The 2012 party season is your time to be seen. Its time to shimmer and shine, glitter and glow in this season’s hottest holiday looks.
Eileen Shanon, buyer and stylist for Unpredictable, says “Dresses are really in,” not only are holiday dresses to be worn short and sexy, but you can also dazzle with classy and sassy knee-length styles, adds Laurie Johnson, owner of Unpredictable.
Go Glamorous – For those chic black-tie events, think old fashioned glamour, such as evening gowns with an old Hollywood look, and classic silhouettes accented with timeless jewelry pieces such as pearls and diamonds. Top this off with a faux fur jacket or wrap, a look conveys sophistication and elegance.
Embellish with sequins, studs, glitter and a little metallic…Accentuate a simple outfit with carefully chosen pieces of jewellery.
So, with these in mind, here is a review of what our favourite online stores have to offer this season.
Apricot Online: If you are wanting a short and sassy party dress for the party season make sure you check out the range at Apricot Online. Gothic laces, elegant peplums and essential little black dresses a plenty to be found at this store – with something to suit all you beautiful petites. Achievable prices – just around £30 for a nice dress on average.
Daisy Street – Again, if looking for that perfect short and sassy dress at reasonable prices you can do no better than check out Daisy Street (a relatively new discovery for us). Definitely for the petite and young, or at least, very young at heart!. Good range of value items – around £24.99 for a cute party dress. Dress sizes tend to be 8-12, with a few in a size 14.Dorothy Perkins – If you are a fan of the Kardashians sense of style then perhaps you should head over to Dorothy Perkins who are currently selling a range of clothes designed by them – and clearly demonstrating their sense of style. Great if you have a good figure – not so great if you are carrying more than a few extra pounds. Most items available in sizes 8 to 16. Some items now on sale.
Love Clothing is a relatively newcomer on my scene and I have not had any experience of dealing with them as yet. I can say with some degree of certainty they do have a relatively nice range of clothing on their site – and it certainly looks promising for the future. Cute range of dresses, available at reasonable cost, in sizes 10 to 14.
Miss Selfridge – Once again a great range of affordable and fashionable outfits are available for the 2012 party season. Good range of dresses in a wide range of styles available in sizes 8 to 16.
missguided – Budget clothing Fashionistas would indeed be misguided if they chose to overlook this store. They have a cute range of party dresses available for the young in sizes 8 to 14.
