Even though you will lovingly deplete your bank account this month to spend money on other people, there are two words that will definitely raise your spirits: Party. Season. Just think about what's on deck: Friends' apartment holiday parties, obligatory family fêtes, Christmas dinner, and New Year's Eve, all of which give you plenty of reasons to snag something for yourself during the next few weeks. Nothing to wear? We'd love to assist. We found 115 perfect holiday dresses for our latest Shop-A-Matic, from A-lines to trapeze frocks. Click through the entire selection to see the best dresses in the city. But first, check out our five favorites after the jump.
Asymmetrical Tiered Dress by Twelve by Twelve
Why we like it: The tiers and muted red shade prove that you don't have to be flashy to still look flirty and fun.
Embellished Dress by Shoshanna
Why we like it: Gold embellishments update this classic little black dress, making it an elegant choice for holiday parties where you need to impress.
Silk Halter Dress by Banana Republic
Why we like it: Amazing color. Plus, the subtle twist at the neckline is a great spin on the halter.
Fringe Dress by Target-Limited-Edition
Why we like it: Take on the fringe trend with this flapper dress. And if the fringe tiers aren't enough to make you want to shimmy and shake, the price will seal the deal.
Ikat One-Shoulder Dress by Tibi
Why we like it: Between the print and the one-shoulder silhouette, this overall look for the holidays is completely refreshing.
