Party season is well and truly upon us. And I probably should have written this post about a month ago but there you go. Before I continue, let me just say I LOVE party dresses, this is not a post bashing them by any means, but I wanted to give you a few different outfit options/inspiration to make you stand out this part season, as I know for me that unless it’s a vintage number, I always have the fear that someone will turn up in the same dress as me. So I’ve looked into a few other options for you to make sure you are looking your best this party season. Including the piece I am loving at the moment-sequin trousers.
How good are these gold Sezane ones? They look great with this arket pussybow blouse or any satin/sheer puff sleeve blouse, I do love a gold and cream combination but they’d just look stunning with a black one too, I’ve linked a couple of styling options below-and if you want to make them into a jazzy daywear option (as who says sequin trousers are only for parties-not me) they look just as good with an oversized jumper too.
I also love the maxi skirt and top option, I recently wore the same arket blouse as I’m wearing here and left the bow open with my vintage silk maxi skirt in the same colour (see here – linked a very similar one below) and that went down a treat, I loved that outfit and am definitely planning to wear it again soon. So you can also mix and match these outfits to create different looks for different festive events. Side note: everyone actually thought it was one dress and were amazed when I told them it was separate pieces. I’ve linked a similar two piece by Sezane below, how pretty is that tulle skirt and shirt?

Another thing I love and need to get into more are suits, I’ve included a dreamy one from and Other Stories (would look great with the arket satin blouse underneath, similar vibes to my satin outfit but in suit form and that rather snazzy gold one below from Topshop. That would look great either worn just the blazer with jeans, or as a set, or just the skirt with a blouse. That’s three different looks right there, and the same goes for THAT sleeper party pyjama set that’s been on my wishlist forever too. I’ve also included the matching top to the gold sequin Sezane trousers if you wanted to do double sequins, or how about a black sequin jumpsuit?
