Fresh Picks: Holiday Party Dresses

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…to party! In this season of what seems to be non-stop celebrations, a great party dress is definitely essential. Whether you opt for demure and ladylike or sparkly and vibrant, the right dress should definitely make an entrance.

Stylist’s Tip: Sequins, lace, pleats and mesh are all gorgeous details we love on party dresses. The problem is they tend to be very delicate, so great care must be taken in freshening them up. We love using the Rowenta Precision Valet Commercial Garment Steamer for de-wrinkling and even freshening up delicate dresses. It’s definitely a handy tool to have around! (A great bonus: You can use this handy tool all over the house, too—from your upholstery to drapes.)

 

We’ve picked out some of our favorite party dresses below. For even more pretty party frocks, check out our Dresses page!

Prom Season 2012

It’s that time of year again; the time when high school guys and gals get dressed to the nines, don their boutonnieres and corsages and slip into their fancy shoes. Yup, it’s prom season!

If going to the mall just isn't your style (and who really wants to stand in line and deal with poorly-lit dressing rooms anyway?), we’ve got some fabulous dresses, shoes and accessories worthy of prom night.

Here's a fun idea: have your very own "pre-prom fitting party" at home. Invite your friends and try on some dresses and shoes as your friends vote on which ones are keepers for the big night. (It’s ok; we have FREE shipping both ways!)  

Here are just a few of our prom favorites to get you started:

Dress The Part

casual dresses, cocktail dresses, couture dresses, designer dresses, dresses, dresses for every occasion, dressing for the occasion, evening dresses, fashion, fashionable dresses, party dresses, style tips, stylish dresses, woman, women

Every well-dressed woman knows the importance of dressing for the occasion.  Whether it’s for a fancy gala, a sun-soaked weekend by the beach, or just another day at the office, picking the right dress is essential for being fashionably on point.

Here we’re showcasing four different dresses to suit four distinctly different occasions.  

1.        Casual Weekend- This lightweight and breezy seersucker dress from Juicy Couture evokes such a summery look. It has a very Hamptons-style feel to it, but done in a modern and refreshingly simple way. Pair it with some wedge espadrilles and a straw tote to complete the carefree and charming look.

2.       Office Style- Since the little black dress is such an enduring staple, why not wear it to work? This prim and polished Kate Spade Ponte Cady dress is brimming with such refined elegance, making it perfect for a more professional setting. Its lovely shift silhouette, coupled with its charming chain detail give it a very modern-meets-vintage flair. Pair it with some nude or black pumps for a look that’s both work-appropriate and sophisticated.

3.       Cocktail Party- A great way to command attention is through a bold color. This stunning Tibi Anick dress not only has the most of-the-moment shade of turquoise, it boasts such an interesting neckline and pleated waist detail. These stylish elements add up to something totally show-stopping. A pair of strappy metallic sandals or sexy platform pumps completes this noteworthy party look.

4.       Fancy Evening Gala- When it comes to evening events, it’s time to turn up the glam factor! Choose strategically-placed sparkle details such as the rhinestone accents on this elegant Kate Spade Josie dress. The lovely satin sheen on the fabric also adds to its soft opulence. Finish off this party-ready dress with a pair of beautiful satin pumps and a chic, sparkly clutch.

So there you have it, four different occasions with four distinctly appropriate and stylish dresses from Couture.Zappos.com.
