Whenever the holiday season rolls around, I stare at my closet waiting for something to inspire my party outfit. My normal dresses never seem festive enough for holiday party attire, so I always end up adding sparkly fingernails or a pair of shiny pumps. But velvet party dresses are absolutely perfect for holiday parties, and this year you’ll find them everywhere.
While velvet party dresses are fun, they do have a downside: they’re not versatile and are tricky to wear in other seasons. However, with plenty of cheap options available – like the one below from American Apparel, and more at Forever 21, Topshop, and H&M – it isn’t like a velvet dress is an investment piece.
