The party season: whether you’re already suffering from anticipatory exhaustion at the thought of all those nights out, or thrilled at the chance of getting your sparkle on, we know that finding the right dress (or dresses!) is a big part of the fun.
So what are the rules for this season’s round of parties? Well, it’s Christmas so why not go all out with an added dose of dazzle? If sequins and sparkle feel a bit too OTT during the rest of the year, we suggest giving in your inner showgirl. Shine in shimmering metallics, seduce in luxe lace, stand out in bold prints and twinkle in a liberal coating of sequins.
As for New Year, love it or hate it, a delicate hint of lace is the chicest choice for those with demure sartorial leanings, but why not see it in in flashy sequins and plenty of mirror ball shine?
To that end, we’ve selected an edit of 12 dresses from Sloane Street’s boutiques that will put you in the mood to party. From show-stopping sparklers by Emilia Wickstead to understated elegance from Teatum Jones, here’s your party season shopping list.
