I’m going to make a bold claim: By creating a winter capsule wardrobe, I have genuinely managed to cut my time of getting ready in the mornings to just 30 minutes. That’s including my hair and makeup. For obvious reasons, this is great because I can maximise my time in a warm bed.

It’s time to talk about the “C” word: Christmas. We’re fully aware it’s only just autumn, but party season is approaching scarily fast, and the enjoyment of fashion often lies in the planning, right? The joy of discovering the party piece of your dreams can sometimes be greater than the actual night out itself. Of course, you might already own something and just need that reminder to dig it out of the back of your closet. Or you might feel inspired when you see our edit to go vintage shopping because the trends this year are particularly retro. Either way, this serves as a well-timed starter for what’s to come.
So while we’ve been planning our autumn capsule wardrobes and lining up our winter coats ready for when the inevitable happens, we’re also thinking about the dresses already grabbing our attention—from sequins to fancy prints and everything in between.
‘Tis the season where we can all take inspo from the decorations we’ll later adorn our houses with. Embrace anything from all over sequins, embellishment and basically anything that can light up a room.
Our research has led us to 19 “wow” dresses in particular. From 16Arlington’s retro feather trim to & Other Stories’ perfect puff-sleeved midis, scroll down to shop the party dresses that are sure to get you on the dance floor.
