This is our 2022-2023 Christmas party guide for those who love sophisticated, chic looks with a pinch of bon ton, and are looking for inspiration for a party mood that goes beyond déjà vu. Dress is the one garment that easily solves the ‘what-shall-I-wear?’ dilemma. Its midi version is perfect for any occasion, be it a family lunch or a cocktail party in the coolest club in town. In these cases, the sequin effect will never fail. Just choose the less obvious colour, such as the midnight blue of the below-the-knee dresses by Rotate Birger Christensen, or the powder pink version with thin fringes of mini-sequins. The metallic texture and les Pacotilles, the plastic or metal discs joined together by rings, have always distinguished Paco Rabanne's style, which is perfect for the most eagerly awaited party season of the year, with its tops that leave the back uncovered, designed entirely with small gold and silver metallic hearts. The platform shoes by Mach & Mach, imposing due to their block heel and platform, crafted from scarlet or lime green satin, or with transparent PVC uppers and double bow studded with crystals and rhinestones, are perfect to complete the New Year's Eve outfit.
