Christmas is the most fun and festive day of the year—we’ve literally waited 364 days for this. So let’s dress like it, shall we? A season full of gatherings with friends and family calls for a look that’s got enough joy yard-for-yard to handle them all, and I think I’ve found the perfect one.
Today’s 30 Dresses In 30 Days frock is the Fringe Floral Cocktail Dress by Marchesa Notte. Best part? It’s 50% off (!!!) during Net-A-Porter’s Black Friday sale. When I first got it out of the bag I legit just stared at it for a while like it was a Renoir. There’s just so much to take in. How many fun details can we work into one dress I wonder? Floral embroidery, bell sleeves, Swiss dot mesh (swoon), and a classic sheath shape? Check, check, check, check. It’s a dress that can party day or night, and, if you have any Christmasy black-tie occasions this season, they also made it in gown version. Also 50% off. AND I’M IN CARDIAC ARREST.
Speaking of Black Friday sales, if you didn’t check out my post earlier this week on the best winter tights, read up here. Many of the brands are included in Black Friday sales, including the sheer tights by Spanx I’m wearing today. For a full round-up of Black Friday Sales, check out this post.
All of the festive details included in this dress make it feel unique, and appropriate for a day this special. Accessorize simply, and opt for a classic beauty routine that’s both family and no-filter friendly. But, it’s Christmas after all, so if you’re not going with a red lip today, then when?
Need more Christmas inspiration? You’re in luck. Today I’ve enlisted the help of four of my most stylish friends to share what they plan on wearing come December 25th. Spoiler alert: I want them all. Check out their dress picks and styling tips below along with more of my favorite Christmas Day dress options!

I think this is the perfect dress for any Christmas Party. It works for family, friends and work-related events. It’s classy, chic and flattering for several body types. You can also dress it down with some black suede booties or dress it up with some sexy stilettos.

The Noel Dress is one of my favorite dresses from our Rachel Parcell holiday collection. Everything from the lace trims, the fit to the custom dyed embroidered organza. This dress makes a beautiful statement and will leave you looking absolutely breathtaking. I love pairing it with a nude or gold sheen pump and a bold lip!

I really love the structured shape of this dress, the strong shoulders create such a bold statement for any upcoming party! It’s really the ideal holiday dress for me because it’s subtle with the sequin detailing and it would look so good with a leather jacket and pointed ankle boots. Adding in more casual pieces like that with this dress, balances everything out! However, if you really wanted to jazz it up, you could pair it with a strappy black heel and a dark lip and have yourself a night out!

I love this raspberry red flutter sleeve dress because of the festive color (it’s literally perfect for Christmas!) and the ultra flattering silhouette. I always opt for a midi length dress because they’re appropriate to wear anywhere and easy to dress up or down. This is such a versatile piece that you can 100% wear throughout the year. I plan on wearing it with strappy gold sandals and a tan clutch for Christmas Day festivities! So feminine and flirty!
