Festive trends you need on your radar

Green? For the festive season? I know, groundbreaking! But, let’s be honest, how excited are we all for rich reds, metallics and Christmas-tree green to come back into our wardrobe? These amazing colours are definitely on their way back in. But there are a few other trends, hues and textures that I want to chat to you about for the gazillion Christmas parties you’ve got lined up in your iCal.

Green with envy

Let’s kick off with the classic green, but not as you know it. This season’s top piece that everyone and their Insta profile has been rocking, the midi skirt, has had a wintery update with this amazing colour. This will look awesome with chunky knitwear and boots for daytime and a cute cami and heels for the evening.

Green doesn’t get through the Christmas season without meeting it’s bestie mate velvet. These velvet pants just scream Christmas to me and are the ultimate in festive sass.

The end of the rainbow

Multi coloured sparkles are seriously big for this party season. Nasty Gal are absolutely killing it with this gorgeous long sleeved mini. Paired with the socks and sandals combination from above? You’re onto a winning outfit. Plus, you can grab student discount on Nasty Gal with your UNiDAYS membership and you’ll be laughin’ all the way to the party at how much of a bargain your outfit was!

Topshop are getting in on the act with this incredible multi-toned green glittery dress and fancy tights combo from their #TOPSHOPXHALPERNcollection, giving off all the Studio 54 glamour. 

Miss Selfridge are jumping on this rainbow sparkle trend with an awesome jumpsuit. This is perfect if you’re not a fan of dresses for going out in and it also means that you don’t have to bother fake-tanning your whole body. Wins all round. Plus, this is another dream that you can bag money off with your student status!

Another one of my favourite brands for affordable party wear, Dorothy Perkins are loving this trend with this easy to wear sequin tee. This is amazing if you love the classic ‘jeans and a nice top’ party look. Pop on your favourite black skinnies and your comfiest heels and you’ll be the happiest queen at the party.

Finally on the multi-toned glitz is a gem from Missguided. This is beaut if you like the more neutral tones and rainbow is giving you the fear! Shop it and save with your UNiDAYS student discount, gal!

On the platform

This Boohoo sporty sheer socks and gold platform sandals combo is just ridiculously cute and everyone needs to be wearing it, this instant! No more chilly toes trudging from party to party for you, no sir.

There we have my perfect trend-focused pieces for the festive season. Who’d have thought we’d be actually wanting to wear tights and socks for party season? Not me but I am all over it! Times have changed with these awesome hosiery updates. We’ve still got our safety blanket of green and sparkles but with a little unicorn-style edge. How could you not enjoy party time when you can dress up in these incredible pieces?
