We’re gearing towards the most festive time of the year and since it seems to start earlier and earlier each year, it is a good idea to get a bit organised in advance. This includes sorting your drop dead gorgeous party outfit and what better way to make a splash than with a stunning party dress.
Happily the shops are starting to become filled with them and we’re pretty much spoiled for choice! To help you to pick that perfect party dress we’ve come up for a few suggestions here to help make your shopping that little bit easier.
Sparkle to the max
Christmas is the time of the year when you can really go a bit over the top if you feel like it, so why not embrace a bit of glitter and sparkle by wearing an eye-catching dress. From sequins to glitter, shimmer and beads, there are some gorgeous textile effects out there that will have you looking fabulous.
Nothing is quite as ostentatious in an undoubtedly stylish way than all over sequins, so that’s why we love this quirky mini dress. With a high neck and mesh design, the pink (which is basically the hottest colour right now, rose gold) sequins will look great when you’re out partying. Plus since the criss-crosses are in black, you can really easily match your accessories.
If you want a frock that screams old-school Hollywood glamour, then you should choose a full length design hat is both elegant and classic. Don’t think that this has to be a dull and safe option though; there are many stunning full length dress styles out there that will mean all eyes are on you when you enter the room.
This Ted Baker maxi dress with a chain detail strap and in a funky citrus colour shows just how cool long dresses can be. Modern, sleek and easy to wear, what more could you want?! Team it with some strappy metallic sandals and some of the huge chandelier earrings that are all the rage this season for a show-stopping look.
Soft as Velvet
We’ve mentioned before how velvet is back this season and since it is such a luxurious and soft looking fabric, it lends itself perfectly to creating lovely winter party dresses that are not only super comfortable but which are bang on trend too.
This bodycon style dress in midnight blue velvet from River Island is a runaway winner in the style stakes. With a gorgeous and huge ruffle running down one side, this dress is going to be a classic in your wardrobe for all kinds of events. The colour will look great on most skin tones and you’ll enjoy the feeling of instant glamour every time you put it on.
The Little Black Dress
We simply can’t overlook the style staple that is the little black dress and it’s true that it will always come in handy when you need to dress up in a pinch.
When you pick a long-sleeved wrap style dress as your LBD, then you are making a great investment. Completely timeless and at home in all manner of events and occasions, it is also a really flattering style that will make the most of your figure. Check it out at Topshop to treat yourself to a style classic.
