I don’t know if you people realize it yet, but there are officially only two weekends left before Christmas. I repeat, TWO WEEKENDS LEFT. For some reason, no one seems to understand how close it is this year, something to do with Thanksgiving being late, IDK. That being said, if you still haven’t comprehended the fact that Christmas itself is so close, then I assume you also haven’t registered that the holiday party that seemed light-years away is actually right around the corner. Fortunately, whether it’s your stuffy corporate holiday party or friend’s apartment party you forgot about, you can get away with ordering a nice holiday dress at a decent price, at the last minute, thanks to Amazon Prime.
1. Velvet Long Sleeve Bodycon, $22.99
This square neck velvet long-sleeve dress is simple, stylish, and easy because you can get it for under $30 and via Amazon Prime. Its emerald holiday color in combination with its elevated velvet texture, give it a dressed-up holiday feel.
2. DIDK Tunic Dress, $17.99
This dress has all the attributes of a perfect holiday dress, but it errs more on the conservative side, making it a good option for a company party where you can’t show too much skin without hearing from HR the next day. The dress is not only elegant, it’s unique and festive with the faux pearl details on the sleeves. Wear it with tights or over-the-knee boots, and your holiday outfit is complete.
3. BEAGIMEG One Shoulder Backless Dress, $32.99
This dress is elegant, perfect for a more upscale holiday party that you also happen to need a last-minute dress for. It’s formal without being over-the-top, unless of course you’re going to a casual holiday party, in which case then yes, this dress might be a bit over-the-top.
4. Glam and Gloria Ombre Glitter Sequin Dress, $49.90
This long-sleeve metallic sequin dress is the epitome of holiday. The sequins elevate it from being an otherwise basic bodycon dress. If you were to just judge this one on its name, “Ombre Glitter Sequin Dress”, you’d immediately hard pass. But like, after seeing it, you’ve got to admit, it’s actually pretty cute, right? Just picture it paired with some strappy nude heels and a simple clutch—it’s such a Kardashian-esque holiday ~lewk~.
5. WEEPINLEE Long Sleeve Ruffle Dress, $23.98
I’m obsessed with the simplicity and effortless elegance of this dress. The ruffle detailing dresses it up and the jewel tone color makes it holiday-appropriate. I know it will be tempting but, whatever you do, do not, I repeat DO NOT pair it with a statement necklace. Even though the simplistic high neck will tempt you otherwise, trust me here, just opt for a relatively calm statement earring for a way more stylish option.
I kind of feel like Amazon Prime is the fairy godmother I never had, just out here making all my dreams come true. But like, if my pumpkin-turned-carriage was a random man who repeatedly ignores my note on the door to put my package in the backyard and not on my city doorstep for strangers walking by to help themselves to. But like, basically the same thing.
