Top Buys: Party Dresses

December—and party season!—has arrived, dear readers, which means you’re probably knee-deep in invitations to cocktail celebrations, holiday soirees, and festive family gatherings. The best part, of course, is that now you have an excuse to buy a brand new party dress (or two)! Happily, we’ve rounded up a slew of perfect party dresses to help get you in the shopping spirit. Whether you’re looking for a classy cocktail dress for your office holiday party, a shimmering sequined number to ring in the new year, or a bold mini dress to wow your friends and family, we have pulled five fabulous frocks for all your party needs. Check out our five picks below.

To start, let’s talk cocktail parties—we’re particularly partial to bold and bright cocktail dresses, so we’ve picked out two perfect options to choose between. Thread Social’s Asymmetric Silk Bow Dress ($198.40) immediately caught our eye, thanks in part to its jewel-toned green fabric and pretty pleats. We also love the way the black belt helps to define the waist, resulting in a super-flatting silhouette. We’re equally besotted with Taylor Dresses’ Bengaline Party Dress ($198). The oversized ruffles on the neckline give this dress an interesting twist without going over-the-top, although the fire-engine red fabric is sure to make you stand out! You can pair both these options with similar accessories—try a black clutch and a pair of simple black platform pumps.

If you want something a little more glamorous, we highly endorse trying a shimmering and sparkling dress. ModCloth’s Brings The Party Dress ($114.99) lives up to its name—the silver-with-a-hint-of-blue sequins will definitely turn heads. Wear it with black platform pumps and, if it’s cold, a pair of opaque black tights. For a vintage-inspired vibe, we like Kate Moss For Topshop’s Iconic Heavy Beaded Dress ($270)—not only does it have plenty of flapper flair, but it is inspired by a piece from Kate’s own closet. For that we reason, we recommend taking styling tips from Kate herself—pair it with patent Mary Jane pumps and just-messy-enough bed hair. Finally, we adore Bird By Juicy Couture’s Anya Sequined Dress ($500)—it is perfect if you want a luxe look that is a little more low-key than our other sequined options. Once again, we recommend keeping it on the simple side—an unfussy pair of black pumps is perfect. If you need a coat to keep you warm, try an oversized black faux fur—you’ll be dressed to kill.
