PARTY QUEEN / Dec 15, 2022


The holidays are fast approaching. For the fashionistas out there, this is the season to bring out your best holiday dresses and strut your stuff!

In our opinion, there's no such thing as overdressing during the holidays. You can wear formal holiday dresses to a nice dinner or a night out on the town—and nobody will bat an eye. It's your time to shine (literally).

We assume you already have your calendar completely booked up! That means it's time to get your outfits lined up. And we’re here to show you some stylish options.

🎊 Four Must-See Holiday Dresses for This Season 💖

Calling all trendsetters! Here are four holiday party dresses that will make you stand out at any event.

1. Black V-neck dress with metallic accents

No matter what time of year it is, or where you're going, you can always wear a sleek black dress. It'll never go out of style. But to turn it into a festive holiday dress, you need to add some sparkle (Duh!).

Here's a pro tip from us: choose a dress that has metallic accents along the narrowest part of your waist. Like a belt, this will cinch and accentuate your hourglass shape. It's practical but also very stylish for a holiday party dress.

If you're going to a fancier event, we recommend opting for a longer length for your formal holiday dress. If you were hoping to show off more of your fabulous body, not to worry. Look for a dress with straps or cutouts in the back! It strikes the perfect balance for office holiday parties, dinners, shows, weddings, and more!

2. Red mermaid dress with rhinestones

Headed to a grand event—like a gala, fancy Christmas party, or exclusive New Year's party? This formal holiday dress is for you!

Of course, this dress hits one of the classic holiday colors: red. But choosing a brighter hue instead of a darker one will really make you stand out.

You should know by now that we love a little bling, especially for holiday dresses. With embellishments from head to toe, this gown certainly kicks it up a few notches—and we love it! Plus, the rhinestones follow the mermaid silhouette, which will slim and lengthen your figure, and cut across the waist to make it look smaller! Marilyn Monroe, is that you?

Because this is a spaghetti strap holiday dress, we recommend considering a cute faux fur coat to complete the look. Throw your hair up in a clean bun to show off your shoulders and neck—and a cute pair of earrings, of course!

3. Green mermaid dress with corset bodice 

This holiday dress features another go-to holiday color: green. Again, it offers a brighter hue instead of a dark shade to give you a showstopping look.

If you want to bring some sex appeal to your holiday event, this dress is it! A sweetheart neckline, off-the-shoulder sleeves, corset bodice, and high slit in the skirt all work together to create a fiery look!

We recommend playing with textures and fabrics for your holiday dress to show off your personal style. Sequins, lace, satin, feathers, and tulle can all be found in a fashionista's playbook. This season, you can totally mix and match. In fact, we encourage it!

Because this holiday dress has off-the-shoulder sleeves, we recommend sweeping your hair to the side to make this sexy look effortless.

4. Gold strapless babydoll dress 

Ladies, don't worry. We didn't forget about gold! This color is a holiday staple and perfect for a holiday party dress.

Bringing the gals together for a night out on the town? Buying tickets to a show? Ringing in the New Year with your beau? This gold babydoll dress has your name on it.

Its length makes it playful yet sultry. The sweetheart neckline is romantic yet seductive. As Steve Carrell says in Crazy, Stupid Love, it's the perfect combination of sexy and cute.

Because it's a short dress, you can have a lot of fun with how you style your look. However, you can never go wrong with nude heels, a high ponytail, and red lips. All that's missing now is a glass of champagne.
