holiday party dresses
I started looking for an ethical holiday party dress and fell in love with so many, I thought you might want to see them too. Whether you are on the hunt for some elegant Christmas party dresses or love looking at sexy party dresses in general, we have some for you!
I’ll start with the two dresses that I bought this year. One of my favorite sustainable formal dresses I found and bought was this wrap dress from Amour Vert. It’s from an ethical company that focuses on sustainable organic fabrics made locally in San Francisco, and this one is from Reformation, which uses dead stock fabrics and is made in Los Angeles.
sexy party dresses tips
You can always head into your local thrift store to buy insanely gorgeous sustainable formal dresses, but I also wanted to share some tips for online shopping as well.
- Get measured or measure yourself before shopping. You’ll need to know your measurements for your hips, waist, and bust. Having these measurements will ensure that when you go through the Christmas party dresses, you pick one that fits well.
- Consider all the different styles out there. You can pick fitted dresses, wrap dresses, scoop necks, a-line skirts, and so much more.
- Remember, when shopping for holiday party dresses, you need something you can wear multiple times to get lots of use out of it.

Naturally, you can wear them to Christmas and other holiday gatherings. They are also great for weddings, formal dinners, and any other events you have. It’s important to get lots of wear out of them!
