‘Tis the season to sparkle. From work events to VIP invites, now is the perfect time to update our wardrobes with Christmas party dresses that set the tone for those glittering nights ahead. To inspire your style, we’ve asked Monsoon to create an exclusive party season edit for upcoming festivities, featuring hero pieces that have been hand-picked by their fashion editors.
Sequin dresses are a festive season favourite, and there are plenty of options to suit a whole host of office parties. For the fashion brave, colour-block sequin panels make the strongest statement, while midnight black, cool-toned blues and vintage golds create a more timeless look. In any case, the one rule for sequin dresses is to keep accessories to a minimum; a classic pair of heels and a simple clutch bag are all that’s needed to keep embellishments in full focus.
Christmas offers the perfect opportunity to embrace AW16’s trends and create a bold look that takes centre stage. Shimmering pleats, plush velvets and structured lace continue to make their mark as the key fabrics of the moment, while figure-skimming silhouettes and midi lengths keep them in line with cocktail party style. Metallic accessories are an ideal way to add sparkle to these pieces, from statement earrings to high-shine clutch bags.
This season, jumpsuits are pushing the boundaries of the black-tie dress code. A chic alternative to floor-length gowns, these structured styles bring a new twist to formal events, capturing modern glamour at its very best. From vintage lace and shimmering beads to tuxedo-inspired designs, evening jumpsuits require little more than a smoky eye and embellished heels to make a lasting impression.
