Our qualifications for party outfits this year is relatively simple: It needs to be easy to wear, comfortable, look the part and have a little hint of luxury. Well, & Other Stories (who else?) has only gone and hit the nail on the head with a cute velvet minidress that has already sold out once, but is now back in stock. Championing by countless fashion-lovers, including Laura Jackson, we can certainly see why it's flown off the digital shelves.
With a flattering A-line silhouette, retro ruffled neckline and stay-warm long sleeves, it's the sort of dress that will look amazing just with opaque tights and flats. Very Alexa Chung. It's far more appealing than any awkward, form-fitting, off-the-shoulder number, and let's face it—our party looks have to be sofa and Zoom-ready, so practicality is key. Trust us when we say that this is going to be a throw-on party dress that you'll happily wear this season then love for many years to come. Don't believe us?
