Make a Big, Brilliant, Bright Impact at Xmas Parties
Monday, 18 December 2017 | Kate
You could dig out the usual little black dress and join thousands - if not millions - of other women wearing variations on exactly the same theme. You could dig out a smart suit and go Xmas partying looking like you've just stepped out of the office or – at best – out of a Bond movie. But isn't that a bit of a yawn?
If you fancy pushing the boho boat out and making an entirely different impression, we have a huge collection of the most lusciously colourful, wonderfully eccentric and beautifully made hippie and boho clothing for you. Here's how to create a memorable look for that all-important Christmas party.
Women - Take one gorgeous little wrap skirt...
We do a great line in wrap skirts, some a blaze of colour and others a little more subtle. The brightest ones look amazing with a plain black sparkly top and patterned tights, and the plainer ones go perfectly with a bright, colourful top. If you're feeling bold and brave you can go the whole hog and team a patterned wrap skirt with one of our beautiful long sleeve pixie tops, or something sexy, strappy and sleeveless. Dress things up to the max with heels, or go funky with your biggest, chunkiest biker boots.
Men - Black harem dungarees for super-cool boho blokes
Black is smart, posh and perfect for parties. Try our men's black harem dungarees, a splendid look teamed with a crisp shirt, with either a granddad collar (we sell a fabulous pale grey one and another in burgundy) or pirate frills down the front. Or go the opposite and wear a pair of our extraordinarily colourful tie dyed harem trousers worn with a plain black or white fitted T. Cool as a cool thing!
Women - Dress up to the nines with a pure silk fairy dress
Colourful, floaty and strappy with a perfect fit every time thanks to a delicately elasticated bodice... that's our silk fairy dresses, the perfect Christmas party treat and available in small to plus sizes. Some come with golden embroidered hems and detailing, some are prettily pale, others deep and dramatic. But they all feel luxuriously soft and flow beautifully. All you need to do is add heels and accessorise for a truly unique party look.
Men – Your own smartest trousers plus a crazy colourful top!
Fancy the best of both worlds? Let the rebel in you go free with a pair of smart trousers teamed with one of the plent's most colourful, vivid men's tops. Our men's medieval style stonewashed cotton shirt, for example, is fabulous, available in three masculine colours with a distinct air of Poldark-inspired piracy about them. Romantic or what!
If you have little ones at home who want to dress up too, hop over to our children's department to find teeny-weeny silk fairy dresses, child-size hippy tops in rainbow colours and fab little tie dye baggy trousers, all perfect for miniature hippies-in-the-making!
