Christmas Party Dresses with French Connection (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

Anybody else obsessed with finding a great Christmas party dress?
I guess as someone who spends most of her life in casual attire the festive season is that one time of year where i get to go all out and get properly dressed up. And i really enjoy it too.

The dress hunt obviously starts in November, as it has to be just the right dress (obvs ?)

So with the help of fine dress purveyors French Connection, I have found a plethora of marvellous dress suggestions for you and for me.

As we all know, there are SO many trends out there right now, so I thought i’d share some classic pieces that will never age, pieces that are fun, fabulous, fashionable and wearable.

Lets get crackin’

Left: Rainbow Jewel Embellished Dress

Middle: Safi Sequin Dress

Right: Strappy Sparkle Dress

Its the time of year when sequins, shiny and embellishment is completely and utterly acceptable. Whether it be house party or Christmas ball, you’re fanciest wears are good to go! There is nothing nicer than shining extra bright through the festivities and these 3 dresses will most certainly help you shine.

I think my favourite for me is the Rainbow Jewel Embellished Dress which also comes in Opal grey which is utterly divine (be sure to go see that one as its not pictured above). But for a complete siren look you have to go for the Starlight Sparkle Strappy Dress: Gunmetal grey, close fitting, super flattering for the curves, low cut to show off the decolletage and a super leg lengthening split to the side. This should come with a warning for your husband/boyfriend/ partner ?

Left:Band Mesh Insert Bodycon Dress

Middle: Tatlin beau Dress

Right: Tatlin Beau Flared Dress

The classic, the timeless, the chic and ever practical yet pretty, Little black dress.

I love that these French Connection dresses have the most gorgeous details to really up the LBD stakes, taking it from plain to, quite frankly, fabulous. Whether it be with mesh, lace or embroidery the LBD gets an upgrade and is perfect party attire. 

Left: Emmie Lace Dress

Middle: Snow Spell Feather Beaded Dress

Right: Anouk Flared Dress

Lace is just the most pretty and girly finery a lady could wear if you ask me. Exquisite detailing makes these dresses elegant yet bold… I mean just look at the Snow Spell dress, which is the most beautiful winter white and kind of fairy-esque. Paired with black accessories (Carrie Bradshaw style) would allow this to be less 5 year old girl in dress up, and more fabulous glamour. Alternatively we have the ever present ‘self portrait’ style dress that embodies lace detailing at its finest. The Anouk Dress could work well for Christmas, New Year celebrations, christenings and weddings!

Left: Prila Drape Embroidered Maxi Dress

Middle:Midnight Garden Embroidered Maxi Dress

Right: Amore Sparkle embroidered Maxi Dress

I have a real thing for maxi dresses this winter. I adore the flow of fabric in the cold winter breeze, the detailing and the fact that even though a lot of the flesh is covered (me no likey getting cold) the maxi dress still oozes sophistication.

I just sat staring at all 3 trying to decide which maxi dress is my favourite and i just cant decide between the Prila Drape dress or the Amore dress. So different yet both so beautiful. Again both dresses could allow for multiple wears through the year, and perfect for special occasions or a meal out.

Left:Sasha Satin Fluted Mini Dress

Middle:Juliet Satin Bow Dress

Right: Sasha Satin Fluted Maxi Dress

There’s something so sumptuous about Satin. I think its because as a fabric it’s definitely not something we wear on the daily ( I mean, I don’t.. you might.. which if you do, I totally applaud) Its an occasion dress which deserves to be worn. I am smitten with the colour of the Sasha Satin Fluted Mini Dress, the fuchsia feels unexpected this time of year, with blacks and reds and winter whites a plenty, but this makes it even more attractive. Plus it could be accessorised and remixed differently for multiple wears with silver, black, navy gold or greens. Its a surprisingly versatile colour that really packs a punch.

Tell me if you had to choose which type of dress would you wear this festive season?

For me it has to be Starlight Sparkle Strappy Dress, paired with some black pointed heels, a black clutch and a bright red lip!
