10 Metallic Party Dresses

We’re entering the time of year when simple gals like me get a little giddy about metallics. A sparkly metallic party dress might wait in my closet all year for holiday parties for it’s time to shine. If you’re still shy about wearing metallics, even during the silver and gold holiday season, I would try out a more classic styled dress accented with metalic sheen, rather than a tight body con metallic dress that will accentuate every curve- wanted or unwanted! They’re really a lot of fun to wear, and make you feel extra festive!

I’ve rounded up 10 of my favorite metallic party dresses for 2013, which don’t need to sit in your closet all year until the holidays. These dresses are great for parties or nights out any time of the year!
