Christmas parties are always something we look forward to, but this year the idea feels particularly exciting given that last year we had to make do with a festive Zoom quiz and sending pictures of ourselves cheering a Bailey's hot choccie to our WhatsApp group. 

Usually it takes us weeks to find the ideal piece and takes us dangerously close to the deadline, but this year we've smugly stumbled on the perfect dress early on.

The Sequin V-Neck Angel Sleeve Midi Dress from Marks & Spencer is about as festive as it gets while still staying chic, and can be repurposed for New Year's Eve too. 

Move fast if you like it as it's already sold out in several sizes. 

Why we rate it:

The affordable skater design in a mid length is flattering on all body shapes, while the short angel-style sleeves add some floatiness, while the v-neck and front split provide a sophisticated look. 

It's also the type of dress that would make a lovely seasonal day outfit too - simply throw over a neutral cashmere jumper and a pair of boots and you've got yourself the ultimate in wintery ensembles.

Plus, as is always important to consider during the festive season, the fabric has added stretch for total comfort whether you're wearing it a party or for the big C-Day itself. 

While you may think it's too early to start thinking about your party outfit, coming in at under £70, this shimmering silver number is already flying off the virtual shelves so you may want to pop it in your basket ASAP.
