It’s Christmas party season, the best time of year! And with Christmas parties cropping up left right and centre, I thought I would share a couple of my Christmas party outfit essentials to ensure that you feel as comfortable and glam as possible.
One of my biggest essentials is a good, sturdy, supportive bra. Everyone has been in the situation where you have an amazing dress with some sort of fancy straps, or a strapless cocktail dress; where you need the strapless bra of dreams to keep everything from sliding down South (Just me?). Wonderbra are THE brand for supportive bras and their Ultimate Strapless Lace Bra* in Black is my new fave. I love it SO much that i’ve even started wearing it when I don’t even need to wear a strapless bra, and thats when you know it’s a good one. I love the inbuilt hands that offer extra support and the anti slip band ensures amazing support and oomph. I’ve had strapless bras that just flatten boobs, but this bra adds lift and shape, amaazing.
My second essential is a good pair of sturdy heels, spotting a ‘supportive and sturdy’ theme here? You want to look as glam as poss at your Christmas party, but you also don’t want to be that girl that looks like bambi on ice whilst making her way to the bar, or clutching onto other people for support, so make sure to invest in a good pair, or if you’re not into heels wear flats, or better yet bring a small pair in your clutch for afters. I love Dorothy Perkins for shoes, especially heels and my favourite type of heel are of the ankle strap, peep toe, chunky block heel variety, and that is exactly what this Silver ‘Shade’ Platform pair are, with a bit of extra jazziness too. Did I mention the price of these, they were in the sale for an INSANE £15, throw in your student discount and these bad boys only set me back £13.50, mad. Crossing all my fingers, and toes that the plain black pair go on sale too..
What are your Christmas party essentials?
