The Best Party Dresses to Buy This Week

If you're in the market for a new party dress, we've got you covered. Whether they're totally, completely new (as in, they landed in stores yesterday) or just awesome in other ways (thanks to the cut, fabric, color or something else entirely), the dresses below are this week's best bets.

With that unusual length and gorgeous fabric, this looks way more expensive than it is. Wear it to a wedding with simple jewelry and pointy-toed pumps. And rest assured: since it's an online exclusive, less people are likely to have it. (Though, of course, lots of them will want it.)

One of our current favorites from Net-a-Porter's new arrivals section. It's got a soft, drapey one-shouldered neckline and the best bold red hue; basically, it's power dressing at the its prettiest. Or, in other words, it's ideal for parties where you know you'll see your ex-boyfriend.

In case you forgot (I did), Daylight Saving Time begins this weekend. Bust out a spring-colored dress, but just make sure it's not too skimpy. May temperatures haven't kicked in yet.

If simple and sweet aren't your thing, go snakeskin—it's one of spring's biggest trends thanks to Erdem, Proenza Schouler and Gucci. Wear this version with bedhead and smudgy eyeliner to that new speakeasy bar you've been dying to try.

This new addition to Zara's stock could easily jump from a parental dinner to a best friend's birthday party. To make the transition, just swap ladylike heels for ankle boots, or stash a punchy lipstick or subversive piece of jewelry in your clutch. It's that easy.

Another good way to celebrate the almost-springness of early March: florals. (Duh.) This just-landed-at-ASOS-yesterday number is both sweetly patterned and body-conscious, so it's both girl-pretty and guy-friendly. Gotta love that.
