Lifestyle bloggers Alex Gorton and Natasha Poliszczuk of Wear & Where on why this season’s new knits are the perfect pieces to add to your party wardrobe.
When it comes to parties, there’s nothing we love more than a stylish knit. So easy to wear, knits can be dressed up or down, and are suitable for almost any party occasion. From work drinks to children’s festive parties and Christmas Eve cocktails, knits are our go-to choice for seasonal party dressing. Here’s how we’d style some of our favourites…
1. Star quality
“Stars are a contemporary classic and this jumper is just stunning. To be honest, I want to wear it all the time, but can’t think of anything better than styling it with a pair of statement earrings, sparkly heels and super-soft velvet trousers for a chic cocktail party or work Christmas night out.” Alex
2. Metallic stripes
“Now this is my perfect low-key occasion knit. It combines two of my favourite things: stripes and a subtle metallic sheen. Throw on crisp white jeans (yes, you can totally wear them in Winter), add a pair of great flats and you look occasion-worthy, but fuss-free. I’ll be wearing it for casual lunches with friends, my daughter’s December-birthday party, even (whisper it) Christmas Day, when you want to be both festive and comfortable.” Natasha
3. Sequin sparkle
“I am a magpie and love a bit of subtle sparkle. This gorgeous V-neck jumper has sequins across the shoulders and back, giving it a wonderful party feel. I’ve worn mine with big earrings and slim-fit trousers for a cool, contemporary party look.” Alex
4. Chic cashmere
“When the skirt’s this fabulous, who needs a glitzy top half? So dress it down with this gorgeous, simple cashmere knit. Add heels and statement earrings and you’re cocktail-/dinner party-/quite frankly almost any party-ready. There’s a reason this look is a fashion editor favourite: it’s maximum chic without trying too hard.” Natasha
