It’s officially holiday party season. From office party’s, getting together with friends, as well as Christmas and New Year, it means many of us are on the hunt for that perfect party dress. As for me, I’m on the look out for a nice dress to wear to the nutcracker as I’ll most likely end up wearing pants for Christmas and New Year.

I usually stick to black when it comes to dresses. I do like for my holiday dresses to have some sort of detail on them like lace, or embellishment on them to make them feel a little more festive. I’m kind of a sucker for stars so of course I was a fan of this star embellished dress. I also prefer my dresses to have a sleeve, preferably long sleeve. I tend to get cold often so I don’t want to worry about having a light jacket on.

While I do love my little black dresses, there were quite a few red dresses that caught my eye. This red shift dress with an asymmetrical hem seems like the perfect Christmas party dress! Although this strapless one is great if you prefer a body con fit.

Of course, you can’t have a holiday party without a little (or a lot) of sequins so I’ve included some of those in this list as well. I love this white, knee length dress. It has strategically placed silver sequins around the waist which creates a flattering look. For an all black look, I like this a-line dress that also has long sleeves. If you are looking for something with just a touch of sparkle then check out this dress.
