Party Wear 2023

Here are some outfits I've pulled together to hopefully inspire you for any upcoming events you may have during this festive period. Please remember to shop your wardrobe first, using these outfits as inspiration. If you do need to get a new outfit, then perhaps renting something from one of the various fashion rental businesses would be a solution. If you are local to Cambridge then you should definitely contact Mandy and Abi from Neon Leo, I have included a couple of their pieces available to rent in the outfits below. Alternatively, shopping preloved is another great, sustainable way to buy a party outfit. My next suggestion would be to shop local and I have included a couple of items from Iris & Violet, who are an independent shop in Cambridge and Stamford. They have great fashion items but also have some lovely gifts and homeware pieces, so please go and have a look in their shop.

These images have all been taken from Pinterest, which is a great starting point for any outfit inspiration.

Reds, blacks, metallics, sheer fabrics and dark based floral prints are all key trend statements that I have highlighted in my recent Autumn Winter 23 trend presentations and these are all perfect for party and evening wear. You can also never go wrong with a velvet piece over christmas either, especially in a lovely rich jewel tone.
