From glittery details to winter florals, there’s a holiday look for every mood, style, and occasion. Need a little inspiration? Check out our top picks of holiday dresses that will have you looking and feeling gorgeous and totally on-trend.

Winter Colors

Let your summer brights take the backseat and rock some richer hues this season. Deep jewel tones like emerald, plum, and luxe burgundy give any look an elegant, dramatic finish. Pair a smoky eye and sparkling accessories with a dark burgundy gown for a look that’s both festive and sophisticated, or go for a matching lip and barely-there eye makeup for a modern, monochromatic style. You can’t go wrong with a seasonal color palette this glamorous. Our favorite take on this trend: a slim-fitting, full-length gown in moody merlot for an outfit palette that takes center stage.

Floral Print 

Florals for winter? It can be done – and totally should! Stay away from pastel palettes and go for a crisp, bold floral with contrasting colors. Try a retro silhouette like an off-the-shoulder sweetheart or classic fit and flare for an updated take on iconic holiday looks. But how to accessorize? With a print this bold, keep your finishing touches subtle – a shiny lip and some coordinated earrings add the perfect bit of flair to this eye-catching look.

green holiday dresses


Take lace from dreamy to mysterious with our winter color palette. Lace bodice details on a full-length gown add a sultry, dramatic edge to your standard v-neck dress, and they’re the perfect pairing for sparkling statement earrings. Our favorite look? An emerald lace gown with teardrop earrings and a coral lip for a high-contrast, ultra-glamorous take on this trend.

sequin holiday dresses


Last but definitely not least, we can’t forget sequins. Who doesn’t love glitter? A sequined gown is the ultimate festive and elegant statement. All eyes will be on you in a full-length shimmery gown, no matter how you choose to rock it. Go for the standard black or silver for a classic take on this trend, or take it up a notch with contemporary blush tones and a dark red lip for a romantic-meets-edgy look. Our biggest tip? Choose one pop color (like a burgundy lip), and stay away from sparkling accessories so your dress can stay front and center.
