Pick of the Party Dresses: Black and Gold

The festive season is upon us once again - and that means it's time to start planning your party wear. In a series of posts dedicated to bringing you the best of what the Great British High Street has to offer, I'll take you through all the hottest trends - all coming in at under £100.

The party looks around this Christmas are very decadent - so expect to see lots of lace, brocade, metallics, not to mention a whole lot of feathers and fringing.

A Little Black Dress is the fail safe option for this time of year - and this time around black is very much on the menu - even more so than usual, if that's possible. You only have to have seen Cheryl Cole's parade of LBD's on the X-Factor over the past few weeks to notice the dominance of the colour.

A veritable feast of delights can be found on the High Street, from maxis to minis - but I think that a '50s style prom dress makes for the perfect party dress. The cinched in waist and full skirt flatter womanly curves, or the right one can even create the illusion of an enviable hour-glass figure. Look out for black lace or gold brocade.
