Party season means basically one thing – an excuse to wear sequins. At all times.

We want to look like the inside of a disco ball this Christmas. We want to dazzle passersby, nearly cause minor traffic incidents.

Luckily the high street understands our innate desire to sparkle until January. Take a look in any womens clothing shop and youll be met with a twinkly array of shimmering dresses.

But its a bit overwhelming. And choosing the optimum level of sparkle takes skill and patience.

Weve put together our festive favourites to help you turn heads at every party.

This shimmering, silver foil dress will feel special at any party. The smooth, scale-like sequins are bright enough to make a point, but subtle enough to not be OTT.

Team it with sky-high heels and faux fur black coat for added effect.

We love the ethereal shape of this dress. The drapey sleeves and soft blush colour are adorably girly and soft. Harden it up with tights, chunky boots and a leather jacket.

Make a statement with this multi-coloured number. The high neck and long sleeves perfectly offset the uber-short hem line – and because its rainbow you can wear any lip colour you like.

Big silver hoops and slicked-back hair will look great with this.

More rainbow sequins – but this time a longer length and a cheeky little thigh-split. The plunging neckline and cinched-in waist will look fantastic with a chunky belt. Or wear it alone and add a delicate long chain necklace in silver or gold.

Try a touch of androgyny this season with a tuxedo-jacket dress. This one is super-short and will look amazing with smoky eye make up and heeled leather boots.

Channel your inner mermaid in this sparkly gold mini. The square neckline promises to be really flattering, and a criss-cross sequin design that will definitely get you noticed.

The fluted sleeves make this rose-coloured dress a bit different. We also love the plunging neckline and oversized sequins.

With the blush tones, it will go perfectly with gold heels and earrings.
