As December rolls around, so too do the crazy amount of formal dress-codes and also the need to get our hands on anything sparkly. From nail polish, phone cases, wrapping paper or earrings, we're magpie-ing ourselves and wanting to own anything with shimmer. This is, of course, translating into our festive looks, as we plan the perfect outfit, whether for a year-end function, Christmas with the family or friends' December bash. We have six incredible outfit ideas for you, no matter what the event is.
P.S. for those who somehow manage to escape the glitter frenzy, we've got you covered too!
The Disco Dancer
You're planning on dancing (a lot) and also having one or two glasses of bubbly (or, a lot) and so this multi-tiered gold dress is your ultimate party companion.

Red-y To Razzle
An on-trend tropical print skirt and gorgeous red silk shirt are a great base for a festive look perfect for a day or night-time event. The addition of a strappy heel is ideal for nighttime cocktail event, and for day time try a platform sandal or sneaker.
The devil is in the details, especially when it comes to dressing in a minimal way. Because not everything has to be fully glam, this is a look which focuses on greta basics with a bit if an edge. A beaded cami and silk trousers are complimented with starry earrings and a rainbow kitten heel, if you dare...
The LBD will always be a classic, all year round and for absolutely anything. take it up a notch for the festive season with bangles, a (very cute) vinyl cross-body bag and shoes which you'll definitely want to wear again. You're the sensible kind of party-animal, so don't bother jumping onto the sparkly-trend pieces you'll probably never wear again...
This time of year is your time to shine! What better way to do so than in a rainbow sequin dress, embellished hair clips (the more the merrier of course) and bright accessories. The maximalism of December speaks to your heart, so embrace all things OTT and get to that party.
