30 Epic Party Pieces Our Team Has in Their Shopping Baskets

Sponsor Content Created With THE OUTNET.COM

We've all been in the situation where we've taken a week (okay, sometimes even three) to plan a single outfit for an anticipated soirée only to find that another guest is wearing exactly the same one. The shock! The horror! The insult! But what if we were to tell you there's a way you can decrease the chances of said situation happening? You would jump at it, of course, because party season is almost here, and no one—unless planned for a strategic twinning Instagram post—wants to turn up wearing the same sequin dress. This is where The Outnet comes in to save us all.

Aside from the obvious benefit of excellent designer pieces at a discounted price, all the items on site are cherry-picked from past seasons, meaning the chances of someone snapping up the same find are less likely.

At a festive shindig in the chic and floral confines of Annabel's in Mayfair, alongside the likes of Millie Mackintosh, Laura Whitmore and influencers including Jessie Bush, Bettina Looney and Lizzie Hadfield, we were treated to a sneak peek of all the best pieces before they hit the virtual rails on The Outnet. Our findings will provide you with a selection of go-to items when you're faced with hundreds and hundreds of sparkly, "look at me" options. You can find the whole range of pieces on The Outnet's Party Edit section (we're talking Dolce and Gabbana heels, Elie Saab velvet gowns and Attico satin slips), but our concise, editor-approved pieces are below.

These are the heels you'll get back out year after year, the bags you'll have unconditional love for and the dresses you'll make one hell of an entrance in. Say hello to party season's VIP guests.
