It was recently brought to my attention that not every woman is interested in decking herself out from head to toe in sequins, glitter, and sparkles.  I know.  I can hardly believe it myself.  Why would you not want to risk damaging the eyes of those around you with the blinding glimmer of your festive frock?  Mind boggling really.  Well, anyway, if you are one of the lovely ladies who is just not feeling all that glitters, it would prove to be somewhat difficult to navigate the racks and racks of embellished, beaded, and rhinestoned attire.  Lucky for you, I’ve found some absolutely cocktail party appropriate frocks with nary a sequin in sight.

1. Motel High Contrast Dress, $79.99, 2. Alice + Olivia Tamira Leather Bustier Dress, $596, 3. Parker Double Flared Sleeve Dress, $209, 4. Helmut Lang Long Drape Dress, $275, 5. Tibi Long Sleeve Dress with Cutout Back, $396, 6. Diane von Furstenberg Enny Dress, $375, 7. French Connection Shelby Stripe Pleat Dress, $198, 8. Porter Grey Sleeveless Dress, $385, 9. Tibi Silk and Lace Dress, $515, 10. Issa Short Kimono Dress, $595

And wouldn’t you know?  These dresses are the perfect solid palates to adorn with some sparkly accessories.
