The best thing about this year is that party dressing is back big style!

From sequins, to fake fur, LBD’s and fringing it’s time to freshen up your party outfits with a bit of style and a whole lotta schizzle!

So if your December calendar is quickly filling up with Christmas parties, from cheesy office gatherings (the kind you’d rather skip!) to black-tie dinners and all-night New Year’s Eve parties. ’Tis the season for Christmas glitz, glamour, and three-dimensional sparkle, especially after a few years of “less is more” party dressing. If you need tips on how to dress for a party, then I would recommend you read Julien MacDonald’s article for elle.com where he breaks it down sequin by sequin - Julien MacDonald’s guide to glam dressing . But if you would rather add something new to your wardrobe that sparkles like a disco ball, then read my shopping choices of what you should be buying right now for the party season.

how to find your summer partywear outfit on the highstreet

IMG-1418.JPG

Wedding season, ball season, garden party season, any kind of party in the Summer requires a dress code that always has us questioning what to wear. I have alot of clients asking me to help them find outfits for those special occasions, whether it be a trip to Buckingham Palace, a guest at a wedding, a friend's big birthday bash or a day at the races, finding that special outfit can be tedious, frustrating and not at all fun. So I am going to provide you with some answers and give you some new inspiration and ideas on where to shop for your outfit.

Luckily, the high street is now a hotbed of excellent occasion options, whether you’re looking for a midi dress, trouser suit, jumpsuit or otherwise. Inexpensive enough to ensure you’re not the guest spending thousands, they’re also lovely enough to keep and wear again (and not just to more weddings, either). 


TRUTH & FABLE AT AMAZON

Think of shopping on Amazon and perhaps you think first of your monthly bookclub buys, some minor electronics, bulk toilet paper or Alexa. You probably don’t think of your entire summer wardrobe, including bridesmaids’ dresses, swimwear and the perfect bright jumpsuit. But that may be about to change. Over the past few years, the online department store has been making moves into the fashion world in a bid to challenge the traditional high street, as well as our dependence on other internet retailers such as ASOS. Having launched a new range of private brands, that challenge is suddenly looking like a strong one, so check out Truth & Fable before you buy your books.


VERY EXCLUSIVE

Very Exclusive is a mix of Net-a-Porter and the Outnet. It has a mix of designer pieces at lower prices, mid range high street brands such as Whistles with some great discounts and some exclusive designs from them that you wouldn't find anywhere else. If you are looking for that designer dress and don't want to pay designer prices then this is the website you should be looking at.


KITRI

More floaty garden party than smart ball dressing, Kitri offers something no other brand is doing right now, a fresh new way to look at feminine shapes. Their price points make them much more affordable for a daytime, or day to evening dress that you will no doubt wear again and again. I have mentioned them on the blog before, but they continue to bring out unique styles at great prices, this brand is going from strength to strength.


ASOS EDITION

I have swooned over these dresses a number of times this season already. This is ASOS's fight for a part of the higher end market, competing with brands such as Needle & Thread and For Love and Lemons which they already stock on their site. The dresses from ASOS Edition are very feminine, have so much detailing on them and you will have everyone asking where your dress is from!


REISS

There are on the highstreet some stores where you just know you will find a great outfit, a great cut and in a great fabric and Reiss never disappoints. But this season they have truly surpassed themselves and have by far the best options of dresses online and instore. I cannot fault their designs, they are really original and there are just too many to choose from to buy just one thing!

which party shoes suit your style?

Any excuse to buy a new pair of shoes right? And the party season is just that! This year the party shoes offering has gone over-the-top sparkly, furry and embellished that it seems the statement shoe is well and truly back in style!

Glam it up girl!

You will be loving all the glitz and sparkle on shoes so it's safe to say investing in a pair of glitter heel's will set your style to shine. Look for a pointy toe in a block heel for evening or a flat shoe for daytime.

Bling is not something that comes naturally to you, but that doesn't mean a little bit of shimmer can't be introduced to your party wardrobe. Velvet covered platforms for the evening or embroidered and brocade flats are good options for daytime.

Pointy flats with a sparkly touch or two could transform your office to evening looks in a quick step. Also look for leopard print, fur, satin or velvet fabrics this season. The shoes can make the statement so that the rest of your look can be pared back for maximum impact.
