It’s time for holiday parties and that means party dresses! What better way to make an impression than to rock stunning vintage or vintage-inspired dresses? Everyone else will be wearing variations of the same dress from the high street shops, but you can show off your style and make a statement with a stylish vintage dress. So, without further ado (and because there isn’t much time left to get one!), here are some great vintage party dress choices!

Betty Draper Francis

Channel your inner Betty Draper Francis with this Back Bow Petticoat Lace Dress at Light in the Box. It’s sexy, cute and would be perfect for that office party where you want to look sexy, but not wear something too revealing. It features a bandeau silhouette, a round neckline, bow detail at the shoulder and a V open back. The peek-a-boo petticoat adds length, so as not to be too short.

Retro Dress With Pleats

Another mid-century design, this super sexy bodycon navy stretch retro dress with pleats at the bust is a great alternative to the little black dress. It’s from Miss Candyfloss and is available at I Love Vintage. It also comes in black with polka-dotted pocket detail. It is made from denim, so it’s a little more casual choice and probably wouldn’t work for more formal holiday affairs.

Close in style to the wiggle dress, you’ll have a gorgeous wiggle in your step like Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks (aka Joan P. Harris (née Holloway)) with this dress!

Going for something a bit more recent than the Roaring 20s? How about this 60s mod-inspired Metallic Chevron Dress at Ruche? It’s an elegant teal chiffon shift dress decorated with metallic silver chevrons and fully lined.  Wear with patterned tights for a more updated look.
