If there aren’t already enough reasons to love this time of the year, holiday parties are something I always look forward to. You can sign me up for anything that gives me a reason to dress up and go all out with the sequins and the festive jewelry.
However it can be stressful to come up with appropriate outfits for every occasion, without falling into the “outfit repeater” category. (After all, all we want is a good variety of Instagrammable pictures, am I right ladies?).
Here are a few ideas for your holiday looks. Let me know which one is your favorite down below!
One thing I like to do is keeping my dress elegant and simple so I can go all out with the accessories. I love to make it interesting with a pair of statement earrings and a fabulous clutch. And how gorgeous is this one from Simitri Designs? A real conversation piece! I got the Gray Dreamy Clutch because it goes with both gold and silver and it even has a chain to wear on the shoulder. Also obsessing over this one combining silver, yellow and rose gold.
Bold & Bright
On the other hand when I know I’m wearing a dress that has intricate details I keep it simple with my accessories. This beauty has a mesh panel in the front and a cris-cross back. Also I’m obsessed with the color: a shade of burgundy that is perfect not only for Christmas but also for fall and spring.
From emerald green to sapphire blue and ruby red, this is the perfect season to wear all the luxurious hues. Textures and lengths are also total game changers. Satin and velvet have to be my absolute favorites (with a slight preference to velvet because of its more durable nature and the fact that I cannot help myself from spilling everything I hold). Also, don’t keep it mini: midi dresses and longer ones will make you feel like a million bucks! (little bonus tip, if you find a gorgeous long dress but aren’t completely sold on it just bring it to your tailor and add a slit. You’ll have a unique dress that will get you noticed everywhere you go!).
