As a rush of holiday parties start, the quest for the perfect party dress begins. From demure LBD’s to over-the-top glitzy party frocks, there’s an overwhelming array of options. But once you home in on what sort of statement you’d like to make — for example, girlie, understated or edgy —  pulling together a look is less daunting. Holiday festivities are the perfect excuse to take your look to the next level of glamour, so get ready to pull out all the stops and shine into a new year!
