect for your more casual affairs. When it comes to specific design elements, keep an eye out for subtle cutout details, halter necklines, and bright prints!

When it comes to soirée season styling, accessories really do a lot of the work for you! A hint of shimmer and sparkle in your accessories can be just the thing to capture that special Christmas feel and add the final flourish to any outfit. Accessories are also a great way to reinvigorate an existing wardrobe staple and make it fresh for this year. The festive season means you can go a bit more ‘out there’ than you usually would, so why not don some multi-coloured gems, metallic handbags, or an encrusted headband?

We’ll be the first to admit that shoes are a bit of a weakness when the festive season rolls around. It’s not party season without some killer shoes, right! Similar to accessories, the right pair of shoes can really set off any outfit. When it comes to donning your footsies this festive season we’re loving the bold colours and designs that are soaring in popularity this year. If you’re not one for skyscrapers, have no fear as low-heeled mules are super trendy right now – not to mention super comfortable! We’re also loving the strappy styles that typify a party shoe. Glamourous and fun, they’ll make a statement with a glitzy dress or power suit.

Summer fashion sees the arrival of bright prints and bold colours – just the tonic we need after the neutral palette of winter. Festive events are the perfect time to go bold in a pop of colour – we’re celebrating after all! You can opt for a monochromatic look, wearing one shade head-to-toe which instantly looks chic and sophisticated. Or, if you’re feeling particularly playful, try mixing and matching different colours to create a super-celebratory ensemble. Don’t forget about the numerous amounts of fun prints out there too – they look amazing with brightly coloured shoes and accessories!
