Bold, beautiful and full of personality, the fleur-de-lis motif on this figure-skimming dress takes inspiration from the ornate patterns that adorn the backs of playing cards.
Osmond Kings-Print Crepe Dress, £1,395, Mary Katrantzou
Jewelled tones, decadent velvet and irresistibly soft satin; ‘party’ doesn’t necessarily mean ‘a dress’. The romanticism of a blouson-sleeve blouse perfectly balances the slim silhouette of these trousers.

Winter florals abound in vivid colourways in this contemporary take on the classic mini dress. A high collar, draped detailing and side button insert ensure this party look is right up to date and sure to turn heads.
