It hasn’t gone unnoticed that our Style Ambassador, Coleen Rooney, has been looking especially chic and stylish lately, from her model-turn at the launch of her new range, to her sophisticated look at the Pride of Britain Awards, where she styled her Littlewoods dress to perfection.
So with Christmas and New Year’s Eve on the way, and our minds slowly turning back to fashion after a lengthy period of gifts, gifts and more gifts, we could all do with some outside advice to help get us back on track and looking fab for the party season.
With this in mind, we asked Coleen to give us her rundown of the top 10 party picks, and she even modelled some of the pieces herself so we can all see just how glam they can look.
If you’re looking to turn heads, then this Love Label one shoulder number (above) is just the dress. With a high waist and flattering pleat detail, this rich red dress is perfect for a night out and can be glammed up even more with statement heels and a slick of co-ordinating red lipstick.
For something more fun and flirty you can’t go wrong with this Love Label Lace Corset Dress (below), with a playful full net skirt and a beautiful lace beaded corset it’s a bit quirky and very feminine – sure to make you stand out in a crowd.
If you’re a lover of LBD’s, this ruffle dress from Rare (below) is sure to be a winner. A simple cut in classic black is given a fun and flirty edge with a thick band of ruffles along the bottom. Glam up with some statement jewellery for a fab little black party dress.
Sweetheart neckline, one shoulder, textured metallic brocade fabric – what more can you ask for from a party dress?! This Love Label one shoulder dress (above) is another fab pick by Coleen, which will look simple and understated when paired with black heels and a black waist belt.
This leather pencil dress by South (below) is the ultimate edgy party dress. A beautiful cut in luxurious leather, it will wrap around your curves and create real impact thanks to the stunning metallic bronze colour.
For some grown up glamour that shows off your curves and makes you dazzle in gold metallic and embellishment, look no further than the Teatro Jacquard Shift Dress (below) which has a simple, elegant shape that lets the fabric do all the talking.
We all know that the ultimate party dress over the festive season involves some sort of sequin, shimmer and shine. Coleen obviously agrees, as she has picked this fab Teatro sequin dress (below) as one of her top 10. Short sleeves, slash neck, mesh insert – who would have thought all over sequins could be so sophisticated!
If you want to sparkle in your party dress but are looking for something more toned down than all over sequins, this South studded tunic dress (below) is ideal. A simple tunic shape with an understated studded pattern, wear with or without tights and some killer heels to look subtly glam for your night out.
A simple dress with a ruffle and bow-shaped twist – this crepe French Connection dress (below) is a favourite of Coleen’s and the chic cut and colour will have real impact over the party season
Last but by no means least, if you want to stand out from the party crown and wear something other than a dress, or are looking for a cover up to keep out the cold on your night out – this South bed jacket (below) is the answer. It’s edgy, on trend and suitably embellished for the festive season – it’s not hard to see why it’s made Coleen’s top 10!
