Festive Christmas and New Year’s Eve fashion might just be my favorite, especially because of REVOLVE holiday dresses, which never fail to deliver drama, fun, and, of course, sparkle.
Holiday dresses are one of the areas where REVOLVE shines most. Each year, the online retailer partners with designers for glittering exclusive styles, curating the best of the site into The Holiday Shop, a one-stop destination for winter holiday dressing and gifting.
REVOLVE offers free two-day shipping and returns, which makes it easy to dress for those last-minute invites and send back what just doesn’t fit quite right.
Styles sell out ultra-fast (sometimes the same day they’re released). If you see something you love, snatch it up quickly, or it may be months before it’s restocked, if it is at all!
For as much as I love REVOLVE, I have to admit that their incredible inventory can be overwhelming to sort through. I’ve done the work for you—these are the best REVOLVE holiday dresses for your Christmas and NYE outfit needs.

Sau Lee has done it again. One of my favorite labels for party-ready fashion, Sau Lee never fails to deliver on styles that exude playfulness in a timeless approach.
The Natasha Dress is no exception. The qi pao-inspired cocktail dress features metallic tweed in a fiery red hue that practically screams Christmas cheer. You’ll be able to wear this one from December through Lunar New Year.
The Nicholas Ambra Halter Neck Gown with Necklace puts school back in session with its sheer amount of class. The rich forest green maxi dress exudes elegance, given a sparkly touch with hardware around the neckline.
Between the allover sequins and wonderfully festive color, there isn’t a dress on this list that seems to embody the spirit of Christmas in New York more than the Michael Costello x REVOLVE Giselle Dress.
This gown may not exactly be understated, but it is a knockout, especially when paired with glossy red heels to match. Wear it to a black tie holiday party, or play hostess with the mostest at your own.
Metallic plisée queen Sabina Musayev’s frocks might as well be the uniform for the holiday season. The Ray Dress, a tiered gold maxi dress, features darling black bow detail on the shoulders, differentiating it from the designer’s popular Skylar Dress (another great pick).
If anyone wants to know what I want for Christmas this year, turn to the REVOLVE x Opè Mini Dress.
You’ll be the Snow Queen at your next holiday party in the REVOLVE x Opè Mini Dress. Mixed media embellishment covers the unique cocktail dress, complete with ruffle sleeve detail.
This dress is sheer. If you’re not comfortable with the naked dress look, wear a formfitting nude slip for easy lining, or pick from one of these other REVOLVE holiday dresses.

Deck the halls in the Alice + Olivia Bina Mini Dress, a flouncy, bright red number that fits in at any holiday event. Seriously, this adorable mini dress just belongs in your closet, even if you don’t have an event in mind right now—it might just be my favorite Christmas dress on this list.
The twirl-worthy cocktail dress features a voluminous circle skirt and layered ruffle sleeves in textured jacquard. The dress’ smocked back ensures that the bustier bodice fits your body perfectly.
Not all holiday parties demand dressy attire. For those that don’t, the House of Harlow 1960 x REVOLVE Aaron Knit Dress is a casual, comfortable option that still gives nod to the season with a burgundy hue.
An engineered knit ensures that this sweater dress hugs your curves, as does the included tie belt that provides extra waist definition. The belt could easily be swapped out for something leather, velvet, or metal to dress this number up. Finish the look with statement gold earrings for extra cheer.
The LPA Aurora Dress is a piece you’ll wear long past the holiday season and for years to come, trust. This dress reminds me so much of my favorite Veronica Beard dress, which I’ve worn everywhere, from dinner in Central Park to weddings—it never gets old.
Decadent brocades and jacquards are a true hallmark of the holiday season. A good black and metallic gold or silver brocade can be worn season over season and typically satisfies the dress code for any party.
The Alice + Olivia Fay Babydoll Tie Strap Dress takes this holiday staple to princess-worthy new heights. A gathered circle skirt is paired with luxe velvet tie shoulder straps for festive glam. Bring out the velvet by styling this dress with black velvet heels, pearl earrings, and a headband.
If Wednesday Addams attended a Christmas party, the LIKELY Pirro Dress would be her dress of choice. The puff sleeve minidress is equal parts sweetheart and vamp. Play up the sweetheart with bow pumps, or lean into your vampy side with platform heels.
After the holiday season is over, wear this dress on a dinner date, wedding, or to drinks at a fabulous cocktail lounge with the girls.

This wine colored gown might just be one of the most versatile REVOLVE holiday dresses you’ll ever own. The minimalist design of the Katie May Mary Kate Gown makes it a perfect black tie winter wedding guest dress. When accented with a statement necklace, it also blends nicely into a formal Christmas party.
The gown’s rich color makes it festive, but not so festive that you won’t be able to wear this again as a fall wedding guest dress or to a gala later on.
Although all that glitters during the holiday may not be gold, there’s no reason it can’t be, like the Amanda Uprichard x REVOLVE Talena Dress.
Though it’s easy to imagine wearing the V. Chapman Patisserie Dress while strolling down the Champs-Élysées and popping into Pierre Hermé, the charming little black dress fits just as well into a holiday party, especially when paired with embellished black heels and chandelier earrings.
This dress has a forgiving smocked back; however is known to run small. Consider sizing up if you’re between sizes.
REVOLVE holiday dresses don’t need to fit cookie-cutter color choices like red, gold, black, and silver—the Nookie Paris Mini Dress is a clear example.
The mini dress’ plush velvet brings the festive spirit, as does the deep fuchsia hue—an unexpected but thoroughly appropriate color choice for a holiday party dress and a bold statement for a New Year’s Eve dress.
A dress named after a classic cocktail—how appropriate.
Similar in style to the popular Allora Dress, the Amanda Uprichard Gimlet Dress has quickly become a favorite amongst it-girls for any event demanding cocktail attire. The flirty cocktail dress has been released in multiple colors, most recently, a festive fire engine red.
