Christmas party dress season is well and truly here—we’ve been earmarking our favourites for some time now (more on that sparkle-fest below), but before we give you our long list of coveted dresses, we have a few rules for the CPD.

1. This is the one time of year when it’s acceptable to wear as much sparkly stuff as possible without looking like you love My Little Pony.

2. When it comes to budget, remember that you can always bring it out the following year, so you can invest.

3. If in doubt, take your party dress inspo from Christmas decorations, and opt for that colour palette (think greens, reds, golds and silvers).

While we’re sure you have your own fixed ideas of what you’d like to wear for your chosen party, we might just have found a few pieces to sway you in another direction. This season is mostly about gorgeous midi satin wrap dresses, but there are also a number of short frocks that we know will please some. And fear not if you think these are too formal—we’ve also got a few winter florals that will work just as well for the office as they will for a festive shindig. But don’t just take our word for it—click through our gallery for our selection of the best Christmas party dresses that you can shop right now.
