Cynthia Rowley

When everyone asks where you found this head-turning tulle dress, you'll get to say it's Cynthia Rowley by way of Amazon. 

Midi Desi Dress
Amazon
Likely

If you add Likely's sleek dress to your closet for a New Year's Eve party, it'll most likely become a year-round pick for all your formal events. There's something about the contrast between the floaty feather trim and sharp leg slit we can't get enough of.

Cosmic Check Midi Dress
Amazon
Sister Jane
Now 30% off

Layered with a sleek bodysuit underneath or a cardigan tied over your shoulders, Sister Jane's tartan is a less obvious entry to holiday dressing. And we can't say no to those spacious pockets.

Phyllis Dress
Amazon
Cinq a Sept
Now 30% off

One look at this tiered dress, and we knew it was meant for twirling on a dance floor with a pair of comfortable heels. But the loose silhouette can also transition to daywear with tall boots and a light jacket.

Sweater Dress
Amazon
Sokie Collective

If you're the sort of holiday dresser who prefers to keep it comfortable, this under-$200 sweater dress is for you. The sweetheart neckline lends the stretch knit an elevated touch and shows off your favorite necklaces.

Twisted Front Sequinned Mini Dress

Some holiday styles are impervious to trends. This Dundas mini dress is one of them: Its all-over sequins will sparkle under any party lights. 

Love Story Maxi Dress
