Party season is officially upon us; hurrah! There is nothing more fun than preparing for all of the parties, get togethers and celebrations that lie ahead. Part of the fun is also in deciding on your wardrobe, never mind catching up with your nearest and dearest. We love any excuse to dress up. To make your life easier, we’ve curated three of this season’s most covetable cocktail looks, all of which are available to shop at Dundrum Town Centre.
From a burst of seasonal colour to the return of gorgeous metallics, each outfit comes with a little beauty tip which will make your look go the extra mile to perfection.
1. Candy Crush
Contrary to the dark hues we normally see in winter, this season we’re embracing pink and orange to liven up our spirits. Whether you go monochrome or you marry these colours together, they’re a match made in heaven. For the ultimate perfectly finished look, Chanel re-imagined the classic flick in a bald matte shadow and balance with a softly stained lip.
Feather chain necklace, €37; orange top, €27; pink skirt, €40; all at River Island
2. Dark Romance
Long sheer dresses, lace details and dark colours make this Baroque-inspired look stand out. to complete this trend, take inspiration from the Dolce & Gabanna A/W catwalk beauty look and marry a flawless complexion with strong brows and a rich, dark lip.
Naomi Lee knit, €85; Emri maxi skirt; €225; both at Coast
3. Gilty Pleasure
The perfect and very sophisticated party look is the beautiful combination of silver and white. Glitter and shimmer call for Christmas and New Years celebrations. To finish your outfit, this subdued but very sophisticated evening look needs nothing more than a flawless foundation and naturally stained lips and cheeks, as seen on the Michael Kors runway.
White Floor-length dress, Mango, €99.99 at House of Fraser
