Holiday Party Dresses

It’s holiday party season and I’m sharing some of my favorite dresses for all of your Christmas parties! There are also great options for New Years Eve parties as well. Most of the dresses are very budget friendly (I tend to splurge on accessories). There are lots of styling options and many of the pieces will mix and match. I tried to hit a variety of dress codes from more casual to more fancy.

For size reference I am usually a 12 in dresses and I’m 5’4″ tall. All dresses are mom – bod approved.

Sequin Dress from The Drop

I absolutely LOVE these faux wrap dresses from The Drop! It would be the perfect New Year’s Eve dress in addition holiday parties. It’s fully lined so it’s not itchy and the faux-wrap style is SO flattering! I have it in silver and pink and might grab the black, too! There’s a clasp at the bust which is also nice. I’m wearing it TTS in a large.

Prettygarden Cowl Neck Bodycon Dress

I love this Prettygarden Cowl Neck Bodycon Dress. I’m wearing it TTS in a large. The shimmer in the black is subtle enough for daytime and it comes in 8 colors.

Tiered Silver Shimmer Cocktail Dress

This pretty tiered dress comes in 5 color options but I just love the silver and black combo. I sized down to a medium but I think I would have preferred my regular size large. It’s such a swishy, fun little dress.

Sweetheart Neckline Bodycon Dress

I just love the neckline and sleeves on this dress! It’s so flattering and I feel like I look 10 lbs lighter in it. Fits TTS in a large and would be the perfect little black dress for NYE!

Guberry Velvet Faux Wrap Dress

Green velvet body con holiday party dress with a tulip hem and long sleeves from amazon.

I love this dress because it’s so stretchy and flattering. It comes in a bunch of colors but I love green for the holidays. Velvet is always a favorite of mine for Christmas outfits.  Fits TTS in a large.

Velvet Ribbed Maxi Dress

This dress gets SO many compliments! It’s such a flattering cut and it’s simply gorgeous. The flutter sleeves are such a nice touch. I’m wearing it TTS in a large.

Velvet Ribbed Cocktail Dress

This pretty ribbed dress has subtle shimmer and is so flattering! I’m wearing it TTS in a large. I love the purple but it also comes in more traditional red and green holiday colors plus neutrals like black and taupe.

Grace Karen One Shoulder Sequin Dress

One shoulder knee length black and silver sequin holiday party dress from Amazon.

I always call this time of year “sparkle season” so I HAD to include a sequin dress option. This would also be a great NYE party dress. The one shoulder style is very trendy this year. I sized up one to an XL which I usually do it body con styles.

The Drop Satin Dress

Satin puff sleeve dress by The Drop. Long sleeve holiday party dress from Amazon.

I wore the dress to an event in LA and it was a hit! It’s so easy to wear and you have the option of belting it or not belting it. I prefer the look with the belt. The material is a pretty shiny satin and it comes in several colors. Fit TTS in a large for me.

Kirundo Metallic Gold Polka Dot Dress

Long sleeve black holiday party dress with metallic gold polka dots from Amazon.

I love this cute dress for parties but it’s also conservative enough for daytime events. I even wore it to church. I like that it has a but of shine with the metallic polka dots but isn’t too over the top. Fits TTS in a large for me and is so pretty.

Alex Evenings Little Black Dress

If you have a fancier event to go to this dress is a knockout! I love the sleeve sparkles and it’s such a flattering cut. I’m wearing it TTS in a 12.

DKNY Long Sleeve Sequin Surplice Faux Wrap Dress

Long sleeve navy blue sequin DKNY holiday party dress with Loeffler Randall clutch and Badgley Mischka heels.

This pretty DKNY sequin dress was actually my second choice for an event in LA but it was SO cold out that I decided to go with the long sleeve option. I’m so glad I did! It fits TTS and is so pretty.

Off the Shoulder Ribbed Dress

Off the shoulder ribbed midi dress. Black holiday party dress from amazon. Sam Edelman hazel pumps and JW pei croc purse.

I love this off the shoulder dress for when you want a little bit more elevated look but still super comfortable. It’s a ribbed material and very stretchy. I’m wearing it TTS in a 12-14. I photographed it without shape wear to give a honest view off how it fits but in real life I would wear shape wear under it to smooth things out.


Hopefully this helped you find the perfect holiday party dress for your festivities this year! If you need gift ideas, make sure to check out my gift guides.
