Best Holiday Dresses
Oh You Fancy Dress
Absolutely love this option for so many reasons. The length is perfect if you’re wanting to show off your legs but no go full mini dress, the long sleeves are weather appropriate, and the faux wrap style is incredibly flattering on your waist! We also love that it’s nursing and bump-friendly.
Darla Two in One Slip Dress
Em wrote about this in her bestsellers from October. It’s such a unique, two-in-one dress! Yes, dress. The sweater and slip dress act as one, full look, but it also features adjustable straps so you can get it exactly right. It’s the perfect option if you’re wanting to stay relaxed and comfortable but also super stylish, and we love the deep green color for the holidays!
This is called the Easy Crewneck sweater dress, and it is so easy. It can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with booties and looks good either way! We love the ribbed stitching at the neckline, sleeves, and hem!
Cowl Back Velvet Dress
This is what holiday dresses and winter wedding guest dresses dreams are made of! This stunning dress is creamy velvet in the most gorgeous green, and features a cowl back for a touch of elegance, sophistication, and dare we say, sex appeal?! There’s no way anyone could wear this and not feel fierce and festive all at once.
Velvet Sheath Cocktail Dress
Another incredible velvet option is this gorgeous sheath cocktail dress from Nordstrom. Eliza J can do no wrong when it comes to party, wedding, and event dresses, and this is just another testament to that. It comes in both deep, hunter green and a rich navy, both of which pair well with a cocktail, mistletoe, and heels!
Plunge Neck Long Sleeve Midi
This dress is to die for. A plunging neckline, midi length, green and black jacquard design, and shimmer?! It’s the perfect holiday dress if you’re looking to turn heads. With a dress this decorated, all you need is a great pair of black pumps and your look is complete.
Off Shoulder Knit Dress
When in doubt or overwhelmed with options, a form-fitting, off shoulder dress is the answer. This one from Revolve is insanely chic and understated, but still a stunner. We especially love how the model has it with her hair tied back to elongate her neck. So feminine and can be worn outside of the holidays, too!
Drape Front Turtleneck Mini
This dress seems simple at first glance, but it really makes a stylish statement. The mini length is flirty, while the long sleeves, turtleneck collar, and front and back openings keep it classy.
Turtleneck Cable Dress
If full coverage is your style, consider this perfect turtleneck dress from Revolve. Made from cable knit fabric, it’s thick and cozy to keep you warm, comes in both black and tan, and is under $150. With a red lip and sparkling earrings, it’s the perfect holiday event dress!
Satin Ruched Slip Dress
For something super simple and low maintenance, this satin slip dress from Express is perfect. It’s available in three very festive colors (black, burgundy, and forest green), and supplies a chic, blank canvas for you to style as you like! With a pashmina, it’s an ideal winter wedding guest dress.
Ribbed Mock Neck Sweater Dress
We love how trendy this dress is. Balloon sleeves, ribbed texture, and a mock neck?! It’s a casual, easy holiday dress that you can dress up with heels or even throw on with sneakers post-holidays! It hugs your curves the right way while keeping you warm.
Satin Twist Front Midi
Another satin number we love is this dress from Express. The twist front makes it so flattering in the waist, and the midi length and long sleeves are perfect for winter dress-up. It also looks amazing with knee-high boots as well as classic pumps. Both the gorgeous deep red color or the silver would look stunning for your holiday event or winter wedding.
Ruched Long Sleeve Slip Dress
This is another great option that comes in black, burgundy, and deep forest green. The rouched detailing on the lower half both minimizes and accentuates the right parts, and we love that this can be dressed up or down depending on where you’re wearing it.
Satin V Neck Midi
Another stunning classic! This might be our favorite satin option yet. The v-neck, the midi length, and the minimal nature of this gorgeous dress are all just so good. The front slip and asymmetrical hem are both trendy and classic, so this satin midi dress will always be in style. We love the sophisticated simplicity!
