It just wouldn't be Christmas without at least one sequin-covered frock, would it?

Sometimes it’s fun to push the boundaries with fashion and switch up your style, but when December rolls around there’s only one thing on our minds: sparkly dresses.

Whether it’s the office Christmas party or a big night out with your girl gang, everybody’s got at least one occasion where a knock-out sequin-covered cocktail frock is basically the only option – which is why the shops are packed to the rafters right now with the kind of dresses that wouldn’t look out of place on the Strictly dance floor.

This season, it’s not just festive favourites silver and gold that are dominating the sparkly market. Sapphire blue and regal purple are reminiscent of Christmas choccies (in a good way), while metallics like rose gold and copper offer a more subtle way to shine.

The bodycon silhouette is back (that’ll be down to the AW17 Eighties catwalk trend), and we’re seeing lots of cool sleeve detailing and longer length sleeves (a wise choice if you don’t want to look too revealing at the work ‘do).

Whatever your preference, there’s a glittery showstopper out there for everyone. We’ve rounded up a dozen dazzling dresses that are all just perfect for party season…
