Party Dress Trends

Hit the holiday party circuit in dresses that are fit to fête. Playful colors and all that shimmers will have you looking the part for every soirée. Take into account what makes you feel your most confident, plus the dress code, and BOOM: outfit perfected. Well, almost—you’ll also need the extras. But first: choose your must-have holiday party dress trend.

La Vie En Rose

There’s room in your wardrobe for more than just a classic red and green color palette. The best party dresses this season are done in unexpected holiday hues. Our favorite: pink! Go for the candy-coated pastel color to sweeten up your party dress routine. If you’re all about the luxe factor, gild yourself in rose gold. A combination of two trends (pink and metallic), it gives glamour but in a sleek way that feels right at home when it’s time to party. We know you’d never miss an opportunity to get your shine on, and this metallic take on the prettiest shade makes any party dress instantly more fun.

Midas Touch

Metallic styles offer a more modern take on shine. Silver and gold are familiar faves, but bronze is the new and need-now metallic on the block. Whether done in jacquard fabric, lurex threads or metallic dots, the cool finish promises to glisten all through the night. Regardless of the color, think of metallic styles as the gold standard for holiday party dresses.

Time to Shine

No better way to embrace the merry-and-bright feeling than going all-out glam, and boy, do our party dresses deliver the sparkle! From embellished minis to glittering gowns, you best believe when you walk in the room wearing a bedazzled stunner, you’ll make the whole place shimmer. Nothing says “ready to party” quite like sequins that catch the light with your every step (and every move on the dance floor). Whether they add a pop of interest to an LBD or completely cover the party dress, there’s no shortage of sparkle to be had. Rhinestones? Yes, please! With a knack for standing out, the sparkling detail promises a good time. Moral of the story: always RSVP “yes” to holiday shine.

Flattering Party Dresses

The best party dresses all have one thing in common: they make you feel confident while wearing them! Make your entrance in a silhouette that you’re comfortable in (dance-ability is always a bonus). From skirt length to overall fit, the best party dresses for your body type have all the details to make you look as good as you feel while wearing them. The figure flattery begins on top, with the neckline. Let’s talk about a fave that flatters all shapes and sizes: the sweetheart neckline. It’s all elegance, creating a shape reminiscent of a heart (hence the name). Plus, it enhances your bustline and creates the perfect frame for statement earrings or a necklace! We’re also all about the V-neck for this same reason, though deep plunging cuts reveal more of your bold side. Ruching will forever be a go-to for party dressing. It has a smoothing effect that accentuates your shape and creates an instantly figure-flattering silhouette. Guaranteed, it’s a detail that’ll have you turning heads. Ruching hugs every body shape like a glove, making it a universally-flattering choice for getting ready to celebrate. For all our petite girlies (read: 5’3” and under), mini dresses are your best friend. Serve up a legs-for-days look with a silhouette that hits above the knee! Add a pair of heels and you’ve really created the illusion of long legs. Fitted, twirly or somewhere in the middle, make maximum impact with a fun and flirty mini party dress.

Dress for the Occasion

With so many events to attend and friends to see, the sheer number of party dresses you need can be overwhelming. When in doubt, let the dress code guide you. Get all dressed up for a gathering with your coworkers in an office-approved party dress—you might reach for a midi instead of a mini. Our sleek metallics with subdued shimmer would make you a standout at any work festivity without being over the top. If you’re hosting a holiday get-together, rule is you need to be wearing one of the best party dresses of the evening. Reach for something extra-special like sequins or a bold and bright color, and all eyes will be on you. As you count down to midnight, shine bright in a dress just as—if not MORE—sparkling than the NYE ball itself! Now’s the time to pull out all the stops in the most glitz-and-glam party dress you can find. Don’t worry: has no shortage of party dresses that know how to ring in the new year right.

All the Trimmings

The best party dresses get even better with the right accessories. Statement earrings, luxe necklaces and embellished shoes take your look to the next level. Don’t forget a super cute bag to hold all your essentials (phone, keys, lipstick…you know the drill).

When it comes to prepping for the holiday season and all the social events that come along with it, feel confident knowing you have head-turning, figure-flattering party dresses from VENUS in your wardrobe.
