25 Festive Dresses For Office Parties and Family Dinners

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

While putting out feelers for holiday dresses we were met with a surprising number flaunting sheer panels, super short hemlines, and cuts that are way too body skimming for a slice of pie (and let's be honest, there's no such thing as just one slice of pie). A mission was born: hunt down the kind of festive dresses a girl can wear to a work party or a family dinner without looking like Mistress Claus.

Find 25 contenders in the gallery for your Thanksgiving sit down, religion-rooted family celebrations, or non-discriminatory office bash. Glittery and girly or punk-revival plaid, it's all in the galley.
