Christmas is coming! They don’t call it the Festive Season for nothing, mamas, and that means finding plenty of festive frocks for all sorts of parties. Natalie and Gabriella, the sassy fashion duo from The Dualityhave come up with two takes on the perfect outfit for everything from Christmas lunch with the kiddos to a sparkly New Year’s Eve soirée. Throw in the right accessories, and these easy pieces will see you through right into 2015!

NYE Ball / Party

ASOS Wrap Drape Midi Dress, $116.89 (red)
This wrap dress falls in all the right places ladies, making it ideal to dance the night away and not have to worry about VPLs, bulges or slips – nothing is going to fall out of place. Add in some heels that will withstand the night and some lacy undies, then you’ll feel fabulous and ready to kickstart the new year.

Christmas Lunch outfit with the family & kids

Diane Von Furstenberg, Printed Silk Crepe de Chine Dress, $540
A beautifully structured piece to wear well beyond the festive season! DVF knows what mamas want – a simple, albeit highly flattering, dress that suits most body shapes, covering any sagginess around the arm area and draping loosely over the bust and tummy area. It’s a classic print that’s bold enough to make a statement. Ticks all the boxes! This dress is great to wear at Christmas day lunch, whether you’re sitting back in a restaurant, or on your feet at home working hard to feed those hungry mouths!

Christmas cocktail event outfit

Altuzarra For Target, Embroidered Twill Dress, $98
A perfect dress for mamas who want to feel girly, but still adhere to the comforts of the classic LBD! Whether you belt it with or wear it as-is, I love this tailored dress. The satin lapel gives it that level of formality you want at a cocktail, while the detailing on the shoulder is a super easy way to add some playfulness! And it has a very attractive price tag to match! Pairs beautifully with a chunky gold cuff.

NYE Ball / Party

Camilla and Marc Cedar bi-colour dress, $575
Monochrome is elegant and formal and this dress is no exception. The pleated and draped skirt floats beautifully over hips to create a flattering silhouette that is also comfortable enough to dance in for hours! I would pair this dress with pearl earrings and sleek hair for a modern yet classic look.

Xmas Lunch outfit with the family & kids

Diane von Furstenburg Alicia dress, $349
Printed floaty dresses are huge this season, with everyone from Burberry to Topshop creating their own. In a season-appropriate Christmas hue, this festive dress adds some sexiness with a plunging v neckline that is complimented by wide sheer sleeves. If you are slightly concerned about any wardrobe malfunctions, it is easily layered with a camisole or worn with a furry gilet for cold weather for a relaxed and romantic look. I recently invested in a classic DVF wrap dress and can definitely recommend her cuts as feminine, flattering and hugely wearable!

Christmas cocktail event outfit

Bec and Bridge Stone Free Midi Dress, approx $279
Bec and Bridge is an Australian label that creates sexy and chic party dresses for a really good price point. This dress is far from your average LBD with an on-trend midi-length, backless detail and interesting hook and eye feture that can be opened to create a slit at the front if you need to make it a little less restrictive to allow for some dancing! It’s best paired with classic stilettos to let the subtle details of the dress shine.
