Emirates Woman Jade party ed picks

Four insiders, four very different dress codes. Welcome to the festive wardrobes of Team Emirates Woman. Here’s our guide on how to dress for the party season…

Full Swing

Jade Sprowson, Style Director

My party trick is wearing something that will get the conversation started, whether that’s a smattering of kaleidoscopic jewels, layers of frothy tulle or dance floor heels in look-at-me shades. I always save elegance for the red carpet and inject a large amount of playfulness into party time!

Rainbow Brite

Olivia Phillips, Fashion Features Editor


Aside from a brief episode in my early teens that involved Camden market, inflatable clothing and more glo-sticks than you could shake a, er, glo-stick at, I spent my youth overflowing with faux-angst and wearing predominantly black. Fast forward… ahem… a few years and I have embraced precisely the opposite. Sod the subtlety, you’ll find me on the dance floor gleaming like an obnoxious traffic light and not caring one little bit.

Girly Glam

Alexandra Venison, Junior Fashion Editor


I’m a romantic girl at heart. My favourite colour is pink and I’m partial to anything floaty, ruffled or vaguely ethereal – these winged Sophia Webster heels are the perfect example. To avoid Barbie overkill, though, I tend to opt for more tailored pieces souped-up with chunky accessories for a fashion-girl edge.

The New Boho

Carmel Gill, Fashion and Beauty Assistant


My party style is a real blend of ethnic, hippie and rock-chic influences, meaning I worship at the Emilio Pucci’s geometric temple. I’ve elevated its printed woollen dress for evening by adding a glittering Saint Laurent bag and killer Gianvito Rossi heels, mixing and matching to my heart’s content. My motto is if you love it, wear it – throw the rulebook out of the window!
