The holiday season is nearly upon us, and that means one thing: parties. No matter what traditions you celebrate, I can guarantee the next two months will be filled with cheery music, festive decor, and lots of bubbly on deck. If you want to avoid a stressful time getting ready, though, its always helpful to have a fabulous dress (or two) in your closet. Trust me, I’ve been there.
Traditionally, a great holiday dress brings a high level of glitz and glamour to match the spirit of this special time of year. I’m talking, of course, about rhinestones, sequins, and embellishments, but also velvet, silk, tulle, and every festive fabric in between.
When shopping for the perfect holiday dress, consider how fancy you want to get. Do you want to go for a mini, a maxi, or somewhere in between? Depending on your style, you may prefer a more understated, elegant party look (i.e. your timeless LBD) or you may want to go bold in something akin to the Paco Rabanne metallic disc dress Audrey Hepburn wore in 1967’s Two for the Road.
There are endless options out there, which is great — but it can also make finding the right one a tad overwhelming. So, to make life a little easier, I curated a selection of the best styles on the market. Ahead, find 24 party-ready dresses for your entire social calendar.
