My condolences to all the introverts out there: this is not an easy time of year to prefer the company of your couch and Olivia Benson (via the latest “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” marathon) over champagne, canapés, and casual acquaintances. Holiday party invites are piling up—or at least filling our inboxes—and nights of basically-mandatory merriment are fast approaching.

So, what’s a girl to do? Well, I can’t give you a free pass to say “no” to everything (you better have a pretty good excuse if you’re going to turn down an invite from your boss), but I can help ease the pain a little bit with the promise of pretty dresses and slick jumpsuits. And don’t worry, you can always Irish exit after a quick toast, a few “hellos,” and a turn in the photobooth. (Hey, might as well get an Instagram out of it!)
