5 perfect holiday dresses. For you.

We’ve already established our love for Zappos, which is quite clear if you take a peek at our closets. So when they asked us to some of our favorite dresses for the holidays, we knew the only problem we’d have would be culling our list down to just five.

With holiday parties, family gatherings, and New Year’s Eve right around the corner, your regular rotation of skirts, tops, or the dress you wore last year just isn’t going to cut it. This is your year, mamas!

So we picked five droolworthy dresses at our sponsor Zappos that will make you the talk of the company party. And not because you had too many Manhattans.

We’re huge fans of designer Ella Moss, whose easy styles are quite flattering on most figures. And what’s the holidays without a little bit of sparkle, done here in jersey and modal so you’ll be comfortable while you shine.

If there’s ever a splurge to be had, it’s on Theory, whose modern interpretation of classic styles give them lots of longevity in your closet. We think the beautiful burgundy is a nice change to the bright holiday reds.

We say women of any size can be sexy in sequins, and iconic designer Michael Kors does it well with this black dress that’s super flattering thanks to a cinched waist, short sleeves, and a wrap bodice.

Sorry kids, Santa couldn’t bring all your presents this year because he bought mama a Halston. We covet this heritage scarf dress that’s perfect for dancing the night away. Eh, they didn’t need those LEGO sets anyway.

You’ll find tons of beautiful holiday dresses and the shoes to match (but you probably already knew that) at our sponsor
