5 OF THE BEST COCKTAIL DRESSES

By Nelly Gergi, 7 December 2018

Yep, the party season is officially upon us, but if you've still got that nagging 'no idea what to wear' feeling then fear not. We've pulled together five of our favourite cocktail dresses you’ll want to wear right away (even if it happens to be a Tuesday afternoon). Because what better time is there to be dripping in sequins and glitter if not to the 56 parties you’re attending during the festive months?

Seq-wins everything

All things sparkly are having a moment and we’re so here for it. This party mini just about ticks all the boxes – wear it with heels for cocktails or throw on a pair of chunky trainers for a contrast that is both comfy and so right now. It’s a win-win.

Flower power

A timeless classic, but make it floral. If you’re looking for a mini dress with maximum impact, look no further. Just add a colour-popping lipstick, a metallic clutch and heels and we'll see you on the dancefloor.

Soft as velvet

It's the fabric quite literally giving us all the feels ATM – and, let’s be honest, velvet = festive AF. But you know what’s even more festive? An emerald green velvet dress, so you can walk around looking like a very fancy Christmas bauble.

Midas touch

We’re getting major Bond Girl vibes off this one and if you too have been longing for a bit of 70s disco glam, we’ve got news for you... now is your time. This LGD is here to show it truly ‘tis the season of more is more.

Shine bright

‘That's too many sequins’ – said no one ever. Be the disco ball of the party in this little number. You'll have everyone dancing around you, but, then again, it’s no party if you aren’t there. This rainbow showstopper promises to make one helluva entrance.
