Shopping for that special Christmas or New Years party dress is always so much fun. I love checking out numerous sites in order to find something gorgeous and outstanding. What I have noticed though, is that the majority of cocktail dresses are black. There is no doubt that black evening dresses are very beautiful and always elegant, but don’t you want to add a little bit of color to the party crowd?

So, I decided to feature “35 Amazing Christmas and New Years Party Cocktail Dresses” in all possible colors other than black. Also, since I have already listed sequined dresses here I tried to avoid them in this article as well, but it was really hard, so you will probably still find at least one designer sequined dress in this list, but not black (pure black :) ) .

I would love to know which dress you loved the most from the list below. And in case you still haven’t decided on your Holiday outfit, do it as soon as possible, you don’t want to settle for something no one else wanted, right?
