I hate to say it, but Christmas is just around the corner. You know what that means – nope, I’m not talking about Christmas shopping – it’s time to start looking for party dresses!

This season it’s time to add a dose of glamour. The more extravagant, the better I say.

After being locked up during Christmas in 2020, I’m so excited to get out there and celebrate with my friends and family.

This year, I’m not holding back – and from what I can tell, a lot of you feel the same.

Extravagant fashion is also one of the seasons biggest trends. After the two years we’ve all faced, it’s the least we can do to cheer ourselves up.

Autumn winter is shaping up to be the most colourful seasons of the year — something you’d expect for summer and spring. But we’re veering away from fashion norms these days and embracing bold and vibrant hues, patterns, textures, and more experimental cuts.

Take this as an opportunity to dress up even more than you usually do during the holidays — I know I will.

If you’re like me and have’nt dressed up for a proper party since the pandemic started, looking for the best party dresses may be a bit challenging – but only because we’re incredibly spoilt for choice.

We have one of the best party dress selections this year, no kidding! That includes from both designer labels and our favourite go-to high street stores, offering options for every budget.

Rixo has a fun take on the little black dress. The Candice Confetti dress is perfect when you want to shine (literally) but keep it streamlined and classy.

For an inexpensive option, Zara’s always there to help us. The holidays and velvet just go so well together, and the velvet dress with cutouts and rhinestones from Zara is the perfect example of that.

Want more of the best party dresses to wear during the holidays (and to be honest, anytime else you want)? Here are my top picks.
