Christmas party dress guide - 50s: Classy and colourful

We've compiled the best of the high street

With the party season upon us, now is the perfect time to treat yourself to a new frock.

But with so many dresses on the high street to choose from, it's difficult to know where to start.

Let take the strain out of hunting down a sure-fire headturner with our celeb-inspired dress guide. We've even organised the party wear according to age.

In your 50s

Nancy Shevell, 51, likes to spice up her look with colour but sticks to demure shapes that flatter her enviable figure.




Copy Lady McCartney's style in Mary Portas' traffic-stopping red dress featuring a deep V.

The 'queen of shops', who is 51 too, has also created an elegant green animal print shift dress that pulls you in in the right places.

For instant wow factor, look no further than Hobbs' fucsia number, and the waist bow detail is also very flattering.

If you're really in the mood for some festive fun, Fennwright Manson offers a colourful range of partywear.

The capped sleeves on this beautiful pansy motif dress are an elegant touch that will make you the talk of any social gathering.
