When we think of dressing for Christmas and New Year, the first thing which springs to mind is to wear glitter and sparkle. The shops are full of items of clothing that dazzle, you may even need a pair of sunglasses to dim the view. However, this type of fabric is not for everyone, so if this isn’t for you, I have sourced alternative Christmas and New Year outfits options for your festive celebrations. These are all different ideas from the high street and so easily to wear, for everyone.

Outfit 1: The Drinks Do

For those after work drinks or gathering with friends, choose longline pieces which are elegant and will keep you covered. Not only will they keep you warm, they will add mystery and intrigue. Dark florals and animal print are another attractive alternative to sparkles and sequins. When it comes to boots this season, think 80’s style. Slouchy with pointed toes and stiletto heels are bound to get you noticed and these black ones from Office are the perfect match for this glamorous animal print dress from Marks and Spencer. Better still, the boots will also work well with jeans and an oversized chunky knit for a more casual look.

Outfit 2: The Christmas or New Years Eve Party

When it comes to your Christmas or New Years eve party this year, I urge you to play with texture and try velvet. It oozes luxury and is a glamorous alternative to sparkles. A trouser suit is a worthwhile investment for autumn/winter too as they are so versatile, and you can wear both the jacket and trousers as separates. Try teaming the trousers with a roll neck jumper and the jacket with jeans to really maximise the price per wear. These blush pink shoes from Aldo are a perfect match.



Outfit 3:  A Night Out on the Town

There really is no going wrong with a classic pair of jeans and a statement top. This blush sequin top from Next is a real winner in my eyes and looks fabulous when teamed with jeans and a tailored blazer. This double-breasted, checked Warehouse piece will carry you through many seasons to come.
