Christmas Party Dresses Part 1: Forever 21

Are you looking for something to wear to your office Christmas party or annual fancy holiday soiree? Tired of wearing the same 3 dresses year after year, but reluctant to break the bank? Well then, you'll want to check out my 3 part series featuring festive party dresses that are cute AND affordable! First up, is cheap clothing haven, Forever 21.

Normally, I'd never think of Forever 21 as a place for dresses, but they actually have a lot of cute options that are all under $50. Of course, being Forever 21, the dresses lean more towards trendy than sophisticated, but I think I've found some options that will match many different personal styles.

Dainty Lace A-line dress, $21.80

Lace is always a favourite for dresses. What could be more feminine, sexy and yet demure than sheer lace? This LBD is quite simple on the front with a plain scoop neck and a-line skirt, but the back will steal the show with its flowery lace pattern. I would dress up the front with a simple necklace and maybe some drop earrings or a sparkly tennis bracelet, but I'd suggest only doing one of these if you do accessorize as you could easily veer into vampy instead of classy.

Luxe Geo Skater dress, $35.80

If your party's dress code skews on the more conservative side, then play it safe with this royal blue skater dress. In a sea of black dresses, a beautiful blue will be enough to make you stand out and this skater skirt is pretty flattering for most body types. The back of this dress features a scoop neck which reveals the top third of your dress, so this outfit is just begging for a sleek up-do and a statement necklace to jazz up the front.

Charming Boucle dress, $27.80

Another classic option is this blush pink knit dress. Similar to the previous dress, this one has a scooped back, but is definitely more body-hugging. My favourite part of this dress, besides the light pink-cream color, is the interesting "nubby" details from the knit and the sequin accents sprinkled throughout that give it just a hint of festiveness.

Luxe Fit & Flare dress, $33.80

Lastly, for the more rocker types, is this embellished LBD. With its sexy sheer front and back panels and beaded epaulette-style shoulders, this dress leaves a smoldering impression. Again, how you style your hair and makeup will affect the overall look; you could go for smokey eyes and tousled hair like the model above, or do a sleek top bun and red lips for a more edgy couture look.

Which dress is your favourite so far and which store do you think I should check out next week?
