Christmas is hurtling ever closer and our thoughts have turned towards the all-important question: What should we wear to this year’s Christmas parties?
Naturally, ‘tis the season for maximum sparkle. The ideal dress for the festive season is something classic and glamorous, that won’t look out of place at either the office Christmas party, or the last pub hurrah with friends before everyone heads home for the holidays.
Marks & Spencer’s rarely disappoints, and the retailer has come through in a big way with the dress of the season.
The M&S Collection Sequin Midi Dress has become a massive hit with shoppers after it was seen on Hannah Waddingham in this year’s star-studded M&S Christmas advert.
Why we rate it
The sleeveless midi-length dress has all the features of a great classic party dress you'll wear for years the come, from the figure-flattering silhouette to black hue.
Priced at just £59, it’s no surprise that this show-stopper has already flown off the shelves, with 60% of M&S’s stock selling out in the first week since it launched, so you'll have to be quick if you want to snap it up in your size.
Comfort is also a priority with this dress. The added stretch in the garment lets you breathe easy and feel your best.
In terms of care, it is recommended that this dress be laundered in a 40C delicate wash and hang up to dry. There’s no need to tumble dry, dry clean or iron, making maintenance a total breeze.
What the reviews say
As the dress is brand new, there are only six reviews on M&S’s website currently. However, most of the reviews rank it four or five stars, and shoppers are overall very satisfied with how glamorous it is while remaining at an affordable price point.
“Feels good and definitely worth the price. It is longer on than advertised. Full length on me but I liked that. Perfect for those evening events.”
“One of the best value Christmas dresses out there. Well done M&S.”
“WOW it is a brilliant dress, fits well and looks amazing on. I had been looking for a dress for New Year as on a cruise and after being disappointed with other makes I have tried on, this is the one.”
