12 days of Christmas dresses
Got the party invite(s)? We’ve got the standout dress
This Christmas, we’ve teamed up with 12 of our beloved brands to create an exclusive limited-edition collection of Christmas party dresses (plus a jumpsuit and two-piece for those who don't ‘do’ dresses). From the office party to New Year’s Eve and everything in between, these irresistible designs cater for every Christmas invite and fashion mood.
1. The ‘make an entrance’ dress
Gothic details and deep crimson are guaranteed to turn heads. This design by Ghost has been crafted in luxurious weighty velvet, meaning you’ll make an impression and stay warm at the party. Win win.
2. The after-hours tuxedo
A tux has been the cool woman’s party go-to ever since Yves Saint Laurent debuted Le Smoking in 1966. This jumpsuit iteration by Reiss has all the glamour you’d expect from such an iconic party look: slick, smart and perennially stylish.
3. The LGOD (Little Going Out Dress)
Like the Little Black Dress… but make it sparkle. Whether you’re wearing it for a girls’ night out, work do or New Year’s Eve, Mint Velvet’s sequin mini dress is made for dancing.
4. The Boxing Day dress
Looking for comfort and style rolled into one? This velvet midi dress by Toast is just the thing. Smart, festive and with breathing room for those turkey leftovers, it’s the perfect pick for Boxing Day’s family gathering.
5. The wear-anywhere look
This coordinating top and skirt from Pure Collection will go the distance at Christmas. From pub lunches to work Christmas parties to watching Love Actually on the sofa, it’s a chic all-rounder that can be dressed up or down.
6. The ultimate fashion dress
Steer clear of the novelty jumpers and tinsel accessories with a more high-fashion take on festive dressing. This Finery creation will keep you looking current with its so-now checks, high collar and A-line silhouette.
7. The desk to dancefloor dress
The festive calendar requires a fine balance of work and play, and Jigsaw’s dress has both areas covered. With longer sleeves and an elegant hemline it’s certainly work appropriate, while the olive silk works well for after-dark activities.
8. The kiss-me-at-midnight dress
New Year’s Eve calls for the most show-stopping number you’ve worn all year. With a high drama silhouette and metallic details, this Whistles dress is a strong contender. We love the flattering ruffle at the waist too.
9. The Christmas Day dress
Looking for an outfit that feels Christmassy but still chic? Designed by Hush, this shirt dress has a smart collar, pretty sheer sleeves and a classy star print that’s just the right amount of festive.
10. The office party dress
Work events require a certain silhouette, and this design by Warehouse has it down: long sleeves, a classic high neck, and a midi length with just a hint of a slit. Add forest green to the mix and you’ve got yourself an ideal office Christmas party look.
11. The 90s slip
All Saints is known for its rock ’n’ roll sensibility, and this green velvet slip dress is no exception. Layer it up and down between parties for a look that lasts all day and night.
12. The ‘not a dress’ dress
Sequins and lace not your thing? This one’s for you. Jaeger created this exclusive velvet two-piece as a more androgynous take on Christmas party dressing – throw on with your favourite heels or flats and you’ll be out the door in seconds.
