9 Dresses Defining Cool Style Right Now

The holiday season is in full swing, and I’ve noticed that fashion choices are following suit. Right now, the fashion set is gravitating toward dress styles where the volume is turned up. What that means is you’ll be sure to see plenty of luxe fabrics like satin and velvet, bold pops of red, and feather-adorned pieces that all feel festive and a little “extra.”

After combing through Instagram, it’s clear that fashion girls are flocking to the buzziest brands for cool dress styles at the moment. Labels like Attico and Nanushka are dominating their closets, but they’re also making room in their wardrobes for pieces from newly launched brand Rotate. Ahead, I’m breaking down the coolest dresses on the fashion scene now. Scroll on to see how fashion girls are wearing the dresses defining cool styles right now and then shop them for yourself.

Nanushka is a well-loved brand among the fashion set, and this cutout style is one of the most popular dresses of the moment. Here is Who What Wear’s editor in chief, Kat Collings, wearing hers.

What better time than the holidays to wear feather-adorned dresses? I fell in love with this strapless version from LPA. This one has been so popular that it already sold out, but now you can preorder it.

French girl AnneLaure Mais is clearly in agreement about how dresses with feathers are cool.

Puffy sleeves have been around for a few seasons, but they’re showing no signs of slowing down.

Newly launched brand Rotate has one of the most coveted versions around, and you can snap it up in pink or black.
