With Christmas on its way and all those festive family events in the pipeline, we decided it’d be the perfect time to run our Children’s Partywear Style Challenge – and now we have a winner.
We asked some of the web’s best family bloggers to take part in our seasonal challenge, and we can’t wait to share the amazing results with you.
Our bloggers each had £50 to spend on the perfect partywear outfit for their little ones, and we think you’ll be very impressed with the wide array of smart and adorable ensembles they created with their budget.
Let’s take a look at just some of the wonderful entries that were in the running to win a huge £200 of F&F vouchers:
We think this look, put together by Charlotte, The Crumby Mummy, is absolutely stunning. We love the faux fur coat with the pale pink dress.

Partywear can be warm and cosy: Adele from Circus Queen created a beautifully coordinated and wonderfully festive look with a party skirt, thermals, and a cosy jumper.

Northern Mum Jane did a fantastic job – what a beautiful photo of BB. We hope she enjoys wearing her new dress to all those parties, and manages not to spill gravy down it on Christmas Day.

Dawnie from Knees up Mother Brown – we think your little ones look wonderful. We especially love the way you’ve incorporated plenty of sparkle in MissB’s look, and coordinated the burgundy and navy colour schemes for MasterB’s outfit.

As tough as it was to come to a decision, there could only be one winner. So, we’d like to reveal the very stylish (and extremely cute) duo that stole our hearts.
We are thrilled to announce that Lisa from HollyBobbs created the winning looks, using her £50 F&F voucher to put together two absolutely stunning outfits for her son and daughter.
For H, Lisa chose our beautiful Rose Jacquard Party Dress with Belt, £10 – £12, our sweet metallic and Lace Overlay Pumps, £8 – £9, and to top it off, our adorable Rose Garland Headband, £6. The result is a magical mix of subtle colours and luxurious textures, with a lovely floral theme running throughout. This look is not only perfect for the festive season, it’d also be fantastic for a bridesmaid. In fact, we think this look is ideal for any special event throughout the year.
For J, Lisa picked our Bow Tie Long Sleeve Shirt, £13 – £15, to create a dapper look. We love her addition of the Coloured Stitching Slim Fit Jeans, £8 – £9, to give the outfit a casual edge. But the choice that really brings the whole outfit together in our opinion is the Tweed Flat Cap, £4, which picks up on the gentlemanly look of the bowtie and gives the whole look a stylish finish that’ll guarantee he stands out in a crowd.
Congratulations Lisa, H and J!
