Young Fashion

1. Playsuit, River Island, £18

Bright like Christmas tree lights, this playsuit is essential for any party. With shimmery silver enhancing a simple black piece, it’s certainly a festive fixture when paired with a thick pair of cable knit tights.

  1. Boots, Primark, £14

To add a rocker edge to your outfit, these boots from Primark are vital. The silver laces are the perfect accompaniment to the playsuit, and the pom-poms are a modest detail. Plus, at any party, comfort is key, and these boots will have you dancing well into the festive season.

3. Gilet, New Look, £19.99

What’s a party outfit with the addition of faux fur? This gilet will not only keep you warm when braving the colder evenings, but it’ll also add the wow factor when paired with the rest of the glitz!

4. Earrings, Accessorize, £4

These snowflake drop earrings will get everyone in the festive spirit and will finish off any party outfit nicely! Comfy and Christmassy – the perfect winter combo!

An eclectic mix of satin and velvet, this suit jacket is sure to keep all eyes on you. A bold choice that will keep you looking sharp without distracting from your dance moves!

2. Shirt, River Island, £35

Simple yet effective. This white shirt is a reliable addition to any outfit, with the quirky addition of gold detailing that will set you apart from the crowd.

3. Trousers, Next, £40

The perfect way to compliment the jacket is with these trousers. With a subtle hint of orange, the two go together like mistletoe and wine.

4. Boxers, Primark, £3.50

For a festive flair, we suggest these boxers to get you in the Christmas spirit. Plus, at £3.50 they’re a gift to your bank balance!

5. Shoes, River Island, £39.50

Light up the dancefloor with this glittery jumpsuit! With tieback detail and a flattering belt, this jumpsuit makes all the right moves to become a wardrobe staple this festive season.

2. Coat, River Island, £85
This coat is great for two things – looking good, and keeping you warm when heading both to and from the party. In fact, we’re not sure you’ll want to take it off…

3. Shoes, Marks & Spencer, £29.50
You don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style when your shoes have both. With enough of a heel to make an impact, whilst also keeping you comfortable well past midnight, these shoes are a party must-have.

4. Hair Clip, Accessorize, £15
Add glitz from head to toe with this hair clip, perfect for keeping your hair out of your way while you strut your stuff.

5. Bag, New Look, £17.99
Whether it’s your purse, lipstick, keys or phone, we all need a safe place for those little essentials during the party season. This bag is big enough to do just that – plus we all have that one friend who never brings their own bag!
