Let's party!

’Tis the season of fun, frivolity and parties galore. Make sure you razzle-dazzle in December’s finest. From fabulous festive dresses, all-in-one jumpsuits and dapper suiting for the boys. The Very crew show us how they’ll be styling it this Christmas

If there’s ever a time to go all out in the style stakes, it’s now. Christmas is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to something that sparkles. It’s at this time of year that sequins come into their own - and this year especially, we’ve gone sequin crazy. Adorn yourself in sparkle and high shine at every opportunity, day or night. It’s all about maximalism and more is more, so lay it on thick and douse yourself in glitter. Whether you fancy a head-to-toe sequin jumpsuit, a show-stopping minidress or a shimmery cami, we’ve got your back.


Finishing touches for her





Men, go all out with suiting. Plush velvets, heritage checks and baroque prints are where it’s at.

If you’re not down for head-to-toe suiting, wear a blazer with black jeans – and don't miss your chance to don a dicky bow and pocket square. 

Ensure you look your very best – get a hair tidy and beard trim asap. Hands need a little TLC? We’re all for the male mani. Do the groundwork so you’re game, set and MATCH for all of the main events.


Suited and booted

A 70s-style zip-up jumper is at the top of every stylish man’s Christmas list this year, and it’s a perfect (and practical – brrrr) party piece when teamed with skinny jeans, a blazer and slick loafers. If you’re worried you might get too warm, a T-shirt underneath will also add some cool to your blazer and jeans combination.


Finishing touches for him


Time to impress

A little black dress is an absolute style saviour. It always looks chic and pulled together and lets you have fun with accessories. If you have your eye on a OTT pair of shoes, wear them with your LBD. For 2017, look to exaggerated shoulder details, metallic patterns, ruffles, lace and – yup, you got it – sequins and shine!

Longer-length skirts are also making waves, and the best news is anyone can wear one. They don’t come much hotter than this pleated metallic number. Swish your way through the season stylishly, teaming with sequins for evening or with a fitted jumper and ankle boots for a dose of daytime pizzazz.
