I thought I would share a 3 of my tips for surviving the Christmas Party Season, these have seen me through many an Office Party!
1. Wear What You’re Most Comfortable In
When it comes to the Christmas Party I’m someone who above all else wants to be comfortable, I don’t want to wear something that feels too fancy, glitzy or overly festive looking. I have a few parties to go to this year & they’re not all in the evening so I wanted an outfit that would be suitable for both day & night.
George for ASDA have an incredible selection of party wear this season & if you like more glamorous, low key or even full on festive sequin number there is an outfit for you!I knew I wanted to wear black its what I feel most comfortable in and to my surprise I was quite spoilt for choice but for me you can’t go wrong with a little Black Dress and you can easily add a touch of glitz with shoes, a bag or jewelry.
I picked this simple Fashion Box Embellished Neck Dress £16 which sits a little above my knee. The fabric is quite thick and is textured so it adds a subtle pattern to the dress. The fabric is soft and sits really nicely. Its quite a flattering cut and I like that the necklace it detachable so if you want to wear different jewlery you can just take it off. This is a style that is easy to wear and you can wear from day to night so was exactly what I was looking for and I even had to go down a size which is always a great feeling.
2. Footwear Can Make or Break Your Evening
I’m terrible at walking in heels, so there is no way I will miraculously be able to do it on my Christmas night out. I risk looking like an idiot & by the end of the night my feet will be so sore. I know most people love high shoes but I’m just not that girl, I love a flat shoe but If I must wear a heel I like to wear an ankle boot, they’re comfortable and most of the time they don’t wreck my feet. These Gold Panel Ankle Boots £20 have a nice manageable heel and I liked the gold detail on them too, its a nice subtle touch – I will look party ready but I’m also secretly pleased my feet will be toasty warm whilst queuing to get in the club or waiting for my taxi home (such a granny at heart).
3. Take a Small Handbag
You can’t go out without the essentials and If I use a clutch bag I end up leaving it somewhere like the back of a taxi, so I need a bag that I can wear. A small bag is all you need no one wants to take a massive handbag out with them so a cute bag is perfect. All I take is money, bankcard, phone & my lipstick, I try to take just the essentials! This Cross Body Glitter Box Bag is so pretty and adds sparkle to my outfit, I love the gold chain detail on the strap. It fits everything I need in & there is a little room for a few more makeup items if needs be. I think its the best bargain at only £10 its a Christmas Party must have!
So I will be dressing to impress but making sure I’m comfortable.
I hope you all have a great Christmas Party and remember to have a look on George for your outfit. Also let me know what kind of Christmas Party outfit you go for, are you all about the glamour or are you more like me & like to be more low key.
