Whether the prospect of party dressing brings you out in a rash, or your entire cupboard is full to the brim with evening wear, with nary a jean or a sensible jumper in sight, we know that the purchase of a really great party frock – you know, when it actually fits you properly and makes you feel two inches thinner and a zillion dollars more glamorous – is the bestest mood-lifter there is.
With the dreaded mistletoe-sprigged season already upon us, you could do a lot worse than invest in a dress from Roksanda Illincic’s beautiful capsule collection for Matches. Ranging in price from £575 to £1,395 there is something for everyone. For the model-like among us, a diaphanous, bias-cut slinky number is guaranteed to turn heads, while for the rest of us, a slightly more tailored number with a contrast colour waistband is JUST THE CHRISTMAS TICKET ! !! !
