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!
