Party Dresses for the Holiday Season

December 17, 2018


It seems like this year, more than years past, I have so many reasons to dress up for the holidays. Between company parties, friend gatherings, holiday open houses, weddings, and family events, my heels have been working overtime. My go-to dressy outfits usually consist of a blouse, pants (leather, satin, etc.), and a pair of pumps, but I thought it was time to update my dress collection this year. I picked up this J.Crew wrap dress last minute for a wedding and I’ve been loving how versatile it’s been this season.

There are so many amazing, festive dresses out there right now. You know me, I typically stick to my neutrals, but I like the idea of wearing a deep, satiny green or a sequined number this year, too. And you cannot go wrong with metallic. If I’m going with something more simple and classic, I love spicing things up with a pair of statement earrings like these gold hoops.

Depending on your NYE plans, I think any of these dresses could be worn for Christmas and again for a New Year’s Eve party. I’ve also been loving dressing down a formal look with boots and an edgy jacket or blazer. The more ways you can wear it, the better in my book! Below is a collection of my favorite options right now.
