Dream Dresses from Phase Eight

Maybe you’re dreaming of a white Christmas this year, or maybe you’re dreaming that 2014 was all a dream and you may still get a very single Mr Clooney in your stocking. Whatever your Christmas dream may be, the chances are that you are also dreaming of wearing a killer dress over the festive season. Because if Christmas isn’t the time to pull the glad rags out and get really dressed up, then no time is.

Phase Eight always excel when it comes creating beautiful gowns and dresses for party season. The Collection 8 range takes its inspiration from the Hollywood style of the 1920s and 1930s with lace, beading, sequins and bias cut styles that hark back to the Golden Age of elegance, and could’ve come from the wardrobe of Joan Crawford or Constance Bennett.

If long dresses are not your style (and, to be honest, we don’t all have an occasion this Christmas that would fit a full length gown.) then Phase Eight also caters for your taste, with short, shift style dresses and 1950s looks with full skirts and nipped in waists.

So this year, whether you’re channeling your inner Kate Middleton, or Kate Moss you should be able to find a dress that will suit your mood or occasion.

Duchess Kate glitters on a night out

I remember it well. The first night out I had after having Joe. The sheer exhilaration of putting something sparkly on, digging out the high heels and waving goodnight to the baby puke and nappies filled with plop, even if it was only for one night.

So I can fully understand why the Duchess of Cambridge went for full-on sparkle for her first evening occasion after the birth of Prince George. She looked absolutely amazing in a sensational Jenny Packham gown that shimmered from head to toe, and was teamed with equally glitzy Jimmy Choo heels.

Jenny Packham seems to becoming Kate’s Catherine Walker, her designer of choice for evening outfits. Certainly her silhouettes seem to be made with the tall, lithe Kate in mind, and this dress was just the perfect choice for the Duchess to be exclaiming ‘I’m back’ with. It bought to mind the Dynasty Di period that the Princess of Wales went through, an ultra-glam period when she outshone the brightest of Hollywood stars.

With Christmas fast approaching, now is the perfect time to invest in a sequined or sparkly dress. These are timeless pieces that never really date, especially when they have a 1930s cut like Kate’s Jenny Packham design. Perfect for all black tie events and parties over the Christmas period, the sparkly dress is a total statement piece like no other.
