There’s no season like party season! However, whether it’s a 1920s-style soiree or a cosy condo barbecue you’re attending, the question always remains: what to wear? Below you’ll find a selection of bold statement party dresses in Singapore, smart-casual evening wear, plus cocktail dresses and dazzling party accessories to help you dress to impress.
Parisian chic evening wear and party dresses in Singapore
Who doesn’t love Christmas in the city of love? Imagine taking a twirl under the sparkling Eiffel Tower dressed in Juliette C’s newest collection, Parisian Night. Here, cocktail dresses and separates evoke the effortless chic of women in the French capital. Subtle creams soften the boldness of gold tones. Meanwhile, the silhouettes are seductive, sleek and stylish, and the fabric is luxurious – a fluid silk that gracefully enhances the feminine form. You can mix and match the collection with Juliette C’s other signature pieces, like the reversible bomber jacket, staple tops or the new wide-leg pants for impeccable comfort and style. Grab a cute clutch and a pair of shimmering heels, and you’re ready to party the night away.

Bewitched and bedazzled by these statement party accessories
No holiday ensemble is complete without some equally charming party accessories to match! And the newest collection from Lustre Jewellery will have you twinkling brighter than Christmas lights! Drawing inspiration from points of a compass, the Cardinal collection features four handcrafted sets of cocktail rings and earrings. The wisdom and knowledge of the north are captured in the calming hues of amazonite adorned with turquoise stones, while south’s passion and warmth are found in sultry red rubies set with rare pearls. Gorgeous green onyx symbolises the east’s new beginnings and takes centre stage, complemented beautifully by tiny lapis lazuli stones. Finally, the west’s adventurous spirit is reflected in lemon quartz and shimmering hues of gold. Don these gorgeous sets individually – or stack the rings together for an elevated touch of glamour!
