Your holiday cal is filled to the brim with work-related happy hours, family get-togethers and dance parties with your buds. In other words: tons of stuff you need party dresses for! To ensure that you don’t run out of going-out options (and so you don’t have to search for a way to style your LBD in a brand new way again), we’ve gathered our favorite sequined dresses for you to ooh and ahhh over. Needless to say, they’re total standouts because of all that sparkle, but also are actually some of the most fuss-free lazy girl frocks on the holiday circuit (no major accessorizing necessary).
