If you’re looking for outfit inspo for a whole bunch of festive occasions, well, you’re in the right place. There’s always a little extra sparkle this time of year, so let’s embrace this and go full throttle…

1. A simple, shining minidress and nude heels make this easy outfit a go-to.

2. The same combo can be updated with soft drapery and heels in a metallic silver.

4. Perhaps you’re opting for a full-length gown (we certainly aren’t judging) and want to let it do all the talking…

5.  Or you’re keen for nightwear-inspired velvet and a lace cami. Bring on all the rusty tones…

6. All red is an obvious but rewarding look, especially if you’ll be co-ordinating with your sisters, and wearing Dior.

7. Red can also be worn in a dressed-down way. Love the checked coat, trousers and Vans.

8. Points for velvet and even more points if it’s in dusty pink.
