The Ultimate Christmas Party Dress: A Guide

If there's one time of the year where you can really go all out and get glammed up, it's got to be a Christmas party. Whether you're at a ball with work, a casual Christmas Eve house party or something in between, it's an ideal time to really invest in something special. That's where we can help! At Cari's Closet, we have an incredible range of stunning dresses which will make you look like you've just stepped off the red carpet. If you want to find your perfect Christmas party dress, keep reading...


How amazing is our Chicago dress? The long sleeves and waist-cinching belt will hide all those pre-Christmas treats (not gonna lie, we've already started on the mince pies, and it's not even December yet!), whilst the sparkle, oh the sparkle, will ensure you're the disco diva that you were always destined to be. The shift style is super flattering for any shape, and you can team it with a pair of black court shoes to finish off the look.


The 1920s was a glamorous time for fashion, and our Chester dress was definitely inspired by that period. I mean, imagine the Boomerang as you swish around in this little number (if you know, you know). The underlay of the dress is fitted, which means it will smooth out your shape. The neckline is so unique, with plaited sequin detail. With such a statement dress, you'll want to keep the rest of the look low-key, so team with some black barely there heels and you're good to go.


If Mrs Claus had a makeover, this is what she'd wear. Every girl needs a little red dress, and our Maria dress is the best of the best. The tiered skirt will skim your tummy, hiding any bloat, and the long sleeves and high neck mean you don't need to worry about accessories! This dress literally has it all, and the lace is so on trend. To style, opt for black suede shoes and a bold red lip - Mac's Lady Danger is our ultimate fave. 


For a classy look, you can't go wrong with a midi dress, and our Alex lace dress is absolutely beautiful. If red isn't your thing, it's also available in lilac and blue, but let's be honest, red is the most festive. The textured lace combined with the ladder trim finish is stunning to look at, and the dropped waist is flattering for every figure. Plus, it has pockets, and we all know the value of pockets in dresses. Style this chic frock with sandals, but remember to avoid any shoes that go above the ankle - you'll make your legs look shorter!


It's all about injecting some sparkle into your life when the party season rolls around, and our Neptune dress is exactly what your winter wardrobe is missing. The black and gold sequins cleverly contrast throughout, and there is a sequin belt which is detachable. We can imagine this dress twinkling away under the lights at a party, so team it with some super high stilettos and dance the night away.


You can't beat a bit of clever panelling to give you shape, and our Gatsby dress has diamond shaped panelling to create the illusion of an hourglass figure. It also has thin straps and a concealed zip. Trust us when we say, this is one party frock you'll come back to time and time again. With a name like Gatsby, was there any doubt that this is the perfect dress for a festive soirée? After all, a little party never killed nobody...


If your Christmas party is a little more formal, we've got ball gowns galore, but we had to give a special shout out to our stunning Bella rose gold gown. I mean, just look at it! Rose gold is the most coveted colour of the year, and what better way to see 2017 out in style than with this beauty. It has a high neck and cut out sides which reveal just the right amount of skin, whilst ensuring the focus remains mostly on the dress, and what a dress it is. 


If you have the budget to splash out on your party dress, our Harley gown is a true showstopper. It has jewel-encrusted detailing all over it, which will make you look like a shimmering goddess. The low back stops it from looking too demure because you should always show a little skin. 

And don't forget the accessories...

Matchy matchy. We loooove our range of studded clutches and heels, and you can buy them both together for €180. There's nude, pink, powder blue, black, pink gloss, gold and burgundy, so you're sure to find a colour that goes perfectly with your Christmas party dress. 

We hope you're inspired to find your Christmas party dress. Sparkle your way through the season with Cari's Closet.

Until next time,
