The Met Ball 2014 is nearly upon us and here at Look HQ we’ve been dreaming about the pretty party dresses we would love to wear to the big event.
Whittling it down to four key frocks, say hi to the go-to high street styles that tick off ultimate Met Gala glamour in a flash.
H&M’s figure fixing green brocade number, £39.99, oozes prom elegance, while the sculptural skirt and pleats keep it pretty and fun. It doubles up as a great wedding guest dress too.
Next up, Topshop’s stunning maxi dress, £58, in firey paprika. Ok, so strictly speaking this dress totally bucks the 2014 Met Ball ‘White Tie and Decorations’ dress code but it is certainly head-turning and that is good enough for us!
Then there’s the pearl-decorated ivory tulip dress, £59, probably the closest to the 2014 dress code theme, it’s a real winner and features a cool pocket detail for added edge.
Finally, Coast’s tropical leaf-adorned mini, £85, is a true investment with the summer holidays just around the corner. Check out the elongating side pattern too, it’s mega flattering.
