Fashion Tips for Christmas Party Season

Here, the ultimate guide to what to wear to every holiday party.

THE silly season is upon us and new research reveals more than 63 per cent of ­partygoers have witnessed a fashion or etiquette faux pas at or after a Christmas party.

According to the lighthearted survey by department store David Jones, 45 per cent of fashion mishaps witnessed are tacky Christmas-themed accessories or outfits, and 38 per cent involve guests ending up barefoot.

David Jones womenswear buying manager Teneille Ferguson said it was important to stick to a dress code and make an effort if the occasion called for it. “People struggling to walk in heels or, even worse, carrying them is never a good look,” she said.

Flats and embellished sandals and slides are having a moment, so it’s the perfect excuse to avoid heels if they’re not going to stand the test of time at a function. “Being comfortable in what you’re wearing is ­always the safest bet to avoid a fashion faux pas. Avoiding gimmicky accessories is also key.”


Ms Ferguson said the ­festive season was a great time to wear something a ­little different and more ­adventurous than your usual style called for. “For a work Christmas party, wearing something sophisticated and not baring too much skin would be advised,” she said.

“For a barbecue or something more informal — a pretty floral dress with sandals would be perfect, as would an off-the-shoulder top or cami with jeans.” Etiquette expert Anna Musson said the most common festive season faux pas include giving gag gifts, ­re-gifting without checking for cards, and gifts from the two-dollar shop.


“Never arrive empty-handed, never let gift givers know you don’t like their gift, don’t avoid saying ‘Merry Christmas’. It is Christmas so embrace it. And the big no-no, being noticeably drunk at the office Christmas party,” she said.
