I’m Ellie and I write a beauty, fashion and lifestyle blog called Ellie’s Ramblings. Today I’m getting in the festive spirit and talking party dresses for Christmas and New Year. Very have launched #PartyInStyle, an online ‘style destination’ to get us all prepped for the party season. If you need inspiration on what to wear this Christmas then it’s definitely worth having a look at #PartyInStyle. To me finding the perfect party dress is one of the best parts of the festive season, but with so many trends to choose from I can easily get overwhelmed by what style to go for.
I’ve picked three festive trends and dresses from Very to go with them. Hopefully you might find your party dress from my picks!
First up, sequins! Christmas is the only time of year when too much sparkle is never enough. Normally I wouldn’t be brave enough to wear a full on sequin dress but as soon as I get in the spirit I feel ready to roll myself in glitter. My favourite of the three is definitely the gold and black dress, I think it’s a perfect colour for a Christmas party and would suit all figures, the high neck keep keeps in classy too!
Lace is another perfect Christmas trend that always looks fashionable. It’s a trend that suits everyone as there is a dress for every style and taste. If you don’t fancy full on lace there are lots of gorgeous dresses with lace trims or features. It’s a great party style for the festive time and all year round too. I love all three of these dresses but think the green Holly Willoughby design is my favourite. It’s elegant and a classic figure hugging style, I love the colour and think the subtle lace detail round the necklace is really pretty.
If you prefer to keep the sparkle more simple then an embellished dress could be perfect. You can find pretty much any style or colour with embellishments on so I’ve picked three different colours and styles to show the variety. Black is the most popular colour for party dresses thanks to the infamous LBD, but to be a bit different I’ve picked deep jewel colours that never look better than they do at Christmas. I love the idea of mixing studs with feminine pieces, so the dress by Fearne Cotton is right up my street. It’s a flattering fit that highlights the waist and the colour is beautiful. I really like the mix materials and studded detailing. It’s definitely on my wishlist!
I hope you’re feeling a bit more Christmassy and ready to #PartyInStyle this festive season. I’d love to know what you think of my picks from Very and it would be fab if you had a look at my blog www.elliesramblings.com . I’m getting even more festive over there talking gifts, beauty reviews and more!
Thank you Very for having me as a guest poster.
