If you love a classic LBD there are plenty for you to choose from. Just add some colour with your accessories and perhaps a festive red lip.

A red dress is the perfect choice for the festive seasons. Accessorise it with metallics – gold, silver, bronze or pewter – rather than black which can look too heavy.


Best Party Dresses & Jumpsuits – Green Dresses

Green dress

This season, green is popular colour for party dresses. If you have a warm skin tone look for an olive or moss green and for a cool skin tone chose an emerald green. Green looks gorgeous accessorised with bronze, but there are plenty of green accessories around too.


Best Party Dresses & Jumpsuits – Blue Dresses

Navy dress


Choose a classic navy and you will be able to bring it out again in future years with different accessories. I think navy and silver make a gorgeous combination. Look out for jewel toned blues if you are Bright, Deep or Cool in colouring.


Best Party Dresses & Jumpsuits – Burgundy & Berry Dresses

Another popular colour this year is a burgundy or berry. Choose accessories is pinks or metallics and navy is a good option too. Remember to choose a berry or pin k lipstick rather than a red.
