One of the reasons I love the holidays as much as I do is for all of the great party dresses designers roll out! Whether you have cocktail parties, workplace events, or family gatherings coming up, finding the perfect dress can be a challenge. In honor of the season, I selected some great options so you can look and feel your best wherever the holidays take you!

I love just about anything Lanvin and this dress is perfect for any holiday event you may attend. This sequin-print dress has a modest hemline, cap sleeve, and playful cowl neck—you can wear it to corporate parties, family get-togethers, and everywhere in between.

My favorite new designer Ramy Brook does it again! I purchased this fun dress in red to wear at some of my upcoming holiday events.

The dress is really festive in red, but it is also available in several colors!
3. Jay Godfrey Color Block dress, BUY NOW, $365
This one shoulder color block dress is a great party dress for everyone because of its flattering silhouette. Not only does cobalt blue work on all skin tones but the cut works on all body types.

Jacquard is a holiday favorite and must have. This J.Crew style is great for anyone who prefers to show off their natural waist line, as the dress has one sewn in for you.

6. Alice & Olivia Wrapped Goddess dress, BUY NOW, $264
The Alice & Olivia Goddess dress will keep you feeling like a Goddess no matter how many hors d’oeuvres you may find yourself eating!

This fun dress screams party and we love it for that alone. With a chiffon top and feathered skirt, it’s hard not to want to pair this dress with your favorite spiked-heel dancing shoes.
8. Topshop Reverse Panel Bodycon dress, BUY NOW, $130
The lace panels on this dress make it truly something special, not only do they make for an alluring neckline but the cut outs on the side give any waist great definition. Because this dress has a lot of character, keep your accessories to a minimum–go with a classic timepiece, a simple pair of stud earrings, and a large vintage cocktail ring. Also, try a fun up-do to show off the lace detail!
9. The Limited Color Block dress, BUY NOW, $118
The Limited color block dress is another one of those wardrobe staples. It’s simple enough to act as a great canvas for virtually any styling you may want to add to it.

Best of PageDaily Blog: From Kim Kardashian to Lanvin for H&M
Lanvin & PageDaily Heart H&M
Karl Lagerfeld, check! Stella McCartney, check! Sonia Rykiel, check! Jimmy Choo, check . . . LANVIN, HERE WE GO!
Yesterday, Melissa and I headed to the Penthouse at the Cooper Square Hotel in downtown New York to the press preview of the Lanvin for H&M collection.
As we came out of the elevator, we felt as if we’d died and gone to heaven—killer views of Manhattan, the sun was setting, there was champagne and platters of hors d’oeuvres. And the Lanvin for H&M collection front and center. LANVIN FOR H&M! We were giddy, more excited than a 10-year-old with a new puppy. The prices, the design, everything! The H&M staffers were decked in the collection, and they looked glamorous. Standouts included a one-sleeve dark purple dress with a voluminous pouf at the shoulder and thick black belt, a black cocktail dress covered with fabric bows, faux-fur coats and vests, tuxedo blazers, ruffled floral dresses, decadent-looking jewelry, and plenty of pointy shoes. The menswear collection is also a winner, so for the men in your life, don’t be selfish; they also deserve Lanvin for H&M.
We can’t wait for the line to hit H&M on November 20. We’ve already got the date in our Blackberries, and we’ll camp outside the entrance overnight if we have to! Melissa plans to scoop up the entire collection, because she’s already chosen a few favorites. I have my eye on the pointy leopard-print stilettos and a faux-fur coat that I am sure I will sleep in. —Daniela Apeloig

Whether Lanvin or Target, Leopard Print Is Now…And Forever!
I love the leopard trend this fall. The latest collection of Lanvin bags–Devine! I recommend their Leopard-Print Happy Shoulder Bag for that 50s-inspired ladylike look. And while leopard print is hot this season, a leopard accessory is always chic. This Lanvin bag is truly a timeless investment piece. For a less expensive option (read: totally affordable), Target carries the Melie Bianco Leopard Clutch for $27.98.—Melissa Meyers, Founding Editor & CEO
