It feels like it was only yesterday that we celebrated New Year, welcoming 2021 with our hearts full of hope, anticipating what the next 12 months would bring our way. And just like that, in the blink of an eye, we are in November already. Ladies, it’s time to start planning our outfits to ensure we celebrate festivity’s in style! To help you navigate through the sea of sparkle, glitter and bright colours, we decided to share some great celebrity party looks for your inspiration.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Years go by but SJP remains a glorified fashion icon, never failing to surprise us with her jaw dropping outfits. She was photographed rocking this look whilst filming a scene for the new movie “And Just Like That” in New York on Nov 9th. This ensemble is a good example of how a simple black jumpsuit can be elevated through statement accessories like a shiny necklace, a golden handbag on a chain and heeled sandals with colourful rhinestones. A fuchsia blazer thrown on top of your classy black understated outfit will make sure that you will not go unnoticed.
Who gives a better example of how to embrace your amazing curves than Kim K? This leather look body hugging maxi dress from the Fendi x Skims collection is the epitome of sexy and classy. This outfit would be a great option for a lady boss who is brave enough to be in the spotlight for the whole night at a corporate party. The dress tells the story here so be careful not to overdo the jewellery; some diamond studs and a matching bracelet will be more than enough to complete this stunning look.
Rihanna’s looks are not for the faint hearted, and this outfit is no exception. Riri says that its self-confidence, not the physique that creates sex-appeal. We could not agree more! Don’t fancy breaking the bank getting an outfit for a night out with your girls? You don’t need to. Opt for an oversized graphic tee and accessorize it! Wrap a studded black belt around to accentuate your waist and add some pearls, rhinestones and chains (a lot of them!) to create this fabulous look. Add high heeled perforated boots to take this outfit to the next level, and you are ready to rock & roll!
In the mood for something more girly and feminine? Check out this cool outfit from Dua Lipa. Nothing screams “girly” more than pink and butterflies. Besides, the 00s style is making a loud come back this year. It is still not too late to re-create your own version of Destiny’s Child meets The Charmed outfit.
Miley Cyrus has demonstrated on many occasions how to let your inner rebel out, and there is no better scene for channelling this energy than a night out in the club with your friends. Make Miss Cyrus your sprit animal this party season with a 70s inspired ensemble, and don’t forget about the sexy smokey eyes and wild voluminous hair… Life is too short to always be a good girl!
Anya Taylor Joy
Anya Taylor Joy had us all fall in love with the 60s fashion again after the release of the famous Netflix show “The Queen’s Gambit”. If you would like to emulate this era on your Christmas night, you could spice it up by choosing a crop top or a bralette instead of a conventional blazer. Opera gloves will give your Jackie-O-gone-wild look an extra edge.
Do you know the secret to being a real fashionista? Zendaya certainly does. If you’d like to look like someone who just stepped off the cover of a fashion magazine, opt for an eclectic style. At first glance you may think that nude pumps don’t really go with a multi-chain halter top. Correct? Correct! But this unexpected mish-mash of garments is exactly what gives your outfit an editorial vibe! The cut of Zendaya’s skirt is quite traditional for an office lady. Yet the bold checked print creates a totally different mood. Mixing items of different styles is an art that takes time to master… Be brave and don’t shy away from experiments! One thing to remember though is the colour palette. If garments complement each other colour-wise, it’s a good start already.
October Fest has gone but who said you can’t be inspired by a traditional Bavarian look for a Christmas party to have some fun? Self-irony is another regalia of a real fashionista. But don’t get too carried away recreating this style to the point it becomes a costume! Olivia Rodrigo knows how to resort to fashion references in style. Tartan print will give your corset that grunge Vivienne Westwood flavour of a catwalk item. Refrain from using the predictable petticoat and opt for a satin (an unexpected fabric in this case!) skirt of a matching colour that will emphasize your incredible curves. A statement necklace of some quirky shape will be a final fashion element in this creative look.
How would a modern Aphrodite who just came out from the sea foam look like these days? Most probably like Ariana Grande in this photo. This beautiful Neptunian dress makes Ariana look very feminine, fragile and ethereal. However, an oversized dad blazer and sparkly pink statement shoes make this outfit very trendy at the same time.
Winnie Harlow just gave us a useful masterclass on how to build your whole outfit around some stunning designer statement high boots, making them the centrepiece of her whole outfit. If you have similar boots in your closet that you are considering for a party, go for it! Don’t overcomplicate the upper part of your body with shiny fabrics and bright colours. A simple bodysuit in black (or even a mesh one for anyone feeling bold ) paired with a faux fur coat or gilet will do the job. Add some accessories and jewellery and you are ready for the unforgettable night!
Burlesque theme will always be popular for a Christmas party. If you’d like to look elegant and stand out from the crowd, go for a mono-colour outfit like Ciara. A Christmas night out is the perfect excuse to go over the top and use those beads, pearls, platforms, heels and satiny fabrics. Shine bright, this is your night girl!
If going over the top is not really in your nature, take a look at Emily Ratajkowski’s simple, yet quite frankly amazing look. The goddess-like maxi skirt elongates her amazing figure and makes her look classy yet gorgeous. A see-through bodysuit/top, on the other hand, creates that edgy and seductive vibe that many of us would like to achieve to make this magical night the one to remember.
This timeless look by Chiara Ferragni is a style that can never go wrong. A little black sequinned dress is always a great choice for any party, any time of the year. When choosing one, look for an interesting neckline and a statement belt that will accentuate your assets. The mega trendy over the knee boots will create a very sexy fashionable look. If you opt for slightly lower heels or flats, you will also be able to dance your night away which is always great news!
This look reinvents the standard casual denim outfits, by pairing the cropped jacket with a maxi transparent tutu skirt. Be creative with your choice of undergarments to pair these items with. The set doesn’t have to be an expensive designer one, but an interesting print like Camila Coelho’s, will definitely make a loud statement. Add a bright handbag with some clashing print to complete this killer look.
Diamonds are ladies’ best friends, especially on a Christmas night. When wearing a black outfit, you can get away with a lot of them: massive chandelier earrings, embellishments on the skirt, crystals and beads on the shoes and the bag. If sparkle alone is not enough, opt for a perforated top with a deep cleavage like Aimee Song. A simple black blazer will not only keep you warm but will also tone the whole look down and add a classy finishing touch to your whole outfit.
