Couture-Inspired Christmas Party Dresses

By Charlotte Rowland

It's the most wonderful time of the year, as they say. And it can also be the most glamorous, depending on if you can be bothered to take off your onesie. 

The trends this month are all about bling and sparkle as the high street is awash with sequins, jewels, velvet, golds, reds, and decadent prints.

As the Christmas party season descends, here's my pick of this year's best buys and trends...
