We've found the top party frocks to snap-up this festive season.
Christmas party season is upon us and you’re going to need a dress. Here are some nice ones.
The posh frock If you’ve got a posh Christmas ‘do on the cards, and a floor-length frock is required, this Debut Red Carpet corsage one shoulder number is a good bet. It’s sophisticated and stylish without being frumpy and all for Dhs850 in Debenhams.
One for skinny minnies If you’re a slim sort, this is the dress for you. The ruffles add width but the short cut lets you show your enviable pins off. The black ruffle dress is from Next but no price is available as yet.
The bold choice If you’re feeling brave, and you’ve got the figure for ruffles, this is the party frock for you. The Red Herring ruched body prom dress is available from Debenhams for Dhs200.
The one-shouldered wonder This brown satin number isn’t for everyone but it’s a good style to try if you know that one-shouldered works for you. The Conchita Dress is available from Monsoon for Dhs850.
The modest cover-up This style is great if you want to keep your shoulders covered. The smock style is also a winner if you’re pregnant or have a tum to cover. The dress is from Next but there isn’t a price available at the moment.
The quirky number If you dread formal events, this is the dress to try. Cool, a bit different, and equally good with or without tights, depending on the unpredictable Dubai winter climate. The Cream dress with orange sequin detail bottom is available from French Connection for Dhs900.
The mid-length option Not such a fan of your knees, but feel drowned by floor length? This is the frock to try. It covers up all of the right bits while wowing bystanders with the bright colour. The Nancy Pleat Dress is Dhs700 from Monsoon.
The little ‘brown’ number Black’s soooo last season. Well, it’s not, but it’s sometimes a bit of a drab choice for Dubai parties. Try brown instead if you want to opt for something dark without looking like you’re going to a funeral. This Chocolate ruffle sleeve dress is Dhs600 from Principles.
The best for block colour The thought of putting on a pattern brings some of us out in a cold sweat. This is a good option to calm your nerves. Plain, but not boring, in a classic shade. The Blue Silk dress with flower detailed shoulders is available from French Connection for Dhs700.
The lace number If you fancy sleeves but don’t want to feel too frumpy, try this lace number from Marks & Spencers. The Limited Collection 3/4 Sleeve Contrast Lace Dress is Dhs500.
