The blazer dress is a piece that every woman should have in their wardrobe next to their LBD. During the holiday season a blazer dress is perfect the perfect thing to throw on for an office party, as it can be worn throughout the day so you won’t have to be rushing home to change. You can easily dress up a simple blazer dress with sparkly shoes and a statement necklace or earrings to add that holiday glamour.
A slip dress is a beautiful piece to wear to a holiday party, express your inner style and take inspiration from your fave celebs and influencers by choosing from different lengths and colours. This is a timeless piece that won’t have you looking back at last years pictures saying “What was I thinking!?” Pair a slip dress with strappy heels, a faux fur jacket and statement earrings for the perfect holiday party look.
80s style dress
For an unexpected holiday look go for an 80’s style dress with a bold shoulder, bright colour and short length. These dresses have been all over the runways, with 80s influences everywhere from dresses to jackets. So take a look through your moms old clothes, a vintage store or buy one of this season’s modern takes on this look.
Mid-length silk skirts have been everywhere this season, and even have us mini skirt lovers giving them a try. Animal print (another key trend this season), works perfectly in the form of a silk midi skirt. For a more casual holiday look pair a silk skirt with a chunky knit or t-shirt, to dress one of these trendy skirts up add a pair of heels and statement earrings.
A suit is an unexpected holiday party look, but is polished and can also be sexy. For a cool-girl look go for an oversized fit or seasonally trendy colour. If you don’t want to go as far outside of the box, go for a sexy classic black suit.
For a take on the LBD opt for this seasons go to dress, in black leather. If you aren’t into a full leather look go for leather pants or a leather mini skirt. Leather is classic yet edgy, wear this to a party or your Christmas dinner with family or friends.
For a classic holiday look go for the glam with silver glitter. This season is all about the silver shine so when choosing a colour for this season go silver. A blazer will add a more tame amount of glitz to your look or go all out and ornate with a silver mini dress.
