Sparkles and Sequins
A classic trend that comes back into fashion every time the festive season rolls around, sparkles and sequins can be used to create a beautifully eye-catching look that is extra special. Whether it’s a mini dress embellished with stunning sequins or a subtle glitter clutch bag that adds a touch of sparkle to your outfit, you can easily incorporate this timeless trend in any way you choose! Finding the perfect style for the party season is simple, as there are so many options out there for you to choose from.
Here at Yumi, our winter collection features plenty of sequinned and sparkly pieces in an array of colours for you to feast your eyes on. With gorgeous embellished dresses and sequin-trim tops, and jumpers that can be styled in a variety of different ways, our range provides you with multiple outfit options to see you through the festive season. Whatever look you opt for, you can accessorise it with a neutral pair of heels and a seasonal faux-fur coat to keep you protected from the cold.
Velvet is another key trend that makes an ideal outfit choice for any Christmas party. Soft and comfortable, this luxurious fabric is guaranteed to keep you warm in chilly temperatures while also providing an elegant aesthetic that is sure to stand out from the crowd. Velvet is a must-have fabric for the winter season, so whether you are looking for an outfit featuring subtle hints of velvet or a full velvet piece that makes a statement, both options are sure to fit right in at any formal or smart-casual Christmas celebration.
There are plenty of ways to wear velvet this season, but it’s important that you choose a style that you feel comfortable in for your big night out. Try one of our gorgeous velvet midi dresses for an instant feminine, sophisticated look or go bold with one of our statement velvet blazers paired with your favourite smart trousers and blouse. A velvet jumpsuit also offers an easy-to-wear option as it can be coordinated with simple accessories to create a showstopping ensemble that is perfect for the festive season. It makes a great alternative to a party dress as it provides a higher level of comfort, which is essential for dancing the night away.
We believe that less is more when it comes to accessories. While it might be tempting to adorn yourself with multiple pieces of jewellery and other decorative accessories this Christmas, choosing a small number of your favourite items is enough to finish off your outfit and elevate your look for that upcoming party. Add delicate or statement jewellery such as a necklace, bracelet or earrings to contrast with your outfit and create a look that you love.
At any Christmas party, be sure not to carry too many belongings with you, especially if you’re planning on spending most of your time on the dancefloor. We recommend opting for a small clutch bag or a design featuring a shoulder strap so that you are able to enjoy your night without feeling weighed down. Here at Yumi, we offer a huge selection of bags and purses for you to choose from, including beautiful embellished party bags and on-trend sequin clutch bags that are guaranteed to add some extra sparkle to your look.
With our ultimate Christmas party style guide, you’ll be able to find the perfect outfit for your Christmas party in no time at all. Plus, we offer an excellent selection of partywear, accessories and shoes in our women’s collection, so you’re guaranteed to be stepping out in style this year.
