Festive party dressing is all about individualism and thinking outside of the box, which is why we are looking at the Christmas party outfits of the world’s most stylish females for inspiration


This is a prime time to stand out.

The festive season means we are taking chances when it comes to our outfits. Sparkles become an everyday necessity and we want so much volume in our sleeves that if the wind changes we would be able to fly away.

Stylish women across the globe are putting their best foot forward and showcasing their sartorial prowess on Instagram for all of us to see. As Christmas parties and events continue to appear over the next few weeks, our feeds are filled with dynamite looks that not only make us drool but give us some stylish inspiration too.

These 10 women have gone above and beyond when it comes to their festive attire and we couldn’t love it more.

Diana Ross is one of the original divas and she has most certainly passed her penchant for glam to her daughter Tracee Ellis Ross. This full-length orange feather creation by Shrimps isn’t for the faint-hearted – we dare you to wear it to Coppers over the festive season.

Angela Scanlon

The model, designer and singer is known for her edgy looks and this number, complete with a sparkly gold blazer and green platform heels, is no different (and talk about an epic backdrop).

Always an individual, Emma Louise Connolly’s looks are outside the norm. This black short suit is very Saint Laurent and is a nice alternative to a traditional party look.

This outfit by Evangelie Smyrniotaki (aka Style Heroine) is the level of mysteriousness we want to look like during the rest of December.

British Vogue‘s Acting Social Media Editor shows us how to do party wear when you don’t have a grá for outfits that glitter and glow. A floral midi-dress can make just as much of an impact.

Tar Marz always offers up something refreshingly different and this vintage look from Etsy is wonderfully unique. Easy to wear but still glam, can we wear this every day?
