5 Holiday Party Dresses for Every Function

Chances are you’re headed to at least one holiday party in the next coming days, and that’s if you haven’t already been to one! If you’re looking for some holiday party dresses, here are five styles that you can wear to your office holiday party, charity gala, family affair, winter wedding, or just partying it up with your friends.

Holiday Party Dress for the Office

What to Wear to a Holiday Party, office holiday party outfit, sweater under dress, Lark and Ro cashmere sweater, red bodycon dress, sequin heels, grey coat

For a seamless transition from work to play that’ll attract just the right amount of attention from your bosses, layer a sweater or turtleneck underneath a form-fitting dress. The dress will show off your figure but the sweater will soften the look so you still look classy and professional. Turn up the fun with a pair of shoes that sparkle.

Holiday Party Dress for a Charity Gala

Long red formal dress perfect for Valentine's Day or a winter wedding

This is also the season for giving, so if you’re invited to a formal holiday party or charity gala, don a long red gown in a stretchy fabric that is both elegant and comfortable. Just add a faux fur stole and see through heels and you’re ready for your grand entrance. Best part is you can rewear this for Valentine’s Day!

Family-Friendly Holiday Party Dress

When hanging out with the family, or for any occasion where you want to be a bit more modest, try a jersey dress with a bit of holiday shimmer. This kind of fabric flows off your body so you have enough space to indulge in dinner! Pair the simple dress with a statement faux fur coat for an outfit that looks expensive.

Holiday Party Dress for a Winter Wedding

If you have friends getting married in a winter wonderland wedding, go with a classic black lace dress that hugs your figure. Pair it with a pair of mid-heel black pumps that are comfy for dancing the night away and a sequin clutch!

Holiday Party Dress for a Night Out with Your Friends

For the party with your friends and your boo, wear a simple sheath dress with an electrifying slit. It’s way more comfortable than deep v’s or cut outs, but just as sexy, if not sexier! Keep the rest of your look simple and understated, and top your look with a camel coat that will be easy to find at coat check.

  1. I like the 1st, 2nd red dress and the last black dress. I don’t go to a lot of events but those would be a nice selection in my wardrobe. ?
