Rousseau Dress by Maje, was £280 now £224
With the festive spirit well underway, we’re enjoying shopping on the high street more than ever with lots of glitz, glamour and texture in the stores.
As such, we thought now would be a good time to offer a little inspiration to those of you fortunate enough to be attending a friend or relative’s wedding during the upcoming party season.
Cue shimmering tops, festive florals and an embellishment overload that may well lead to an impulsive shopping spree. And if you don’t have a winter wedding in the diary, surely with Christmas and New Year fast approaching, there’s a need for new outfit!
Amore Sparkle Embroidered Tulle Dress, £195, from French Connection – Usually floral patterns are associated with the warmer seasons of the year, but this winter we are seeing an array of pretty petals in bold hues that are sure to make you stand out at the party.
Maneela Jacquard Dress, was £169, now £119, from Coast – We just love a bargain and as the Christmas sales are starting earlier and earlier, you can already be reaping the rewards of discounted seasonal gems such as this stunning dress from Coast, with on-trend Bardot neckline and insanely beautiful pattern.
