‘Tis the season to party! With everything from the work Christmas party to NYE with your best gals, you’ve got a lot of party outfits to organise (and the perfect excuse for a little wardrobe update)!!

We’ve teamed up with HQ Hair so we can guide you through your potential party looks and how to get it perfect from head to toe.


We all know nothing says Christmas party like a little added glitter. This season is all about going hard or going home, so if you’re going to glitter, make sure it’s the hero piece in any outfit!

If you’re all about show stopping steeze, there’s nothing more attention grabbing than an all over sequin number. Be playful in a playsuit, add the drama in a sequin dress, whatever you choose, the more it glitters the better!

If you want your outfit to pack a little punch but not be all out sparkle, try some sequins on the top or the bottom of your outfit for a more subtle take!

With an outfit that sparkles this much, some attention to your hair must be paid. Make sure you’re coiffed to perfection! For a sleek look use those all important GHD’s to add some heat and work out all the kinks. The go to party look is always added curls, so use a GHD Classic Wave Wand and pump up the volume for a super glam look!

If all out glitter is a little full on for you, mix it up and add it to your look with your makeup or nails. Nothing says it better than a glitter manicure with Nails Inc. Add a glitter eyeshadow like Bourjois’ Smokey Stories Quad to brighten up a darker look. Or if you’re feeling daring, try out some glitter roots this party season!


Kill It like a Kardashian this festive season and go for a block colour. Whether it’s one show stopping dress or a layered up outfit, stick to one colour and block it out. Add the drama with a cut-out here, halter there, eyelet clasp or added embellishment to make it Christmas party worthy.

Keep the outfit simple, or go all out and over the top with lashings of accessories! Add a killer heel for added oomph and don’t forget that all important faux fur clutch.

If you’re going bold in a block, mix it up with your beauty regime. Stick to the rules of a Kardashian and use Redken’s Velvet Gelatine for a slicked back pony and go bold with a dark lip like Rimmel’s The Only One Lipstick in ‘Under My Spell’ for added drama!


Whether it’s lace detailing or a lace up, embrace it this party season!

If you’re going all out lace, keep the outfit on point with some killer curls using your MoroccanOil Curl Defining Cream, but if lace up is the look you’re digging, make it extra dramatic and use a HD Brows Eyeshadow Palette in Vamp to get that killer smoky eye ‘cause your steeze is smokin’ hot.
