Holiday Dresses to Play In

5 Dec

By Whitney

It’s holiday party time and as promised, we are featuring some of our favorite party dresses for the upcoming season.  Lots of sparkle this winter so step up your make up to match the glam of your dress!

I love this dress for so many reasons.  The dark sequins add to the festiveness but aren’t too loud, the v neckline is a soft v and will flatter, and while it is on the shorter side, it balances the length out with a longer sleeve.  Despite what the description suggests, I wouldn’t bother with a statement necklace here since there is so much going on with the sequins.  I’d stick to a basic necklace (or bare neck) and a long earring.  It also comes in a neutral color for those of you lucky enough to not be born pale and blonde.

Antik Batik Lisa Embellished Crepe Dress – $227 (was $650)

Hi, I’m the perfect party dress.  Wear me with a low side ponytail or a big poofy bun and you’re the prettiest girl at the party.

Polished Platinum Dress – $388

One of the more perfect sequin dresses that I have ever seen. This dress epitomizes “cool” to me. The uneven hemline (and cuffs), rose gold sequins and the dress shape itself is really NYC wintertime to me…Love.

Foley & Corinna Paisley Paillete Dress – $525

Another metallic pick, this Tibi dress looks flattering and comfortable for a night out as well.  I love the v back…super sexy without being too much.

Tibi Metallic Jersey Dress – $350

And now we revert to my favorite color…black.  The decorative neckline here screams for your hair up in a great poofy bun or updo of some sort. I love how simple the cut is and how old school glam you’ll look.

Mikael Aghal Ruffled Satin Dress – $133

Are you tan enough that you can rock ivory without a spray tan visit?  Oh you can?  I hate you.  This adorable dress with uber thick matte black tights and black patent mary janes would be just darling.

Asos Pique Fit and Flare Dress with Bow Back – $91

This versatile (and super sweet) piece is a good understated dress that will take you from holiday parties (gray tights) to a wedding in the spring and back again to a fall fete.

Savoy Dress – $220

Pair with black tights and some super high black patent pumps…you’ll be the pop of color amongst the grays and blacks but be conservative enough at the same to not feel uncomfortable.  I love how the banded waist and pleated detail will make you look perfectly curvy.   This dress will take you way past the holiday season and into early spring and fall.

Shoshanna Silk Dress – $350
