Did someone say holiday party? I personally love a little sequin and/or velvet on a holiday dress, but those suckers can be expensive! In this month’s Fashion Finds Under $200 post, I’m rounding up a ton of holiday party dresses under $200 so you can hit the scene without totally blowing your December paycheck on clothes.
As always if you see something you love, just click on it and it’ll take you to the page to shop.
& Other Stories sent me this emerald velvet faux wrap dress (image #3 in the collage below) and I knew instantly that this was the dress I wanted to feature for this post. Wrap dresses can be tricky on me, but with perfectly placed hidden snaps to keep the dress in place, I had no issues. There’s a curved hemline at the bottom, a cute tie detail at the hip, and the fabric is GORG. Textured velvet? Sign me UP. This dress will only set you back $119. I love it because although the dark green shade is festive, you could really wear this all winter. It also comes in black if you’re looking for a textural take on the LBD. This is the perfect dress for any holiday party, but particularly for a work event.
Some of my other favorite holiday dresses:
#1 This V-neck shimmer velvet dress is another $99 gem. While most people will probably opt for holiday party dresses in traditional black, burgundy, or silver, show up to your party in this icy blue mini dress. I love the balance between the short hemline and the long sleeves.
#4 I love the idea of being festive without being too literal. This black dress is a comfy silhouette, and leopard print makes it very on-trend. But it’s the metallic thread of the spotted pattern that takes this dress from everyday work piece to holiday party ready.
#7 This gorgeous sparkly black velvet midi dress is only $99. I love the cut on this; it’s longer than most party dresses and totally unexpected. It’s pretty versatile in terms of shoe pairings: try a classic black pump, a fun colored heel, or tight knee-high heeled boots.
#6 If you’re looking for something sparkly (I love a good sequin number) then I love this V-neck shift dress. The silhouette is mod but also comfortable (AKA eat all of the passed appetizers you want). If you live somewhere cold or need to make this more conservative, try adding a black layering turtleneck. This one is always my-go to for throwing on under tank pieces.
