If you’ve ever found yourself the night of the office Christmas do or a family event with nothing to wear, you’re not alone. We’re all so busy trying to find the perfect gifts and plan the perfect menus, that it’s easy to forget about what to wear – and the problem with the festive season is that we’ve often spent so much money on gifts for others, that there’s no room left in the budget for ourselves.

Take some time to focus on yourself, we say! Plus, who wants to be wearing some tired old jumper when you’re going to show up in all of those Facebook photos over the festive period? We’ve rounded up some fantastic deals on everything from sparkly eveningwear to cosy jumpers so you’ll look great without having to go broke this December.

Christmas Jumpers

Whether you’re just off to the pub or looking for something fun to wear on Christmas Day, novelty Christmas jumpers are more popular than ever, and it’s easy to find one under £20.

Marks and Spencer are currently offering 30% off selected Christmas jumpers, plus if you spend over £50 you’ll receive free home delivery! Whether you choose a sequinned snowman (on sale for £19.60) for yourself or a cable car jumper (on sale for £8.40 to £9.80) for baby, you can find styles for the entire family.

For plus sizes, head to New Look’s Inspired range and find selected jumpers on sale for £18.50. Their diamante pudding jumper is fun without being over the top, or if you’d rather go the flashy route, their I Love Santa jumper comes with a matching headband, too.

Office Christmas party

Skip sexy looks for this event – you can impress your boss and still look stylish. Look for touches like embellishment, ruching or lovely prints to jazz up a more conservative neckline.

Zalando are 50% off selected partywear, with plenty of appropriate outfits for the office do. This Supertrash jersey dress (on sale for £70) is available in three colours and features flattering, slimming gathers along the waist. Another option I’m loving is the Little Mistress Summer dress in purple lace with three-quarter sleeves. It’s 45% off at just £38.50.

If you’re on a “need to spend under £20” budget, you can find some amazing dresses at George.com. My picks: the floral fit and flare dress in black and white floral (£16) and the embellished neck jacquard dress (£14).

New Year’s Eve

Sparkly, glam and pretty are the boxes to tick when it comes to your New Year’s Eve outfit. Even if you’re staying home, why not wear something special?

If you’re headed to a club, this black sequin playsuit from Miss Selfridge will definitely make you stand out – and it’s on sale for £32.50, plus use our code for free UK standard delivery on all orders. If it’s a more casual night in for you, this green sequin front jumper (£30) is relaxed enough to wear with jeans but still has a bit of bling for counting down til midnight.

Don’t forget new shoes and accessories! Grab our code for 25% off party shoes at Allsole.com and you can save on these amazing Ravel gold metallic courts (£50) or Love Moschino heart sling backs (£57), plus delivery is free over £30.
