Celebrate the weekend with brilliant color. Strapless with a ruffle front and an empire waistline that will allow you to eat, this dress will have heads turning. Also available in black. Available at Target, $39.99. If you’re looking for a dress with more classic and elegant lines, this Isaac Mizrahi is it. The slim belt will accentuate your waist and the boatneck is reminiscent of a past era. Hello, Holly Golightly! Available at Target, $69.99. I love this trapeze dress from ECI. It’s fun, flirty, and definitely chic — you cannot go wrong with a little black dress. I also love how it ties into a neat bow in the back of the neck. Best of all, you won’t have to undo your belt after eating a ton of turkey and mashed potatoes
There is an attached lining that is fitted from the bust, but gives way around the hips. Available at Nordstrom, $98. If you’re looking for something that’s more modern and has more moxie, then this dress from Adrainna Papell is just for you. Layers of purple satin glide down the skirt portion of the neck. The v-neck in the front and back allows you to have fun with a great necklace. Available at Nordstrom, $98 (on sale. Other colors available for $158. Also available in plus sizes!). If a party requires something more elegant and dressy, try these gowns that will make people roll out the red carpet for you: This red gown will make you feel like a winter princess.
The shirred side accentuates your waist and the A-line skirt will allow you to move freely. Available at Nordstrom, $98 (also comes in teal, on sale for $48.90, brown, navy and purple). Okay, so this dress is just over $100, but it’s so worth it. The style is very similar to styles from couture designer Narcisco Rodriguez and the 2006 Emmy white dress actress Julia-Louis Dreyfuss wore. Glamorous rhinestones glitter on the bodice and straps and the matte jersey gown has gracious line. Available at Nordstrom, $107.90 (on sale. Currently only available in a few sizes. I imagine they will sell out soon).
