Merry Friendsmas: Outfit Ideas For Your Festive Celebrations With Friends

After we spent last Christmas celebrating the festive season with our immediate families due to restrictions, this year we’re ready to be merry with our besties. According to our latest research, 21% of the Irish public are most looking forward to catching up with friends this Christmas, with 85% saying time with friends is most important. That’s why we’ve renamed Christmas 2021, Friendsmas!

If you have plans to go ‘out out’ with your friends, whether it’s resuming old festive traditions like 80% of those surveyed, you’ll need an outfit that’s all about the glitz, glam and sparkle of the most wonderful time of the year. And if you’ve got a One4all Gift Card in your wallet, finding your perfect glittery ensemble is an exciting task, thanks to the fabulous range of choice at River Island, H&M, New Look and many more of our fashion retail partners.

River Island have dresses, jumpsuits and two-piece sets that go big on sequins, a festive season staple. H&M’s party wear is all about colourful and printed pieces in timeless silhouettes, perfect for those whose approach to festive dressing doesn’t evolve around glitter balls. New Look have some beautiful pieces in another festive season favourite, velvet, helping you bring luxury and richness to your style.
