Our 25 perfect party dress picks, starting at just $80. By Christene Barberich & Marjon Carlos
No matter who you are--or even how much you go out--there really is no better thing to shop for than a party dress. A breed all their own, the perfect party dress is always a stunner, but it also has to push the party girl into slightly more daring fashion territory. You're not wearing it every day, so why not take a little chance, right? In our own pursuit of perfect party dresses, we found 15 that fit our list of must-haves: We've got satin, peplums, sequins, ruffles, metallics, and some bold color to contrast all that black you'll be seeing milling around the champagne fountain. Nope...no wallflowers at this season's parties.
