Reiss Womens Party Style Guide

Reiss Kerensa Dress

It is time to start planning your party outfit for the festive season ahead, so Becky Boyce from global fashion brand Reiss was kind enough to discuss their Party Style Guide to make your decisions easier.

Are there any trends to follow this party season?

Partywear this season has a minimalists’ touch, and definitely channels more understated glamour than in previous years. You’ll find sumptuous jewel colours and darker metallic tones, punctuated with sparkles and statement accessories. We like the contradiction between wearing darker shades like midnight blue, bottle green and graphite and pepping them up with prune or neon accessories, offering a little colour hit.

What is the must-have style dress to wear?

There isn’t really a must-have style of dress – it’s totally up to you! From mini to maxi and bodycon to oversized, there’s a shape and style for everyone. Fit and flare shapes work great on curvy girls as they home-in on the waist (one of the season’s favourites focuses), while minis look great on petite girls and jumpsuits and maxis belong to the gazelles out there.

Reiss Emma Dress

Is the LBD (Little Black Dress) still the go-to dress?

The little black dress will never tire, it’s a timeless classic. However, this season we like our LBDs with a bit of an edge, so we’re choosing ours in black leather, like our ultra-sexy Theodora dress or embellished with sequins like our Emma bodycon dress. These styles have a modern feel to them and instantly elevate the LBD to something a little more head-turning.

Reiss Alison Dress

Which are the stand-out party pieces from your new collection?

Wow, there are too many to choose from, and we think it depends on your mood on the night. However, the Alison dress in red-hot sequins is one of our favourites, it has an unmistakable Sixties vibe and seriously cute cream satin collar and cuffs which are detachable! We also love a jumpsuit for a glamorous party, and our tuxedo-style Sebastien has a glamorous Seventies feel. And of course, a statement maxi dress is always a winner; our Kerensa dress in raspberry has a beautiful all-over print and backless detail with artful pleating.

Reiss Eugenia Shoes

What accessories would you recommend?

Statement shoes and jewellery, definitely. If you opt for a reasonably understated dress then you can really express personality through your accessories. Our shoes this season come dipped in glitter, sprinkled with crystals and in bold jewel shades. When it comes to jewellery, attention-grabbing necklaces and cuffs instantly lift a simple look into something really exciting. Party on!
