Let me start by saying, if ever there's a time of year to splash out on that night out, it's now! Party season is upon us and it's been a looong year...let's just say you've earned this one.

Whether it's a work Christmas party or a long overdue blow out with friends, now is your chance to go hard or go home. I believe there's no such thing as "too much" at this time of year and I'm prepared to embrace all of the trends.

Here's a little collection of my most coveted festive party ensembles. I hope they point you in the right direction:

The Little Black Dress
If black is your fall back (and for most of Irish ladies, it is) you have to do it in style for party season. I'm loving how this isn't your ordinary LBD, it's got this seasons must have detailing - fringes. You'll be twirling and twisting those tassels all night long! Pick it up from Lavish Alice for €168.

Take the Plunge
While at first glance this may look slightly low cut for that end of year office gathering, the soft romantic fabric, length and layering add a touch of class. This gúna gives the green light to let the hair down (just this once!) You can find it in Sister Jane for €85.

Bring Yo Bling
While you're average sparkly sequinned bodycon has been a regular festive feature year on year, this carefree kimono takes beautiful bling to a whole new and improved level. Easy to wear and full of festive fun, it's definitely on my list this year. Find it in Zara for €129.
