You’re at home, entertaining your friends—you can dress however you want. Elegant! Exotic! Simple and relaxed! Set your own tone for the evening.

Greet your guests at the door in an Anand Kabra Indian sari and beads. Or feel like a mermaid in a shiny turquoise pants outfit by Lefranc Ferrant.

If you are more comfortable in a short or knee-length party dress, Elie Saab has a beautiful cream lace dress and a fringed one-shoulder minidress, and fellow Lebanese designer Rony Richa has created a layered strapless version that will give your party extra elegance.

If you want to wear a long dress, you can—you’re at home, no worries about dragging the hem in the mud. Rich gold and lavender are used in a design by Rony Richa, while an enticing texture is the focus of French designer Franck Sorbier in his tapestry offering.

Relax in the splendor of your chosen outfit, selected friends, and special holiday fare!
