Holiday Party : Dress Guide

Hi Dolls!

   You know Holiday season has begun when the Holiday party invites go out!

   I am really looking forward to my company’s holiday party, which is in about a week. I have never worked at a company that had an actual holiday party, so I am pretty excited to get dressed up and enjoy the evening. This will be more of a cocktail dress event, so now I have been racking the internet for inspiration of what to wear.

A few trends stood out to me, while I was surfing through all my favourite stores sites, these are some of my fav dresses I found from each of them. I have picked dresses from ranging price points, cuz c’mon we all don’t have the same budget for a holiday dress!

I would say the most popular trend for holiday dresses this year is Sequins!! Nothing says holiday time like sparkling sequins!


Bronze Sequined Dress – H&M $69.99

I love the colour of this sequined dress from H&M. I also like the look of the skirt/top pairing, instead of one plain streamline look. This would definitely be a dress I would have to try on before ordering. Plus with it being sleeveless, I would have to think of a jacket to go with it, to wear it to a company party.


Green Sequined Dress – H&M $129.00

When you think of Christmas colours of course you think of red and green! Now, I’m not sure if I would wear this colour dress, but I love the ombre look of the sequins. You can find it here.


Red Sequined Dress – H&M $69.99

I love the colour and cut of this dress! Totally covered in the front, with a sexy, draped open back! Of course, I would not wear this to an office work party, but any other holiday party.. for sure! You can find it here.


Gold Sequined Dress – H&M $69.99

This sequined dress is a very classis silhouette. It’s totally office party appropriate and given its a long sleeve, you won’t have to worry about wearing a jacket or cover all night. It does have a deep V cut back, which adds a bit of sexiness to it. You can check out the back and other pics of this dress here.

   A current holiday trend of white dresses is one I love! A white dress is clean, classy and exudes major confidence! Plus, it reminds me of a nice snowy Christmas morning!


White Ribbed Cold-Shoulder Dress – H&M $49.99

I like this white ribbed cold-shoulder dress from H&M for a few reasons. Its totally appropriate for an office party, the cold-shoulder style is a huge trend right now and best of all it can totally been worn more than once, or twice! It also comes in a beige colour, you can check them both out here.


Halima Dress – Marciano $90.00 (limited time)

 I love the draping of this white sequined dress, and what’s even better is the limited-time price! It usually retails for $198.00 but for a limited time it’s on sale for $90.00 Check out their site to pick up this dress while it’s on sale!


Ayala Bandage Dress – Marciano $80.00 (limited time)



This white cold-shoulder dress from Marciano is a “dressier” version compared to the first one I highlighted from H&M. This is a bandage style, rather than a ribbed fabric. Good news, this dress is on sale for a limited time for $80. Regularly retailing at $178.00, that’s a great price.

   One of the biggest trends this fall, that I never thought I would wear.. but LOVE is velvet. As kids, velvet dresses were always the “go to” for Christmas parties, so it only makes sense that they have made a comeback this season!


Draped Navy blue Dress – H&M $39.99

This draped dress from H&M isn’t so much a holiday colour, but if you aren’t looking to stand out with a bright colour dress, at least the Navy blue has a softer look to it then a black dress. Plus this cut and silhouette are perfect for an office party.


Red Crushed Velvet Dress – Forever21 $19.90

This red velveteen dress from Forever 21 is super cute and at a great price for only $20! It’s too short for an office party, but a great steal for any other holiday party.


Burgundy velvet dress – M for Mendocino 331-4875


This burgundy crushed velvet dress from M for Mendocino is perfect for a holiday party, unfortunately their site doesn’t have the prices on it.

   When I think of holiday colours, what come to mind is red, green, gold, silver and everything sparkling! These dresses definitely fall into that category.


Red Choker Dress – Forever21 $30.90

I really like this red choker dress from Forever 21. The length is office party appropriate, but the off the shoulder cut gives it a hint of sexiness. I love the choker detail of the dress, since we all know how much the choker trend has come back in! Plus the price is great for this dress!


Red Halter Dress – H&M $39.99

I like the halter cut of this dress from H&M and I really like the detailing in the back. Being that it’s sleeveless, this is another dress I would need to think of a jacket/cover option for if I were to wear it to an office party.


Darcy Dress – Marciano $158.00

The great coverage, length, and colour make this dress from Marciano a good pick for an office holiday party , plus it has long sleeves!


Ramona Bandage Dress – Marciano $169.95


I really like the asymmetrical off-the-shoulder neckline of this red bandage dress from Marciano.



Green Short Dress – H&M $59.99

I really like the subtle sequin detailing on this green dress from H&M. I also like the fact it is long sleeve.


Silver Draped Dress – H&M $39.99

This silver draped dress from H&M is the exact same cut and style as the navy blue velvet dress I mentioned above. I like the sparkling silver of this dress for the holiday season.

   The last look I am highlighting in the post is the gown dresses. These are super luxurious, classy and perfect for a more formal holiday party.


Natalia Bandage Gown – Marciano $298.00

This red bandage gown from Marciano screams fancy holiday party!


Plum Gown – Urban Planet $49.95


This lightweight plum gown from Urban Planet has a criss-cross back and is a steal for $49.95. It also comes in black.


Silver Velvet Gown – M for Mendocino 337-1386



I love this silver/grey velvet strapless gown from M for Mendocino. Super elegant!


Red Choker Gown – M for Mendocino 339-0059


This red belted gown from M for Mendocino has a high slit that adds some extra sexiness!
