The Party Edit – Dresses, Heels and Bags to suit your Colouring and Body Shape

This week as the party season starts I have done a roundup of gorgeous dresses, to die for shoes and pretty bags; everything you need for your Christmas party. With some black (of course), red, colour, designer, plus size and petites there are ideas for all shapes, sizes and colouring! So when that invitation arrives you are ready to go.

I’ve marked each dress with the following to show you which shapes they are good for A Apple, P Pear, NH Neat Hourglass, FH Full Hourglass, S Straight.

And for colouring L Light, D Deep, W Warm, C Cool, B Bright, M Muted or soft.

Starting with the LBD:
