Party Dresses for Christmas and New Year’s Celebrations
Christmas Party Dresses
Starting off strong with a red sequin dress—the ultimate festive power move. The rich red color adds a touch of warmth and holiday cheer, while the sequins bring the sparkle that every celebration deserves. It’s the unbeatable combo for the perfect Christmas party dress.
This velvet off-shoulder dress is a show-stopping choice that radiates elegance and festive charm. Green is such a festive color and the velvet fabric adds a touch of luxury to the entire look. Plus, it hugs all the right places.
If you’re not a fan of tight-fit bodycon dresses, this flare pleated dress is your go-to. It’s just short enough to flatter, and the waist tie will ensure a perfect fit.
This dazzling one-shoulder number is ideal for many different occasions— whether it’s Christmas, a New Year’s party, or when you’re a guest at a wedding. It adds a bit of sparkle to your style for those special moments.
Enjoy your festivities in this floral-print dress. It’s another great option for a non-fitted dress, and the side-tie waist bow not only accentuates your figure but also adds a sweet and charming detail.
Going to a Christmas cocktail party? This stunning sequin and tulle dress from Dress The Population is your ticket to turning heads and stealing the spotlight. Plus its midi length is an elegant choice for a formal party.
If you don’t want to go glitter and sparkles, this satin dress is an option. The cowl neckline, thin straps, and midi length make this a seriously chic Christmas party dress.
Go white and add some flair to your festivities with this faux pearl and feather mini dress. Though it’s a bit on the pricier side, the investment will be worth every penny.
This deep red velvet number is an elegant choice for an evening Christmas party. The strapless design is beautiful to showcase your shoulders and collarbone and the ruched detailing creates a flattering silhouette to your figure.
Dresses are not the only way to go for your Christmas party outfit. This faux leather pants and sequin shirt combo are a great alternative. Pair it with some strappy heels and a cute clutch and you’ll be ready to sleigh the party.
New Year’s Party Dresses
I love the asymmetric design and gold button detailing in this white blazer dress. If you’re planning on going out with your girls for the New Year’s celebration, then this is your go-to. Pair it with a statement clutch and gold strappy heels and you’re ready to usher in the New Year in style.
Shimmy and sashay the night away in this faux feather hem dress. It will sway with every step you take creating a mesmerizing effect as you celebrate the new year.
Trade the sequins for beads with this elegant dress from Asos. It has a side slit and an open lower back and gives off serious goddess vibes. It would also make an amazing wedding guest dress.
This stunning silver-black dress is perfect for New Year’s Eve. The cowl neckline and ruched detail add a bit of drama for a show-stopping look.
A sparkly black jumpsuit for the night? Yes, please. This one from Lovers and Friends is comfortable and fits true to size. You might want to consider fashion tape if the neck plunge is too deep for you.
Make a statement with this super-cute bow dress from Revolve. You’ll be the cutest present for the new year.
This sparkly bandeau maxi dress will have you ready to usher in the new year. Pair it with your favorite heels and silver accessories for the full glam look.
I’m in love… I’m obsessed with this mini bubble dress. If you’re on the hunt for something cute but not so formal, this is your dress. Not to mention all the brunch dates you can wear it to.
Showcase your long beautiful legs in this high-slit number. Its open-back detail and floral sequins make this dress perfect for any evening party. You might want to consider a coat to keep warm though.
When everything else fails, go for this simple gold and black maxi dress. It’s not so simple though because it has a stunning strappy back action for some glamour. And the best part is it’s long enough to keep you warm throughout the evening.
