The best party dresses on the high street

Glitz and glam on a budget

Best high street party dresses
Edward Berthelot

If you're one of those people who longs for the end of sweaty summers, stuffy commutes and denim shorts, you'll likely be thrilled that party season is on the horizon.

With a flurry of new season fashion, there’s no need to mourn the shedding of the seasons (daily gingerbread latte, anyone?), and the best place to start? A brand new party dress, of course.

But we all know that the end of summer spells cold, gloomy weather. So, we say the best way to brighten up your mood at this time of year is with a pop of bold colour – try emerald greens, cobalt blues or maybe a sumptuous yellow gold. And if glitzy sequinned dresses are your thing, then you’re in luck, as heavily embellished party pieces are storming the high street this season.

Or, if you prepare an understated look, you can’t go wrong with a classic LBD, and there’s plenty of varieties available right now, from velvet minis to asymmetric lace midis.

Whatever you decide, there’s sure to be something here that takes your fancy from the great British high street – and all under £170!
