With festive TV adverts dropping and Starbucks red cups returning, it really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. And that means we are heading into party season at speed. After two years of tentative plans, it's looking like 2022 will be the year of socialising, so it's only natural that you'll be looking at your wardrobe to for a Christmas party dress to ensure you look and feel your best.
With office Christmas parties, family gatherings, and nights out with friends on the agenda, there's a plethora of opportunities to get dressed up. But if you're feeling a little anxious, that's ok too. With the cost-of-living crisis dominating headlines, party dresses might not be top of your list. Take a look in your wardrobe at what you already own, we bet you have some great pieces hiding in there that could be restyled and given a new lease of life. Plus, the booming rental market is bursting at the seams with new season styles, all for a fraction of the regular price.

From vibrant velvet options to sparkly styles, if you are looking to buy something brand new, there's no short supply of affordable Christmas party dresses. We've found frocks from some of our favourite high-street fashion giants such as H&M, Zara, Asos, and more, and have also spotlighted some smaller brands you need to know, too.
