It's party season and everyone's looking for that statement outfit that doesn't break the bank. Leave last season's dresses behind and celebrate the season with one of these high street looks that are guaranteed to catch your eye.
Holiday parties are filled with women in their go-to party dress. Instead of reaching for your standard LBD, look for something with a bit more personality like this starry-night inspired dress £85 (left) or this dark rainbow lurex look £80 (right) which pairs a feminine shape with an unusual print, both from Topshop.
Pretty and Girlish
Make it Long
Just because it’s long doesn’t mean it has to be super dressy. Jumpsuits are often the best canvas for accessorizing. Pair this satin-trimmed jumpsuit from Reiss £179 (left) with a statement necklace and bold coloured shoe for night or go the opposite way with this rhinestone embellished suit from Topshop £175 (right) and pair it with a simple cardigan and flats for a more casual affair.
Metallics are standard in any holiday party but try to find a look that’s a bit out of the ordinary. This long-sleeved sequin dress from Miss Selfridge £150 (left) features an unexpected ombre dip-dye effect at the hem and for a completely different take on metallics, opt for this dress with a bronze, banded hem from River Island £35 (right).
Off the Shoulder
It may be getting colder outside but that doesn’t mean you can’t show a little skin. Instead of the standard strapless dress, look for one that sits off the shoulder. For added glitz, opt for this big sequin covered look from Topshop £125 (left) or if you’re looking for something more femimine opt for this teal chiffon version from Miss Selfridge £39 (right).
