How To Choose Your Holiday Party Dress
The first step to choosing a dress is to figure out how many parties and occasions you’ll need an outfit for. Decide whether you’d like to invest in a really nice one and wear it a few times, or choose a few lower priced dresses. In making this decision think carefully about the attendees to each of the parties on your list. If you’ll be seeing the same group of people at several events, we recommend going with the lower-priced options and choosing multiple outfits. However, if the majority of people are going to be different at your events or parties, investing in one great holiday dress might be perfect for you!
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
Of course, not all holiday parties require a pretty dress. Read the invitation carefully and consider the most appropriate outfit. Sometimes there will be a specific dress code, keep an eye on the location. If it is outdoors, or in a tented venue, you may want to go wit ha jumpsuit or something that will keep your legs covered. Ugly Sweater parties are big this time of year, you don’t want to be the only person showing up without one! What if you’re ice skating? You’ll probably prefer pants.
What should I wear to a holiday party?
Once you figure out what is required at the party, you’ll then have your choice of dresses to choose from! In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a little black dress. They are classic and always a winner. During the holidays, a largely accepted color is red, so maybe a red outfit or dress is better for you being a little more festive!
How to Dress for a casual holiday party?

A casual party is just that, and your attire should be appropriate, but also fun and functional. Whether it be a backyard barbecue, bridal shower, family reunion, birthday party or bachelorette blowout, choose an outfit that can get you through the entire evening comfortably. The time the party is held should play a part in your fashion decision. If the party is in the daytime, your style of dress should be more playful and sophisticated with an element of understated glamor. Evening events allow you to be more dramatic and daring, so amp up the sexiness and bring out your inner rock star.
How to Dress for a Semi-Formal Event?

Semi-formal attire is typically worn to weddings, holiday parties, and to fine restaurants. Some teen and preteen dances are designated semi-formal.
If you receive an invitation that states semi-formal as the required or preferred style of dress, you have a wide range of choices. It fits somewhere between casual and formal, so you might need to clarify specifically what is meant if you aren't sure. There's nothing wrong with contacting the host to ask for more specific information.
Women have quite a few options with semi-formal attire. This may include a pantsuit in a dressy fabric, such as silk, cashmere, or satin.
A dress or dressy suit with a dressy top, with heels, strappy sandals, or dressy flats may also be worn. Sparkling gemstones, pearls, and dressy fashion jewelry are all appropriate. However, be careful not to overdo it, or you'll look more like you're in costume than semi-formal wear.

This is the one everyone seems to struggle with. What does formal actually mean? Formal usually means cocktail dresses and up, but what it really means is you’ll see everything. From short dresses to floor length gowns. Men should be in full suits or tuxedos (not required). Just because you see everything doesn’t mean you want to be one of the everythings. Your host will appreciate you following the attire per her request. Formal dresses are typically floor length evening gown or cocktail dress.
