Silky satins, sparkling sequins and sheer delights—party dressing is my favourite type of dressing. It’s a chance to depart from our everyday uniforms and dip our toes into bolder styles and embellishments for the festive season. Unfortunately though, it comes at the busiest time of year. Our to-do lists are lengthening with tasks like digging out Christmas decorations and picking (and wrapping) gifts, alongside our regular routines. But party dressing shouldn’t feel like another chore. After all, it’s all about fun. So, to take one thing off your plate, I’ve pulled together a chic edit of party pieces courtesy of Free People. Better still, the site is running a 24-hour sale from midnight tonight (Friday, 10 November), so you can snap up your celebratory looks for less right now. Ready to find out more? Keep scrolling.
