Pick of the Party Dresses: Make a Statement

There are a lot of showstoppers out there for the festive season; feathers, fringing, cut-outs and asymmetric necklines are just some of the styles to look out for. Distinctive, yes, but these dresses certainly won't be one hit wonders.

Fringing may have made the cut to be named as one of the top 10 trends men hate, but this is one trend which is only set to gather pace in the coming months. Fringed pieces were to be seen in the S/S '11 collections everywhere from Betty Jackson to House of Holland and Mark Fast during London Fashion Week, so why not get in early? Plus, a fringed flapper dress looks great on the dance floor!

Fashion's preoccupation with the 70s is another trend which is set to prosper well in to the New Year, and an asymmetric dress with one over-sized chiffon sleeve is a great way to reference the era during the party season.

In terms of colour, there is always a lot of black in the shops at this time of year, but if you really want to stand out from the crowd, I say go for red.

Here are my picks. Happy shopping!

Asymmetric tulip dress with feather trim, £59.99 River Island

Feather fringed strapless dress with sweetheart neckline, £99 Very

Red cut-out detail dress, £50 Topshop

Asymmetric chiffon sleeve dress, £35 Rare
