The lights are strung. The halls are decked. You’re totally in the holiday spirit. Now for the pièce de résistance – your party dress! Here are 5 of our favorites styles, all under $100. Ready, set, shop!

1. Peplum: Peplum has been popping up everywhere this season! The look is fierce, tailored, and impeccably chic for the holidays. What’s so merry about this cut is that it works on most body types. You just need to make sure the peplum hits at the swell of your waist, and that the length and fit of the dress are the right proportions. For those of you brave fashionistas who are willing to push the envelope a bit, opt for a dress with leather peplum for an extra dose of texture and trend.

2. Jeweled: The holiday season screams jewels and anything that shines, so we absolutely love a dress with an eye-catching, embellished collar. This is a huge trend right now and looks beautiful when paired with a dress in a rich jewel tone. This look is a great way to kick things up a notch and really wow the crowd this year.

3. Knee Length: We LOVE the new cocktail dress length this season and hope you will too! Dresses are traveling back in time with the latest craze: knee length and below-the-knee dresses. The look is classic and chic, and best of all you won't need tights to stay warm! Depending on your height, you may want to get the dress tailored to the appropriate length. In general, taller ladies can get away with mid-calf length more often, while the shorter crowd should stick to dresses that hit right below the knee and no longer.

4. Flare: What would the holiday season be without a little whimsy? We are obsessed with the light and youthful look of this season’s new flare cut dresses. This cut looks great finished off with a pair of tights and a cute pair of booties. Look for interesting textures and cool prints to add yet another dimension.

5. Sequins: The holidays wouldn't be complete without some flashy sequins! A sparkling dress still stands out on our list of must-haves because it encompasses the whole spirit of this time of year. The look is fun, glitzy, and effortless! We love a long sleeve sequin number with a chic pair of pointy pumps. (Below: BB Dakota Neva Sequin Fitted Dress, $98)
