I love holiday parties because they gave me an excuse to wear a glittery, shimmery, ultra feminine dress. I hardly ever suggest buying clothes that aren't versatile, but holiday party dresses do not apply. This is the one time of year where I think it's totally OK to buy a dress you might only wear once or twice because it's the holidays. It's the time of year when you can absolutely go overboard with the sequins and the sparkle, and we all deserve to feel and look extra special at our fancy holiday parties. Even though I support splurging on a fancy dress this time of year, I know many people have tight budgets because of buying presents and traveling for the holidays. The great news---you don't have to spend a lot to find a fabulous dress. I've rounded up 9 holiday party dresses all under $200 (3 under $100!). \tTFNC \tBebe \tNasty Gal \tAiden by Aiden Mattox \tWhite House Black Market \tAnn Taylor \tBanana Republic \tCECE by Cynthia Steffe \tBar III I hope you find a great party dress this holiday party season. If you are looking for styling tips on how to dress for a holiday party, check out my post from last year where I showed three different looks appropriate for a cocktail party, an office holiday party and a party at a friend's house. As for makeup, add a bold lip and get yourself a fancy manicure. Have fun at your holiday parties!
