7 Party Dresses on Our Holiday Wish List

Among the work deadlines, the gift scramble, the meal planning, and the thoughts of escaping to an exotic island are the holiday gatherings. Some are obligatory, others are delightful, but no matter the case these party dresses will have you eager to go.

We kick off our lineup with Christopher Kane’s festive red silk frock (shown above). It covers all the right things, exposes all the right things, and drips with cool charms. It’s at once fashion forward and festive. Available at Farfetch, $1,995.

Holiday Party Dresses - Black Crepe Margot Dress

Sculptural sleeves are having a moment. The bells, like tipped-over tulips, on Roksanda’s crepe “Margo” dress are absolutely elegant. Pumps are a no brainer, but may we suggest some fun feather-toed, metal-heeled sandals by Marco De Vincenzo? Available at Avenue 32, $1,365.

Holiday Party Dresses - Green Beth Beaded Mini Dress

The price is just right on Karina Grimaldi’s “Beth” beaded mini. Feeling leggy? Go bare with strappy heels. Or keep your gams cozy in a pair of tights with boots. You just can’t lose in this emerald number. Available at Revolve, $349.

Holiday Party Dresses - Red Chalayan Draped Dress

This Chalayan slip-on jersey dress is an effortless head-turner. The cape-like flow of fabric is lovely, and the loose fit deserves a celebration of its own. Dress it up for parties; pare it down for more casual occasions. You’ll want to wear this one as often as possible. Available at Net-a-Porter, $650.

Holiday Party Dresses - Black Ponte Feather-Hem Skirt

We love this cashmere sweater and ponte feather skirt combo, courtesy of Polo Ralph Lauren. Best part? After your party, you can add your fave jeans to the sweater or top the skirt with a fresh knit and tall boots for two new go-to outfits. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue: top, $198 and skirt, $398.

Holiday Party Dresses - Black Mock-Neck Ribbed A-Line Dress

A little skin makes this turtleneck dress celebratory. We turn to experts of the cutout, Cushnie et Ochs, for this mock-neck frock that’s nipped at the waist for curve-hugging shape but also has an A-line skirt so you can pile your plate with canapé. Available at Neiman Marcus, $1,195. 

Holiday Party Dresses - Black Dawn Velvet Combo Jumpsuit

OK, it’s not a dress, but we’re not one for rules. Skip the LBD in lieu of a LBJ (that’s jumpsuit jargon). This Alexis one-piece has chic, wide tailored legs with a velvet bodice and V-neck for the perfect cocktail combo. Available at Intermix, $698.
