Sorry, But I Hate Cliché Party Dresses—Here's What I'm Wearing Instead

Listen, props to everyone who looks fabulous in a body-con metallic dress, but I personally never feel comfortable in tight dresses. Instead of the cliché glittery mini for holiday parties, I'm interested in experimenting with other dress silhouettes this year. Yes, I'm still into dresses that scream "festive," but I'm also interested in other styles that are year-round classics.

For instance, I'm absolutely obsessed with the pleated plissé tiered midi dress from our newest Who What Wear Collection drop. It's such an elegant silhouette, and the gold color really packs a punch for the party circuit. In case you missed it, our last plissé dress style initially sold out almost immediately, so we have a feeling this one may go quickly as well. Scroll down to shop the dress styles I'm excited to wear for the holidays. 

Tiered Dresses

This is the kind of dress that will earn you compliments galore. I'm in love with the delicate pleats, the pretty tiers, and of course, the joyful golden hue. 

The dress also comes in this beautiful white color, which looks amazing styled with chunky gold jewelry. 

Ruched Dresses

I love this LBD-with-a-twist. The statement puffy sleeves and fun ruching really take it to the next level.

This stunner of a dress can be worn with or without the belt, so it can be easily dressed up or down.

This is a year-round classic that you can truly wear anytime, anywhere. 

Faux-Leather Dresses

Who What Wear Collection is quickly becoming known for its scrumptious vegan leather, which is super soft to the touch and incredibly chic. 

I'm also obsessed with the beautiful brown version of the dress. I'd go for a monochrome look and throw a camel coat over it. 

Subtle Cutout Dresses

This plissé dress sold out when we first dropped it, but we've brought back several sizes. What are you waiting for? 

This stretchy ribbed dress is so comfortable yet elegant at the same time. 

I love how this is expertly styled with knee-high boots. 

Slip Dresses

This marble-like print is so dreamy from any angle.

Take note: Slip dresses look fantastic when styled over a slim-fitting turtleneck sweater. 

Floral Dresses

This may not scream "holiday party," but it's the kind of dress that you can wear 365 days a year and not get tired of. 

Hurry: This fantastic dress won't be on sale forever. 

I love switching from bright florals to moody, darker versions for winter.
