100 Cheap Party Dresses for Christmas #36 - Colourblocking and hiding that festive overindulgence
Pretty cinched-waist party dresses are all well and good in the run-up to Christmas, but what about after you've consumed half a turkey and your own body weight in Quality Street? That's where dresses like this one come in. The voluminous shape hides a post-indulgence belly, but the colourblocking keeps it looking stylish. In fact, the grey block pattern reminds me of Jonathan Saunders, but at £39.99 from new online boutique MoonSpark, it's a lot more affordable.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I can see this being worn over wet-look or sequin leggings if you have the guts to pull off something so faddy. Otherwise pull out those old faithful black opaques or grey wool tights and the coolest, chunkiest grey shoes you can find.
