Other than deciding which Quality Street sweet is your favourite (green triangle, every time), the toughest choice you have to make during the festive season is what kind of party dress to buy for either a Christmassy party, or even for NYE. These days, pretty much everything goes, from festive favourite sequin minis to satin slips, high neck brocade and plush velvet numbers.

If in doubt, you can never go wrong with a LBD, but this festive season it’s all about the details, so look for lace panels, thigh splits and layers of ruffles to give the classic evening staple a 2017 update. Fabric-wise, there's the usual brocade, velvet and winter florals this season, but if you fancy taking your festive style up a notch, try something a bit more unusual like bold jewel tones or dare I say it, mesh.

This was my go-to number for this years Christmas party; a lace body-con dress from New Look! Classic, timeless and to top it off, a bloody bargain!


Whatever your budget - whether you go all out or instead opt for a high street dress that you won't cry over if you spill some mulled wine down - whatever your body shape and whether you love sequins or hate them, I've selected some of my favourite party dresses for the festive season. Hopefully you'll find something you love!
