As a self-confessed appreciator of the luxury offerings in this life, it brings me great joy to create the ‘Luxe’ curation of outfits in these types of content. For me, it’s like being able to spend as much pretend money as you want, creating the most beautiful outfit your monopoly money can buy. Sign. Me. Up.
If you too are a lover of the finer things and are gearing up for a diamonté studded party season, let me direct you to some retailers who will support your endeavours. When shopping luxury, investment pieces, it’s always a great idea to check out the great British giants NET-A-PORTER and Matches Fashion.
With a beyond generous offering of sparkly, drool-worthy and covetable brands and pieces, both of these shopping havens are the perfect place to shop party wear this season.
Starting at the feet, Loewe have created chrome gold with these architecturally reminiscent heels that come to us as wearable sculpture.
Secondly, this STAUD exaggerated bow number is the perfect way to wrap up the end of 2022, and would be great for a hens, bridal or maternity moment if I can quickly add, too.
It’s probably a little more responsible of us to instead look at the mid-market offering for occasional wear, right?
Well, if you’re sensible, and are prioritising other important holiday expenses over one single outfit, then these options below are a fabulous place to start.
The mid-market offering of brands is usually where contemporary fashion comes into play, and that typically means lots of fun. Brands like STAUD, Norma Kamali and Sol Sana are all fantastic and affordable, and of the quality which means you’ll be able to wear these pieces for seasons and seasons to come.
This look is constructed entirely of pieces that not only work together for a fire cool-toned frosty Christmas look, but are individual pieces that could be worn to work or casually when paired with others that already exist in your wardrobe.
For example, this Frankie Shop blazer is the perfect autumnal layering piece for work, while the Ollie Leather Shoulder Bag by STAUD could join your collection as the perfect weekend bag or to house your essentials on a night out.
Oh, and these dainty little Annika Inez heart shaped huggy earrings could adorn your ears every day of the year! Perfect.
Feeling the end of year pinch? We got you! Party season doesn’t have to cost you an exorbitant amount to look chic and festive.
Kicking off this look with a number that tows the line between business sexy and cuff madness, This Jaded Rose shirt dress epitomises end of year work break-up.
The pop of magenta faux fur brings the dress into the party realm and makes pairing accessories easy. Borrow the hot pink and bring it to the floor with these feminine, fun and flirty pumps by our favourites over at The Iconic, DAZIE.
Speaking of accessories, jewellery and your handbag is the perfect playground to inject some iridescent fun into your party season wardrobe. Forever New have a plethora of fun mini bags to house your phone and wallet on your night out, with each being realised in a timeless shape that will grow with you, year after year. The perfect injection of sparkle to make the night one to shine in your memory for eternity!
So, who’s ready to party?
