Your Christmas Party Wardrobe: Part Two

Sequin Dress, €25 and Glitter Heart Clutch, €8, Penney's

Contemporary cocktail wear reimagines the classics in surprise silhouettes and with unexpected detailing. Just add glitter – some things never go out of style!

SPORTS LUXE

Cut-outs, jersey fabrics and athletic stripes have been reimagined for the party girl. There is no shame in showing a little skin, so embrace sheer overlays and racer-back cuts. Layering also works well, but keep your shape well defined for an unapologetic look. Luxe detailing is the key to taking this look from desk to dinner.

THE SEXY ALL IN ONE

A jumpsuit is a game-changing, super-glamorous alternative to a classic evening dress. For a knockout silhouette, a deep neckline and flared leg work beautifully. To wholly embrace the Christmas spirit (and the original Studio 54 vibe), opt for glittering applique and metallic fabrics.
