Can you hear it in the air?

It’s the sound of music, sparkles, and champagne mixed together, and can only me one thing; it’s party season.

There is no better time to get dressed up than over the festive period, with a good excuse to go all out with sumptuous textures and details, glitter and gold, and a whole lot of fun.

You may think Christmas seems like ages away, but there’s only a couple of paydays to go, meaning now’s the savvy time to get shopping.

In the weeks to come, there will be a mad rush to the shops and the most beautiful pieces will be snapped up in no time at all.

That’s why we’ve put together a list of the 11 best party pieces to buy now to get you prepped for any event.

Our top picks this season include Zara’s waxed straight leg jeans, which would look equally as good with a knit and trainers during the day.

Meanwhile, River Island’s black bandeau jumpsuit is a showstopper. A mix of structure and flounce, it will move with the body and flattering black is always a good idea.

Wear with platform heels and chandelier earrings for maximum effect.

Now, someone pass the Prosecco.
