Check our Missguided's alternative Christmas ad...

Forget John Lewis… This Is The Only Xmas Ad You Need

It’s that time of year again. You know it’s officially entered the festive season when the Christmas adverts start popping up on our screens.

It goes without saying that the talk of the town – and our social media timelines – has been Monty the penguin. In typical John Lewis form, this little fella has been thawing our hearts and smudging our mascara.

But we’ve been loving an alternative Christmas advert that really embodies our party spirit of this time of year 

Rather than clutching at your childhood teddy and crying, throw on your most sparkly party dress and ‘Ghetto blast your way onto the dance floor’… According to fashion e-tailor Missguided, it’s the only way to celebrate this Christmas. And it sure looks fun!

Showcasing its latest collection of party wear, the store’s ad features a mix of stand-out textures, patterns and colours. And quite fittingly, there’s a lot of sparkle.

You can get ahead of the mid-season rush and shop some of the looks below. Perfect for work Christmas parties, festive nights out, and of course a big New Years Eve celebration, there’s something to suit every style.

We do think this film should come with a warning label, though: please partake in house parties responsibly.

I know I’d rather have a pretty pastel pink pony than a penguin. Just saying.
