Party Dresses for Women Over 40

December 2, 2016

Tired of sorting through low-cut, body-con, and mini dresses trying to find a party dress for a grown up woman? No worries … I did the sorting through for you! Here are 50 party dresses to choose from, perfect for us mature party chicks!

So many pretty dresses in different prices ranges ($29 – $498), all perfect for a holiday party! Many of these choices also come in petite and plus size.  And many of them are even on sale! You’ll also find a cute jumpsuit or skirt here and there that I just had to include.


What parties are you dressing up for this year?  My husband’s company is having a big to-do in San Francisco this year, so I can’t wait to dress up for that!  I’ll also be attending several more casual get-togethers for the holidays.  It’s always fun to look and feel special for this magical time of year!

    I’ve never been fond of tight dresses or those with plunging necklines, even when I was much younger (save for that one time when I walked out of the house wearing a lace corset bra, a leather mini and OTK boots, a tale for another day). Even in my normal everyday wear, I tend to buy clothes slightly larger because, well, they’re just more comfy, and that mindset extends to my special occasion pieces too 🙂 because of that, I often get clothes from Rent A Runway 🙂

    What a fabulous roundup of dresses! For formal Holiday parties I love to wear a vintage style dress, something different! I shop at Consignment Shops or sites like ThredUp, to find a unique festive dress. By shopping second hand, I can find an original piece, usually worn once or twice at a great price! Have fun at your party, can’t wait to see what you put together!
