It’s never too early to start thinking about your Christmas party dress. Sequin dresses, little black dresses, floating maxi gowns, ballgowns, lace prom dresses – they’re all already on the racks, just waiting to be snapped up for the biggest party night of your year.

So, in the next few weeks, we’ll share the Twelve Dresses of Christmas, starting today with Twelve Little Black Dresses

There is nothing as classic as a Little Black Dress. The LBD is a musthave for every woman. But where do you start with Little Black Dresses? The answer is wherever you feel like – there are so many varied shapes, styles, textures and fabrics.

Little black dresses with embellishment might be your thing. You might love little black dresses that nip in at the waist and pop out again in a full prom style skirt, or you might like simple, fitted, or tunic shapes. Whatever your style, there is a little black dress for everyone.

We’ve selected just twelve we think are perfect for the festive party season. Lace is a classic LBD fabric. There are so many lace patterns to choose from, and it looks great on bare skin, or just over black fabric.

Texture gives black an edge, as does a print in the fabric, or brighten things up with an LBD with a hint of colour. A classic nipped in waist and fuller skirt is an easy to wear style.
