One of my favourite things about Christmas is that its that one time of year we can really go all out with our party outfits and get totally glammed up! To be honest, I usually get glammed up for a night out anyway but at this time of year, pretty much anything goes. Sequins, metallics and glitter are just a few things we see all over the high street and I for one love it! December is usually full of festive get togethers so what better excuse to wear a dress that will make you feel a million dollars. Today I want to share two gorgeous maxi dresses that I personally think would make the perfect Christmas party outfit, especially if you're going somewhere a bit fancy!! I used to think maxi dresses could only be worn in Summer but they're actually really perfect for a special event as it's something a bit different that I probably wouldn't wear for a standard night out.
First up is this gorgeous black maxi dress from Pretty Little Thing. This one is actually from the gorgeous Lucy Mecklenburgh's collection and we all know how glam she is! It's a fairly simple dress but the high neck and backless style give it that wow factor. The fabric feels really high quality too and it hugs you in all the right places so if you're someone who is a bit conscious of your hip / thigh area, this dress is perfect for you as it hides it all and emphasises the waist. I think this would be perfect for a Christmas dinner party or something similar as it's really classy and one you really can't go wrong with. With it being quite plain, you can also get away with wearing a bold lipstick and glitzy accessories. I wore mine with a slick of my favourite MAC Lady Danger lipstick and a Missguided rose gold clutch to add a bit of extra glamour!! You can get the dress here for £25.00 in their sale.
Next up is this stunning red maxi dress from Miss Pap. This is more of a risky number and not something I'd typically wear but as soon as I put it on, I fell in love. Even though there's a lot of leg on show, I feel it still looks super classy because of the maxi style and long sleeves. It's also red which is I colour I always have to wear at this time of year - it's so festive! I have to say this probably isn't a dress you'd wear to a family occasion or posh dinner but for a Christmas night out or partying with friends, it's perfect! I also think this would look amazing on holiday so if you're jetting off somewhere sunnier over the festive season, something like this would make a great addition to your suitcase!! You can get it here for £30.00 and if red isn't your thing, it's also available in Black.
Will you be getting glammed up this Christmas? Do you like these dresses?
