This season is time to be jolly and break out your holiday dresses! I love this time of the year best as no matter where you go, you can always dress up yourself! Wholesale party dresses are a staple in your wardrobe between November and January. And you never know when you will need one. I always prefer to have multiple options rather than under-dressed, so I like to keep a few dresses in my closet at this time of the year to be prepared for the last parties and invitation. Today I will introduce how to choose the best holiday party dress for your parties and events.
How To Choose Your Holiday Party Dresses
Decide What to Invest in
The first step in choosing a dress is to figure out how many parties and occasions you will need to attend. Decide whether you want to invest in a really nice and expensive one and wear it several times, or choose a few lower-priced dresses. Before making this decision, carefully consider the participants to each of the parties on your list. If you will be seeing the same group of people at several events, it is recommended that you go with the lower-priced options and choose multiple outfits. However, if the majority of people are going to be different at your events or parties, investing in an excellent holiday dress might be the best choice for you!
Read the Invitation Carefully
Of course, not all holiday parties require modest and elegant dresses. Read the invitation letter carefully and think about the most appropriate outfit. Sometimes there will be a specific dress code, pay attention to the location. If you are outdoors, or in a tented venue, you may want to wear a jumpsuit or something that can cover your legs. The ugly sweater parties are big this time of the year, I think you do not want to be the only person showing up without one.
Figure out the Occasions
In addition to a dress, you may need to bring a gift if it is an occasion to exchange gifts. And you need to understand where these things may fit into your budget. Finally, you will want to consider the other guests. If it is an office party, you might want to be conservative with something like a fitted and flared dress, but if it’s all your friends and you’ll be heading to the bars later, a bodycon dress may be the perfect choice.
Holiday Party Dress Ideas
Once you figure out what is required at the party, then you can make your choice of dresses. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with a little black dress. They are classic and will always be a winner. During the holidays, the generally accepted color is red, so maybe a red attire or dress is more appropriate for you being a little more festive.
Casual Party DressCasual party dresses are wonderful as you can wear them on other occasions too. They double as brunch costumes, or look like they are best suited for this time of year on date night. Many families may host a Christmas party every year, which is a pretty casual affair. Over the years most girls would go from wearing casual sweater dresses. While not a dress, trousers are a more casual choice for holiday parties. I like these green pants that look chic and are very comfortable to wear for a long time. This attire is another one that you can rock to the office or out to a casual party or evening event.
Semi-formal Party DressIf your party is more semi-formal, then a cocktail dress or little black dress would be more appropriate for the occasion. Wearing a festive red dress to a holiday brunch that is more semi-formal than casual. In addition, I think it will be difficult for you to find someone unhappy with you being overdressed. As far as I am concerned, dresses are perfect for any occasion. If you aren’t given a dress code, then the semi-formal style is your best choice. The velvet faux wrap dress is my favorite style as it looks pretty without being over the top and it doesn’t exceed the highest price. The length and style of the dress give it a more casual side, and the burgundy color just screams holiday to me.
Formal Party DressThis is the one that everyone seems to be struggling with. Formal usually refers to a cocktail dress, but it actually means that you will see everything. From mini dresses to floor length gowns. Just because you see everything does not mean you want to be one of everything. Your host will appreciate it that you follow the attire per her request. Formal dresses are generally a floor-length evening gown or a cocktail dress. This gorgeous sequin dress is one of the favorites of fashionista this season. It’s ideal for a formal occasion because it’s sparkling, which usually means more fancy, and it has a good length to move around in. I love the long-sleeved and high-neck that keep it classy while still being a mini dress.
