Just add sass...
Thoughts of Studio 54 opulence have been occupying our outfit agendas since December 1st arrived, hailing Christmas party mania. For all the festive fun-times to come this season, we’re taking it back to the high octane, super glamour of the 70s.
If the Seventies conjures cringe, because you’ve seen one too many pics of the ‘rents, donning flares, at the “Abba concert of the century” – Stop. Right. There. We’ve got some true sass coming atcha, by way of disco-ready dresses and jumpsuits that ooze glamour. Just think Bianca Jagger in the VIP, and we’re talking the same language…
We are literally OB-sessed with all things glitter this Christmas, and we aren’t talking about a dusting here, and a sprinkle there – we’re talking about absolutely showering everything in it! From our hair, to our eyelids, smoochers, shoes, bags, dresses… and anything else that can carry the mystical dust, we’re beyond excited to get glittering. The good news? Between our beauty tutorials, gift guides, and party season threads, we’ve got more glitter than you can shake a Christmas tree at. Let’s start with the all-important dress, and if you haven’t got yours yet there’s no need for panic at the disco 'cause we've got your back, girl!
Glitter dress €14

Tapping them trends is something we do best, so get set for sequins, shimmer, and statements. Our one-shouldered mini-dress screams Seventies luxe – just add platforms and your shiniest socks, to be bang-on trend.
And we’d be insane in the membrane if we didn’t call out velvet, far from taking a backseat for Christmastime, it’s basically the designated driver. If you’re super savvy, you’ll grab a matching choker!
Embroidered dress €14
For the disco diva who prefers to let her dance-floor shenanigans take centre stage, subtler sartorial options come through with our sheer and slinky numbers. These form-fitting beauties fit snugly, leaving you to throw some shapes without restriction! All you have to do is choose your finish: embroidery, appliqué, or polka dots?
Sequin mini dress €25
Fashion hosiery from €3
We've also got big love for bodysuits right now, and since fishnets and roller skates might be pushing it a little too far (queue the dad speech), we prescribe a sequin mini skirt for extra statement-making (chill Pops!).
Alternatively, team your fave bodysuit with some leather-look skinnies to save on the sartorial lecturing (and potential outfit-change demands!), so you can get out the door to your Christmas shenanigans on time. Finish the look with some sumptuous fantasy fur for a luxuriant edge, and a cheeky bit of cosiness. Win-win!
Whether you're stepping out in stilettos, skates, or slip-on sneaks, whatever you do, do not leave the house without a touching up your lippy! Everyone who's anyone will be sprucing their beauty regimes with a magical touch this Christmas... yep, we're talking glamming-up with glitter! (And if you're super sassy, you'll get on it with shimmering lids too).
Spot mesh dress €14
Velvet choker dress €14
If there's one thing we know for sure, it's that you're well-equipped for whatever party season throws at you, this Christmas. As ever, we LOVE seeing our babein' Primark fam out in full-force, so whatever festivities you're indulging in don't forget to snap a selfie or capture an #OOTD, for your Primania profile, obvs!
