What To Wear To A Christmas Party

The Christmas season is right around the corner with family functions and work celebrations quickly filling up our calendar so it’s time to get stylishly prepared!

With anything from an outdoor family BBQ, work function at a restaurant or cocktail party, there are so many events coming up over the party season, that we’ve decided to give you some top tips and tricks on what to wear to any Christmas party function!

Dinner party:

If you’re heading to a work or family dinner party, the tip is to stay classic yet have a little fun with accessories or heels. The good news for all you shoe lovers out there is that a dinner party is a great time to wear your highest heels as you know you’ll be sitting down for the large part of the night. Just make sure you check the dress code of the venue before arriving, it may mean you need to ensure higher necklines or lower hems if it’s a super classy place.

Cocktail function:

A cocktail function is a great choice for a Christmas party as it lets you show off a little leg in style. We love flirty pastels, bold reds and oranges or gorgeous floral prints. Play with straps and off-the-shoulder necklines or try an asymmetrical hemline for a modern touch. Ensure you wear heels that you can walk or stand in comfortably, or pack a pair of flats for the post party walk home.

Family BBQ:

There’s nothing quite like getting out in the sun with the family on a gorgeous summer’s day! Family BBQ’s are a really great way to celebrate Christmas. We love channeling a little boho vibe in our BBQ style, like a white lace women’s dress, printed women’s maxi or printed pants. Add chiffon, lace, crochet and stacks of statement jewels. For shoes, wedges are key as are sandals with a thick heel. These styles let you run comfortably after the kids, while helping out in the kitchen and having a glass of champagne all at the same time! What’s not to love about that right ladies?


Great for catch up with the girls before the holiday madness begins, a Christmas luncheon is all about fresh, flirty and feminine outfits. Think easy-to-wear shift dresses, off-the-shoulder tops, or striped pants. Rock your outfit with strappy heeled sandals or wedges for a comfortable and chic style.
