Don’t dread those upcoming holiday parties because you have nothing to wear. We’ve found some pretty dresses (and one jumpsuit) for each of the various body types at reasonable price points. The best part though is that they can all be worn again; each is perfectly appropriate for a wedding or dressy event any time of year.
With all the sales going on right now be sure to check each store’s website before making your purchase to see if there are any additional discounts available. They usually show these deals on a banner at the top of the page or on the home page.
Now, let’s shop!

Whole Lotta Luxe Dress ($199.99/Modcloth – free shipping over $50 and free exchanges): The detail work on the bodice with the subtle point d’esprit (polka dot) pattern make this dress look much more expensive than it is. It will look beautiful on hourglass shapes but also work for straight and pear types.
Neiman Marcus Pleated Skirt Dress ($47.40/Neiman Marcus Last Call): Works especially well for pear shapes but also, hourglass and straight bodies too.

Diane Von Furstenburg Beonca Dress ($119.40/Neiman Marcus Last Call): Apples and straight figures will look fabulous in this shift-style frock. Hourglass bodies can wear it too but in their case, it should be belted. Hate your arms? The sleeves will help keep jiggly parts hidden.
Dinner Party Hostess Dress ($59.99/Modcloth – free shipping over $50 and free exchanges): Available in sizes S to 4X, this fun party dress will flatter hourglass, pear and straight body types.
Tie Print Dress ($79.99/Mango): We love, love, love the tuxedo feel of this shift dress. It will look best on apple and straight bodies.
Plunge Bandeau Jumpsuit ($115/Topshop): A jumpsuit is a chic alternative to a dress. Dress it up with a pair of heels and fabulous earrings.
