It's time for some festive party outfits!
I don't mean to scare you into starting your Christmas shopping, but it's only five and a half weeks until Santa Claus officially ahem 'comes to town'. You know what that means? One month until we get to pop open the champagne and embrace the takeover of the silly season parties!**Lets off metaphorical party poppers**
It's time to get your festive party outfits sorted and today I've teamed up with Valleygirl to bring you two lace festive party outfits that are perfect for all of your upcoming Christmas parties and New Years Celebrations!
Party Outfit One: Nudes & Pleats
Lace bodysuit: Valleygirl*
Skirt: Bardot (Similar)
Bag: Miss Selfridge
Bracelet: The Peach Box*
If you thought that festive party outfits meant looking like a ho ho ho, I'll stop you right there! Knee-length skirts are appropriate for work Christmas parties and this pleated number is a breath of fashionable air into a feminine classic.
If you're a bit shy of going for huge, theatrical pleats, micropleats are a great way to ease yourself into the trend. Plus: the teeny side slits in this number keep it more 'Santa baby' and less 'Mrs Claus.'
Festive party outfits are all about balancing your shapes to keep it looking classy and, as this skirt is quite loose, I opted for a super fitted lace bodysuit. Plunging necklines are literally made for lariat necklaces, so I new I had to add this dainty gold chain as soon as this bodysuit arrived on my doorstep!
Light blush and black is a timeless combination, so little crazy colourful old me actually kept it simple this time and opted for a completely blush and black festive party look. But if you thought I'd gone all out minimal, you just have to look at this crazy, Princess-y bag.
My favorite thing about this lace party look is that the pieces can easily be re-styled and worn again in a more casual way. How cute will this skirt look with a statement tee tucked into it?
Party Outfit Two: Lace Co-ords
Lace co-ords: Valleygirl*
Clutch: Tony Bianco
I remember a time when the phrase co-ord was literally enough to make me sing 'I'm every woman' in a fleeting pop of excitement. Then I sort of got over co-ords. That is, until now!
Festive party outfits can all look too same-y and there's nothing worse than rocking up at the annual work bash to find that Jen from accounting is wearing the exact same dress. These quirky co-ords will seldom appear in people's party wardrobes, making you that cool, quirky fashionista dancing away to the Cha Cha Slide (we can only hope!)
The lace on these co-ords may as well be mistletoe it's so darn festive! An array of glistening gold on-top of classic black makes it the perfect choice for Christmas and New Year celebrations alike.
