With only two Fridays left until Christmas (when did that happen?), as far as we're concerned, party season is well and truly in motion. We're guessing your diary is going to start filling up pretty quickly with all kinds of festive get-togethers, friends' nights out and, of course, the dreaded/adored work Christmas do. With all this socialising, you're going to need something to wear that'll make you feel a million dollars and have you looking like a super-sparkly dancing queen. At least that's the vibe we're channelling… 'Tis the season, after all. This is where a perfect party dress comes in—one you can pull out of the wardrobe when last-minute plans are made.
Lucky for you, we're about to share our best-kept secret on where to find such a coveted piece. Two words: Miss Selfridge. There's no denying that the high-street store has always been a bit of a winner when it comes to party wear, and with a dedicated dress shop on site, Miss Selfridge has everything from lace to sequins to velvet.
More of a whimsical bohemian girl? Look to the store's beautifully embroidered maxi dresses in dreamy lace fabrics. For us, we think Christmas is a time to go all-out, so we're heading straight for the rainbow sequined dress complete with '70s-style sleeves. Shop the pieces guaranteed to put you in the party mood in our gallery below.
Also worth getting in the red colourway…
Style with a belt and boots for day, and swap out for gold heels in the evening.
Always a good idea to have a backup gown.
The perfect party dress. With rainbow sequins being seen everywhere this season, this is well worth the investment.
A huge bargain, ladies.
Did someone say Dynasty?
For work, for play.
You won't need to add anything other than a smoky eye or a bold lip to this real colour conversation starter.
Also very sweet when worn with tights.
Shower this dress with silver heels, a bold clutch bag and delicate hoops for a sophisticated party look.
Whilst we're talking dresses, you'll want to make sure you have the right underwear to show them off properly—see the best bras out there.
