I’ve Assembled 6 Expensive-Looking Party Outfits Entirely From M&S

We’re nearing the end of 2022, which means our calendars are filling up with Christmas bashes, candlelit get-togethers and festive dinner parties. Pass the mulled wine, please.

I don’t know about you, but I consider partywear to be one of the most exciting sartorial categories. It’s always nice to depart from one’s everyday uniform (for me, it’s jeans and a jumper) to get a little more dressed up. That being said, I’m reluctant to spend a lot of money on going-out attire; I prefer to invest in items I’ll wear regularly, and I always keep to a strict budget on the partywear front to ensure I don’t overspend or waste money.

This is what led me to Marks and Spencer‘s website, where I was pleasantly surprised by the wealth of sequin-clad pieces on offer—and all at an affordable price. Whatever the dress code for your next do, with a quick scroll of the site, you’ll soon be suitably decked out in sparkle, shimmer and sumptuous evening fabrics. From super-soft velvet to luxurious silk, the beloved high-street brand is embracing all things glitzy and glamorous this party season.

As I scrolled through the pages and pages of partywear, I realised it would be easy to create a standout evening look without having to leave M&S’s site. So naturally, that’s exactly what I did—in fact, I was having so much fun that I decided to keep going. Take a look down below at six ready-made outfits that are perfect for the upcoming festivities.
