Perhaps you have a timeless favourite that will be brought out for its annual outing or maybe you are about to begin scouring the shops in the hope of finding a new show-stopping creation.

Either way, before you decide on which design you will wear, take a look at The Sloaney’s Top 5 Stylish Party Dresses….

1 A classic LBD never fails and we love this Stella McCartney creation that has a contemporary twist. The mesh waist panel is current and gives the dress a flirty feel but the long sleeves help to maintain a sense of sophistication.

2 If you need a spectacular dress for a black tie ball, then turn to one of The Sloaney’s favourite designers, Jenny Packham. She is the first choice of the Duchess of Cambridge when it comes to red carpet events and it’s easy to see why. This nude gown with gold embellished detail demonstrates her enviable skill with formal wear and will make sure you are dressed like a duchess.

3 It can be all too easy to opt for darker colour during the winter months but one way to stand out at a Christmas cocktail party is to add a splash of colour. This bright pink Roland Mouret number veers away from the more predictable shades of rouge and presents a refreshing and girly pop of colour.

4 Who can resist a little bit of sparkle during the festivities? If you need to satisfy a desire to glitter throughout the evening, try this Donna Karen sequin jersey dress. The stretch fabric helps to create a defined silhouette and you will certainly catch the attention of everyone on the dance floor.

5 Last but not least, if you are looking for something with a couture feel and a structured finish, this Temperley London dress is designed with an Art Deco theme in mind. It will flatter many different figures and features raised ribbon detail, which gives a wintry feel.
