Party dresses shouldn't be a stress to buy. Find them far enough in advance and it should actually be fun.
Whether you've got an engagement or birthday party, a night out or a big family bash, we've got a piece you'll love. Don't be put off, thinking a certain style doesn't suit your body shape, as there's one to suit everyone, from oversized mini dresses to cinched-in maxis - and they'd all make the perfect party dress. And before you know it, the festive season will be here again too and then bring on all your Christmas party dilemmas.
If you want an altogether simpler party look, there's LBDs and classic A-line silhouttes, as well as intricate embroidered styles.
Our favourite has still got to be the classic slip dress. Versatile and timeless, you can dress it up with heels or down with white trainers. Whatever the weather, it works, too; throw on a tie-up wool coat for winter party chic.
Don't worry if you're on a budget (who isn't?), we've got a whole range of price tags from the bargain styles to investment buys you'll be wearing to parties for years.
So, if you've got a party coming up, check out our pick of the best dresses for one to suit you...
