Christmas Dresses

One of the best things about christmas is buying the dress. The perfect christmas dress in my opinion is glam, dressy and full of attitude.
I also love to buy a New Year’s dress. Then it’s more glam, metallics and emballishments.
There are a lot of colours going on this year. It’s the classics: black, grey, metallics, navy and ivory. And the strong colours like purple, red, orange and blue.
I’ve surfed the net to find the most perfect (and affordable) christmas and new years dresses and divided them into colours.
Tell me what’s your favourite in the comments!

I love these ¾ sleeves. They’re great for more formal occasions.
From left: Square Neck Sequin Chiffon Dress $85.17 from ASOS, Peoples Market Satin Frill Collar Dress $145.68 from ASOS, INC International Concepts Bead-Trim Dress $129 from Macy*s.

Black and gold is a gorgeous combination. I am in love with the dress in center.
From left: Lux House of Yes Dress $88 from Urban Outfitters, ASOS Premium Silk Deco Embroidered Dress $112.07 from ASOS, Spring & Clifton Drawstring Waist Dress $227 from ShopBop.

The ones on left and center are more structured and elegant. The one to the right is perfect for fuller bottoms since it’s flowy from waist down.
From left: Belted Dress $78.45 from ASOS, Fitted Bow Front Dress $78.45 from ASOS, Lux Divinity Dress $98 from Urban Outfitters.

The leather mini dress (right) is a bit unusual. So is the dress in center.
From left: Grey Ant Ruffle Mini Dress $198 from ShopBop, Lipsy Cut Out Silk Chiffon Dress $98.62 from ASOS, Lipsy Leather Look Shift Dress $89.65 from ASOS.

Grey can be a bit dull colour, unless it’s glamed up with some sparkle.
From left: Beaded Cut-Out Neck Dress $85.17 from ASOS, LUXE Sequin Scoop Back Dress $145.68 from ASOS, Hot Kiss Rhinestone-Accent Strapless Dress $59 from Dillard's, Lux Wool Tube Dress $78 from Urban Outfitters.

I love all of these dresses.
From left: ABS by Allen Schwartz Geometric-Print Dress $168 from Dillard's, Brigitte Dress $44.50 from dELiAs, Metallic Color Block Dress $45 from fredflare.

These are lighter and more romantic. They're a perfect substitute from all the LBD’s.

Here the attention is on the chest area with embellishment.
From left: Embellished Bust Halter Dress $85.17 from ASOS, LUXE Embellished Silk Halter Dress $145.68 from ASOS, Taylor Halter Dress $44.50 from dELiAs.

Navy is one of my favourite colours. It’s quite save like black, but at the same time interesting.
From left: Torrance Tunic $27.80 from Forever 21, Mina Button Up Frill Belted Tea Dress $168.10 from ASOS, Cap Sleeve Pleat Frill Dress $67.24 from ASOS, French Connection Strapless Fitted Mini-Dress $168.10 from ASOS.

Purple is such a glam colour.
From left: French Connection "Mystify Me Satin" Dress $158 from Dillard's, Gabbi Satin Top $24.80 from Forever 21, Elizabeth and James Chiffon Petal Dress $395 from INTERMIX.

Strong colours, like blue, look great on shiny fabrics, they get a more jewel tone.
From left: Embellished Knit Dress $62.76 from ASOS, BCBGMAXAZRIA Dress $240 from Dillard's, Zinc Crisscross-Back Satin Dress $69 from Dillard's.

I love wearing red for christmas, the ultimate christmas colour.
From left: Karta Short Sleeve Mini Dress $242 from ShopBop, Keyhole Pleat Halter Dress $85.17 from ASOS, Satin Bow Shift Dress $78.45 from ASOS, Bugle Beaded Halterneck Dress $67.24 from ASOS.
