Party Dresses for the Festive Season
The festive party period is only weeks away, and in preparation, ladies everywhere are flicking through collections of party dresses both online and on the high street in order to find that perfect gown to fit their social calendar.
When the Christmas party season arrives there are certain colours and styles that emerge year-after-year: the little black dress (LBD), metallic shades and sequins and gowns that sparkle are classic ways to introduce glamour to your party look. This year, these old favourites are of course back with vengeance and are joined in the best party wear collections by a trend that gives more than a nod to luxury - jewel shades. Adding a certain sparkle through your choice of dress is a festive failsafe, but now ladies have the option of going all-out and shimmering in a sequinned or bejewelled dress, or drawing on jewel shades such as emerald, ruby and topaz for a more subdued look. Of course, many ladies may opt to combine both regal shades and embellishment to create an outfit fit for a princess.
The opulent colour and surface decoration trends emerging this season allow all women to easily indulge their inner glamour puss, while selecting a dress style that suits their shape and personality. On offer for more formal occasions are tried-and-tested prom-style dresses alongside classic Grecian gowns. For the more daring, imitating the new celebrity penchant for plunging necklines offers the chance to get noticed, though you may want to select a dress that at the very least incorporates a sheer fabric up front in order to protect you from the winter chill. Another bold option is the winter update on the maxi dress; flowing strapless gowns, some complete with daring slashes to the thigh. Once you’ve selected the perfect party dress to make you shine, don’t forget to pick a pair of shoes to match.
