3 Perfect Party Dresses For Your Body Type

ILLUSTRATED BY PIETARI POSTI.
By now, there are enough reminders on your phone for holiday potlucks, white elephant gift exchanges, office bashes, and all-night Champagne ragers that the notifications are starting to blink as frenetically as your neighbor's tacky roof display. And, your wardrobe isn't ready. Solve this seasonal quandary the lazy-girl way: First, let us do all the legwork; second, choose one stellar outfit that fulfills all your partying needs. Something that won’t require a ton of time or thought to put together, but still looks amazing from the moment you step into it until the moment you saunter home. And, we believe the 33 examples ahead are just the thing.
Carefully selected for the specific body types they suit, these party frocks are made for flattering your figure. In other words, they do all the work so you can concentrate on remembering the name of your S.O.’s out-of-town cousin that you only see once a year, or planning how to make a swift exit from tonight’s party #2 in order to make it in time for party #3. ’Tis the season, and ahead, ’tis the sartorial guide for helping you get through it.
