Stand out at your office party
Party dresses will forever be a worthy wardrobe investment. Summer, autumn, winter – there’s no season that doesn’t require a do-it-all party frock, and we’ve rounded-up just a few of our favourite styles to kick start your collection.
The new season trends have dictated the style of party dresses for AW17, with crushed velvet, coloured lace and embellishment all coming together to create what is arguably the best party dress offering yet.
But as hard as the dresses are working, there are other things to factor in to pull together that all-important look. The wrong underwear can ruin that oh-so-right dress. The purchase of a seamless brief, a well-fitted strapless bra and great control undies will ensure you own that party dress you’ve spent the last few weeks searching for.
Now we have that covered, it’s time to search for the dress and ASOS, Topshop and H&M are leading the charge on the high street, or if it’s something a little more expensive that you’re after, why not check out Rosie Assoulin’s new-season drop for something show-stopping?
Black party dresses
When in doubt, a little black dress will see you through any occasion. Opt for a classic fitted black lace design, a slinky silk slip dress or something with a flared skirt.
Sequin party dresses
We understand sequins aren’t for everyone, but there really is an option to suit all personalities out there. If you’re feeling OTT, go for a simple slip dress completely covered in sequins, be it copper, silver, or more muted black. If you’d like something a little more low key, then pick a floaty number with a few scattered pearls on the bodice and skirt.
Lace party dresses
Plus size party dresses
Lots of high street brands from SimplyBe to JD Williams and ASOS have amazing plus size lines on offer, so you’ve got plenty of choice for party season.
Party dresses with sleeves
The emphasis on statement sleeves this season means there are plenty of stylish options about if you’re not keen on showing your arms.
Designer party dresses
Vetements, Christopher Kane, Off-White, Balmain, Peter Pilotto… the designer partywear offering is strong this season, so take your pick. Though we have a slight penchant for Ashish’s Studio 58-style sequin dresses.
