Now that December is in full swing, I’ve suddenly realised that when it comes to party season wear my wardrobe is pretty bare. I don’t tend to spend on more dressy pieces, because they get so little wear, but this year I’ve been determined to make a bit more effort with my wardrobe.
The key to dressing for the party season (for me) is versatility. I like having items in my wardrobe that look just as good with a jumper thrown over them as they do on their own. Luckily, I think I’ve found the perfect dress for this! It’s a skater dress, with a low v neck, which means it’s not only great for dressing down with tights and a cropped jumper, but I can also wear it to the festive parties I have been invited to!
This particular dress is Boohoo’s dress of the month, and it’s a cute striped silver and black number. I wouldn’t normally go for this style of dress, but once I had tried it on I fell in love with the way it highlighted my curves. It’s definitely a statement dress, and as it includes hints of silver, I decided not to wear jewellery (I felt like it would be a bit too overboard with the metallics otherwise!). I went for an equally statement pair of boots – my blue ankle boots from Kurt Geiger. Together, I think this dress and boots combo is the dream pairing and they work really well with each other.
In terms of bag, I would go for something mini and black. In fact, I have the perfect studded black micro bag that would look perfect with this outfit!
When it comes to party dressing, I definitely think less is more. Keeping the styling minimal means you don’t look like you’ve tried too hard and if you can get yourself a dress that looks perfect on its own, it makes getting ready for a night out far easier.
