Last year’s party theme: All dressed up and nowhere to go. This year, there are definitely places to go—cocktail parties, dinners, family fetes, holiday soirees. It’s a joyful return to putting on a fancy dress and arriving to your destination in style. When considering exactly what to wear, look for pieces that let your personality shine through. This is not the time to hold back or play it safe but embrace bold silhouettes, bright colors, shimmery patterns and sequins. Not all at once, of course. The point is to have fun and feel confident in what you’re wearing, which really sets the tone for the party, whether you’re hosting or playing guest.
The best party dresses have volume and movement for a dramatic entrance.
For those spontaneous parties or last-minute invites, it helps to have a few go-to dresses that you can always throw on with a pair of statement shoes, or earrings, and be ready in minutes. For more planned-out occasions, consider modern updates to the classics. For work events, a gorgeous day-to-night knit dress. For cocktails, a beautiful LBD with a festive twist. For family gatherings, a sweater dress that’s comfortable and also chic. Ahead, 8 of the best new party dresses to have a ball in this season.      
Saks Fifth Avenue
Self Portrait is known for making some of the most versatile dresses with modern details. This midi-length dress has an elaborate mix of floral cutwork lace, which creates a gorgeous peekaboo effect.
Bergdorf Goodman
Rows of multi-colored feathers put a festive spin the classic LBD (little black dress), which hits above the knees and has an elegant shift silhouette. You can add sparkly jewelry for a finishing touch or simply throw on a coat and go.
Diane von Furstenberg’s crinkly silk-georgette dress is decorated with a vivid floral print set against a black background, which gives it an evening feel. It has a smocked collar, waist and cuffs to define the flowy silhouette and long sleeves to keep you warm.
This satin midi has a simple silhouette and straight design that’s accented with dramatic puffed three-quarter sleeves for a stunning visual effect. Pair with flats or platforms, depending on how you want to style it.
Sequined dresses are inherently fun to wear but they’re often very sparkly—and very short. This one strikes the perfect balance, with diagonal bands of sequins, a tie waist and fit-and-flare silhouette that reveals just enough skin.
This wrap dress is made from 100% high shine silk satin has has a ruffled high-low hem, shawl collar, ruched zip cuffs and a waist sash tie closure for a chic finish.
This ribbed knit maxi has a minimalist vibe with it’s mock turtleneck collar, slim sleeves and figure-shaping silhouette. The off-center front slit adds interest while still keeping you warm on those chilly days.
Bergdorf Goodman
This silk dress is a splurge but one you will want to wear all the time. It’s made with a glossy 100% silk twill, fitted in the shoulders and bust, and then tiered and draped elsewhere, so it creates volume and movement when you walk (or dance) in this.
