Festive, fashionable women blow glitter at camera

Party here, party there, everywhere. From Chanukah to the traditional festive bash, it’s all about braving the winter cold (and the buffet) in December. Here are JLife’s festive fashion picks for the season.

Model shows off festive dress from Wallis

Dress – £40, Wallis

Let It Shine

This festive, fashionable chic swing dress from high street staple Wallis is one of the most elegant ways to wear sparkles this party season.

Its floaty fit, statement sleeves and flattering keyhole neckline will have you looking and feeling great at any events in your diary this winter.

Simply add black strappy heels, and complete the look by layering over a faux fur coat when the weather cools.


Model wear festive, fashionable Monsoon dress

Dress – £110, Monsoon

Show Some Flare

Fit and flare is the style of this dress from Monsoon, a sophisticated choice for that end of year dinner with colleagues or a swanky New Year’s Eve party in town.

All wrapped up with a statement bow bodice, the ‘Alexa’ dress plays to a traditional ultra-feminine aesthetic.

Perfect for upcoming weddings or parties, this flattering shape kicks out at the waist thanks to precise pleats and useful pockets!


Animal-print shoes from Shoezone

Shoes – £64.99, Shoezone

On the Spot

These on-trend leopard printed boots from Clarks will make the perfect statement piece for your autumn/ winter wardrobe.

Ankle height with a pointed toe, they have a medium sized heel perfect for adding some height and a zip on the side for quickly slipping them off at the end of the night.


Festive party bag from Dorothy Perkins

Bag – £16, Dorothy Perkins

You Are Gold

This golden ring detail clutch with detachable chain strap inside from Dorothy Perkins’ new AW19 collection is bound to make a statement on the dancefloor.

Pair it with a matching metallic snake print belt and even a pointed heel to complete the festive fashion look.


NYX liquid highlighter

Highlighter – £15, NYX Cosmetics

Glow Up

NYX’s Away We Glow liquid highlighter is the finishing touch to a party makeup regime.

NYX is reputably the professional makeup choice for makeup artists, with products that work to enhance your natural features.

The light-reflecting formula in the liquid highlighter comes in nine shades for irresistible illumination plus a shimmery finish. Just dab and blend to add luminosity to any look.
