You can rely on Brit-chick Alexa Chung to set the standard for perfect party dressing. With her endless array of Luella prom-kick frocks, Poltock & Walsh numbers and Chanel shoesies it was only a matter of time before the leggy lass stepped out in, dress designer of the moment, Jason Wu.

The sexy red hue, the sweet ruffles and butter-wouldn’t melt ballet flats; this look is so hot it hurts...and you too can channel Alexa’s comfy cocktail look with our stylishly sourced high street finds.

Ted Baker is having a big old moment this season with cutsey cocktail frocks to make us drool. This red ruffled Yoke number is divine and at £129 it's a bit of a timelss bargain!

Kurt Geiger have a divine collection of super-sleek dress bags in store right now. This mini black chain-strap shoulder bag is as chic as Chanel at a snip of the price; these bags come in an array of colour variations from gold, pinky and purple. 

And finally, these patent pumps from Topshop finish the look a treat.
