The Shiny Pencil Skirt
I think a bit of a statement skirt can be a great option and mixing up prints and patterns can be a fun way to add a bit of quirkiness to an outfit.
|I’ve actually worn this outfit on New Year’s Eve before (you can see it on my lookbook here)|
The Maxi Dress
As someone that is on the shorter side, it can be hard to find maxi dresses that don’t somehow make me look even smaller but I think it’s about the proportions of it, so I tend to go for a shorter top half and longer skirt to make my legs look longer. (And a handy tip for anyone else that is a bit vertically challenged, buying from Asian websites often makes things the right length – FYI I’m average height in Japan)
You may have notice I’m rather fond of this dress, I just think it can be worn in loads of ways and dressed up or down. I’ve always been a bit of a fan of pairing girly dresses with Dr Martens boots as I love the contrast of the pieces.
The Velvet Dress
Velvet is such a Winter staple and in this festive burgundy red I don’t think you can go wrong, this dress is from American Apparel but you could find a whole range of velvet dresses in different styles from other stores as well.
It’s that time of year when party outfits seem to be needed more than ever. Whether it’s a work Christmas party, a family get together for the holidays or NYE celebrations, an outfit will be needed. So I’ve put together a little lookbook of outfits that I think would be great for the holiday season. Do you have any party outfits planned? Share them below!
