Party Outfit Idea

Party Outfit Idea

With party season on the horizon (can you believe it is less than 10 weeks till Christmas scary!), it is a great time to start checking out what clothes you might like to add to your wardrobe for those night outs.

I have a love for rings and I decided to design this outfit around this gorgeous Links of London Cubist ring which I found over on House of Fraser while browsing their jewellery selection (which I have to say is amazing and the prices on some pieces just wow).

I have to admit the first time I looked at the ring I carried on scrolling past, however I had to go back for another look and the more I think about it and look at it, the more it grows on me, the design is so simple but it seems to just jump out more than a plain band would.

I don't really do heels as I just can't walk in them, but for an evening that wouldn't consist of too much standing (perhaps a sit down meal) I could perhaps get away with a pair of kitten heels and this pair from Dune just seem to fit the bill, of sparkly and party ready perfectly.

At the moment I am loving this trend of chiffon overlays on clothing and this dress for Evans just works that look wonderfully, plus it plays completely into the hands of love of black / darker coloured clothing, while not completely falling into the all black once again trap.

To finish the look off and keep all my bits and bobs safe while out, I thought this pretty Biba deco box clutch in silver (they also do a gold one) would help tie everything together well.

So that's my first idea on a party outfit for the upcoming season, have you been thinking about what you might dare to wear this year yet?

    I love the clutch! I love that kind of ‘cage’ look on bags 🙂 Hope you get to wear an outfit like this this xmas!

  2. Mykidsguide

    I love your picks. I can’t do heels, too. When I was still younger, yes, but now that I’m so used to wearing sneakers and flip flops, I don’t think I can wear heels again.

  3. Jen

    I adore the shoes, oh and that dress is pretty interesting too!

  4. Stella Kashmoney

    Stunning shoes. I can’t believe it is almost Christmas already.

  5. Robin Rue (@massholemommy)

    That is a fantastic party outfit. Those shoes are HAWT!

  6. Jess @ Catch A Single Thought

    The clutch bag is gorgeous, and I’m not really a bag person so for it to catch my attention says something! I think this would be a stunning outfit although I would like to pretend that it isn’t only 10 weeks until Christmas…please 😉

  7. Rachel

  11. Olivia Williams

    This is a lovely little outfit! 10 weeks oh my god! xx

  12. Amanda Ripsam

    I would replace the heels with flats the outfit looks very comfy and fun.

    That looks like a great outfit. I really like the ring and the clutch. I am not sure what I am going to wear.

  15. sabina sher

    I’m the same with heels! I have very bad knees so we just don’t go well together! I’m loving the bits you’ve picked though!

  16. Tori Gabriel

    I absolutely love glamming up for the Christmas season (10 weeks?! Seriously?!) I’m especially excited this year as my Mum has spent the last year working really hard going from a size 22 to a 10! She tried one of my dresses on the other day and she looked stunning in it. Unfortunately, I bought that dress 18 years ago but I’ve managed to find something really similar on Ebay. She’s going to be stoked!

  17. Claire

    You have a great eye for style, I love your choices 🙂

  18. sam fernley

    I absolutely love kitten heels but rarely find any so I am very tempted by those from Dune! I have one night out planned already so will have to start planning my outfit for that.

    What pretty things! I love the sparkly heels – they’re my kind of party shoes.

  58. Charly Dove

    What a fabulous outfit! I know what you mean with shoes, I used to be a heels person until POD came along! The ring is lovely, must have a nose in Links, there’s one in Guildford I think 🙂
