Festive holiday dresses to make you shine.

It’s party season! So, if you don’t have the ultimate dress that you can wear for cocktails out or at that special holiday party, it’s time to buckle down and go shopping. To help you start your search, we’ve rounded up 5 festive party dresses.

Festive party dresses, babydoll

1. Duchess Babydoll Dress

This Victorian-inspired babydoll dress will wow anyone who looks in your direction. This dress features an allover floral texture, a straight hem, and ruching at the bust. And unlike a lot of seasonal party dresses, this dress has comfortable, warming sleeves for days. Dress it up with funky platforms, or down with a pair of knee-high boots. Priced at $250.

Festive party dresses, turtleneck

2. Velvet Alba Dress

And here’s yet another dress that screams, “I don’t have to show a lot of skin to be sexy.” This slim-fitting turtleneck dress is American made and is constructed with velvet. This piece also is amazing for women with long legs because it has an eye-grabbing slit. Wear with booties, similar to those pictured above. Priced at $260

festive party dresses, glitter

3. Alberto Makali Cocktail Dress

Sparkle and shine in this glittery cocktail dress. This piece is in excellent condition (bonus), so you know you’ll be happy when you take it out of the package. While this dress would look amazing at any holiday party, we especially like it as a New Year’s Eve dress. Wear with simple, black velvet shoes and ring in the New Year! Priced at $52.49.

Festive party dresses, green

4. Bebe Cocktail Dress

Celebrate the holiday in a classy, green cocktail dress. We’d pair this frock with a pair of platform, gold glitter heels to really get in the seasonal spirit. Priced at $33.99.

Festive holiday dresses, gold dress

5. BCBGMAXAZRIA Cocktail Dress

Glimmer and glisten like all the stars in the sky with this gold dress. I love its high front and shocking, plunging back. The best part about this dress is that it was originally priced at $338 but because it is sold at ThredUp, it’s going for $65.99. We suggest wearing this cute number with a pair of green pumps.
