The PARTY DRESS That Just Won’t Quit

It’s got a longer life­span than se­quin frocks, so no won­der fash­ion’s A-list are snap­ping up this de­signer homage

Win­ter brings with it many sar­to­rial strug­gles but none more test­ing than the hunt for the per­fect party dress. In a tale as old as time (and yes, that is a di­rect quote from Mrs. Potts) we spend so many hours each year analysing this sin­gle pur­chase that, in­evitably, our favourites end up sell­ing out, leav­ing us feel­ing as if we’ve taken a punch to the gut. Not this year though. We’ve al­ready tracked down our frock of choice, and it’s even got the blog­ger seal of ap­proval. We first clocked this vel­vet dream on Fash­ion Me Now’s Lucy Wil­liams and since that fate­ful day, we’ve not been able to think of any­thing else. Of course, there’s al­ways the fear that in­flu­encer out­fits could po­ten­tially cost you more than a new car but thank­fully, this num­ber’s from none other than Ur­ban Out­fit­ters – for just £59! In­spired by Valentino’s knock­out cat­walk frock, this crushed vel­vet, ruf­fled slip will not only see you through the festive (read: go­ing out out) sea­son but, as demon­strated by Lucy, it’ll pro­vide you with end­less day­time in­spo too. Wear it over a chunky roll neck and fin­ish with a cinched-in belt or try slip­ping it over a graphic tee and pair­ing with chunky boots for an off­beat vibe. Af­ter dark, it’ll look equally beaut lay­ered over a lace shirt as it will worn sans top with state­ment ear­rings and metal­lic heels. Sure, you’ll al­ways run the risk of some­one turn­ing up in same dress but, chances are, you’ll both wear it pretty dif­fer­ently any­way.
