Perfect Party Dress Quest

It’s that time of the year where there are lots of parties, events and family gatherings where you want to look your best and wear something glamorous. I'm sure a lot of you are experiencing "What do I wear to the Christmas party?"dread, but fear not! There are some cracking dresses on the high street at the moment and I have selected my favourites for all your festive party needs.

Every girl should own a LBD, you can’t go wrong with classic black. For a bit of a spin on the classic bodycon  you could try the Silence + Noise Faux Leather Dress from Urban Outfitters. I think this would look great with some spike detail jewellery and a dark, vampish coloured lipstick.
The Dark Green chiffon and lace dress from New Look is less dressy and would be great for Christmas day with the family or you could wear this work work and pop some heels on with it for post work festive drinks.
The AX Paris Sequin crochet waist dress is another twist on the classic LDB with a bit of added Christmas sparkle.

If you’re feeling a bit more daring and want to splash on some some colour or pattern you could go for the Leopard print wrap dress from Miss Selfridge or the Sequin dress from boohoo.com. The leopard print dress is my personal favourite from all of my picks, I'm obsessed with leopard print and would wear this all year round. Finally, the Black lace sleeve dress from Dorothy Perkins was too pretty to leave off my list. I love the delicate lace on the sleeves and the sparkly detail on the waist.

Have you spotted the perfect party dress yet or is it still way too early for you to be thinking about Christmas and the party season?
