I hate to say the C word (I really don’t actually), but Christmas is coming, and with that comes Christmas parties! I love an excuse to get dressed up all fancy, and find perfect party dresses. Sparkles, velvet, glamour, I love it all. Whether it’s a work night out, or because your family go all out on Christmas day, here are some of my top picks for party dresses this winter.
The first dress I just had to include is the Kylie dress from Plus Equals. It is absolute sequin perfection! It retails for £85 and is available in up to a 42 in 7 different colours. I feel like if I buy this dress I’ll treat it like Pokemon and have to collect them all!
Mustard is one of this season’s hottest colours, and velvet is a major trend, this combines them gorgeously! The Simply Be By Night Long Sleeve Ruched Velour Dress is a bargain for £25. This is the perfect way to show off your curves and wear the softest fabric around.
ASOS have the slinkiest of high glamour nailed with the Club L Plus All Over Glitter Maxi Dress. If you have a ball, or a really fancy event to attend, you cannot get more showstopping than this rose gold dream.
A Little Black Dress is a classic for good reason, and this black sequin dress from Yours Clothing is lovely. The sequins dress it up, and I can just see the floaty chiffon skirt section twirling on the dance floor.
If something vintage inspired is more your taste, you cannot go wrong with a Lyra dress from Lady V London. I know I speak for not just myself, but several of the other writers here at SMB, but the Lyra is one of the best dresses out there. You will get compliments galore in a Lyra, and they are super comfy to boot. They release them in all different colours and patterns throughout the year in both long and short sleeve styles.
And finally, I have to end on this ASOS Curve bandage dress because well, just look at it. As soon as I saw it in the ‘new in’ section I thought ‘damn’. The fishtail style is something you don’t see very often and this is guaranteed to turn heads!
My family always dress up on Christmas day, so I always treat myself to a new dress that I wear for the first time on Christmas day, maybe one of these will end up being mine!
