Champagne season is upon us, and while I still can’t believe how quickly this year has flown, I’m excited to celebrate what a fabulous year it’s been.
Of course, as always, I love finding inspiration for my seasonal outfits online, and for party season I’m at it again. So, I spent a lot of my weekend on the beautiful online store Farfetch. A fashionista’s paradise, Farfetch has incredible fashion forward trends from the likes of Saint Laurent, Lanvin, Oscar de la Renta and Stella McCartney.
Like me, Farfetch is also getting into the magic of the champagne season, and they’ve created a beautiful edit for prime party time, perfectly named Cocktails in Wonderland. They’ve ditched predictable party wear, and replaced it with a wonderland of enchanted escapes, frill fantasies and gothic glamour. Think frou frou dresses, organza frocks, and embellished ball gowns, tied together with blush pinks, glitzy gold and midnight black. Hello heaven, and the ultimate inspiration/shopping destination!
As I’m splitting my time between the UK and Australia in December and January, I’ll need both winter and summer party outfits (queue my boyfriend’s eye rolling!). So, I’ve teamed up with Farfetch to create enviable outfit inspiration for Melbourne and London, as well as Paris, Dubai and New York.
If you’re travelling in the next few months, this is your ultimate cocktail party outfit inspiration for the fashion capitals of the world.
Embrace the summer weather by working lighter colours. Don’t forget to Melbourne-it-up with a sleek touch of black.
