This year, cocktail frocks and heels are out in favour of fancy pyjamas, velvet slippers and sparkly knits
In any normal year the festive season is the dressiest period of the calendar. But in a party season with no parties, what becomes of the party dress?
With festivities curtailed by coronavirus restrictions and many families choosing not to risk gathering, and with bars and restaurants closed in many areas, this year’s new year celebrations will be small-scale and home-based. As a result, the LBD has been replaced by a new dress code: kitchen disco dressing. Cocktail frocks, tailoring and heels are out and fancy pyjamas, velvet slippers and sparkly knitwear are in.
