As we head full speed towards Christmas, diaries are beginning to fill up with festive occasions and events, giving us plenty of opportunities to get dressed up to the nines and feeling like a million dollars once again as we celebrate the biggest occasion of the year.
After an underwhelming December in 2020 which saw us confined to our homes in the midst of another national lockdown, this year, we’re going all out on the festive cheer, and shopping for the perfect outfits to see us through our packed calendars of social get-togethers and sophisticated soirees starts here.
If you’re feeling a little out of practice when it comes to getting glamorous, then luxury fashion brand SAFIRO has got you covered, offering up a range of show-stopping party outfits and opulent ensembles to see you through the season in style.
With their new Glimmer collection of gorgeous dresses, jackets and other garments that are just perfect for Christmas, New Year and beyond – making quite the entrance with its recent launch – we’ve rounded up some of the very finest picks you’ll want to be seen in this festive season and won’t want to take off for a long time to come.
SAFIRO festive dresses
The LBD has long been an evening essential – but when it comes to the festive season, it’s all about shimmering embellishments and dazzling fabrics. From champagne receptions to classy cocktail nights, a show-stopping dress is a must to get you feeling like a million dollars, and feminine shapes will accentuate your silhouette and ensure that you stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.
SAFIRO dresses are elegant, alluring and versatile, made from luxurious silk fabrics with silk satin lining for a sumptuous look and feel. And they’re seasonless, too – which means even after the party season is over, they’ll see you through many more occasions throughout the year.
Here are some of our top picks to get your hands on for the lead-up to Christmas.
Lilac Agate Jacquard Dress
From their shiny new Glimmer collection, the breath-taking Lilac Agate Jacquard dress is a sophisticated and structured garment designed to wow the crowd. Elegant, feminine and entirely unique, it’s guaranteed to win you compliments.
Platinum Pearl Dresses
Crafted from stretch silk crepe and featuring a luxurious silk lining, the platinum pearl dress is another show-stopper that feels as good on as it looks. Available in both midnight blue and black with gold shimmer, it’s designed to dazzle under the festive lights and effortlessly accentuate your figure.
Rose Quartz Dress
Beautifully hand-crafted from silk jacquard with gold leaf features, semi-transparent tulle and a luxurious velvet trim, the rose quartz dress oozes style and sophistication. Fun, flirty and utterly fabulous, it’s an essential addition to your festive party wardrobe.
White Coral Lace Dress
If you prefer a more minimalistic look – because let’s face it, sometimes less really is more – then the gorgeous white coral lace dress, made from wool with a slinky silk lining, is a flattering asymmetrical cut with gorgeous French corded lace detailing and is versatile enough to be worn in a range of different ways. Accessorise with dazzling diamonds and gold jewellery, add a brightly coloured handbag and shoes or simply team with blacks or neutrals for a more pared down look.
Of course, if dresses aren’t your cup of tea then tactile fabrics and rich textures are an easy way to add a luxurious feel to just about any outfit. Try SAFIRO’s jade pearl silk tops, chiffon blouses or white lily trousers and team with a festive jacket for a glamorous, yet understated look.
The perfect jacket will accentuate curves and add them where necessary, holding structure and nipping you in at the waist for an elegant and sophisticated silhouette and making for just the right finishing touch to your evening outfit.
Each of these will pair perfectly with the party dresses we’ve picked out above, with something to suit all tastes and styles.
Black Crystal Wool Jacket
A black jacket is about as versatile as they come, and can be worn with an outfit of any colour to add a sophisticated edge. This structured blazer is adorned with shimmery sequins to glisten in the Christmas and New Year’s lights – the ultimate piece-de-resistance and the perfect way to dress up simpler evening wear for a little extra drama.
Black Pearl Shimmery Tweed Jacket
This lightweight jacket is made from shimmery tweed, which is something you don’t see very often – and features sumptuous black velvet detailing to accentuate the waist.
Glamorous resort wear and New Year’s abroad
Escaping to the sunshine for the festive period? That doesn’t have to mean compromising on glamour. The bright, fun, alluring and refreshing colours of SAFIRO’s Glimmer collection are perfect for celebrating the festive season in warmer countries.
Here are some easy outfit ideas:
Splurge on the blue topaz shimmery silk dress – lightweight, comfortable and made from stretch silk and with a silk lining, it will see you through the warmer evenings in style.
The finishing touches
Even the most well put-together outfits are only as glamorous as their accessories, and SAFIRO’s range of stunning hand-crafted brooches, adorned with crystals and other unique embellishments, are the perfect show-stopper. Keep the remainder of your accessories minimal to avoid overkill and ensure a refined and beautiful feel that is certain to win you compliments.
