Thanksgiving is just around the corner, which means that Christmas and Hanukah are nearly here too. This year, has just flown by, but, I always look forward to the winter parties these events inspire everyone to host. They give you the opportunity to catch up with family and friends and dress up in something really special.
Looking at fashionworld.co.uk and other fashion clothing websites it is clear that the retailers are ready for the party season. Most are already stocking hundreds of party dresses and accessories. It is great to see some different trends emerging. As you all know I like to experiment, so now is a great time for me to be going shopping for party clothes. Here is just a taste of what is available, this year.
Leather party dresses
This first trend is not for everyone. Personally, I like wearing leather. So, am intrigued by this year’s leather dress designs by Tods, Givenchy, Loewe and Stella McCartney. They all featured leather dresses in their collections. It is a trend that is starting to work its way through to regular fashion. So, if you want something really different, keep an eye out for striking leather dresses. They are probably not the right choice for the office party, but for a night out on the town with your girlfriends they could be ideal. They are a great way to put together a sharp, edgy look.
If you like shiny dresses for festive occasions, you are spoilt for choice. Last year’s silvery metallic fabrics have been joined by sequins and high-gloss finishes. They are available in everything from black, to electric blues and muted pastels.
Classic maxi dresses
For more glamorous parties, a maxi dress can work particularly well. These long elegant dresses are typically flattering and they are available in several cuts, so it is not hard to create the perfect look for you.
Unsurprisingly, most retailers have decided to once again stock a big range of little black dresses. Every woman should have at least one in their wardrobe. They are so classy and have a timeless appeal.
This year, look out for the ones that include a little extra detailing. The addition of a little lace, a faux belt or a few beads really does make a huge difference to how special you will look. In many cases, removing the detailing to change the look and feel of the dress is easy. So, effectively when you buy a detailed LBD you are getting two beautiful party outfits for the price of one.
Why now is the perfect time to shop for partywear?
With the Black Friday sales just around the corner, now is an especially good time to go online and pick out a few dresses that you fancy buying. When you find something that you like take the time to copy and paste the links. That way when you wake up on Black Friday morning you can quickly find out if they are available in the sale. If they are not, you can either buy them anyway or wait for the Cyber Monday sale and see if they are discounted then. Taking this approach is a great way to save yourself a little cash so that you can buy yourself some extra nice accessories.
