I’m calling it: this is the only party dress you’ll need this season

  • Ladies, the search is over, I’ve found the perfect party dress – with a couple months to spare might I add – and I think you’ll love it too.

    It’s by Self-Portrait, and before you say you already know about their collections, thank you very much, let me tell you see this season’s offering is quite different.

    There are still the lace cut-out dresses the label is known for, sure, but there are also a few more offbeat pieces in the mix.

    My favourite is this monochrome balloon sleeve number with high neck, serving up some serious 70s vibes. It may look demure, but trust me, it’s fitted in all the right places, and paired with some white ankle boots, will easily take you from office to party.

    If you’re looking for something a little bit sexier though, then try the polka dot ruffled mini dress which is just the right side of 80s chic, or a more romantic floral print number.

    The dress-over-jeans combo is still in this season too, so you can definitely wear these during the day.

    You know, in case you need an extra excuse to treat yourself…
