Get your glad rags on!

Party season will soon be upon us, and many of us are searching for that perfect dress to wow the crowds with. Browsing online, there are so many outfits to choose from – long dresses, short dresses, glittery and colourful. It can be difficult to know where to start! So, I’ve done a bit of research and picked some of my favourites – perhaps you’ll spot a favourite too, or just enjoy browsing some clothing sites, imagining up your dream wish list.

In the montage above are dresses from a range of shops, beginning with the Coast Cher Dress at £150. I’m on the lookout for a little black dress and I love that this one is slightly more unusual, with the long sleeves and frilly trims. Under this is an Embellished Bodice Tutu, £65, from Miss Selfridge. This makes me feel so Christmassy, being silver and a bit sparkly – you can’t beat a bit of sparkle at Christmas! The centre photo shows a gorgeous red Lace Mini Dress, £25, from ASOS. I’m loving the lace trend this season, and this colour will really stand out at any party you wear it to. Top right is a more unusual Green Aztec Sequin Bodycon Dress, £45, from River Island. Again, anything a bit sparkly always stands out for me, and the Aztec pattern adds to the uniqueness of this little number. Lastly, is a Maxi Dress from New Look, priced at a very reasonable £32.99. I know not everyone always wants to wear a short dress, but this year there do seem to be a lot of longer dresses available, which look just as dazzling. This dress is fairly simple, with a bit of sparkly embellishment under the bust.

This second montage showcases some slightly more expensive outfit choices, if you’re thinking of treating yourself to something extra special. Top left is a striking blue VIP Maxi Dress, £140, from Lipsy at ASOS. The glittery embellishment at the top will make you sparkle like a star, while the slit down the side gives it a slightly seductive feel. Under this dress is a Rivi Dress, £95, from one of my favourite shops for dresses, Coast. This isn’t your typical party dress, but I really like the colours and pattern, which would perhaps make this outfit a bit more flexible to wear for different occasions. In the centre is another offering from Lipsy – a Lace Sequin Bodycon Dress, £48. Combining both sequins and lace, I think this simple yet effective dress is stunning. Bottom left is a floor length Desire Sequin gown from Coast, which wouldn’t look out of place on the red carpet. It does have a rather hefty price tag of £550, but it really does look beautiful. And finally, for my pick of the party dresses, is another Coast number – the Jac Dress, £195. I’ve been looking for the right white dress for ages, and think that I might have found it here! I particularly love the flower detail on the waistband.

Have you found your party season outfit yet, or are you still on the look out?
