Staff Picks: Holiday Party Dressing

26 NOV 2021

The end of the year is drawing closer and with the return to socializing with family and friends, many of us already have a full social calendar for the holiday season. Long overdue catch ups and special celebrations are a lot of fun but dressing for them can prove a little stressful.

With the Forever New end of year party coming up, we thought it was a great time to ask some of our talented team members about what they’ll be wearing this festive season and their favourite ways to style party looks.

 

 THE MINI DRESS

Bree Janes, Senior Textile Designer

"A halter neck dress with a floral print is perfect for end-of-year parties and Christmas events that are a bit more on the casual side. I love the earthy colours and hand drawn feel of this print, it really talks to the whole 70s throwback trend but in a modern way. And, the statement cut out back just gives it that something extra. I'd dress up the Shayla Mini Dress with wedges to give it a bit more of a polished, resort feel."

Jane Pridmore, Junior Buyer 

"I love anything pretty and girly so I always gravitate towards dresses when I'm getting dressed for an event. The Shiloh Bodycon Midi Dress is fantastic for more formal occasions where there is a cocktail dress code. I'd wear this with heels and some sparkly earrings."

Fredericka Cook, Email Coordinator

"You can't go wrong with a suit. This blazer and wide-leg pants combination definitely strikes a balance between dressed up and relaxed. Linen is perfect for summer too, it's so cool and comfortable. If you're looking for a statement outfit, this is it."

THE KNIT DRESS

Mia Siemonsma, Senior Buyer's Assitant 

"A stretchy knit dress is great for parties that start in the afternoon and go into the evening. If you're stuck for inspiration, our Noami Bardot Column Knit Dress is a great all-rounder. I would style it with some heels and a cute mini bag."
