Twelve Days of Christmas Party Outfits | Day One

Welcome to 12 Days of Christmas Party Outfits! I decided to start this mini-series on my blog and Instagram as we’re approaching Christmas Party season and I know the struggle when it comes to finding an outfit.

In the majority of cases, it’s hard to know exactly what the dress code is going to be, which leaves you worrying what on earth to wear. I’ve put together 12 looks that each suit a variety of different events you may have coming up in your diaries. From a more formal work party to a black-tie event to a glitzy evening out with the girls. I’m hoping they will give you a bit of inspiration when shopping and give you one less thing to worry about during this busy month!


Day 1 kicks off with this gorgeous metallic velvet animal print mini dress. This would be perfect for your girls Christmas do or a festive dinner you may have in the diary. I actually wore this last Friday evening to my friend’s 30th birthday meal and drinks, and received so many compliments!

I’ve styled it with my favourite 15 denier tights and heeled ankle boots to dress down the sparkle slightly, but you could definitely also wear it without tights and pair with a pair of heeled pumps if you wanted a dressier look.

The top of the dress wraps over at the chest which I always find really flattering, and it’s not too revealing which would also make it ideal for a work Christmas party too, worn with tights.
