It’s the most wonderful time of the year (especially if you happen to love a good excuse to dress up!). From the office party to friends’ festive fiestas, these frocks will see you through a jam-packed social season, in style.
Romeo & Juliet Couture Lace Dress
Eva by Eva Franco Keller Dress
It’s hard to pick a favorite part of this dress. From its flattering fit-and-flare silhouette to the elevated look of the black overlay, it’s a real winner.
To buy: $155, zappos.com.
American Eagle Outfitters Velvet Tie Dress
White House Black Market Jacquard High-Low Dress
Florals may seem like more of a spring motif, but when they’re done up in a deep ruby red and a luxurious jacquard fabric, you can consider them fitting for any festivity.
To buy: $180, whitehouseblackmarket.com.
Ann Taylor Shimmer Jacquard Flare Dress
Go for the gold, wardrobe-wise at least. A perfect pick for the office shindig, this dress shines under a blazer during the day, but looks even better bare-shouldered when the clock strikes five.
To buy: $179, anntaylor.com.
Target Sleeveless Fit and Flare Dress
Flattering on all figures, a not-too-deep V-neck and a flared skirt—not to mention a pretty metallic shimmer—make this waist-whittling style a better-than-basic little black dress.
To buy: $30, target.com.
ASOS Embellished Trim Midi Dress
Just because it’s the holidays doesn’t mean your sartorial options are limited to ornament hues like silver and gold (or red and green for that matter). Bejeweled trim adds seasonally-appropriate appeal to this dusty rose number.
To buy: $83, asos.com.
