yay or nay HOH dressGot a line-up of social status-boosting bashes, but no outfit to accompany these party dates? Fear not, because we’ve hunted down the perfect dress for that fashionably late entrance.

Eschewing the traditional LBD for a fun yet evening-appropriate dress is guaranteed to bag you envious stares at your next shindig, and we’re digging this House of Holland Starburst Disco dress (£330) to do just the job.

But, before jumping the (sartorial) gun and diving in with the plastic, take a step back and analyse the Starburst dress’s purchase potential. Need a little helping hand? Check out the reasons we’re saying Yay and Nay to clicking home this beauty below…


Flattering fit: The contoured bodice silhouette and high waist make for great fitting dress.

Alternative party look: Sick of sporting a yawn-inducing LBD? The Starburst Disco dress is an ideal, colour-pop alternative.

Day-to-night: Although this dress is pitch perfect for the dance floor, it wouldn’t look out of place for work or a lunch date, either, Just pair with boots and a leather jacket.


One-wear-then-despair: Given the bright starburst print is a little hard to miss, ask yourself this: will this dress see the light of day again, after its first wear?

Price: At £330, it’s not extortionate, but neither is it cheap. An expensive hit, if your social diary’s a little full…

A-line skirt: Although the form-skimming silhouette of the dress makes for a great look, the A-line skirt bottom may not be so flattering on all figures.
