2010 cheap party dresses for xmas - maxi image 1.jpg

A couple of years ago we decided to help our dear readers with their festive plans by digging around for the 100 best party dresses which were also both affordable and adorable. After all, as some of the best retailers and brands have proven, cheap doesn't necessary have to equal nasty. In bringing you our 100 Cheap Party Dresses for Christmas feature, we also thought we'd categorise each blog post by dress style - just to make things a that little extra easier for you.

To kick things off, we decided to take the ever-popular trend of maxi dresses. Like the rest of the items in this feature, all of these lovely frocks are under £100. So stay tuned in the coming weeks as we bring you all the best party dresses around from the glamorous and glitzy to the unusual and unique. Happy shopping!
