What are you wearing for the festive party season?

Now it’s November, and we are guessing you are gearing up for the festive season.

Maybe you’re making a list of presents, thinking about the menu and considering how to make your home look fabulously festive. 

We’re gearing up for the festive season too and today, we’ve dipped into the John Lewis party wear edit which is overflowing with fabulous frocks and amazing accessories to ensure you out-dazzle the Christmas tree or the Chanukah lights when you head out for festive drinks or a black-tie do. Here are a few of the pieces we think are irresistible:


When you want to really be a head-turner, this strapless maxi dress (sorry, this long evening dress), in a gorgeous gunmetal metallic is the perfect frock to do it in. Style it simply, with just pumps or sandals and a clutch and let the dress do all the talking.

When you want high-voltage glamour in a ‘midi’-length dress, this elegant lace number is your go-to LBD. The round neckline, the hint of shimmer and that pretty flared sleeve, however, elevate this LBD into a VIBD (Very Important Black Dress). If your Christmas Party involves going outdoors, you can see that this dress works perfectly with knee-high boots to keep out the cold.

We don’t need to tell you that velvet is the season’s favourite fabric. We love how velvet has been crafted into this very elegant and flattering knot-front dress. Available in both Black and Wine, this dress provides a great backdrop for jewelled shoes and bags as well as for glittering jewels (real or faux).

If you’re not really a dress kind of girl, then perhaps a jumpsuit is the way to go this party season. We adore this elegantly simple black jumpsuit, with a contrasting velvet Bardot neckline. We would style with gorgeous shoes and bag in either gold or silver (depending on your colouring). Then just pop on a faux fur stole or jacket to really ooze glamour!

Yes, sorry, it’s another dress in black and gold! We simply adore this divine maxi with its metallic wrap over bodice and long sleeves. This is the dress to dance the night away feeling like a glamorous diva!

Petite ladies, this one’s for you! With its figure-flattering cut and lavish sequins, this glittering maxi ensures you’ll ooze old-style Hollywood glamour. Team with your favourite strappy sandals and a simple clutch!

Curvy girls, we haven’t forgotten you! Here is a truly stunning gown in the most flattering shade of deep sapphire… With on-trend, elbow-length sleeves and the scattering of beautifully placed sequins, this dress is a real show-stopper! We would style this dress with shoes and bag in dark navy suede or silver and minimal jewellery.
