Whether you’ve got Christmas drinks and nibbles or an all-out bash, these six standout dresses will get you ready for party season…

After last Christmas’s party season turned out to be something of a damp squib, this year it’s safe to say we’re going all out.

That means sequins, dressing up, standing out and generally embracing going full throttle.

And with everything from Christmas parties to festive dinners and of course the big day itself to consider, we’ve picked out six standout dresses to cover you for everything you’ve got planned.

Read on to pick which one you’re going to debut at the work Christmas party and which one you’re coveting for 25 December.

    Regardless of what you have booked into your social diary, you need a statement red dress to make your go-to for the Christmas period.

    This textured mini is rich in detailing, and easily dressed down with a slouchy jacket if you’re just heading to the pub.
