From office parties to Christmas to New Year's Eve, we have a chic, budget-friendly dress for every holiday occasion. What to wear to that festive office party? How to dress for Thanksgiving? We have it covered.
1. Sparkly Dress
This sparkly, slinky dress looks like it was made for a New Years Eve party.
Jones New York, $179; Jones New York Women's Swirl Sequin Sheath, amazon.com.
2. One-Shoulder Dress
A one-shoulder dress is a great way to show a little skin over the holidays without revealing too much.
BCBGeneration, $108; One Shoulder Dress by BCBGeneration, piperlime.com.
3. Sheath Dress
The sheath dress is a classic shape that will never go out of style. If you're looking to splurge on a party dress to last you through New Years, this style is your best bet.
French Connection, $168; Angela Lace Dress, frenchconnection.com.
4. Fit N' Flare Dress
The fit n' flare is one of the most universally flattering dress shapes. It can both emphasize an already small waist and create one where it didn't exist before. This dress is perfect for most holiday occasions.
The Limited, $98; Full Skirt Tank Dress, thelimited.com.
5. Wrap Dress
A wrap dress is a perfect choice for an office holiday party. Beware of low-cut versions, though; you can use some fashion tape to make a revealing dress a little less so, or have a snap installed at the tailor.
Ann Taylor, $128; 3/4 Sleeve Knit Wrap Dress, anntaylor.com.
6. Shift Dress
A shift dress will keep you both looking polished and feeling comfortable during festive feasts. There's nothing worse than sitting down to a delicious holiday feast in a body-clinging dress.
Talbots, $179; Satin-back Crepe Dress, talbots.com.
7. Sweater Dress
When you don't have to look too formal, a sweater dress is a great option. Pair it with tights for optimal warmth. Caroling, anyone?
Avenue, $69.99; Marilyn Collar Belted Sweater Dress, avenue.com.
8. Shirt Dress
Shirt dresses are a great option for when you want to be casual, but still look put together. If you're spending a holiday at home but want to look nice in family pictures, this is your dress.
L.L. Bean Signature, $149; Wool Knit Dress, llbeansignature.com.
