Black party dresses

Everyone knows you can’t go wrong with a black party dress. Whether you’re a minimalist or not, a black party dress is the sort of party dress you can style to suit literally every event. Choose a mini length and dress up with strappy stilettos and clutch bag for a girl’s night out, or go for a long sleeved midi version and choose court shoes for after-work drinks.

Sequin party dresses

If you thought sequin party dresses were just for Christmas, you can think again. You might feel OTT, but just make sure you choose your sequin type according to the time of year and occasion. Stick to black, heavy designs in autumn/winter, and switch for brighter, more delicate creations come spring/summer.
