Dress your best this festive season

Put your hand up if you have a zillion events this festive season?! Yep, I feel you. I literally have something on each week leading up to Christmas. Dinners, birthdays and of course Christmas parties.

It's always so busy around this time of year so each year, I like to add one or two dresses to my wardrobe in preparation for the festivities.

Even though I love dressing for events, I still make sure my yearly additions are classic or versatile enough to be able to wear them for a) several occasions b) day and night or c) throughout the different seasons.

This gorgeous dress from Cue Canberra Outlet caught my eye because of its Japanese inspired floral print. The asymmetrical zip design makes it a little different (and super flattering!) and the longer sleeve makes it versatile enough to be worn during the day or even for work.

To dress it up, I teamed it up with gold accessories and a bright red lip. For day, I would team it up with a pair of neutral pointy flats or black strappy sandals and a crossbody bag.

Style tip: A metallic box clutch glams up any outfit and makes it super easy to switch up your work dress from day to event-ready! 

Sequence never goes out of style and unless your sequences are falling off your garment DO NOT ever part with it - trust me, I have made this mistake before.

There is nothing you wear that will make you feel more festive than a sparkly sequenced dress.

This 3/4 sleeved shift dress from Cue Canberra Outlet was love at first sight. I love the shape because it gives the dress a retro feel yet the style is still so modern and chic and hello colour!

I like that it's roomy so no matter how much eating and drinking is ahead, you know it'll still be super comfy at the end of the night and sparkly enough to take you to the dance floor.

The dress alone makes a statement, so all it needed was a pair of black pumps and a red lip.

If you are going for more of a retro look, these super cute sunnies would be the perfect accessory.

Both dresses are from CUE Canberra Outlet
