Topshop partywear

A festive dress code doesn't have to involve pairing a rather naff Santa hat with copious amounts of tinsel (unless that's your jam). If you want to stand out from the crowd this Christmas, look no further than Topshop's range of quirky, statement partywear

Snake Embellished Blouse, £55

Slouchy Knot Front Blouse, £29

This knot-front top is so flattering it's bordering on magical. The knot detail skims over your midriff and accentuates your waist, whilst the loose draping of the sleeves are ideal if your upper arms aren't your favourite feature. If you're feeling daring, you can flash a little skin at the back. Alternatively, add a camisole underneath for extra warmth.
