Cocktail dresses for the Holiday Parties  


The holiday season means lots of parties. Do you know what holiday dress you’ll be wearing? If you’re stumped on what to wear to your next seasonal soiree, get some inspiration from some of our favorite cocktail dresses. From sequined to strapless, there’s bound to be a look here you love. A cocktail dress is a must-have in any fashionista’s wardrobe. Vibrantly-colored dresses with sophisticated embellishments are very popular now. A look at the runway collection of any major fashion designer and fashion house will show that the hemlines of these dresses are getting higher. This gives you the perfect opportunity to show off your long legs and your gorgeous summer tan. There are many designs and patterns of cocktail dresses, but you need to make sure that you choose the one that flatters your body structure and skin tone. Short dresses are getting more vibrant and colorful, with the use of the color blocking technique and lots of pleating and ruffles.

Going Short

When you want to make a statement, choose a short dress with origami details. These types of dresses are structured and take inspiration from architecture. Pleats and folds around the bust, shoulders, and skirt make origami dresses very alluring. One of the best designs in origami dresses is a bubble dress with petal-like pleats and folds on the skirt. Colors that are in fashion for such dresses are white, turquoise, aubergine, and dusty pink. An origami dress makes a bold statement, so keep your accessories minimum.

Seasonal sparkle

You’re guaranteed to be the star of the show when you make your grand entrance wearing this stunning sequined cocktail dress (, $237). The entire form-fitting cocktail dress is covered in delicate, sparkly sequins, making it an ideal choice for holiday parties. We love the sleek, sexy silhouette, round neckline and eye-catching jade color. Pair with black heels and a clutch to let this holiday dress get the attention it deserves.

Gorgeous in gold

What better time to go for the gold when it comes to dressing up than around the holidays? Turn heads and look party-ready pronto in this dazzling gold dress (Mod Cloth, $105). The striking gold-covered cocktail dress is fully lined with ruffled organza visible beneath the on-trend asymmetrical hem. Pair this pretty piece with black peep-toe pumps, a cocktail ring and a bold, smoky eye for maximum glamour.

Beautiful bow

If you want to opt for sheer elegance, we suggest turning your attention to this understated but ultra-stylish Rachel Zoe design (Neiman Marcus, $350) in trendy winter white. The real star of the show here is the structured bow at the contoured waist giving this dress a girlish charm to balance out the more sophisticated hue.

Lace & silk

Get ready to make a seasonal style statement in this gorgeous lace and silk strapless dress (, $400). Ravishing red lace sits atop an ivory silk underlay while a scalloped hem and gathered waist give this dress an elegant, sophisticated look perfect for any upscale soirees you attend this season. Pair this holiday dress with a statement necklace and an oversized clutch for a chic holiday look.

Not that little black dress again!

When you get invited for a cocktail party and the theme is to wear something elegant, the first thing you would think of doing is go shopping! But, if you don’t have a particular design or color in mind, you are just going to end up buying a simple black dress, which you think would look elegant. Everyone wears black at parties, as it is a common understanding that black is an evening color. Every woman needs a flattering little black dress for the holidays, and we suggest going for one with a little more pizzazz. We’re currently coveting this fun and flirty Betsey Johnson babydoll strapless dress (, $239) in black chiffon. The party-ready dress features a full skirt with triple tiered sequin trim ruffles and structured boning at the bust. All you need are some pretty platform pumps and some gold accessories for added holiday sparkle.


We are sure, with such a variety of elegant cocktail dresses to choose from, you will make the finest choice. So, get that killer one and set all eyes in the party on you!
