Fashion Friday | Partywear With Monsoon & Accessorize

Christmas - yes the much dreaded word - is quickly creeping upon us, Christmas is a time of giving, spending time with your family and eating lots of delicious food but it's also so much more especially when it comes to fashion. Some hop for a cheesy Christmas jumpers, others want to get their favourite pair of heels on and go all out with lots of glitz and glam and most importantly sparkle. This season Monsoon and Accessorize have put together a collection of beautiful party wear pieces that will have you shining at them important Christmas events, maybe it's a Christmas work do or a Christmas Party, it's time to ditch the normal clothes and get your glam rags on with Monsoon and Accessorize.

Monsoon helping you get ready to sparkle just in time for Christmas.
Below are my picks, helping you on the hunt for the perfect party wear for all events over the festive period.

  •  I love this Romy Bandage Dress for a Christmas work do. It's simple yet stylish, oozes sophistication, whilst being classy and will have you looking a million dollars. I teamed it with chunky statement jewellery (the Gema necklace is full of fun and colour), a pair of very glamorous heels (a beautiful satin finish with a diamante bow finish) and a simple, yet equally stunning matching clutch.

Party wear - I know for a fact majority of you will be getting your party dresses/shoes on and hitting the town over Christmas. New year - yes I thought so. Parties - most likely. I've chose my favourite party picks from the Monsoon party wear range along with some Accessorize accessories. 
  • Up first is this gorgeous floaty chiffon dress in grey. On the collar is beautiful detail of crystal, pearls and sequins which really adds to the vintage glamour of the dress. I styled it with these navy Eva shoes (with a trendy black diamante toe cap, they give a real edge to the outfit), and matching Eva clutch (with gorgeous detailing, matching black diamante this clutch really completes the look). I've added these simple, yet stunning silver studs.
  • Next, this gorgeous Esme prom style dress with removable satin sash. It's got gorgeous detailing and a beautiful ribbon bow - I just love this shade of dress for Christmas and the gold detailing is just stunning. Along with the dress I've added this gorgeous Samir glitter box clutch (glitter and sparkles is very Christmas) and these gorgeous shoes, that come with gorgeous crystal bow detailing that will compliment any shoes and jewellery you want to add. I personally feel a lot goes on with this dress and feel the dress should really do all the talking.
  • This is the most gorgeous teal dress, the added detailing of embroidery and iridescent beading really gives it that special touch. I teamed this with beautiful yet simple glitter envelope clutch, gorgeous shoes (beautiful bow and open toed) and trendy statement jewellery, this beaded necklace (trendy tribal with a pop of colour) and this gorgeous statement ring - I LOVE this ring.

Is it just me who likes to get dressed up when it's Christmas? whether I'm staying in or going out. I've picked two more casual dresses to choose from. Of course we find ourselves going to families houses on the big day, but Christmas is always my excuse to dress up. 
  • You can never go wrong with a LBD and this Suri heat seal dress is gorgeous for Christmas with added crystal shimmer to the neck line it adds that lovely touch of sparkle. I love this statement clutch, featuring a floral digital print with opulent, glittering beads. Elina simple court shoes and a pair of gorgeous Chandelier earrings. 
  • I am really loving this Even embellished dress with a spot weave shimmering detail on the pleated neckline. The sophia sequin jacket is the perfect cover up with its lovely sparkle of beads and sequins and gorgeous shade of gold it just completes the red dress. With a statement floral clutch and matching shoes both with under gold detailing these add instant glamour to all outfits especially with this dress and cover up. Jewellery wise are some simple flower studs and gorgeous statement bracelet. - This is a perfect outfit for Christmas, you don't get anything more Christmas inspired then shades red and gold.

The Monsoon website and Accessorize have a lovely range of gorgeous pieces perfect for over Christmas and into the New Year. There's something for everyone and everything is completely gorgeous, these just being a few of my favourite choices. Shop here.
