Zero-effort party dressing

Hunting for presents. Trying to stay warm in Baltic conditions. Whipping up a Christmas feast for the family.

Step forward these zero-effort looks for all those parties you’re invited to (another effort, but an enjoyable one). Standout on their own and easy to style, these pieces are perfect for when you want to skip the hours-of-prepping part and jump right into the having-fun part – win-win in our eyes.

The non-trad velvet dress

Why it's effortless/ The rich fabric and opulent colour give instant impact. Cut in plush black-green velvet with a beautifully pleated asymmetric hem, it’s a modern spin on a festive favourite

How to style it/ Clash with metallic silver boots for a cool, contemporary look, or black slingbacks for ladylike elegance

Mix/Osman velvet drape dress £180, Mix/Osman silver boot £165

The interesting LBD

Why it's effortless/ Because it’s a LBD, aka the epitome of understated elegance. It sometimes has a reputation for being a little dull – but not this one, thanks to those dreamy sheer organza sleeves

How to style it/ With an equally easy pair of faux-fur embellished slides – chic and comfy

Mix/Rejina Pyo organza sleeve dress £180, Mix/AV Robertson fur bead slider £99

The power-print dress

Why it's effortless/ The cut – a silk shirtdress is just about the easiest thing to wear. And the pattern – pink leopard print means you don’t need much more to shine

How to style it/ Go tonal and team with red pumps, and skip the jewellery

Mix/Osman silk leopard shirtdress £175, Mix/Hudson Stacey suede shoe £135

“These pieces are perfect for when you want to skip the hours-of-prepping part and jump right into the having-fun part”

The subtly sparkly top

Why it's effortless/ This sleek top nods to this season’s penchant for sequins, without going overboard. Fancy without being try-hard, it’s perfect if dresses aren’t your thing

How to style it/ With your favourite jeans, but up the ante on your accessories to give your outfit the special factor

Mix/Teatum Jones 3D beading top £90, Mix/Osman side stripe jean £80, Mix/AV Robertson beaded fur clutch £99

The haute tee

Why it's effortless/ This look is for you if you like your party look to be a polished extension of your day look. It’s a tee, but it isn’t any old tee – this one comes with pretty hand-finished embellishment on the shoulder and mesh detailing at the back, so you can take it to a party without fear of looking underdressed (unless it’s a black-tie affair)

How to style it/ Continue the low-key special mood by pairing with staples in luxe fabrics – a leather midi skirt and faux-fur sliders

AV Robertson beaded T-shirt £65, Mix/Lab wrap leather skirt £199, Mix/AV Robertson fur bead slider £99
