One of the biggest trends in party dresses for SS11 is the blue dress. It is bold, it is bright and if you wear it to a party you can be sure that you will definitely not go unnoticed. It was a key look at several of the designer fashion shows back in the September fashion weeks and now it is also filling the high street shops and online fashion retailers.
Mesh Tube Dress – Rare Fashions
There are all sorts of blue dress to choose from. You can opt for a simple minimalist style or a more elaborate style with ruffles, frills or laser cut detail, the key to this look is to choose a really bold shade of royal blue.
Unfortunately the blue party dress is not for everyone. Such a strong colour will not look good with every hair colour and skin tone. Generally speaking it will look best on those who have a high degree of contrast between their hair and skin tone and a cool complexion (so undertones of blue, pink and purple). For those who blue is not their colour, there are plenty of other choices of party dresses for SS11.

The cream or white dress is set to be another key look with all sorts of delicate detail including lace, embroidery and applique. These colour looks great on those with brown or black hair and olive skin but it also suits a range of other colourings. They also look great on those with a suntan. One tip when choosing your cream or white dress, if you are going to a disco with lights be sure to test the dress for transparency first and make sure that your under wear is not visible.
Biba Asymmetric one shoulder maxi dress – Biba
Red party dresses are another eyecatching look that will be big in SS11. There is something iconic about a red dress that is captured so well in the classic love song ‘lady in red’ by Chris De Burgh. One shouldered and draped styles of red dress are particularly popular and a very flattering choice. Red dresses look great on those with blond or brown hair but look best on those with warm skin tones (undertones of orange, olive and yellow), there are plenty of different shades of red to choose from so try a few different options to see which suits you best.
Orange Pleated Swing Dress – Miss Selfridge
Orange again is a great colour for those with warm skin tones and works particularly well for those with mid brown hair colours. Bright orange is one of the most popular shades for the summer but if you are unsure of whether you can pull it off, there are a whole range of coral and peach shades which are also really on trend.
If accessorising a bright party dresses leaves you wondering where to start, there are a few easy options. Nude shoes are a great investment as they work with just about any colour and will help to elongate your legs. For the rest of your accessories you can choose to keep it neutral or go for the clash. A bright orange clutch bag with a blue dress or a purple bag with an orange dress will make your party dress look even more eye catching.
