1. High neck red dress
This satin halterneck red dress with its high neckline is the perfect look to show a little bit of skin and be both a sexy Christmas party dress and classy Christmas dress. It’d be perfect for a work Christmas party or Christmas cocktails and is under $300.
2. The perfect classy Christmas dress for family parties
I love how versatile this long sleeve red dress is. It’s classy enough for family gatherings and work events but still festive enough with high heels to feel special. It’s the perfect dress for wearing to church, then to brunch and Sunday cocktails. As well as not having to worry about a tight fitting dress. It keeps selling out but getting restocked.
I couldn’t find anything else like it so it’s worth waiting on if you can. Otherwise this off shoulder, long sleeve red midi dress is another beautiful and classy option but more fitted.
3. The sexiest LBD to turn heads
This black mini dress is super sexy with it’s fitted body hugging style and exposed back zipper. Some LBD’s are forgettable and blend into this crowd. This LBD is the complete opposite with its gold chain detailing and is one of my top picks for LBD’s on this holiday party dress 2022 edit.
4. If you’ve got it…
This black backless satin slip dress is one of the sexiest Christmas party dresses on here. It’s made for nights out and quality time with your girls sipping bubbles. The chain straps make it more special and on trend than your average LBD.
5. Party in the back
This magenta lace detailed dress is absolutely stunning. The lace cocktail dress looks classy and formal from the front but the keyhole back is so sexy. It’d also be a super cute Winter wedding guest dress. I’m wearing it this week for date night in Denver so will try and snap some pics and add them.
6. Slinky green Christmas party dress
This cocktail dress is such a pretty shade of green and perfect for both Christmas parties and special events. If you hate your knees, this dress falls just on them. If you want a dress that’s both sexy and appropriate for your company holiday party this is it.
7. Purple perfection holiday party dress
This luxe designer dress is such a stunning color. I love the high neck and long sleeves as I’m always cold. The ruching is super flattering and this is such a great dress for all body types.
8. Black slinky one sleeve midi dress
9. Sexy red mini dress
Yes it’s another red Christmas party dress but what’s the holidays without red! This 1 long sleeve red satin dress has such beautiful details like the flattering ruched waist and elegantly draped neckline.
10. Pretty Woman
This black off the shoulder dress is such a classic. The black off the shoulder dress is sexy but there’s something about it that’s just so elegant. It’s another classy Christmas dress and style that you could wear at holiday parties and again to special events. This classic glam black off the shoulder mini dress is a great alternative for under $100 and also comes in a rich burgundy red and white. It runs a little large so if you’re smaller up top consider sizing down.
11. Not your average bodycon
This dress is perfect for taking you from the office to the office party. The high neckline and bodycon style are sexy and flattering but it’s long enough to wear to work. Add a blazer to make it even more office appropriate. The color is one of my favorite things about this dress and will stand out from the red, green, black and metallic styles. This dress is from River Island under $100.
12. Sparkle on
This sparkly black mini dress is next level with it’s structured statement shoulder. It was made for turning heads, turning up the heat in Winter and totally slays with its sequin embellished fabric, asymmetrical neckline and short hemline. With black, gold or silver strappy heels, this is one beautiful outfit and holiday party dress for 2022.
13. The Fashion Statement Maker | Glam feather dress
Glam feather styles are a big trend for Winter 2021-2022. It wouldn’t be a Christmas party dress list without a little black dress but one that’s unique. This little black dress is giving me all of the festive holiday vibes and the feathers are so in and fabulous. Throw on some strappy sandals and this is one epic holiday party outfit.
14. Golden Goddess holiday party dress 2022
It doesn’t get much more festive than a gold sequin dress for holiday parties or New Years Eve. I love long sleeve dresses for not worrying about what my arms are going to look like in photos. I’ve also been wearing a lot more gold accessories the last few years as well so this goes perfectly. I also think gold looks absolutely stunning with a festive red lip or smoky eyes and nude lips.
15. She came to party
Yes, it’s another sparkly cocktail dress but this ones bright pink and made to party! Sequins are a major trend for Winter 2021 and this dress is vibrant, sexy, on trend and a total showstopper made for dancing. It’s on my wishlist for this holiday season, where else better to wear it than here in Vegas! Shop the LPD.
16. Roaring 20’s
The roaring 20’s is back when it comes to fashion. I love the fringing on this black and crystal embellished strapless mini dress. It’s from Camila Coelho’s collection which is always fashion forward and sells out fast. It’s such a classy Christmas dress and easy to change the look of by swapping out the belt.
17. Wear white after Labor day
If you’re like me, I don’t follow the rules and think white looks really crisp and elegant in Winter. I love the ruched waist detailing and draping on this dresses silky satin material. It’s a one shoulder long ivory dress that will look just as good in Summer as it does at holiday parties.
18. Disco queen holiday party dress
The green version of this blue sparkly dress was the 1st one I added to this list and sold out fast. This stunning blue color is the new version but there’s only limited stock. The sparkly style stood out from the rest and the plunging neckline makes this sexy Christmas party dress one of my favorites. This short sleeve version is also gorgeous but kinder on the wallet: $58 cocktail dress.
19. Lady in red | Sexy Christmas party dress
A classic but sexy Christmas party dress. This red satin dress has a body hugging fit that might need Spanx but is so worth it. The straps aren’t adjustable but there is a hidden V-bar at the bust so leave your bra at home. It reminds me a bit of Jessica Rabbit and is such a great price at under $100. It’d also be great for New Years or Valentines Day.
20. Elegant green satin Christmas party dress
As much as I love satin I tend to avoid it as it’s not the most flattering in photos. Except this emerald green satin slit dress has a wrap skirt and belt which totally solves that issue. This green dress is on sale so get it before it sells out. Adds to cart…
22. Blue goddess
This classy Christmas dress is also on my Fall wedding guest dress edit as it’s such a stunning dress for special occasions. Designers are getting smart when it comes to designing satin dresses as this ones ruched as well and the draping’s stunning and so flattering.
23. Sugar Plum
This is such a sophisticated and elegant way to wear sequins that’s still fashion forward. It’s such a gorgeous rich shade of red and a total knockout. The high neck and one long sleeve is perfect for the Winter and the draping on this dress is so beautiful with a high leg slit.
24. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication
If you’re looking for a classy Christmas dress you can wear again and again for lots of different occasions this navy mini dress would be perfect. I’d style it with diamond chandelier earrings and strappy heels for holiday parties and small simple gold hoops with black or nude pumps for business meetings. I could totally see someone wearing it from dinner to the ballet to holiday get togethers with the in laws.
25. The holiday party dress 2022 or the party girl
This sequin cut out and high low hem is the ultimate party dress. Sequins are another one of the biggest trends for Winter 2022. This black sequin dress is incredibly sexy and fun. It’ expensive but this dress would be so fabulous at clubs and not just for Christmas parties.
26. The bombshell | From classy holiday party dress to NYE
Red is one of my favorite colors (besides pink) and this is such a powerful style that’s total bombshell but still really elegant. I find Elliatt runs true to size and their quality really good for the price. It also has non-slip silicone grip lining so no worries about flashing at your company work party! Get the dress.
Christmas Party Dresses 2022 | 21 Gowns, Maxi dresses & Jumpsuits from sexy Christmas party dresses to black tie dress codes
These stunning gowns, longer length dresses and sparkling jumpsuits are the perfect outfits and holiday party dresses for 2022. They have the most flattering cuts, beautiful colors and embellishments to stand out from the rest of the party. I’ve been adding to and updating this weekly as new styles come in and others sell out. So if you can’t find the holiday party formal gown or long dress that you’re looking for definitely check back.
27. Silver Sequin Long Sleeve Gown
When your holiday party has a black-tie dress code or you’re going to the Nutcracker this silver gown is sexier than your average gown with it’s plunging neckline. The silver sequins give this gown a truly festive feel for black tie holiday parties and would also be great for New Years Eve.
28. Bodycon sexy christmas party dress
One of my favorite holiday parties is cookie swaps as I’m a total sugar addict. This black dress would be perfect for a more casual look that can be dressed up or down. Cut outs are still a big trend for Winter 2022 but this dress is more cozy than an LBD and the materials stretchy for eating all the cookies.
29. Pretty in pink one shoulder gown
This shade of pink is my idea of pink perfection. It’s such a sweet, feminine color that’s softer than black for a formal gown. The mod asymmetrical one-shoulder sleeve and body sculpting bodice seams make this dress flawless.
30. The perfect silhouette
This black formal gown is pure elegance. I love off the shoulder gowns as they’re normally most of our favorite body parts. The cut out neckline makes it less stuffy and more fashion forward than your average black gown. It’s the ideal choice for formal events and also wrinkle resistant so you don’t get out of the car crumpled. Get it from Saks.
31. Snow Queen white formal gown
If you’re looking for a white gown for your holiday party or New Year’s Eve, this beautifully draped gown finished with a modern, sexy high-cut front slit is both chic and sexy. It also comes in pink, red, blue and cyan.
32. Trend setter | Cut out black midi dress
This is such a simple but statement making dress that you could just as easily wear on vacation or brunch with the girls. The dress is semi-sheer so you can layer it with your tights or knee high boots. I haven’t seen it in person but there’s always nipple petals if there’s any issues.
33. Holiday Siren | Red formal gown
Red gowns are so festive and perfect for Christmas time. What I love about this one shoulder dress is that the shoulder is twisted and the cut out at the front makes it a sexy and on trend holiday party dress for 2022. It could also be worn to a black tie wedding and is definitely a style for accenting your curves.
34. Midnight gold gown
The most sparkly of these holiday gowns but still a sophisticated, classy Christmas dress. If you want a holiday dress that gives a little lift this one has underwired cups. The sheer skirt is a a head turner and drop dead gorgeous. It’s the fairytale gown.
35. Sugar and Spice | High cut gown
The sexiest of these gowns. This silver and black gown couldn’t be more high cut. If your legs are your best feature, flaunt them in this sexy dress. You’re not going to blend in in this dress but you will be the best dressed.
Complete your holiday party outfit in 2022 style
Grab some strappy heels, sparkly Cinderella heels, the perfect accessories and red lipstick to complete your holiday party outfit for Christmas 2022. I’m all about the sparkly accessories to go with my holiday cocktail dresses but have also added nude and black options so it’s not overkill and you don’t look like a disco ball.
If you’re worried about being cold, logo tights are still in fashion and I wear my black Gucci logo tights all the time in Fall & Winter.
