Say Yes to a Party Dress!
Vibrant prints, standout sequins, velvet ruffles—we found eight festive dresses that will make you pop and your figure rock.
Sequins and metallic fabrics can be super-flattering. The rich color and simple cut of this plum sparkler (left) elongates your figure, while the A-line cut and mixed print with darker color on bottom (right) slims your lower half.
Nothing’s more flattering (and comfortable!) than curve-skimming draped jersey. If you’re fair, go for a bright shade like orange; those with medium and dark skin look great in desaturated colors like beige or ivory.
Hot in the '50s, in the '80s, and this holiday season, a full-skirted frock works on almost every body type. If you're bottom-heavy, it hides flaws; if you've got a boyish figure, it creates a perfect hourglass.
This season's bright colors are surprisingly easy to wear. This blue dress highlights your narrowest spot (a few inches above your waist). And the raspberry-pink velvet print is festive but not fussy.
Since bold patterns look best on simple dress shapes, this cap-sleeve sheath is the perfect complement to gorgeous oversized roses. Plus, the fitted fabric has spandex that sucks you in for a so-thin look.
