Grazia’s Fashion Team Reveal Their Christmas Party Looks

GALLERY >> Grazia’s Fashion Team Reveal Their Christmas Party Looks

Gemma Hayward, Senior Fashion Editor

'I've got this snake print dress for dinner and drinks with friends in mind. The midi hem-length makes it suitable for the office and just adding a heel will vamp it up for the evening. I love shirt dresses, but generally I wear them more casually. But the sheer panel top and glittery fabric of this Cos dress makes this ideal for the evening and perfect for the work Christmas party. Finally I’ll throw on this Whistles sequinned top with a pair of boyfriend jeans and pointed courts for drinks with my friends. It will add a bit of Christmas sparkle without me looking like a Christmas tree!'

Sophie Bew, Senior Fashion Assistant

'At Christmas I basically just want to look like a princess. This requires embellishment, swishy skirts and possibly red velvet (these are suede but totally fab). It’s definitely not my normal look but I can’t resist a ‘party party’ dress at this time of year. I also rather enjoy the kitsch of the stars and the Charlotte Olympia purse.'
