As we enter November, one thing is at the forefront of our minds—party season. Maybe your festive plans have already begun, or perhaps you’ve got a few weeks to fully prepare for the storm of dinners, parties and cocktail events that will round off 2023. To ease you into a busy calendar and avoid that night-before panic of pulling a party look together, I’ve been on a hunt to find the best celebratory styles to suit all your upcoming events. And NET-A-PORTER’s festive collection ticks all the boxes.
We regularly find ourselves turning to NET-A-PORTER throughout the year, because the luxury fashion retailer always rises to the fashion challenges life throws at us. The ultimate vacation capsule? Tick. Timeless workwear essentials? Of course. A standout party selection for the festivities? Naturally. Wherever your plans take you, NET-A-PORTER’s sleek edits ensure you’ll always have something chic to wear. And with a mix of beloved names and up-and-coming designers, the breadth of pieces on offer assures there’s a style to suit all aesthetics, and all in one place.
For winter 2023, there’s a definite feeling of more is more, with sparkling sequins and a mix of embellished styles for those looking to make an entrance. Cutouts are back on the agenda, as well as sheer fabrics that allow for a peek of skin this festive season. Bows remain the motif of the moment, adorning both partywear and everyday styles—the only difference is that when celebrating, they’re oversized or diamanté emblazoned, on pieces from clothing to accessories. Meanwhile, the season’s favourite colour—red—continues to reign supreme, alongside classic black dresses and suit options for those looking for a more minimal take on occasionwear. Finally, accessories offer the opportunity to up the ante even further, allowing a party look to really come full circle.
