9 festive essentials to end the year in style

Let's make 2021 go out with a bang. Here are all your essentials for Christmas, New Year festivities, and everything in between.


Life has been anything but a party for the best part of the last two years, so it’s no wonder why many people are planning to make the most of the merriment during Christmas 2021. However, despite knockout designs hitting the catwalks and the high street clothes rails this season, it’s possible that months of eventless evenings and weekends has resulted in a certain tameness when it comes to dressing to impress.

Fight your instinct to tone it down this December, and instead express your personality with garments that boost your confidence, whether the scenario is an office party or a New Year’s bash at your bestie’s. Take inspiration from the out-out aesthetic of the current Burberry, Loewe and Stella McCartney collections: bold summer colour in winter, head-turning all-in-ones and sequins galore. A season for wallflowers, this is not.

However, this isn’t just a fashion guide - we’ve covered all bases to complement the goings-on of the coming month, from top picks in beauty, to the best tunes for your Spotify playlist, to the ingredients that will secure you the throne as cocktail queen (virgin or otherwise!). Whatever your plans, the Spell team wishes you a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.
