So many events, so little time—that's why the holiday party dress is such a crucial part of one's wardrobe this time of year. It'll get you through Thanksgiving dinner with the family, end-of-year work functions, and festive outings with friends. And while you have a few silhouettes that never let you down (LBD, we love you so), there's no hurt in shopping around for updated pieces that feel festive and modern. We found six perfect holiday party dress ideas that fit the bill, plucked straight from Fashion Week street style. Read on for a season's worth of inspiration.

The LBD has never let you down, we know. But this holiday, for the sake of switching things up, reach for its thematically on-point sibling, the Little Red Dress. A long-sleeve, ruffle-trimmed mini, like the one Camila Cabello wore to Paris Fashion Week, feels very festive.

The holidays give us license to wear sequins any time, anywhere. That applies to daytime soirees—just top it with a long printed overcoat to tone down the sparkle.

Holiday dressing very much encourages a "more is more" approach. So why pick between the top prints of the season when you can simply wear them all at once? Take it from Eva Chen: Colorful plaid and snakeskin make for a surprising good pairing.

Don't discount the holiday party outfit potential of a shirtdress: A printed style with a flared-out skirt makes for a dramatic look.

You can't get through the holidays without at least one velvet party outfit. Play up this seasonal staple with on-trend updates, like a midlength skirt, poufed sleeves, and vintage-inspired floral embellishments.

Leave the animal prints for your daytime looks. Once the sun sets, break out the colorful variations on the trend.
