Should you wear velvet this Christmas? The answer – yes! Velvet is the perfect festive choice for the season and right now it is bang on trend! This luxurious fabric not only looks great but feels so good!

It is quite obvious by now that velvet is one of the fabrics of the season. Yes, velvet generally gets a bit more of a look in around this time of year. But this year, more than ever, velvet has made a come back.

How To Dress For The Office Christmas Party

The question that crosses many of our minds around this time of year, how to dress for the Office Christmas Party? How should you dress for such an event? It happens every year, yes, but still each year around this time we flood into panic (some more than others!) and wonder what an earth we should wear!

It is worth considering what type of party your office party will in fact be. If your Christmas party is a simple office drinks after work, then perhaps your choice of outfit should differ than if it were a three course extravaganza with all the trimmings? 


In the event of a day-to-night emergency party outfit, opt for a classic style fit, such as the Pencil dress. The Pencil style is the perfect choice for the office. Why? The style is both chic and flattering and importantly, a good canvas to base your party outfit on.

The perfect style for the office party

French Connection Tania Tuck Bodycon Dress £ 75.00 (more dresses from French Connection) Ted Baker Dardee Embellished Midi Dress £ 179.00 (more from Ted Baker) Jaeger Lapel Dress £ 225.00 (more from Jaeger)

It may be an idea then to choose a colour that is more subtle (well, more subtle than say, fushia pink), so that you can transform your look into a party-worthy sensation! These three dresses (see above) are the perfect choice for this option, by being slightly more conservative in length, this makes them the perfect choice for during work hours.

TIP: By swapping your usual office heels or pumps for a pair of strappy sandals, you will immediately transform your look. Making your colleagues wonder where on earth that pair of pins came from!


What is it about Christmas time that makes us crave a bit of luxury? Well then, why not indulge a little. It’s the fine touches that make the dress and these three dresses from John Lewis are just what we were looking for!

Office Party dresses

Jaeger Lace Dress £ 150.00 Adrianna Papell Dress in Red £ 140.00 Adrianna Papell Dress in Black £ 140.00


The beautiful thing about these dresses, other than the classic and easy to wear style, is that because of the lace detail the accessories can get away with being more subtle. Which means these dresses can carry off simple understated heels with ease and you will still look chic, without having to crank up the glamour dial too much. Ideal. 


Bruce by Bruce Oldfield Velvet Pane £ 199.00 French Connection Cocktail dress £ 85.00 Karen Millen Gothic Long Sleeve Dress £ 235.00

These lovelies will be sure to turn heads, in the best possible way! How could you not be captivated by those yummy velvet panels and sheer delicate details.


Winter wonderland office party

Frock and Frill Occasion wear grey Now £ 148.00 NAF NAF FLAVIA Jersey dress Now £ 44.00 Laona Cocktail dress Now £ 96.00

During the winter months it can be easy just to stick with darker colours. If you feel like your stuck in a rut and fancy trying something new and fresh? Why not try a lighter colour. Dusky grey, cream or nude toned dress could be a great alternative for you.

The dresses we have chosen for you above are girly and cute but still appropriate for such an event as the office party. They are soft and delicate and the beautiful detail makes them that something special you could be looking for!

3 Ways To Wear The Cape Dress

This Autumn Winter the cape is making a come back. Capes, ponchos and yes even cape dresses. But this style isn’t only for the adventurous fashionistas out there! Nope, there is something for everyone!

Famous Faces Wearing Cape Dresses

We have seen the likes of J-Lo, Kim Kardashian and Cameron Diaz amongst many other famous faces sporting the cape dress. When done right it can be elegant, sophisticated and look darn right powerful. But we would like to stress…WHEN done right.

Ladies there are 3 ways to wear this style in…style.

Wear it: Long

Cameron Diaz does this look in an elegant floor-sweeping gown. This style of dress might well be the polar opposite of the LBD but still sexy.

The fitted silhouette is suggestive yet flattering to her curves and the stunning cobalt blue goes hand in hand with a women’s best accessory…her eyes!




Elise Ryan Maxi £ 68.00 Fame and Partners Cape Dress £ 160.00 Halloween Cape Dress from Plus brands at ASOS £ 49.99

Wear it: Mini

Keep it cute like Alexa in a mini dress, but this time with a twist. We think the cape style transforms the classic mini dress into something a little Alice and Wonderland. Making this dress a winner in our eyes.

Mini Cape Dresses

True Decadence Tall Embellished Neck Cape Dress £45.00 Warehouse Premium Embellished Cape Sleeve Dress £80.00 Missguided Plus Cape Dress £35.00


Wear it: Hollywood

Angelina Jolie does Hollywood glam like no other. This style resembles true Hollywood style from years gone by. The short cape is classic, classy and therefore timeless, so it’s the perfect choice for a “Black tie do” or the office Christmas party.



ASOS Extreme Cape Maxi Dress £50.00 Frock And Frill Allover Embellished Maxi Dress With Cape Detail £165.00 Coast Va Va Voom Dress With Pleated Cape £139.00
