Christmas party season is here and top of our to-do list is finding the perfect outfit.
This year we want to look and feel our best, so are on the hunt for something comfy, flattering, and obviously, sparkly. The only problem? Most options are either super expensive or already sold out.
Case in point: A Marks & Spencer black sequin dress proved so popular after being featured in the 2023 Christmas advert that one sold every minute earlier this month (and sadly, it remains sold out).
Thankfully, John Lewis has come through with an arguably even better option. This Sequin Wrap Dress which features a flattering silhouette, is covered in gold sequins, and right now has been reduced from £89 to just £44.50.
The glamorous number is bound to make you stand out for all the right reasons at your work Christmas party, or make you feel especially festive on Christmas Day.
John Lewis have styled it with thin black tights, heels and a matching black clutch, which is a great classic option. Want to make a bit more of a statement? You could accessorise with a pop of red, from merlot hued velvet shoes to a berry red lip.
We love the fact that the dress has a v-neckline, which is both elegant and the perfect opportunity to show off some jewellery.
The dress is also lined so you won't have to put up with that horrible scratchy feeling all evening that some sequin pieces can cause.
What the reviews say
Despite being new to John Lewis's website, it's already proving popular with only sizes eight to 16 still in stock. There's already five-star review from a satisfied shopper who writes, "Fits perfectly and reasonably priced."
"This dress caught my attention as a simple yet elegant style. I got the dress for a milestone birthday party and I loved it."
"This dress is a very affordable way of making an impact. It is silver tiny sequins on a beige background creating a beautiful shimmering soft gold effect. It fits well and is true to size . I think it is a classic style so will can be worn season after season. The sequins can catch on other textiles so care needed when dancing the night away."
"Can't wait for an opportunity to wear this beautiful dress. Fits perfectly and reasonably priced (20% discount). Sequins do tend to drop, but not a problem for me. Just have to hope I receive an invitation now!!"
