Parties and cocktail dresses: a match that will last the test of time. The key to a show-stopping party look is statement features. Imagine vibrant colourways, luxurious fabrications and embroidered details. For a trending silhouette, look to oversised bow details, puff sleeves and fitted designs. In sun-soaked months, tones of lemon, blush pinks and porcelain are ideal, while cool-season parties call for rich berry, black and plum colourways. Accentuate your bold look with sparkling drop earrings and strappy heels.
