Holiday Party Dresses

Each week Sociology of Style shares a few resources that are on our image radar (but probably aren’t on yours — yet).  Know something we should check out? Let us know! Buy one festive dress and wear it to all your events this season.  Here are some options for every budget:

Topshop Metallic Seam Shift Dress: This number’s super-flattering retro silhouette and hint of sparkle make it a perfect holiday option. It’s sleeveless, so style with a fitted blazer or a cozy sweater.

 

 

Nasty Gal Disco Daze Dress: Metallic threading and a peek-a-boo cutout sound threatening, but this high-collar wrap-top dress is more subtle than you’d think. You’ll still be a knockout, though.

 

 

Aqua Sleeveless Velvet Dress: Here’s a different take on a holiday staple. This velvet wrap piece shimmers between different shades, so you’ll be even more titillating than tinsel.

 

 

ASOS Tulip Dress in Jacquard: Tis the season for jacquard. Holidays feel like the most appropriate time to be ornamental and outrageous, so hop on the baroque trend by taking this one out on the town.

 

 

  Erin Fetherston Embellished Dress: It’s not really a holiday party dress list without sequins, is it? We love the unexpected transition of teal and silver on this, along with the sheer, nude-colored back.

 

 

Alice & Olivia Jule Cap Sleeve Peplum Dress: This rosey peplum dress, printed in a holiday-ready floral ruby, is sweet and romantic with a dash of defiance in its sheer back panels.
