Festive red or classic black – your favourite Christmas party dresses this season would come in two key colours. Which will you choose?
Red doesn’t have to be attention-seeking; this sumptuous mulled wine-red velvet dress is a masterclass in understated cool. If you do want to stand out, however, origami-fold satin looks glossy and sophisticated, while a bodycon cut and sheer panels are super flattering. This laser-cut out dress offers a slightly more relaxed silhouette and looks gorgeous with quirky metallic accessories.

The obvious choice isn’t always the most interesting, so this weekend reach for a cocktail blouse instead of your go-to dress. Team with sleek faux leather leggings for added polish.
When it comes to experimenting with textures for a big night out, more is always more, so try clashing a metallic skirt with a furry shoulder bag.
Be the last one standing on the dance floor in a pair of low block heels. Balance their practicality with a scene-stealing party dress in a rich floral jacquard.
A timeless classic it may be, little black dress are anything but ordinary. An embroidered mesh dress flatters every shape, while this on-trend velvet and mesh maxi dress gives a beautiful, lean silhouette thanks to its longer length. Alternatively, keep it demure in Karen Millen’s spot sleeve mini dress with its beautiful polka dot detailing or rock a festive embellished look in this glittering floral lace dress.
