Dressed up Fridays: How to wow at your Christmas party

For those of you who are already planning for your very own Christmas party this year, you might just forget to plan your head-turning outfit for this one night, especially after sorting out the food, drinks, music, guest list and etc. Be the belle of your own ball in an immaculately dressed getup, and remember to give your brightest smile in every #wefie (and in real life too of course).

Turn heads in an off-shoulder dress from Ellery—a brilliant red frock that isn’t too simple or complicating, thanks to its flattering satin-faced crepe material which allows it to fall loosely over the body. We love the deconstructed ruffles at the bell sleeves that cascade ever so slightly.

Sling this Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ clutch so that you don’t have to hold your phone awkwardly as you make your rounds greeting your guests. Made of transparent antique-rose acrylic inlaid with hundreds of glittering paillettes, it comes with a pale-gold chain strap to go hands-free.

Clear crystal drop earrings are all you need to accessorise, as your bright dress is guaranteed to get all the attention. This asymmetrical pair from Maison Margiela is a modern touch you need for your getup.

Get your mani-pedi done with this shade of rose-gold from NARS to go along with the festive-coloured theme in your look. The metallic, foil-like finish complements your clutch perfectly as well.

A bright red lippie is always welcomed for dinner parties, and what better way to make a statement than with Dior’s Rouge Dior in 999—the quintessential classic red in a creamy and moisturising formula.

Lastly, put your best foot forward in a pair of Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals in platinum leather. As a clunkier shoe (like a wedge or pump) might weigh down your look, ensure that your footwear doesn’t compete with your dress for attention.
