Say hello to the party dress you’ll actually wear more than once

    The invites for party season are already coming in, and with them comes the dilemma of finding that perfect party dress. While it’s so tempting to go down the sequin dress route (after all, what says party more than something that belongs in Studio 54?), you’ll inevitable struggle to wear it again. It’s a bit OTT for the office, isn’t it?

    Having bought a fair few glitter dresses myself, this season, I’ve decided to go wear the more wearable route, and I’ve found just the dress, thanks to one of my new favourite brands, Kitri.

    If you haven’t heard of Kitri yet, trust me, you will. The London brand was founded by Haeni Kim in March this year, and it’s already taken over my Instagram, thanks to its creative workwear which offers designs with a little twist. Think vinyl skirts with zip detailing, flared pinstripe suits and fun and colourful separates you can mix and match.

    And now Kitri is proving its party style credentials too, judging by this aforementioned green silk party dress, as seen on influencer Katherine Ormerod.

    The beauty of this dress is that it’s bold enough to be worn to a party, thanks to its emerald green colour, best paired with a pair of gold heeled sandals or velvet platforms, and a red lip.

    But you can also wear it to the office, with an oversized pinstripe blazer and patent burgundy boots.

    And (told you you could wear it three different ways), you can also style it in a more casual way, over jeans and classic white trainers.

    So really, you’ve got three outfits for the price of one, which totally justifies investing in a new party dress, non? It’s selling out quickly, but I’m told it’ll be available soon in an even more festive red.

    However, if colour isn’t your thing, the above black dress has also been a hit on Insta, thanks to its quirky hoop zip detailing. Now it’s sadly sold out online, however you may have more luck if you go to the Kitri pop-up store which is open until the end of the month. And if you don’t, at least it’s Instagrammable AF, so it’s really a win-win situation.

    You’ll find it at 35 Thayer Street, Marylebone, London W1U.
