What to wear to steal the show at the Christmas party

November 29, 2017

So you’ve decorated your home, hung up the stockings, and piled up on food and drinks for your Christmas party.

But what to wear? The hunt for the perfect party outfit can take up valuable time, which we all know we can’t waste during the holiday season.

So while you’re busy hunting for presents, and deciding on table décor, we’ll make your life a lot easier with our take on the best outfits to wear to steal the show at your Christmas party.

For the ladies…


What better way to stand out than in an embellished outfit? Sparkle from head to toe as you turn heads at every corner. Whether you wear a dress or skirt there is no doubt that you will be the star of the show.

Lady in red

Nothing says Christmas like the colour red. From jumpsuits, dresses, skirts, and gowns, a red ensemble is the ideal outfit to scream confidence and glam. Paired with black heels and a purse, stand out for all the right reasons at your Christmas party.

Velvet dreams

Soft, sexy, and opulent. A velvet outfit is a great idea for a chilly night. For a smart yet stylish look, go for an oversized velvet blazer with a large clutch to steal the spotlight. For a more traditional look, a midi-dress is the way to go. And remember, bright colours are always the answer.


For a party ready Christmas outfit, the shimmer of a metallic dress is the perfect way to go. Shine under the Christmas lights as you rock the night away with family and friends. To complete your look, add a pair of statement heels and a small bag.

For the Gents…

Party shirt

One way to stand out at a party is a shirt that no one will forget. A patterned or colourful shirt will let guests know that you’re here for a good time. Feeling brave? Why not opt for a leopard print shirt? Paired with a black blazer and jeans, you will look like a chilled out rock star- If that’s the look you’re going for…


When in doubt, always wear monochrome. This two-tone look is classic eveningwear for men. Modernise your look with a black overcoat and white shirt. Forget all the fussy extras and go for a crew-neck t-shirt or shirt, and simple black shoes. This versatile look will have you standing out with minimum fuss.

Turtle necks

For a suave look, a turtle neck is the way to go. Depending on the party, you can wear something sleek under a suit, or a chunkier turtle neck if you’re going to an outdoorsy do. When in doubt grey is always the colour to go for.

Christmas jumper

Nothing shows your love for the festive season than a wacky Christmas jumper. Bells, fairy lights, pom-poms, and cartoons, what better way to show your cheer? Christmas jumpers look great on both men and women and the wackier they are, the more likely you are to stand out!
