As the holidays come to a close I know there are still a ton of holiday parties that you have yet to attend. If you’re like me and are a last minute shopper and/ or an indecisive person, you’re probably still shopping around for a perfect party dress. That’s why I’ve compiled a top 5 list of the best holiday dresses you can still get, for less!
I’m a huge fan of ModCloth, this coral dress with a silver belt would be great for the holiday and new years parties. Dress it up with some pumps and a sparkly clutch. Or dress it down with some silver flats and a cardigan over top. This dress could also work well in the spring for other events too!
Lulu’s is another great site for dresses. I think that this long sleeve dress in burgundy with a peplum at the waist is perfect! You could even dress it up enough to wear it from work to a Christmas party. Plus the long sleeves with some tights underneath are great to face the winter cold in.
A sweater dress is also a great addition to your wardrobe for the winter season. Macy’s has a great collection including this cowl neck, ¾ length sleeve dress in pink. Sweater dresses can be hard to wear because they can sometimes be shapeless, but this one has a great belt to define your waist, and comes in a lighter material to help give shape.
Another option from ModCloth is this long sleeve lace frock. With ¾ length sleeves that are sheer with a tie belt at the waist, this dress is great for family gatherings. I’d wear this dress with colorful flats to add a pop of color to the white and a gold or sparkle headband to add some glamour to the season.
Lastly, this chiffon shirtdress from Old Navy is so adorable for so many occasions! Try it for a Christmas or New Years brunch with some riding boots or to wear out to a party with some heels and a sparkly belt. I love polka dots for 2013 so be sure to start the trend early!
Old Navy: $30.00
