Guess what! The time of the year when we frantically search for that perfect party dress is back. Yes the party season is here and we all want to look our best. Sometimes this whole process of finding your perfect dress can be daunting. Trust me, I have been there – frantically searching the web to find something of my choice.

There are quiet a few factors that you have to keep in mind while shopping for your perfect party outfit. You need to consider the occasion, venue, budget, your current fitness level and so on. To make things simple for you this time round, The Red Notebook has come up with a list of party wear suggestions that we have found on the web. We hope to bring down your stress level this year and make you the head turner of the party.

Occasion – Office Christmas party

We recommend a deep red colour dress or a classic LBD. While most women prefer black as it’s a safe choice, red will let you make a statement. You can team the red dress with nude court shoes, a sparkling clutch and studs. Here are my red and black party dresses suggestions for this year.

Red Party Dress


Occasion – Formal New Year Eve celebration

Formal outfits are general long or short cocktail dresses and long evening gowns. Depending on the event you can take your pick.

We recommend long evening gowns for formal events. Go for the glitz and opt for this fabulous blue sequin dress from Coast.



Another beautiful number is this black and gold fishtail hem maxi dress. Love the fact that dress gives a very gypsy feel.  Different from your standard evening gowns yet elegant.



Recycle and Reuse

Not in a mood to buy a new dresses this year then why not use existing pieces from your wardrobe and accessories them with statement pieces like a glitzy blazer or a sequin skirt with a classic black vest. Here are a few party separates that we are loving this season.
