It’s Party Season! Maddi Howell’s ultimate selection of party dresses for winter
I checked out the girl’s party dresses from GMD and liked what I saw; I’m already dreaming of my next night out. I’m ready to throw a favourite leather jacket or a structured cape over any of these dazzling party dresses and dance the night away…
First, I looked to black party dresses available; whether it’s a little black dress you’re looking for or a long black dress, there is a party dress to suit any figure. If peplum is your thing, add length AND a fishtail cut with the beautifully balancing Pia dress by Jarlo. The Havanna women’s party dress by MSGM will accentuate your waist and you can get tucking into those canapés while your legs steal all the attention; but if you’d like to try something a little more casually louche, style yourself downtown-chic in Alexander Wang’s Ruffled Skirt Dress.
I would challenge the girl (yes, I mean you) looking to hire designer party dresses to resist the bold magenta red and sexy plunge of Herve Leger’s V-Neck Bandage dress. Of all red party dresses, this is the queen of party dresses for women; retailing at £1,330, it is available to hire for £129 – so it would be surprising if your best friend was wearing the same thing!
I’m a pink lady at heart and whilst browsing through for my next try on session I found some cheaper party dresses for glamorous girly girls. Now that punky tartans and the sombre colours of winter have taken to the high street, nothing screams femininity and brightens up the evening like rosy pastel hues and shocking pink. This flowing pink party dress complete with sparkles from Lili London is long enough to swish and won’t break the bank – it’s available to hire for £29 and the perfect compliment to any skin tone. This is a great compromise between short party dresses and the silhouette that this train of material can create for you.
Last of all, but by all means not least, I love the killer fuchsia of Marchesa Notte’s strapless pink party dress. This stunning design would do nicely for my next girl’s night out and serve me well for a more formally dress coded drinks reception too! I am already imagining teaming with patent heels and visualising clutch bags… Perhaps a certain set of pink amethyst earrings I glanced at on the GMD website. Who would believe you could get hold of a 100% silk ladies party dress imbued with Hollywood glamour for £59?
