The Best Evening Pieces On The High Street

This year, party season will be what you make of it – especially when staying in is the new going out. To help, we went to John Lewis and enlisted three stylish influencers to prove glamorous dresses and tailoring look just as good with a statement lip and heel at home as they do on the dance floor…
CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH JOHN LEWIS & PARTNERS
Velvet? Check. Statement collar? Check. Pearl details? Check. This Ghost dress has it all and is made for Christmas Day.
This tiered teal dress has all the trappings of the perfect party piece, while also being a comfortable, easy go-to. Its oversized fit gives it a designer look, without the price tag.
With its asymmetric shoulder, figure-hugging fit and velvet finish, this is the sexiest LBD we’ve seen this season. The midi length and long sleeves make it a little more grown-up, too.
Naturally, festive season is sequin season, and this black wrap dress is an easy way to wear the look. Take cues from Charlotte and let the dress do the talking – just add strappy sandals and a bold lip. Buy now, wear for all party seasons to come.
Exclusive to John Lewis, this sequin two–piece is the ultimate party outfit. Tone it down by adding a chunky knit to the skirt or denim with the tee, or wear them together like Gayle for total festive glam.
A velvet blazer paired with black trousers is an easy hack for nailing glamorous evening dressing. Just add a bustier and heels for cocktail hour and beyond...
