Zara's Just Had a Party-Dress Delivery—These 28 Are Worth Your Time

While some fashion trends seem to change like the wind, you simply cannot beat the timeless appeal of a killer party dress. Everyone can remember a moment in their lives when they felt like a million bucks, and more often than not, this memory tends to include a showstopping frock.

Now that we find ourselves in the heart of December, suddenly, that big outfit decision is looking pretty imminent. That's where we come in. We noticed that Zara was looking particularly chic in the party-dress area, and as a necessary public service, we thought we'd do a curated edit of our favourite looks.

While a few trends are featured (such as slip dresses and leopard print), we've purposefully picked dresses that will survive the season and serve you for years to come. Our party-dressing rules? You can't go wrong with sequins and velvet, as they're both classics when it comes to after-dark dressing. Oh, and slinky, calf-grazing slips can also make for a sultry look, which you can then dress down with a knit and boots the day after. We're all about getting the most out of your purchases, after all.

So whether you're shopping for your work holiday party or a NYE soirée or just fancy adding something special to your wardrobe, scroll on to see the best Zara party dresses to shop right now.
