When it comes to dresses fit for every party scene, a girl needs options. And the more choice, the better.
The Spring/Summer 2014 collections on the high street and online have exactly that, and to save you time we've lined up some pretty fabulous styles so you can get your party dress fix in an instant.
Print, pastels, monochrome, stripe and sequinned styles are just a few looks that will have you turning heads at all your diary events this season. Think dresses fit for wedding-going, hen do-ing, tottering across to the races or just styling out in the sunshine.
If you're going for a serious splurge (you NEED all eyes on you) then Matches and Browns have some designer threads to fall head over heels for. These are your investment dresses - and if you opt for something classic - guaranteed it'll last forever.
Otherwise head over to Whistles, Karen Millen, River Island or Zara for a catwalk-inspired look that's just as statement-making but with a way more realistic price tag.
Minis, maxis, knee-length and kick-out styles are all up for grabs so check out this shopping edit for some inspiration. All you need now are the accessories to go with - a colour block heel, a fabulous clutch bag and an all-important red lipstick...
