Cutest Holiday Dresses under $25.

Photography by Deeana Kourtney Photography

     The holidays are upon us! With this special season also comes the opportunity to dress up for lots of fun events that only happen at this time of year. Along with many traditions that happen such as tree lightings, ice skating, and Christmas markets, it seems like wherever you go there are all sorts of Christmas parties to attend: everything from office parties to house parties to formal events to attend in your community. Even most colleges and schools host their own holiday festivities! And all of these special events call for different festive outfits of course. But with the holidays also being an expensive time of year (hello gift shopping!), finding party outfits on a budget can be very key. 

     This fun polka dot dress that I am wearing here would be perfect for any sort of holiday party, and amazingly it's under $20!! Talk about a bargain! This dress looks great with pops of holiday reds thrown in against it, which I did by pairing it with dressy red pumps, and a bold lipstick. Now all that you would need is a holiday party!

     My dress is from SheIn, which sells some really cute fashion pieces for amazing prices. They're a great shopping destinations if you're looking for an outfit for a certain event but don't want to spend a lot of money. I've rounded up some other SheIn dresses below that I think would be perfect for all types of Christmas and NYE parties (and everything else in between!):


    Have you gotten your holiday party dresses yet, and do you have any fun holiday events to attend soon? I'm headed to a housewarming party tomorrow night, and then my roommate and I are throwing a Christmas party for our friends next weekend- and I'm so excited already!
