How to: Dress For A Christmas Party

Author Editor - 2 minute read
There’s only 9 more Mondays until the big day itself, (we know!), which means Christmas party season is now upon us. If your calendar is filling up with plans, each one requiring a different festive dress code, then you’ve come to the right place as we’ve got the best Christmas party outfit ideas for every invite.

Whether you’re switching out secret Santa for a soiree this year with the girls, or wondering what to wear to your work’s Christmas party, we’ve got the lowdown of going-out outfits that have made it onto the nice list this year.



Ready to make the whole place shimmer when you make your entrance? A sequin dress is a showstopping Christmas dress, catching light and attracting compliments. Dance the night away in a ladies’ party dress that rivals the disco ball, from must-have metallic shades to elevated embellishment, this Christmas party outfit will leave a lasting impression.



Will we ever write a women’s party outfit blog without giving the LBD a shout-out? It’s looking unlikely, as it’s a classic for good reason. Statement details stand our little black dresses apart, from bold bows for old-school Hollywood glamour to shimmering patterns to capture a contemporary flair. You can always count on a black mini dress for party season, but don’t forget to pair with glitz jewellery and accessories.



Pops of purples and beautiful blue hues are having their time to shine this season. Rich bejewelled tones co-ordinate with your favourite seasonal sweet wrappers, making them ideal Christmas outfit colours. Soft lilac to deep navy, this dream worthy palette breathes festive life to every silhouette from a classic slip dress, playful mini dress, vibrant tailoring and beyond.


If you’re looking for a women’s party outfit you’ll wear again and again, then you’ve met your match with our collection of women’s co-ords. Worn together or styled apart, a matching set has endless potential for day to night dressing, making it the most versatile partywear outfit choice. Turn up to the work Christmas party in girl-boss bold suiting, or sparkle onto the dancefloor with your sisters in a sequin set, all we know is that good things come in pairs, and a co-ord works perfectly as a Christmas party outfit.


No party outfit is complete without accessories, so we’re asking Santa for our diamante bags, statement earrings and silver heels to be delivered early this year. We can even point him in the right direction - they’re all available at French Connection in our women’s partywear collection
