You’ve got the invite, you’ve saved the date, now you’re all about perfecting your party look. From cocktail dresses and little black dresses to eveningwear classics and all that shimmies in between, take a look at the top party dress styles that’ll get you set to dance ‘til dawn.
For The Frill Of It
The bigger the frill, the bigger the thrill – think dresses with full skirts and ruffle hemlines to create a look of feminine wonder. A ‘Frills and Thrills’ style dress is all about movement, whether it’s the vivacity of a frilled skirt as you sashay to the buffet or a pop of print in the afternoon sun.
Maximise your twirl potential with the sassy Maree Dress in Navy. A wrap dress style, Maree's cocktail look holds at the waist with a belt tie. The queen of fit & flare dresses, this wrap dress is fitted through the bodice before kicking loose over the legs with an A-line skirt that drapes to the knees.
Style Tip: Bring dark shades and solid colours to life with accessories that pop - think bubblegum pink, cobalt blue or a glitter of metallic silver or gold.
A wrap dress with 3/4 sleeves, the Oona Dress fits and flatters when you’re ready to let loose! Elegantly framing the decolletage, the wrap front creates a sensuous sweetheart neckline while fitted sleeves streamline the arms. In the opulent Tassel print, with it's flashes of lipstick red, bubblegum pink and glitzy gold, the Oona Dress is fun-loving and fancy free!
Wear for afternoon and sunset events and play up the Tassel print's pops of colour. Or create an eye-catching cocktail or evening look with glamorous gold accessories.
Style Tip: Crank up the music, karaoke those classics and make your getting ready rituals part of the fun!
A classic cut, the Oona Dress translates perfectly from 'popping in print' to 'timeless elegance' in black and navy. A fit and flare dress, Oona's designed to flatter every size and curve. From playful pockets and the luxurious tucks that finish the 3/4 sleeves to the demure midi-length hemline, every detail has been curated to ensure an elegant dress whether you're petite or plus size, curvy or sleight, small or tall.
The Red Carpet Reveller
The mood of the ‘Red Carpet Reveller’ is all about occasionwear that oozes A-list glamour. Give the occasion some old-school style and play up your curves because this look is all about womanly charms.
Channel some Sharon Stone-style sex appeal with the crisp cut of the Etta Dress. A fixed-wrap dress, Etta is designed to flatter. A crossover front securely contours the bust while a sunray of ruching through the waist veils the tummy. Dress the straight skirt and sleek ¾ sleeves with sharp stilettoes and a burst of bold lipstick.
A wrap dress with straight-cut, tulip hem skirt, the Heather Dress is a sassy dress that works for weddings, cocktail parties and fabulous going out style!
With long slender sleeves, the Heather Dress is the ultimate proof that dresses with sleeves can absolutely be sexy. Powering up the shoulders, gathered sleeveheads add definition to slim the silhouette and balance curves. Ruched details at the cuffs meanwhile add a little touch of 80s glamour to coax out your inner diva.
You can’t go wrong with the ‘Black Magic’ of the little black dress. A worthy investment, a good LBD is the ultimate evening escort – she’ll take you anywhere and everywhere with a style guaranteed. Find your perfect LBD partner with our Little Black Dress blog.

I love my matching top and pants
So comfortable and perfect length.
I’m a well rounded size 10 157cm and I feel comfortable and elegant in this ensemble.
Hoping for more in a new colour:)
Lovely “throw over” to wear on cooler summer days. Material is slinky with some stretch. Feels lovely to wear.
I love my brown flutter top.
Easy to wear and comfortable .
My favourite top is Emily but I thought I would give Daryl a chance and I love it .. I can see more Daryl tops in my wardrobe in the near future!
Sizing is a little on the small size. Nice jacket. Material gives some stretch. Looks good
This is not my first Jaime as I love the style. The bamboo fabric feels fabulous.
Bought in size 14 to fit my hips rather than my waist (16) and still comfortable. On my 163cm height they are just off the ground in flat shoes. They are beautifully flowy and very flattering.
Bought in a size 20. I find the open style allows for a larger bust, and it gives a good vertical line. Fabric is firm but soft and sits well. Very happy with the slimmer lapel, would buy again.
These are lovely. I’m not traditionally a shorts person, but these sit right on the knee for me ( I’m 155cm) and are comfortable and cool in this hot weather. I’m very happy with them!
Wore this for the first time to my work Christmas party and have never had so many complements in my life! Total strangers coming up to tell me how amazing it looked, am now thinking about buying the sapphire too! It is comfy and stylish, and way more sparkly in real life than the website photos suggest.
I absolutely love the Sumi print. I had to have Lila in Sumi to go with my navy danys and white pants. Such a great addition to my wardrobe. You can never have too many Lila’s in your wardrobe! Highly recommend!
Love this print and the slinky fabric. It’s so cool in hot weather. Lila is my go to top for work and play. Navy white and pink are my favourite colours so I had to have this one. It pairs beautifully with my navy Danys and white pants too. Highly recommend!
Very good quality denim, I’m sure I will get plenty of wear once the weather s cooler, very flattering 🙂
I picked up these culottes in a sale last year because I love my Jamie in Machu. This the first time I’ve worn them and my first Dany. Perfect length for my 162cm height and lovely fabric for this hot summer day. Looks lovely with navy Emily. More Danys please!
Just so wearable! Washes well, and the Evan style suits my shape (boobs and tummy!)
