21st November 2013 | Posted in Womens & Winter Fashion by H. Simpson
The work Christmas party. Those dreaded words may haunt some people of memories of a past drunken fuelled night. That one night you forget about impressing your bosses and instead, let your hair down - literally. This year it's time to redeem yourself and there's no better way than with that dress. That dress that's the subject of office talk during the weeks leading up to the party. It's a big decision and depends on what style, colour and fit you choose to go for. Here we have the top 10 Christmas party dresses from French Connection, Ted Baker, Religion, Minimum and Michael Kors...

French Connection

French Connection was created in 1972 as a clothing line that would go on to produce fashion forward designs at affordable prices. Renowned for elegant and fun creations, French Connection offer quirky prints and simple, stylish garments that have that classic touch.

The Chevron dress is sophisticated and stylish with an added feel of Christmas due to the gold panel front. Perfect for the cold, winters night, the dress is a far cry from being a skimpy number, with a thick Viscose/Nylon material and 3/4 length arms, the dress is also a knee length style ensured to keep you that bit warmer! Suited perfectly for the older woman, the Chevron has a bodycon fit that will flatter the figure without being too clingy and would also look perfectly fine with a pair of tights.

With a laced neck and sleeve area, the Vienna dress has a 'gothic' look whilst at the same time being feminine and pretty. For those that are body conscious, the design has a twisted front to ensure the tight fit isn't unflattering.

Ted Baker

Ted Baker was first established in 1987 but it wasn't until 1995 that Ted Baker for women was launched. Ted Baker offer feminine pieces that flatter the figure whilst at the same time offering quality clothing that is both eye-catching and unique, becoming staple pieces in your wardrobe.

For utter elegance, look no further than the Belleta dress. A rich, deep, Christmas inspired red, the dress is knee length and made from a quality, thick mixture of Polyester and Viscose materials. There's no need for any embellishment or detailing on the dress, the colour is eye catching enough. A 'scallop' neck and hemline has been added to give a pretty touch to such a bold dress.

A black dress to a special occasion is classy, sophisticated and flattering, but adding a coloured dress to the equation adds a touch of fun, boldness and a playful feel. The Frella dress is the right shade of green and should be accessorised with gold to add that festive touch.

For a fitted bodycon style that will accentuate the figure, take a look at the Corie dress. A great alternative to black, the light pink has a fresh and feminine feel with a panelled front and a statement zip at the back.

For a simple LBD (Little Black Dress), the Dixy dress is one of class and sophistication. The low neckline gives a good excuse to wear a statement necklace to match the clutch. To complete the look, opt for a pair of new season Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon Heart Shoes.

Religion are a brand that produce clothing lines that offer an authentic feel with edgy, quirky designs. Skulls, skeletons and all things 'haunted' with a mix of tie dye and faded washes, Religion have seen a major comeback in recent years, in particular with the skull and cross trends we have seen this year.

Keeping within their theme of edgy, haunting colours and style, the Majolica Torture dress has floaty, draped material that gives a different, quirky style to the regular dress.

The Magpie dress can be seen shown off to it's full potential in this outfit blog here. The bottom of the dress is a tighter fit compared to the draped feel of the top half and so would look great broken up with a skinny belt such as this Ted Baker Weldon Belt or the Ted Baker Bowett Belt (see bottom of the page). Finish with a slick of red lipstick to add to that statement look.

Minimum are a Danish brand that established into a women's line in 2007 and since then have become an international success offering simple, attractive designs with a difference.

The Molia dress is the typical Christmas party dress. Shiny sequins adorn the dress from top to bottom with the back of the dress having an open back to add a splash of sex appeal. As the dress is a loose fit, a pair of tights would also look great and offer a little bit more warmth.

Michael Kors

Michael Kors took a general interest in fashion from an early age which would later lead to him becoming one of the world's most renowned fashion designers. Appearing in various episodes of Project Runway has projected Michael Kors into the limelight even more so and this year has seen the public take a heavy interest in the classic bag and clothing range.

To opt for something a little more higher end, look no further than Michael Kors. Dress to impress and become the envy of colleagues with an eclectic designer dress. Boasting a rich pink shade, the wrap style dress is fitted with a Michael Kors piece of metal hardware for all to see. The Christmas party only happens once a year so go ahead and treat yourself!
