Who doesn't love shopping for a party dress? It probably goes back to that velvet party dress you had when you were five that you weren't allowed to wear until the day of the party, despite the days spent begging your mum and promising not to spill anything on it/climb trees in/ride your bike in. We never won that argument with mum, but the illusive party dress still has the power to excite and make you feel amazing.
I've been looking to ASOS for my party wear needs and have found some corkers. So whether you want to 'wow' at the office Christmas party, you're one of 'those' who dresses up on Christmas day while everyone else is in a dressing gown, or you, like me, have about eight different parties throughout December and really need to start thinking about sequins, sparkle and glitz.
The French Connection number above, complete with a large, sparkly bow, is every little girls fantasy party dress, so I couldn't resist adding it to the wishlist. It may be pricey at £180 but it's bloody brilliant! And never be afraid of colour with a Christmas party frock. I love this kimono dress in brilliant blue, and the shape will be really flattering if you've overindulged on Christmas sandwiches. In November (just me?).
Dresses not your bag? Then a jumpsuit has your name all over it! Long or short, a stylish jumpsuit or playsuit will look awesome on the dance floor and is practical if you have to leg it from the office pervert. Win win.
