‘Tis the season to sparkle and shine. ‘Tis the season to sip champagne from crystalline flutes as change hangs heavy in the air. ‘Tis also the season for party dresses and treating yourself, and we’re here to make this part of the season as sweet as possible. We’ve rounded up holiday dresses for each zodiac sign, so you have some cosmic insight into your perfect party dress. You can also look for the dress that correlates to your venus and rising signs to really see what your vibe is. And don’t take these cosmic vibes from us — we tapped astrologer and founder of The Midheaven, Amelia Quint, to help make sure these pieces are true to the zodiac and the qualities each of us possess from our sign.
But beware: If you’re in the market for a plain, simple party dress, this is not the list for you. Here you’ll find true decadence in the name of the holiday spirit. We’ve found cranberry metallics and beaded iridescent blues, metallic minis and show-stopping shoulders. There are sequins and leather, gold gilded accents, and plenty of shine. If you’re ready to embrace the holiday season like the piece of divinity you are, then read on. Whether you’re wearing these to your family’s Christmas or Hanukkah party, out on New Year’s Eve, or to hit up the town with your loved ones, you’ll be turning heads and repping your sign.
1. Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th)
Capricorn, we know you love your classics, but we know you love to shake it up in the name of glamour too.

You have the elegance to pull this off, no worry necessary.
2. Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th)
This metallic dress is Jetsons meets Courtney Love, which is kind of your thing, water bearer. You need a dress that feels a little rebellious, and with this metallic fabric you’re sure to stand out. We love the idea of pairing this with even more metallic to really get that futuristic Aquarius look going. Add some holographic highlighter to really pull it all together.
3. Pisces (February 19th-March 20th)
We love your depths, Pisces, and though it may be hard to match this in a dress, we think this pick comes close.

If you want to seal the deal, you could also select some gold accessories and paint your lips bright red.
