The Finder guide to Christmas party dresses 2020

All we want for Christmas is the perfect Christmas party dress and we want to help you find one too.

At this time of year, there are so many things to look forward to, not least the inevitable Christmas parties thrown by offices, colleagues, friends and loved ones. Okay, these are likely to be virtual this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress to impress!

In the quest to help you find that jaw-dropping outfit, we’ve pulled together some of our favourite party styles for you to browse.

Sequins are an obvious choice for the year’s sparkliest season but we know they’re not to everybody’s taste. If it’s something more low-key you’re after, then think strong block colours (ideally in Christmassy greens and reds) or keep it classic with a little black dress and make accessories your statement.

Where to buy Christmas party dresses

We. Love. Sparkles. Nothing says Christmas party quite like a dress covered completely in sequins. We’ve picked out our favourites here but this season the choices really are endless.

Our favourite Christmas party outfits (that aren’t dresses)

Maybe you aren’t really a dress kind of girl, but you can still look fierce this Christmas! Why not opt for a sequinned jumpsuit or a sparkly top with skinny jeans and heeled boots? Depending on what your Christmas party involves (sporting activities?) this might be a more practical option, too.

When do Christmas party dresses come out?

Retailers usually launch their Christmas and event lines in early or mid-November. Because November and December are such busy times of the year for events, people start looking for the perfect outfit from as early as the beginning of November.
