With so many choices of party dress in the fashion world today, it can be hard to know which shape and type to go for. But did you know that the type of party dress that you pick for a night out can reveal a lot about you? Have a read and see if you agree!
One of the most iconic choices of dress and worn by women to all types of events and occasions, the Little Black Dress - or LBD - is a great choice for a flattering dress that never goes out of style. Known for its unrivalled longevity, if you always turn to your trusty LBD for a night out, then you definitely know a good thing when you see it. You're a traditionalist at heart and are known for your classic yet beautiful taste. Optimistic and open, you're also very good at making decisions!
If your wardrobe is crammed full of gorgeous bodycon dresses, then you’ve clearly got some amazing confidence. A bodycon can be tricky to pull off if you haven’t got the feisty attitude to match, but you obviously do! Perfect for showing off your killer curves, the bodycon is sexy and feminine and a classic party outfit. Do you like all eyes on you when you walk into a room? We thought so!
Lace never goes out of style, and if you always turn to your favourite lace dress for a night on the town, then neither do you! There’s good reason this classic fabric remains one of the chicest styles for evening wear. Not only is lace incredibly elegant, but looks far more expensive than it really is and feels amazing to wear - making a lace dress an ideal choice for anyone who enjoys that touch of vintage class. Always opt for lace? You're a lover of the sweeping romance of older times, and have a natural elegance that can't be rivalled.
A shirt dress is low-key and the perfect clothing piece if you’re the kind of girl who often has to transform from day to night in a rush (see our Ultimate Guide to Day-to-Night dressing right here). Effortlessly stylish, these dresses strike that balance between work and play like no other style. Got a collection of shirt dresses in your wardrobe? If so, you’re definitely the kind of person who enjoys traditional values but with a bit of a twist. Your life is a whirlwind of social engagements and conversation but you wouldn't have it any other way. Do you have a slightly naughty side? We think so!
Feminine and romantic, if you prefer a skater dress you’re someone who loves to make a statement and who cherishes pure, strong connections with a few special people. Perfect for accentuating your waistline and showing off your legs, the skater dress is beautiful, young at heart and a little bit dramatic at times - just like you!
A striking and more dramatic dress than the shirt dress or the skater, if you’re a fan of digging out your maxi dress whenever you head for an evening out, then you clearly like to stand out from the crowd. Perfect for those who like to mix it up, you can match your maxi dress with an elegant hair-do and jewellery for a formal look, or keep it casual with flat shoes and a pared-down look depending on your mood. If you're a maxi dress kind of girl, you definitely can't sit still and enjoy nothing better than letting loose and trying new things!
Forget dresses altogether - if you’re the kind of woman who prefers a trusty playsuit or jumpsuit, then you clearly love to have fun. A playsuit allows you to dance the night away without worrying about your skirt blowing up Marilyn Monroe style, so if you're in love with jumpsuits, you're definitely a confident trend-setter with an air of sophistication. Just like you, your parties are always wild, effortlessly fun, and the talk of the town.
