Christmas Party Dress Inspiration

I think there are two camps when it comes to the Office Christmas Party. One group that gets so excited that an entire new outfit is planned months in advance, discussed with rigour over the kettle boiling, first on the Champagne at the drinks reception and found at the bar ordering shots around 9pm. Inevitably, there will be the crawl-of-shame into work at 11am the next day with a McDonalds breakfast in alcohol-shaky hands. Or the other group who find the idea of socialising on a weeknight a shock to the system in the depths of December and will slip away at the earliest point only too happy to hear the gossip the next morning without a whiff of a handover.  Sadly, I've emerged from Camp A to Camp B (yes, that's B for Boring) of late. But whilst I miss those days when I'd buy a new dress for any occasion I went on a bit of an e-shopping binge to find those dresses that would sparkle bright at the Christmas Party.

Mint Velvet Sequin Mini Dress
If you're a fan of dancing under the glitter ball, why not dress like one? I love the high neckline and long sleeves which is perfect for a winter's night out. I wore a dress not to dissimilar for my 18th birthday... I only hope this one isn't see-through like that one was! #ThankGodIWoreBigKnickers

And Other Stories Sequin Mini Wrap Dress
Keeping with the theme but want more skin on show? Love this wrap-over mini dress with billowing (read: flattering) sleeves and a cute peep-hole back, you might want to opt (like the model) for some sheer black tights for the night tube journey home!

Monsoon 'Kourtney' Gold Spot Velvet Dress
If you wanted to avoid the congestion in the ladies' loos to change outfits before the drinks are poured, this could be a good option for you. Turning up at 9am in this one would totally save you the extra baggage. Have a clutch filled with statement earrings, a red lipstick and some killer heels to swap into and you'll be first to the bar.

And Other Stories Metallic Satin Side Knot Mini Dress
Oh my goodness, this dress! I wish I could wear this everyday!! I love that it's a little off the normal colour scheme whilst making you stand out from the crowd. Pair with over-the-knee boots or a pair of knitted ankle boots. Skip the necklace and opt for statement earrings, a nude lip and tousled waves to complete the look.

Zara Pleated Polka Dot Dress
A twist on a LBD if your safe zone in black. The little gold flecks add a little Christmas sparkle to your outfit. I think twirling on the dance floor in mandatory in this number!

Zara Velvet Dress with Dotted Mesh
These sleeves are LIFE! Way to up the ante on a traditional little black number with some incredible plush polka dot sleeves.
