Want an alternative to the LBD? You’ll love these…

We love the lyrics of the Amy Winehouse song Back to Black but the sentiment not so much – especially at party season.

While we sometimes love an LBD, black is not the only hue in the party wardrobe!

And this season there are such amazing alternatives we really don’t need to ‘fall back’ on black. Whether you like low-key colour or ‘wow’ colour; whatever silhouette or length you want, the collections deliver…

There are jewel colours, such as burgundy, emerald and sapphire, and stunning prints to lure us away from black. There are sumptuous textures such as velvet and jacquard that are truly flattering. Velvet is around in plenty of rich shades, while A/W’s ‘shimmer’ trend provides irresistible party-wear options in sumptuous metallics or head-to-toe sequins.

Some of our favourite party-perfect prints and jewel-bright colours are at Ted Baker where the designers have crafted exquisite fabrics into desirable dresses and stunning separates we can’t wait to get our hands on…

As always, Debenhams punches above its weight with its superb partywear, notably from collections such as No1 Jenny Packham and Studio by Preen.
