It s hard to go wrong with the little black dress.

T is the season to dress up for no reason at all.

Holiday parties, New Year’s Eve dinners or even just entertaining guests, that little black dress will come in handy multiple times over the next couple of weeks.

Here are five different styles to choose from this holiday season.

1 Secretery Dress

Macy’s, 1900 29th St., Boulder

The high-waisted and belted skirt with a red or white blouse top will look smoking hot with fishnet tights (classy ones, ladies). Throw on a pair of black heels and be sure to stay out of the photo copy room because the boys will follow.

2 The wrap dress

Target, 2800 Pearl St., Boulder

The wrap dress can be dressed up or dressed down to make the perfect party accessory. Throw on some sparkly jewelry and a pair of red heels. Just make sure that dress wrap sash is tied tight. We don’t need to see those red panties. Or lack thereof …

3 The sweater dress

Nordstrom Rack, 130 East Flatiron Circle, Broomfield

Just because it’s a sweater, doesn’t mean it can’t be sexy. Pair one of these dresses with black tights and biker boots for that edgy party look. Nordstrom Rack has a good selection of designer sweater dresses for pretty cheap.

4 The funky dress

Urban Outfitters, 934 Pearl St., Boulder

Go for that original, vintage look at the party. Get a high-shouldered polka dot dress, a fluttered or fringed dress, a zip-front or architectural dress. Point being, if you want to mirror Serena in “Gossip Girl,” Urban Outfitters has got you covered. And the prices aren’t too bad, either.

5 The sparkly dress

Forever 21, 14694 Orchard Pkwy., Westminster

This is the one month you can get away with over-sparkling yourself. Go crazy and get a full-on sequined dress. It’s the end of a decade, let’s go crazy. Or, get a sequined mini and pair it with a cute top, accented with strands and strands of pearls.
