'Tis time to feel party-ready — literally.

The epitome of all things party lies in strokeable-yet-decadent textures that feel as good as they look.

Below, we've compiled a list of this season's most swoon-worthy textures to get you excited for the biggest social season of the year. Plus, we share our insider style tips to make these tactile fabrics work from morning meetings to mulled wine.


Lace

There's no denying the elegance that lace beholds at Christmas. We love it for its timeless appeal, day-to-night wearability and its power to make us feel like Monica Bellucci.

Reach for enlaced separates in the daytime, pairing them with denim for a casual-chic finish.

And for the annual office party? A little black lace dress couldn't be more perfect, if you tried.


Velvet 

Oozing high-octane glamour, velvet returns in all of its glory to swoop up the 'Best Dressed' award. From lavish office party to Christmas-day brunch, dress the part in this season's most opulent and versatile texture.

For an office-approved velvet look that'll last the test of time, go for tailored styles in timeless hues.

Make velvet work in the weekend by dressing it down with denim.


Sequins

There’s no time like the present to get the party started. Separates and dresses are crystal-encrusted, bead-embellished and sequin-strewn to get you in the mood for the festivities.

Forget high-shine adornment, this season’s offering comes in an understated, matte finish for an updated twist on a Christmas classic.

For the day, opt for sequin-spliced skirts and jumpers for a toned-down spin that’s totally office-appropriate.

Switch it up in the evening, with a decadent dress that’s adorned with a multitude of beads. All finished off with polished heels and a chic clutch.


Leatherette

Make the party season your most sultry one yet in lashings of leather-look hero pieces.

Striking the perfect balance between sultry and too sexy is a fine art that we're more than happy to share with you.

The secret lies in the cut. Our silhouettes are ladylike — knee-grazing skirts and tailored trousers, to name a few — in a sumptuously-smooth faux-leather for a polished look.

Try with  tailored blazers and leather vamp courts to nail desk-to-dinner style like a pro.
