Steal the Show: 5 Luxurious Teal/Purple Cocktail Dresses for the Holidays

Before you know it, the holidays are here and you'll need the cocktail dress to steal the show. Since you want to be the star of the party (but not seem like you're trying too hard) you don't want to be in a LDB. Thus, the perfect choice would be purple or teal -- the hottest colours of the season. I bring you 5 choices bursting with rich violets, plums, turqoises and teals. Best of all, did I mention they are all under $400!
1. Shoshanna Strapless Multi Pleat Dress -- $375 at Shopbop, comes in both teal and plum!

2. Black Halo Bustier Detail Pleated Mini Dress -- $325 from Shopbop
It's so cute, has the right cuts to huge your curves and show off a little neck...this can go from work with a blazer to drinks after hours.

3. Karen Millen Pretty Hem Detail Organza Dress --$256 from ASOS
The detail is exquisite and the organza add uber amounts of feminity, oh yes, and the lush wine colour, who can resist?

4. Shoshanna Tie-Neck Dress -- $330 at Neiman Marcus
Feel like going back in time? Try this teal jacquard neck tie dress that has just the right amount of retro vibe. A bit of shoulder and a bit of sassy and a whole lot of personality!

5. Madison Marcus Galaxy Degrade Dress -- $243.60 at StandardStyle -- it's on Sale!! (Such a steal!)
I love the tiers in this dress, gives it so much movement. As well, the colours remind me of the ocean, I can stare at this dress all day. It is definitely mesmerizing...
