With some of the most festive holiday parties just around the corner, deciding what to wear can be slightly stressful. Even though the ‘little black dress’ is always a good go-to option for a special occasion, going with something that has a little sparkle or color is an even better choice. If you’re unsure what you want to wear to your upcoming party, check out some of the hottest party dress trends according to InStyle Magazine:
Sapphire or Green
Any deep-green dress is not only complementing to your skin tone, but will also be the center of attention at the party. Not a fan of green? Choose a dress from the deep blue palette, which will also pair nicely with any skin tone. Check out Banana Republic for party options.
To soften up your look, as well as that of a holiday party, choose a feminine dress with pastel colors. Lavender, cream, soft blue and pink are all perfect party dress colors. Look for dresses with added embellishments like beaded trip, ruching or frilly layers. Find a variety of party dresses at Express.
Little Black Dress
Every girl needs to have a black dress in their closet, and even though it’s been around forever there are new ways the look has been updated. Look for styles that have sheer sleeves, one-shoulder straps, beaded trim or sequin accents. Not only will you have a perfect party go-to but the added embellishments will work to accessorize your look for the evening. Find a little black dress at Tracy Reese.

Black and Gold
You can never go wrong with pairing black and gold together for an elegant holiday party.
