The Lust List, Holiday Dresses: The Girly Girl

The true girlie girls among us (like yours truly) wear bows, polka dots, ruffles, and feathers for any occasion without regard to rhyme, reason, or season. (Much to the dismay of beau, who often questions, “Can’t you just wear a t-shirt for once?” Answer: No, no, I cannot.) Thanks to brands like Kate Spade, Whit, Anthropologie, and J.Crew feminine trimmings are now of the moment and embellish all forms of attire.

For rational, more practical ladies, it may take a special occasion—a birthday, wedding, or holiday party to get all gussied-up and girl-ified. Regardless of which category you fall into, there are some great cocktail dresses by feminine designers like Milly and Sue Wong out this season. Below are our top picks for your holiday party.

Helpful hint: If you can’t afford these price points, these dresses, and more that are similar, are available for rental on Rent the Runway.
