With holiday office parties, festive soirées with friends, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and everything in between, there are loads of events happening in the coming week. With so much hoopla, and barely any time to breathe in between five-course meals, it's important to plan out our ensembles ahead of time to ensure that we are appropriately dressed for all occasions.

Although this time of year is a great occasion to experiment with new trends and try out dark burgundy lipstick, there are certain dresses that should remain safely stowed in your closet. Anything that is too tight, too sheer or too revealing has no place at church or around the Christmas tree. And no one want to see your underwear-as-outerwear, Madonna-inspired outfit at the office work party.

Click through the slideshow below for some dresses that should not be worn during the holiday season (though they might have a place on New Years Eve or Valentine's Day).
