Christmas is well and truly on its way and this can only mean one thing – a season of parties and rummaging through a closet full of expired party dress possibilities. Well this year Panache has teamed up with LittleBlackDress.co.uk to ensure that from your lingerie to your dress, no matter which fruit you are, you’ll be looking perfectly on trend. Take it away Team LBD…
Pear shaped and peplum perfect
From dress experts Marchesa and Herve Leger to legendary designer Alexander McQueen, the strapless dress has proved de rigueur for this festive season. This so happens to be very convenient for the pears out there as this is a style that will draw attention to your slender shoulders and décolletage, away from your broader hips. A strapless dress like this Ruby Ray jacquard dress features the right shaped peplum to balance out your hips and accentuate a small waist. This Utopia bra is ideal for a strapless dress, not only will you feel like quite the temptress but it will support you too.
Hourglass and ready to rock
It’s been plain sailing for the hourglass girl for many years, you go in-and-out in all the right places and your biggest worry is flaunting your ample assets. This Christmas ensure you’re the belle of the ball with a curve-hugging dress in red like screen siren Sophia Vergara. Not only is red a great festive colour but also an essential in the winter collections of Dolce and Gabbana, Antonio Berardi and Roberto Cavalli. This Honor Gold maxi dress is a great shape and has a fishtail hem to make your figure appear even more womanly. This ultra-sexy Alice slip has a tight-fitting lycra bodice to slim and ensure you won’t have to worry about any unsightly lines under your dress.
In case you hadn’t noticed, lace is the material of choice to be seen in this season and this feminine frilly detail is a definite winner for Christmas parties. If you’re an apple like Drew Barrymore you will no doubt be the envy of your friends with your long slim legs and toned arms, so for Christmas party dresses opt to show off your lithe limbs. This Darling dress is perfectly sculpted; it offers sexy, sheer lace sleeves to slimline your upper arms and the lace detailing to the sides creates the illusion of a slimmer and more curvaceous silhouette. Matched with this supportive Antoinette basque which has extra boning around the body for support, you’re sure to turn a few heads.
Curvy and cocktail ready
With a voluptuous figure like Adele or Holly Willoughby, it’s all about accentuating your best bits and choosing a dress to glide over any unwanted areas. Monochrome is still a massive look and there’s nothing like embellishment to make you stand out at a Christmas party. This Chi Chi London dress was made for the curvier woman; the crystal and pearl embellished bodice draws attention upwards where the sheer detailing allows a hint of cleavage. The empire line is a great cut for a fuller figure as it skims past stomach and hips, whilst the pretty capped sleeves flatter your arms. This pretty flesh coloured Tango set will give you a great supportive cleavage whilst the flesh tone is perfect for ensuring no shadows.
