Party Season Fashion Survival Guide | Style For Every Girl

We're here to help navigate all your wardrobe dilemmas for the end-of-year party season.

Spring Racing leads straight in to the Christmas party period, and before you know it, it’s New Years Eve! So many parties, so little clothing in your wardrobe…

Whether you’re shopping for a new look, or looking for ways to re-style your existing pieces, we’ve pulled together some advice on what to wear for every type of girl.

From the lady-like, feminine girl to the tomboy; the classic dresser to the trendy fashionista, we have got you covered with our tips to dress the part while keeping your individual style.

Feminine: For the girly-girl


Feminine Dressing 101: Dress to flatter your shape. It’s a no-brainer!

A cinched-in waist flatters every body type, and creates a feminine hourglass silhouette. Opting for a wide leg or a-line skirt further exaggerates the hourglass shape.

You can make a loose-fitting dress or jumpsuit more feminine by creating a faux waistline with a pretty belt.

The Valencia Jumpsuit from Interval is a perfect example of modern femininity. A wrap-tie at the waist creates a defined shape, while the delicate shoulder straps and deep neckline draw the eye to the décolletage.

With Spring in full bloom, and summer just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to elevate your feminine style with light, floaty fabric in romantic colours and floral prints.

Tomboy: For the "Jeans and Sneakers" Girl


For many girls, the upcoming party season can be daunting. So many events have a dress code, but if you’re the kind of girl who hates dresses it can be difficult knowing what to wear!

We know that a pink, frilly number is out of the question. Instead, try a structured, monochrome outfit. The architectural lines of a structured piece is a practical way to dress up without turning into a princess.

The We’ll Be Alright shorts from C/MEO Collective are a great alternative to a skirt. Pair back with a tucked-in, loose-fitting cami (and a flute of champagne), and you’ll be all set to kick off your shoes and hit the dance floor.

You can also experiment with styles inspired my menswear staples, like the Make You Stay shirt dress from C/MEO. The tuxedo-style lapels is enough of a statement that you don’t need to worry about girly accessories to complete your look.

Classic: The "Less is More" Girl


You can’t go wrong with a classic LBD, and the classic dresser knows it. A dress like the Paulina Slip from Lulu & Rose is a chic and nostalgic take on the little black dress.

Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn this party season by keeping it simple and sophisticated.

Classic styles steer away from prints and gaudy colours. Instead, you’ll find strong, bold shapes that build on iconic looks.

The Spell Out dress from C/MEO Collective takes that classic black dress, and mixes in a 1970s throw-back with beautiful waterfall fluted sleeves.

The best part about opting for a LBD is that it’s the perfect backdrop for stand-out accessories. Why not choose jewellery that adds a bit of “tinsel” for your Christmas party.

Trendy: The Risk-Taking Fashion Girl


Every trendsetter knows that exposed shoulders and silky fabrics are this seasons strongest trends.

Bring your shoulders out of their hibernation this spring with one of the many “cold shoulder” options available right now. The Maurie & Eve 1979 Top is a great option that can be layered with the silky Silence Skirt for a polished look that is bang on trend.

When it comes to textures, it’s all about mixing crisp cotton linens with silks and charmeuse satins. The liquidity of the sateen finish provides an eye-catching juxtaposition to the rigid cotton.

Now that you know how to put together the perfect outfit to get you through this party season, it’s time to kick back and enjoy the festivities. Whether it’s a Christmas Part, a birthday or a family gathering, you will be looking chic – and remaining true to your own personal style!
