Along with visions of twinkling lights and cozy weekends cuddled up with hot chocolate, the phrase "holiday season" conjures up another scene—a parade of parties for which everyone wants to look their smashing best. From work functions to a best friend's annual brunch bash and every glittering soiree up until New Year's Eve, stylish women everywhere are expected to bring their fashion "A" game. 

We're here to help you do just that—without going broke. Whether you identify your style personality as classic, downtown-edgy, boho or glam, we've got multiple dresses for under $100 that will help you make an entrance all party-season long.

We even compiled one perfectly styled look for each persona with the help of Polyvore to give your outfit planning a jumpstart.
