Christmas party dresses should probably come with a fire hazard warning. They're all about the satin, sequins and feathers. As much as I like getting dressed up, it's all a little much sometimes. What if you're looking for something a little less flashy? Here are a few unconventional party dresses.
This Grecian maxi dress is divine. The long length and gold belt make it Christmassy without you looking like you've dressed up as a tree fairy. It's £49 from Topshop. That's mega cheap for so much slinking about.
There's something a little bit Erdem about this floral lace dress. It's £59.99 from Mango. It's also going to be mine.
It's not quite a festive red and I think that's why I like it. This little number is from Joy. It's £55 and you'll still be wearing it in 2013.
Yep, I'm totally suggested that you wear black leather instead of sparkles. This Mark Lupfer dress has such a gorgeous print. It's been designed exclusively as part of the ASOS Black range and it's £175.
I was all about this jester shift dress from Fever, but actually I like the other dress as well. Both absolutely perfect for parties and they look really comfy. Both dresses are in the sale - the jester dress is reduced to £41.99, the gold trim dress is £55.99. And the best thing is there's not a single sequin or ostrich feather in sight.
