Think stylish sparkles, glimmering glitter, and out there embellishment, party season is fast approaching and nearly upon us. The time of year when there is no such thing as too much, heels are at their highest and glamorous dressing becomes essential. The stakes are high and the pressure is on to find the perfect party outfit, from on-trend evening dresses to sartorial separates and covetable cocktail looks, Jules B is here to make sure you shine this Christmas. For after dark glamour, we reviewed our favourite celebrity looks of the year to draw some seriously stylish inspiration to inject into your Christmas party looks this season.
Make like Olivia Palermo and channel your inner Great Gatsby in this 1920’s look with a contemporary twist, separates. This skirt and top combo mixes luxe fringing with soft lacing and iridescent gold tones for a look that wouldn’t look out of place in Downton Abbey. Complete the look with a long line necklace and embellished clutch for the ultimate outfit finisher, and don’t forget – your favourite heels.
Take a traditional approach to evening dress like Evan Rachel Woods, the epitome of glamour in muted neutrals. Mixing simplistic details with a statement dress, adorned in applique petals and embellishment in a rich gold colourway, Woods exudes elegance in this Christmas party classic.
For something a bit different opt for a feminine tuxedo look, mixing tailored trousers with crisp white shirting for a contemporary edge. We love Emma Watson’s embellished off the shoulder mesh top stylishly teamed with a pointed court shoe for a powerful party look.
Follow Miranda Kerr and play with hemlines this season to add a contemporary edge to your party looks. This asymmetric wrap over design does all the talking, layered against cut out detailing the dress is simply accessorised with gold accents and a classic sandal shoe.
For a seasonal investment which can be worn throughout the year, opt for a graphic shift dress like Michelle Williams. Amp up the look with accessories, from chandelier style earrings to a statement clutch and stacked heels, or pair it down and keep it simple like Williams accessorising with a single sleek colour such as black.
