    Red is one of those colors we associate with Christmas. Historians reveal that this ties back to medieval symbols, to a time when only royals wore purple and our world was a simpler, much less stimulating place.  Western societies don’t necessarily teach color symbolism to their kids any more, but how many of you had a red velvet Christmas dress when you were a kid? The tradition hangs on. A red party dress for Christmas just seems right, especially since there’s a shade of red that looks great on everyone. Try these four red party dresses, for starters.

    Wine red lace dress with open back

    A floral lace motif and sequins give this red lace dress a festive air. I’d call this a “wine red” dress, and its blue undertones would look great on those with a summer or winter complexion (just about all of us!). The open back of this party dress is a nice punch.

    All hail the queen! Embellished cap sleeves wrap over the shoulder, giving a royal touch to this red ruched dress. The race car red color is a good choice for the spring and autumn complexions.  This is a good semi formal dress for business cocktail receptions as well as family celebrations or New Year’s out with friends.

    One shoulder red chiffon

    Next choice: a red one shoulder dress embellished with sparkling beads. Imagine yourself gliding across the room with soft layers billowing both back and front. In case you’ve got future parties in mind, this semi formal dress is available white or black.

    Graceful gathers in this sleeveless red dress

    Finally, keyhole accents give this modern red cocktail dress a sassy kick. The gentle gathers and embellished waistband combine together with the red to create a dress that’s not just for Christmas parties, imho. That’s probably why it’s available in a host of dark colors!

    What do you think of my red Christmas dress choices? Color psychologists have shown that men consider women wearing red dresses or standing near a red background more attractive than those not… maybe this motivates you to wear a red party dress this holiday season!

    Long nights, twinkling stars and a calendar studded with invites… it’s time for the end of year festivities! Strapless dresses are a great choice for holiday parties. Depending on the party, you’ve got loads of styling opportunities, whether it is a family celebration, work reception or New Year’s Eve at the club. Here’s 4 strapless dresses that I would love to wear to holiday parties.

    For me,  the skin tone fabric trend is totally irresistible. This sequin strapless party dress by Scala has a golden tone embellished in geometric patterns. The look is very luxurious and extremely flattering. There’s a confidence and determination in this strapless dress that sparks with élan.

    Looking for that glimmer but don’t want the embellishment? Try this metallic print strapless party dress. Its white bandage style skirt and draped bodice remind me of snow and stars. There’s loads of opportunities to style this strapless dress for nights out all year long. Could this be your next “go to” party dress?

    A wonderful strapless chiffon dress with beads

     

    For those who love the sweetheart neckline, then you’ll love this formal dress. Swirling chiffon layers fan out in a strapless gown with a beaded bodice. I love the classic motif chosen in the beading.  It lends a certain opulence while maintaining that romantic air.

    Then compare this strapless chiffon dress. Sleek, with geometric motifs in the beading, this long dress looks completely different. Similar materials create an entirely different look. The designers at Alyce Paris definitely consider the personalities of their clients.

    For more than 20 years, family owned Faviana International has created head turning gowns for all special occasions. In their formal and semi formal dress lines, Faviana designers capture the red carpet trends, interpreting them for prom, wedding, gala and cocktail events. With Ashley Benson as their brand ambassador, this focus won’t fade.

    Here’s Ashley wearing chiffon layers in a strapless sweetheart style. This long evening gown catches the current fascination with sequins, beads and  “barely there pink.” The chiffon skirt of this empire waist dress has a high low and floor length layers, creating extra movement in timeless style.  Bead and sequin edging plunges into the center of the ruched bodice.  It’s a dress style that looks great on most figure types and is available in a variety of colors.

    Another great thing about Faviana dresses: the range of sizes! Whether you’re a petite who has difficulty finding a size 0 that fits or a plus size with the same problem, Faviana dress sizes range from 0 to 24W.

    This beautiful plus size sequined evening dress also features an embellished bodice.  The asymmetrical gathered waist band adds a special zing to a flattering long gown.  I love the vibrant orchid color and the way its long skirt flows.

    Short Faviana party dress with side cut outs

    Here’s that trending navy in a Faviana short party dress. With criss cross straps anchoring an open back, the wrapped front bodice creates the impression of side cut outs. This is a fantastic dress to show off your toned back! Of course, if you love the style, but are looking for a different color, Faviana chooses palettes that let your personality shine.

    Turn to Faviana when you need a dress made with quality construction, great detail and celebrity red carpet style.
