Zara's Just Had A Party Dress Delivery—These Are The 14 You Should Add To Your Basket

The time has come.

Halloween is OVER.

Party season is quickly creeping up, whether you're ready to admit it or not.

Those office Christmas parties are getting earlier and earlier, not to mention the many other festive occasions which seem to fill every free moment of your diary from today onwards. With Halloween over for another year, the clocks going back last weekend and the nights drawing in, rather than getting depressed by it all, we wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate the best bit of the oncoming season: the clothes. It's not every day that you get to wear head-to-toe sequins, now is it?

While a few trends are featured (such as slip dresses and leopard print), we've purposefully picked dresses that will survive the season and serve you for years to come. Our party dressing rules? You can't go wrong with sequins and velvet, as they're both classics when it comes to after-dark dressing. Oh, and slinky, calf-grazing slips can also make for a sultry look.

We couldn't help but notice that Zara was looking particularly chic in the party dress area and, as a necessary public service, we thought we'd do a roundup our favourite looks.
