Christmas Dresses: My High Street Picks

Christmas party season is just around the corner and nothing motivates me to work more than the thought of a new Christmas outfit. I don't have anything planned so far but it's always good to be prepared, right? There's nothing worse than being invited out at the last minute and having nothing to wear. This year, my favourite seasonal party styles are velvet, sequins and rose gold. I'll admit, these styles aren't exactly radical but they are truly classically 'Christmas' and they come back into fashion year after year for a reason. The 'My High Street Picks' series has now become one of my favourite types of posts to write and readers seem to enjoy them so please comment if you have any thoughts about it.  

1. How beautiful is this dark purple velvet and lace number? As seen on the model it can be dressed down with a hat and chunky boots but it can look equally sophisticated with heels and a clutch. The brand is Oh My Love which can also be purchased on the Topshop website.

2. I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it and the price is amazing! New Look are really killing it with their Christmas formal wear this year. 

3. Again from New Look but in the Premium range, this stunning sequinned dress would be perfect for any Christmas party. I'd tone down the accessories though and stick to black heels, smokey eyes and neutral lips to give the dress the attention it deserves!

4. Yes there's more velvet. No I'm not sorry. I spotted this navy velvet dress on Asos and I love the silhouette style - it's very Audrey Hepburn.

5. Finally, leaving my favourite until last, this Miss Selfridge dress is probably one of the most beautiful dresses I've ever seen. The design reminds me of The Great Gatsby so if you have a themed Christmas party whether it be Gatsby, the Oscars or Hollywood, this is the dress for you.
