These three dresses are already winning at party season

  • Marie Claire is supported by its audience. When you purchase through links on our site, we may earn commission on some of the items you choose to buy.
  • If you are obsessed with dresses (and advent calendars for that matter), then John Lewis & Partners’ 12 dresses of Christmas will sort you out for party season and beyond.

    The department store has worked alongside lots of our favourite high street brands, including Jigsaw and Whistles, to create 12 bespoke dresses to cover all your festive outings, be it New Year’s Eve or a Christmas lunch with your pals.

    Although the idea is one dress per advent day, they are all available for sale now, because why would you wait eh? There are velvet midi dresses and tuxedos, slip dresses and silk dresses galore, as well as jazzier sequin pieces for going out out.

    The collection launched yesterday, and there are already three best-selling dresses, to give you an inkling of what to invest in, should you not want to blow your budget on all twelve outfits, which would be the dream.

    According to the buyers at JL&P, the dresses by Hush, Mint Velvet and Warehouse are already the most popular, and I can see why.
