Christmas is a season to celebrate with friends, family and colleagues. Parties are a common occurrence at this time of year, which means you’ll need to find the perfect party dress. We have some great tips and dresses you’ll love to wear all party season.

Sparkly dress

Christmas isn’t complete without a sequin dress; you’ll sparkle under the Christmas tree lights and look fabulous at any Christmas party. There are many options when choosing a sequin dress; black is classic if you want to sparkle but also keep things understated. If you want to draw attention, choose a brighter, bolder colour, such as red or green. These are classic Christmas colours that will get you in the party spirit. You could wear a full sequin dress for maximum effect or choose a dress with a sequin body and luxurious material for the rest of the dress. Sequins are made from plastic, so this isn’t the most environmentally friendly form of party dress. Alternatively, you could search for an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic sequins. If you’re choosing a sequin dress, make sure you get something you can keep in your wardrobe and wear for many years to come.

Little black dress

The little black dress is a classic staple wardrobe piece that’s perfect for a range of occasions. When choosing a black dress, think about the occasion and how formally you need to dress. A little black dress with sparkly embellishments is ideal for a Christmas party. Your accessories are just as important when you’re choosing a little black dress. A pair of sparkly heels and a matching handbag will take this look to the next level. You can also add a wrap to cover your shoulders and add an extra element to your outfit. A shoulder wrap is great for the start of the evening when the party is getting started; you can then remove it once you get into the Christmas party spirit.

The cut-out dress

Cut-out dresses can look great all year round, especially when you live in a hot climate. The carefully designed cut-out panels create a look that’s interesting and unique. Often cut-out dresses are designed to show the most flattering parts of your body, creating a sexy yet sophisticated party look. The cut-out panels draw the eye to this part of your body, perfect if you’re looking for an edgier look this party season. For Christmas, choose black, gold, red or green. If you want to be more conservative, look for cut-out designer dresses that are full-length rather than mid-length or mini dresses. These cut-out dresses are more suited to formal occasions such as an office Christmas party.

Patterned dress

If you choose the right pattern, you can wear it throughout the Christmas season. Animal prints work well at Christmas, or you could purchase a dress with a Christmas pattern. You might get little use out of it the rest of the year, but you can wear it each Christmas throughout December. When wearing a bold patterned dress, choose plain shoes and accessories. Your dress should be the main focus of your outfit; adding other patterned elements could make your outfit look cluttered.

Slit dress

The slit dress is another sexy yet sophisticated party dress choice. Invest in a long dress that comes down to your ankles or to the floor with a slit that reaches your thighs. Satin is a great material for a slit dress at Christmas; you can buy satin slit dresses in a range of colours; dark blue, red, green and black will all look great when you’re partying late into the night over the Christmas period. The sleek elegance of a satin slip dress with a slit means it needs very few accessories. Go understated with your heels and jewellery to create a sophisticated, elegant and sexy Christmas party outfit.
Finding a dress for your next Christmas party doesn’t need to be a challenge. Firstly take a look in your wardrobe; you might have an option that you completely forgot about owning. If you’re looking for a new dress, choose something that’s high quality and will last for several years rather than a fast-fashion alternative.
