Lace Patched Dress - Oasis - £55.00
Black Suede Platforms - River Island - £55.00
Beaded Clutch - Accessorize - £29.00
You can't go wrong with an LBD, especially this gorgeous lace one from Oasis. It's the sort of dress I justify (sometimes too easily!) as it's a classic that can be worn throughout the year and can be dressed up for evenings and become a staple item in your work wardrobe. Platform style shoes with a chunky heel always seem much easier to walk in than a stiletto heel.. especially by the end of the night when you're on the dance floor after a few Prosecco's! A glitzy clutch can really transform your favourite black dress into a party ready outfit and take you straight from the office to the bar. I love the beaded detailing on this one from Accessorize and it looks big enough to hold all your party essentials.
Black Structured Top - Coast - £89.00
Jacquard Skirt - Coast - £129.00
Faux Fur Scarf - Accessorize - £29.00
Bead and Sequin Scatter Dress - Warehouse - £85.00
Metallic Tassle Earrings - New Look - £5.99
Black Asymmetric Clutch - River Island - £18.00
Warehouse is great for party dresses and occasion wear. I love this black dress with metallic beads and sequins. It's not too overly glitzy that you couldn't wear it all year round. I'm not a fan of tight structured dresses that leave you feeling like you can hardly breathe (and require industrial levels of shapewear) but this beaded dress has an elasticated waist meaning you don't have to fear the dreaded post Christmas meal bloat! These cute metallic tassle earrings are a bargain from New Look at just £5.99 and I'm sure I'd wear them throughout the festive season. Keep it simple with a classic black clutch so you don't detract from the detail of the dress.
What will you be wearing this party season?
