The Christmas season is around the corner, and holiday parties are about to begin. But what to wear? Sequined shirts rub and bite the tender parts of the arm; Christmas sweaters have a tendency to be a bit over the top; and body con dresses look oh so good, but are difficult to wear. So what is the perfect Christmas party outfit?

There is one type of dress that is a reliable ally during the holiday party season: sweater dresses. To some people, wearing a sweater dress seems like a daunting idea, but they can be your best friend during a party. There are endless reasons for wearing one, but here are the top three reasons to choose a sweater dress for dazzling at your next Christmas party.

No one wants to spend hours at a party focusing on the discomfort of their clothes. You should be having fun, not constantly itching, adjusting, or feeling generally uncomfortable. 

Sweater dresses are extremely comfortable to wear. No buckles or other contraptions to fight, no crazy low neckline to worry about, and no crinoline or other strange fabrics to irritate the skin. The cashmere, wool, or other cozy fabrics caress your skin in a divinely warm hug, leaving you comfortable all day. 

They come in all sorts of styles, so if tight clothes are not your jam, you can rest in the loose comfort of your sweater dress. They can be long or short, high necked, low necked, and everything in between. Your comfort is what matters with a sweater dress, so you can spend more time having fun.

When you wear a sweater dress, you are not locked into only one way to accessorize. Sweater dresses can be worn with boots, heels, or even sneakers. You get to choose what is the best look for your event, instead of being stuck with only one look. You can wear leggings, or jeans, or the dress all on its own. 

The sweater dress look is versatile, so you can choose a scarf or a necklace or just choose to showcase the beauty of your dress. You never have to worry about making a perfectly coordinated outfit with a sweater dress, because it will coordinate so well with just about anything. Turn heads again and again with your dress as your wingman as you breeze through the holiday season.

The reason people often hesitate to wear a sweater dress is that they aren’t sure if it will look good. Take the time to find the style of sweater dress that flatters your shape. There are so many beautiful dress designs available, but not every type will flatter every body shape. Pick a dress that mimics the shape you would pick in a different style of dress. You don’t want to look like you are drowning in a potato sack when you could be rocking an eye-catching sweater dress that’s completely perfect for you.

There is a sweater dress out there to flatter every shape: curvy or willowy, tall or petite. Once you have found the perfect dress, you will be set for the holiday party season with a flatteringly beautiful outfit. It is easier to have fun and feel confident when you know just how good you look in your dress.
