I hate to be the person to do this (I’m lying, I love to be the person) but it’s currently 12.27 pm on the 28th of October, and I’m about to drop the C word. Sequins have arrived in GTT HQ and we’re already counting down the days until it’s acceptable to blast Mariah Carey throughout the office because girls, we’re almost Christmas ready! It seems that every girl’s inner magpie comes out around Christmas as we want to wear nothing but sequins throughout the month of December, but it seems that this year we’ve given partywear a revamp and it’s more extra than ever! After our hopes of a Christmas party were dashed last year (Thanks a lot, covid!) everyone seems to be getting that little bit more excited about our fashion, and we’re well and truly seeing this with our extravagant party wear this year!
Last week a customer referred to this dress as “Tinkerbell vibes” and we couldn’t agree more! I’ve already called dibs on this one for our Christmas party after falling in love with the stunning iridescent green. The ruching at the front of this one is super flattering with the extra material skimming over any lumps or bumps while also drawing attention to the waistline. The lurex material also means that the dress is stretchy and lightweight making for maximum comfort! Not feeling the green? No worries, we also have this one in a more subtle silver!
This wrap dress combines two of our favourite trends for Christmas parties: red dresses and a touch of glitz! This style is universally flattering at it ties at the waist, drawing the eye to the natural waistline, and lifts the bust. The ruffled skirt adds volume to the bottom half of the body which would help any of our apple shaped girls balance out the body while also adding interest to the outfit. Between the bold colour, flattering cut, and flecks of gold throughout, this dress is a statement in itself so all you need is a pair of subtle gold heels to complete the look!
More of a “jeans and a nice top” kind of girl? We’ve got you covered! Jewel tones are having a real moment right now and our eyes have been drawn to this emerald green in particular. The puff sleeves are always flattering and slimming on the arms while the more fitted cut at the mid section pulls in the waist at its most narrow part. The buttons down the front of the top add a super sweet, feminine look. We were also able to get our hands on this one in orange for the perfect statement outfit!
We couldn’t resist but to give you a little sneak peek of this one on our stories yesterday evening and you all went crazy for it, and we don’t blame you! This again highlights two huge trends in partywear this year, with the pretty emerald green colour and the all over sequins. It also showcases one of our favourite styles with that square neckline. While the midi length of the dress makes it quite classy and sophisticated, the neckline contrasts this by revealing the collarbones and showing off that little bit of skin which helps elongate the body. Looking to add even more drama to this one? We also have it in black as the perfect way to turn heads!
A bodysuit is one of our go-to styles when it comes to our winter nights out, and this sequin one is at the top of our wish list this year! The bodysuit is always a great choice paired with high waisted jeans if you’re looking to give your outfit a slimming streamlined look. The deep v neck of this one paired with the faux wrap style lifts the bust in a super natural way, while the puff shoulders and gathered effect at the bottom of the sleeves are a surefire way to make sure your ‘fit is flattering on the arms. If you’re looking to lighten the look a little bit we also have it in a silver sequin. Due to the sequins and the fact that this style will highlight your curves it can be seen as quite a feminine option, so the best way to counteract this would be with a pair of leather look jeans to add some edge to the outfit.
