The Edit: Partywear Essentials for the Festive Season
The glamorous parties and events that come with the end-of-year festive season calls for show-stopping looks that loudly say that celebrations are well and truly back in full force. After a low-key fashion year, the time is right for a reentry into the Christmas gatherings and New Year’s Eve parties that we are used to.
For those who are not wallflowers, the new collections from fashion brands from Africa and the diaspora have delivered statement dresses and chic accessories that stand out for all the right reasons.
Below, we’ve curated an edit of the key pieces that will stylishly see you through the celebrations of the festive season.
The best way to achieve an effortless party look is by choosing a single piece to build your outfit around: a chic dress. In this area, contemporary Nigerian brand Fruché has you covered. The Agiliga Cocktail Dress is imbued with a sense of glamor that is perfect for after-dark events, thanks to its side cutouts and playful knots and dramatic asymmetric hem. The Onyisi Camel Dress is similarly designed, also with knot details and shoulder cutouts for a sultry look that will make a grand, stylish entrance at any party.
