It’s your party, and you’ll look hot AF if you want to. Everyone should, obviously, be the star of their own birthday party, and typically that comes with a show-stopping gem of an ensemble to help seal the deal. Finding the perfect birthday party dress is a task to be taken very seriously—but not so seriously that you don’t have fun, ya know? Whether your birthday festivities are spent at a hip restaurant, your BFFs apartment or the coolest bar in town, you want to look like the birthday queen you are. Your outfit should scream, “It’s my birthday and I look incredible!” Otherwise, it’s just another night on the town, and not a ~national holiday~ like your birthday is supposed to be.

Look, I know my gemini nature is really showing here, but if you can’t wear an incredibly cute party dress to celebrate your birthday, when can you? Birthdays are sacred, and you should be able to ooze confidence and style while celebrating yourself being born. I’m not telling you to ask your friends to dress a little bit uglier than usual so that you truly shine (Although honestly, go for it if you want. Big dick energy right there.), but I am saying you should party in a dress that makes you glad you’re alive. You deserve to look so damn good on your birthday.

Once you’ve accepted the fact that you are worthy of being the hottest one in the room on your birthday, the next step is actually picking a party dress. I’ve done most of the work for you and compiled a list of 45 different (but all totally cute) dresses sure to look good on any birthday babe. The hardest part is choosing which one to wear on your special day. Birthdays only come once a year, so we might as well make ’em damn special.
