It’s the season of the party dress – but which style is going to work for you and your big festive bash? We discovered that Miss Selfridge has the ultimate collection of on-point going out dresses – and we’re confident that your dream dress is among them…
A work Christmas party calls for a certain level of chic that strikes the balance between party and professional and a midi dress ticks all the boxes; they’re elegant, classic, and super flattering. A figure hugging fit in a midi length is sultry, but not OTT sexy, and there’s a style for every body shape. Swapping your courts for barely there strappy sandals will transform your look instantly – from desk to dancefloor!
A prom style dress is always super-flattering, and gives amazing waist definition (even after that office team meal!). They’re a more feminine, classic take on the midi dress, so keep it edgy with a messy ‘do and a smoky eye.
Girls’ Night Out
Nothing beats a night out with the girls, and getting ready is half the fun, right? Bodycon is still one of the season’s hottest party dresses; and we’re loving the Miss Selfridge edit, featuring bardot necklines, off the shoulder detailing, high necks and cool cut-outs. The 90s trend is also referenced with spaghetti straps, cowl necks, and slinky fabric – and don’t forget to accessorise! We’re obsessed with faux fur stoles to layer up your look, and a fistful of sparkly rings will be the envy of all your BFFs…
On the big day, embrace the festive atmosphere, but don’t forget the feast that lays ahead – this might be a good time to rest your bodycon numbers!
If your family style is a little more relaxed, upgrade your fave day dress by layering a colour block roll neck or an embellished bell sleeve blouse underneath. However, if only the best is good enough, a little black dress is always the answer. A swing style is cute, easy to wear, and forgiving after your second helping of Christmas pudding! Make your xmas day #ootd even more special with interesting detailing – a lace overlay updates a more relaxed shape, and a long line necklace will add some festive sparkle.
New Years Eve
For the biggest night of the year, it’s got to be all out red carpet style glitz. Opt for a sequined dress with lashings of embellishment, with detailing and beading that will get you showered in compliments and sparkling on the dancefloor all night long! Shorter dresses gives opulence a modern edge, but c’mon – a maxi is the only option for out and out glamour! Throw on one of these beauties and see in the new year in serious style.
