3 ways to wear party dresses

Think the season of sparkle is over? Girls, think again. It’s time to FINALLY take off the Christmas jumpers and ditch the pyjamas you didn’t ask for, so you can start shopping for the biggest night of 2018: New Year’s Eve. There’s no need to worry if you’re suffering from Christmas shopping fatigue or if you can’t face the Boxing Day Sales, we’ve narrowed down the three hottest ways to dress for the all-important event. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it – right? A dress is the staple piece of any fashionista’s wardrobe and this year it’s all about shimmer, print and LBD’s. Make dressing to impress your New Year’s resolution; that’s one we know you won’t break.

Shimmer and shine


Nothing says party season quite like a bit of glitter and this year we’re really feeling it. Sequins and sparkle are the must-have trend this season and this Metallic Smock Dress will make sure you twinkle your way to 2019 in style. The flattering pleats and fun metallic design will be the envy of all the party. Pair with killer heels and a silver clutch for extra glamour. Add a bit of New Year spirit and don’t let anyone dull your sparkle!

Serious Cattitude


2018 is the year of the animal print and this doesn’t need to change in 2019. After all, a leopard never changes its spots. What better way to celebrate the festivities than dressing in the year’s hottest trend? Make a statement and wear the Hanky Hem Leopard Print Dress. With a flattering shape and asymmetric hemline, this dress is purr-fect for dancing ‘til you drop. Take a walk on the wild side and finish the look with a pair of black heels.

Little Bit (of) Detail


Want a dress that you can definitely wear again? Opt for an LBD this New Year’s Eve for instant style that you can dress up or down depending on the night you have planned. Choose the Embellished Floral Lace Bodycon Dress for stand out chic and versatility, so you’ll look just as good this year as you do the next. With sheer sleeves and a lace trim, this dress has the feminine touches and pretty detailing you want from every outfit. For head-to-toe glam, team with a faux fur jacket…and maybe stay away from fireworks!
