This Christmas we’re all about the classic LBD. Irish women get a lot of slack for favouring widows weeds – blame the weather and our literary tradition.
However, black isn’t just a universally flattering shade, it’s hella versatile and its inky warmth is perfect for winter. Dimmed bar lighting and beauty looks that rely on a strong lip as opposed to a contouring kit? Bring on the black. It also lends itself very well to opaque tights and showcasing jewellery. Diamonds, real or high street fake, need a simple backdrop. Minimalist chains drip elegantly. Costume jewellery will thank its lucky and loud stars.

From lace to velvet to satin, there is a multitide of options. Browse through our gallery to find your Christmas party season outfit and don’t forget to go full-screen to get all the shopping details.
