And go “all out” we are, as the right outfit has the power to help us walk a little taller, add Thora Valdimars and Jeanette Madsen, Creative Directors of ROTATE. “In the early days, we noticed a gap in the market for sexy dresses and felt the need for women to embrace their sensuality and take centre stage in their lives. It’s our personal belief, and what sets our brand apart.”
So if you’re ready to switch off from work and harness your inner party animal, rest assured, there are plenty of stylish ways to celebrate the season that don’t include Christmas jumpers. “I’ve noticed that sparkles and lace are huge trends right now,” adds Ashcroft. “I think we’ve seen the popularity of glitter and diamanté styles really grow since 2022, and now sparkles are everywhere, especially dresses. Lace is also always a huge winter trend but this year I think it’s more fun and perhaps a little more risqué, and brown is also having a moment. I love that it offers a new take on classic black styles, and it’s super flattering for all skin tones as it’s the perfect rich, autumnal shade that looks super expensive.”
So, after taking notes from the experts and scouting socials and street style, we’ve come up with a comprehensive list of the seven party wear trends that you’re going to see at every celebration this year. Hint: there is no tinsel, and definitely no slogan tees, instead these are the timeless looks we’re happy to sport this season and the next. But whatever your approach to party dressing, we have a feeling you’ll find at least one piece you’ll love below. See you on the dancefloor.
