Are you sick of sparkle? Bored of bodycon? Does tinsel and glitter and fringing and lamé leave you a little dead inside? Well then Christmas Grinch, we have just the tonic for you. This year, you can say NO to party dresses (and all the sequins and razzamatazz that goes with it). And say YES to the tuxedo.

Sleek, chic, minimal, it’s the perfect antidote to all those sparkly Christmas dresses. There are velvet tuxedos to stay right on trend (see the Clarendon tux from Archive by Alexa), brocade if you’re keen on print (the River Island jacquard suit is pretty perfect) or skip the traditional pant-suit and go straight for a tuxedo style jumpsuit or tux playsuit – Lavish Alice have some beautiful pieces.

And if Cara, Olivia and Alexa say it’s a DO, then it’s definitely a DO.

Wear with a little lace for a hint of sexy and relish in the knowledge that you have made a wise purchase that will take you from the Christmas Office Party to the big work presentation and cocktails with the girls and maybe even a wedding (if you’re feeling adventurous) next year!
