Top 5: Perfect Party Dresses

We all know that December is a BUSY month! From shopping for gifts, to get-togethers with family and friends, to kiddie holiday concerts and plays…there’s a lot going on. With all this on your plate, how’s a busy fashionista like you supposed to find the time to pick out the perfect party dress? Don’t worry, I’ve got you! This year’s holiday dresses are anything but boring. Reach for show-stopping dressed covered sequins or glitter or in bold red hue or go classic and luxe with lace or velvet and pair with sparkling shoes and accessories.

Here are our ‘Girl in Focus’ Aly Armstrong’s Top 5 party dresses, all available at Coquitlam Centre.


I don't know about you, but a sequined dress doesn't exactly fit into my daily wardrobe which makes it that much more party perfect!

Sequin Dress available at H&M $59.99*


I'm in love with velvet dresses right now. So luxurious, so decadent SO Holiday. Shoulder cut-outs update this classic long sleeved velvet dress and allow you to show off a little skin...Santa won't mind.

Calvin Klein Cold-Shoulder Velvet Dress available at Hudson's Bay $169*


Red is so HOT right now, plus it's perfect for the holidays. Add a little extra glam with a statement necklace and heels to go from office appropriate to party ready.

Red Bell-Sleeved Dress available at H&M $49.99*;


It wouldn't be a Top 5 list without a lace dress! This one from Le Chateau features scalloped edges and a low back.

Long Sleeved Lace Dress available at Le Chateau $150*;


Stand out in a glittery dress this holiday season. Again, it's not exactly an everyday dress but then again, this isn't just any day! It's the holidays!
