Dazzling holiday dresses

The holiday season means a few things: shopping, eating and most importantly, dressing up! That’s why this week on Pretty Little Things (where we bring you gorgeous online finds), we’re rounding up the cocktail frocks we’re coveting.
Dazzling holiday dresses

One-shoulder chic

If you’re on the lookout for a new LBD for party season, we suggest this chic one-shoulder mini in stretchy knit for optimum comfort that looks great all night ($178). Black stretch lace covers a nude underlay for a flattering, form-fitting silhouette. Add some vibrant heels and lips to match for a pretty, party-ready look.

Party peplum

Sport two of the season’s top trends — oxblood and peplums — when you slip into this sleek, body hugging sequin party dress with peplum waist detail ($130). We love the rich, holiday-ready hue, all-over sparkle and sexy v-back. Pair with a simple black velvet clutch, chandelier earrings and platform pumps.

Metallic mini

Be prepared to steal the show at your next seasonal soiree as you make your entrance in this textured silver mini with cap sleeves and mod design ($235). Silver is the perfect holiday hue and we love the fact that you can go bold with accessories (choose something vibrant) or keep things toned down (opt for shoes and a bag in a neutral color).

Sassy strapless

One of the best things about the holiday season is all those parties. Dance the night away in this flirty black strapless dress with a flowy black skirt and gold beaded top ($100). The gold detailing creates an eye-catching effect and the fact that this frock is fully lined means you won't have any embarrassing moments. Pair with neutral shoes and a clutch and let the dress speak for itself.

Blue beauty

Turn heads in a classic silk chiffon dress with a deep v-neckline and a flirty, flowy skirt ($250). The hand-draped bodice is ultra-flattering and the vibrant shade of blue is an ideal party hue. Pair with printed heels and a beaded bag for a simple yet totally flattering look that never goes out of style.
