While 'party season' is inevitably synonymous with endless, well, parties, 'party dressing' doesn't necessarily have to mean dresses.
What I mean, is that if you're already sick of the sight of sequinned dresses - bearing in mind it's only the beginning of festive mayhem - you're not entirely doomed... there are alternative options.
The jumpsuit, for example. An often overlooked, sometimes underrated, garment that not only does the job of a dress (one-piece outfits require so little thought r.e. styling that they save the day on endless I-forgot-I-RSVPd-yes-to-that occasions), but also save one's modesty during every sudden gust of wind and/or accidental stumble (/arse-over-t*t moment) that inevitably occurs after a couple of mulled wines.
A humble pair of jeans, too, can always rise to the occasion when paired with the right sparkly top and slinky sandal.
A skirt is the perfect way to keep things fresh and feminine without the restriction of a dress. Heading somewhere relatively casual? Tuck in a white tee. Need to zhuzh things up? A silk cami can do no wrong. Had a spontaneous 'sleepover' (no judgement here)? Pack a fresh blouse for the office tomorrow.
