Whether you’re looking for a party-perfect or dinner date outfit, from show-stopper sequins to being suited in colour, you can celebrate in style this festive season at Mailbox.



Shine Bright

Sparkle this season in gold glitter. This sequinned statement, L.K. Bennett £550, pairs perfectly with simple accessories. As the brightest New Years Eve party piece, wear with strappy sandals and a small clutch to really let the dress do the talking.

Flowing in Florals

Printed in a seasonal red, this asymmetric loose fit flows perfectly from dinner to dancefloor. Embellish this Preen Line, £450 Harvey Nichols, dress with gold hoops and court shoes or a pointed chelsea boot and leather jacket to suit any casual or formal celebration.

Dancing Shoes

Whether you’re wearing skinnies, a maxi or mini, a pair of stilettos, Emporio Armani £450, interchange effortlessly with any outfit. Decorated with rhinestones, ankle straps and a mid heel height, they are the perfect dancing shoe.



Tailored and Teal

A twist on a standard suit, this Paul Smith The Soho Suit, £1,045, is fashioned in a dark teal and features a subtle green and red check. Both pieces are easy to mix and match – the slim-fit trousers and lapel-collared blazer separately pair with an array of your existing casual closet items.

The Alternative Brogue

Switch out the classic brown or black smart shoe for a season-appropriate hue – burgundy. Wear these Cheaney Oliver II Brogues, £350 English Brands, with blue jeans and a white oxford shirt for casual outings or add as a slight pop to an otherwise plain suit.

Fitted and Knitted

Stay warm this winter and layer up with a minimalist merino wool turtleneck, BOSS by Hugo Boss £139. Whether you opt for a camel, grey or navy, dress it matching and monochromatic for a smart and clean look. Finish with either a coat or blazer depending on the occasion.
