When it comes to holiday party dressing, it doesn’t get easier or more classic than a little black dress. Which is convenient, because it also happens to be a wardrobe staple we should all own at least one good version of anyway, if not more. So in case your closet is lacking in the LBD department, or if like me, you’re always game to stock up on another one, today I’ve rounded up the best black dresses for holiday parties and beyond. From minis to midis and formfitting pieces to slip styles and simple to embellished, I’ve not only got something for every style type, but with options starting at $35, every budget too. Keep on scrolling to see what I’ve found.

Up next? All the help you could possibly want with gift buying this year.


Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
