Holiday Style – What To Wear To A Holiday Office Party
When you’re mingling with your boss and colleagues during your company’s annual holiday office party, you’ll want to look festive, yet still professional. That means – nix the short skirts, racy tops, and revealing body-con dresses. To look feminine, stylish, and work-friendly, a wrap dress is the perfect option. This ultra-flattering silhouette looks great on most body types (including curvy figures), and is especially stunning in a bold graphic print or eye-catching pattern.
Holiday Style – What To Wear For Christmas Day
When heading to Church on Christmas Day, it’s a great time to add polished glamour and feminine charm to your holiday style. The key to keeping your outfit Church-appropriate is to choose a cut that is more on the conservative side, like a sleeveless a-line or fit-and-flare dress with a high neck line and knee-length skirt. Shimmering brocade and metallic jacquard fabrics inject a dose of shine into your holiday style, without making you look like a NYE disco ball.
Holiday Style – What To Wear To A Holiday Cocktail Party
When you’re out with friends at a holiday cocktail party, toasting to the season and hitting the dance floor, it’s time to shine in a dazzling embellished sheath dress, sexy body-con mini-dress, or shift dress. Sequined dresses add that extra sparkle to any holiday style, catching the light at every turn and stealing the spotlight in photos.
Holiday Style – What To Wear For A Family Dinner
Heading home for the holidays? Keep things classy in a feminine a-line dress or fit-and-flare dress. A family dinner during the holidays is the perfect occasion to show your folks how sophisticated and elegant you’ve become. Since you want the focus to be on you (instead of your outfit), keep your accessories simple and ladylike (pearl jewelry, chic pumps, and a tasteful clutch bag).
Holiday Style – What To Wear To A Holiday House Party
With a roaring fireplace, home-made food and tasty cocktails, and friends galore, holiday house parties are a warm and inviting mix of holiday cheer and cozy, at-home comfort. For these very reasons, this type of event suitable for a sweater dress. Pair with tights and knee-high boots for a more casual look, or glam it up with stiletto booties and a statement necklace.
No matter how you celebrate the holidays, when figuring out what to wear to each holiday party and special occasion, keep in mind the nature of the event, the location and time of day, and the types of guests who will be in attendance. Cheers to celebrating the holidays in style!
