It’s time to bust out that sequin mini dress, lady-like sheath, or cozy yet chic sweater dress that you bought seasons ago while yearning for a more festive occasion. Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s Eve, etc., are upon us, and holiday party dresses are the perfect way to celebrate.
If a new dress is on your radar or you’re looking for tips to spruce up an oldie but goodie, we’ve got a number of great suggestions for you. Browse our picks below, and get ready to be inspired.
Obviously, it’s not a holiday party without sequins. The Sequin Midi Dress from Dress the Population is winter white at its finest. Reminiscent of a sparkling snowflake, you’ll feel cozy and festive in this ensemble. It’s also classic enough to wear for years to come. Keep it classy and pair the piece with shiny leather booties, sparkly earrings, a sleek pony, rosy cheeks, and a cocktail ring.
A little more casual but still super on trend, the Cold Shoulder Midi Dress from Felicity and Coco is perfect for the holiday season. With three-quarter sleeves featuring a stylish bare shoulders silhouette and rich emerald hue, this dress looks pretty with gold jewelry and a deep red lip. Plus, by adding a structured blazer and cozy tights, you can transform the piece to be a good fit for the office.
What’s the point of wearing a pretty dress if it isn’t functional too? Enter J.Crew’s Lace Dress with Pockets. The dress features a boyish collar, scalloped hem, and pockets that are great for stashing your phone or lipstick. Clearly, this piece is as convenient as it is fun. To not distract from the intricate details of the lace, pair the dress with a low bun and a dewy face. To complete your outfit, slip on a pair of stilettos in a bold red or, even more daring, yellow.
If you’re really trying to make a statement, then the Club Monaco Brionia Feather Dress might just be the holiday look for you. Featuring a full feathered skirt in a stunning shade of navy, the dress is classic with a twist, and you’re sure to get a ton of compliments. Whether it’s silver or gold, be sure to add a little bling to the look to play up its playfulness. A pretty pink lip and winged eyeliner are good additions as well.
This stunning burgundy dress from Self-Portrait is an obvious holiday party dress pick. Featuring a lace bodice with a pleated chiffon skirt, the Symm Lace and Chiffon Midi Dress is feminine and fierce. Although the dress may seem complicated, there’s plenty of styling options. A velvet cross body bag, Mary Jane’s, and gold ear cuff all look fantastic with the dress. For beauty, go all out with a matching deep burgundy lip.
