I know it's still November, but I'm already getting caught up in all the Christmas frenzy.

  One of the things I love about this time of year is the prospect of all the parties, and a chance to get dressed up.

 So I have picked out my 10 favourite party dresses that will give you the instant glam factor, but won't blow the budget........

ZARA

DANIELLE DROPBACK DRESS £99
MISS SELFRIDGE

 I wouldn't do the whole see through bit (obviously), but if your young enough and have the bod to carry it off go for it, and for the rest of us, a nude slip underneath would really show off the beautiful beading.

 It need little in the way of accessories, just heels and a box clutch should do it.

Metallic details dress

MIDNIGHT BLUE METALLIC DRESS £34.99

KEYHOLE BACK MAXI DRESS £70

Without trying too hard this quietly sexy dress
 is just smoldering. I would wear this with your highest strappy sandals, a great mani and pedi and a slick of red lippy.

SILVER LACE FITTED DRESS £50
NEXT 

A lace dress is timeless and will always make you feel dressed up. This one from Next is a great cut, and comes in
 sizes 6 to 20.

SEQUIN PANEL PLEAT DRESS £65
TOPSHOP

Who doesn't like a bit of sparkle, especially at Christmas. 

-------------

The party season means you can have a lot's of fun on the fashion front. So before you get caught up in all the
 frantic festive shopping, snap up your party dress,
 and get ready to hit the dance floor. 

Tis the season and all that.......!

TREND SPY.......LOW LUXE.





AW14

TREND



          Normcore aka 'Perfectly Boring'.........

Hermes A/W14


Jil Sander A/W14


Joseph A/W14


------------------------

Call it what you will, this palate cleansing anti fashion has become a big trend. 

It's about standing out by just fitting in....

Confusing?

  Not really...... 

 It's stripped back, simpler the better muted shades, plus the classic's, grey, navy and black. 
The softest of knits, and beautiful basics that work for you
 all day, every day.

Some might say it's boring and bland, or just a new name for minimalism?

 But low key luxury is wearable, investment dressing, that I would rather hand over my credit card for, than a short lived trend, 
that has often died before it hit's the stores.
