Twelve Days of Christmas Party Outfits | Day Two

For day two, I’m sharing the ultimate little black dress! You really cannot go wrong with a sophisticated, classic black dress for an evening event, and especially a Christmas party!

This particular dress would be absolutely perfect for your office do, as you can quickly change into it after work and head straight there. A simple little black dress doesn’t need much fuss, just pair with some heels and a big wool coat over the top and you’re good to go. No stress!

A little black dress like this would also be ideal for any black-tie event if long ball-gown type dresses aren’t really your thing. Throw on some glitzy jewellery and a clutch bag and you have a stylish, classy evening look.


The dress is a flattering, fitted wrap design with a high halter neck. It cuts just at the right length below the knee and isn’t revealing at the front, making it completely appropriate for a work event. I also made sure the split doesn’t reveal too much leg when you walk and can confirm it passed the test! Always remember to perform a few little tests when you’re trying on a dress because there is nothing worse than wearing something for the first time at an event and feeling uncomfortable. These include:

  • If it’s a wrap style dress, making sure it isn’t too revealing when you walk
  • The sitting down test!
  • General walking around, making sure you’re comfortable after a short period of time before committing to buying or taking off the tags!

The best thing about this dress is the fact it comes in 15 different colours so you’re spoilt for choice! I was tempted by the ruby colour as the shade is so festive! I’ve linked some of my favourite colour options below, as well as lots of similar styles too.
