The countdown to Christmas is upon us and so is the panic about what to wear to all the many Christmas parties. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect festive outfit, then look no further, as JD Williams’ party wear collection is brimming with glitz and glamour.
JD Williams surveyed 1,000 women aged 45 plus, revealing that almost a third find occasion wear clothing the hardest to shop for. At an already extremely busy time of year, JD Williams are here to make festive dressing a fun and easy experience.
The online retailer enlisted the help of stylist Antonia Kraskowski, who styled the brand’s Christmas shoot featuring three influencers Natalie Lee, 39, Tova Leigh, 44 and Claire Hall, 46, while offering some tips to help women find occasion wear for the festive season:
“Instagram is a great source of inspiration when it comes to personal style and shopping, particularly for the over-40s. Look for influencer accounts that have a similar body shape to you for new ideas on how to wear items you’d usually avoid as well as handy styling tricks.”
The JD Williams occasion wear collection consists of sequin dresses, velour suiting, glittery tops and embellished tunics. We’ve rounded up all of the best pieces so that you don’t have to.
