Hi Tien! I have a company wide Christmas party coming up and am looking for a fun informal party outfit that won’t break the bank. Do you have any ideas you could share?Thank you!

Hi Emma – Thanks for your question Your Christmas party sounds super fun! My workplace only has a self funded drinks and nibbles night at the local pub planned so not much to get excited about in the dressing up department.
Given the festive season I would suggest something fun with a bit of sparkle and colour whether it be a sequins jacket, a sparkly top, dress, skirt or even a pair of sparkly pumps. Try Asos.com and your city’s high brands as well as vintage stores for more affordable options.
Here’s a little story board I created to give you an idea of what could be fun for a Christmas party. All items are available from Topshop, Zara and French Connection which are all very reasonably priced stores.
I think everyone should own something sparkly in their wardrobe for party season. Sequins, when kept at a minimum can be timeless and they always come back in and out of fashion over time. I have a dress I got from French Connection this year which I wore to my birthday dinner in Melbourne during Winter. It’s a joy to wear but it can be a little heavy so if you’re not up for a dress you can always have fun with a skirt or top for that special night out.
