Now that Christmas is just around the corner, it’s finally time to leave the everyday behind and slip into something more festive for those glittering soirées on your social calendar. Granted, it’s not easy to find a dress that hits the sweet spot between soignée sophistication and downright ho-ho-ho, so we’re here to help you navigate this party season in the most fuss-free way possible.
For a start, it’s time to pack those frumpy Christmas sweaters away (remember when they were a thing? Well, not anymore), and leave those reindeer antler headbands at the door—the new silhouette for the holidays is sleek and simple, yet rich with detail. A classic Little Black Dress is an obvious go-to for any occasion, but display a dash of daring and give it an upgrade with intricately embroidered sequins that are sure to make you dazzle. Pair it with a bold silver clutch, graceful drop earrings and, for a flash in your step, a pair of beautifully sequinned shoes that will make you the talk of the town. Oh, and don’t forget that spritz of perfume to beguile your partner.
Last but not the least, every girl needs a suave and debonair date by her side for a night out on the town—dress up your beau in a smart navy shirt with a subtle pattern that nicely complements your own outfit, and remember: Forego the staid neck-tie options (he’ll probably have had enough of those in the corporate world, anyway) for a statement-making checked scarf. And for the finishing flourishes, a little glint of gold cufflinks at the wrist and a scent that will make him that much more irresistible.
