LONDON, January 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Don't know what to wear for your next glam evening do? Don't panic - Matalan are here to offer their advice on the best, most on trend outfits perfect for partying the night away in style.

During this party season choosing party dresses is easy as there are an abundance of gorgeous styles, so you can pretty much take your pick.


A key look for festive fashion this season has to be peplum - it's classy, simple and so statement. The tulip shape will frame your figure perfectly creating a gorgeously feminine outline. Berry is the colour of the season so steer away from the safety of your usual LBD and embrace the deep reds and purple tones of this stunning shade.

Panel Dresses

Panel dresses have come into their own this season. With a distinctly 80s feel to them, this colour block fashion is incredibly flattering as the panels take the eye down the body. Optical illusion panels are also great for cheating your way to a flawless silhouette - even if you do eat one too many mince pies!


Nothing says glamorous like sequins and glitter, in fact, glamorous embellishments are the best way to dress up in any outfit. If you're unsure of the dress code to your NYE event then sequined tops are a great way to add just the right touch of glitz and glam without going over the top. Team with dark jeans and heels for effortlessly sassy style that's perfect for both dinner parties and dancing the night away!
