Hit the hottest parties of Summer 2013 in style with our pick of the chicest party dresses of the season.
From wedding guest to prom dresses, cocktail dresses to little black dresses, whatever the party, there's a stunning frock to suit all in our hot edit.
And for Summer 2013, the top dress trends focus heavily on colour. For the more fashion-bold, brights and neons come in dazzling shades, while for something that bit more subtle, there's a mouth-watering array of pastels and softer hues. Floral prints are still going strong for the season, while for a more directional look, opt for colour-blocking and metallics.
For daytime, no summer wardrobe is complete without that failsafe white dress and this season there's a huge range of styles and shapes on offer. From delicate white lace dresses to maxi dresses, with such a pared-down base, the options for embellishments and accessories are endless.
Finding the right party dress to suit your bodyshape and figure need not be tricky with such a range of gorgeous gowns available. From body-con to wiggle dresses, fit-and-flare to shift dresses, we've scoured the top stores from Net-A-Porter to Matches Fashion to find you your perfect designer dress.
And for something a little easier on the purse, the high street comes up trumps with some seriously hot dresses. Zara, Whistles, Reiss and more offer up a chic collection this season from peplum to prom dresses.
