Holiday events are starting this weekend , if they haven't started already. Darlings the Holiday Season is right around the corner. Since Friday will be the first day of December it really is time to put the final touches on your holiday wardrobe. While I have yet to decorate for the holidays I will need to get busy this weekend. Furthermore as this is most likely the busiest time of year you'll need to be organized. First and foremost it's probably smart to put all parties and events into your calendar. Next think about the holiday wardrobe....
Since it’s the time of year for countless holiday events from work parties to family gatherings and Christmas cocktails with the girls. Yanking out stacks of sweaters, holiday dresses and the shoes that you wore to last year’s party? It can be challenging to figure out what to wear for Christmas events. Looking for some inspiration?
I’ve put together a holiday style guide addressing looks for 3 types of holiday events work parties, casual get togethers, and cocktail hour during the Christmas season. Here are some tips in picking your holiday dresses, shoes and more!
Holiday Events ; How to dress for an office holiday party
The trick here is balancing professionalism and your personal holiday style. You don’t want to show up as “that girl” wearing a red vinyl mini while everyone else is in knee-length black – but you also don’t want to be the girl in a full pants suit when everyone else is sporting fun holiday wear. Depending on the size and location of your work place, you may be able to get away with more or less creative freedom. But a good rule of thumb that applies to all professional after-work parties:
For holiday events, you can push the limits, just don’t push too far.
Do wear that super cute holiday dress you’ve been waiting for an excuse to wear, but throw over a blazer and match it with closed-toe pumps or booties to balance your bare skin. Once you arrive to the party, you can decide if it’s appropriate to ditch the blazer or not. While you may choose a nice long sleeve number they are not all that conservative. If it’s cold, do wear tights. Even if it’s nice, don’t wear a hemline shorter than your fingertips when your arms are relaxed at your side. Therefore my advice is use good judgement , it's work after all.
Holiday Events ; What to wear to a casual Christmas party
Are one of your friends-of-friends throwing an afternoon Christmas party over lunch? By the same token is a family member or friend having a casual supper ? In the same way what about that girlfriend's gift exchange brunch ? Hopefully they’ve communicated the dress code. If not, afternoon parties are typically a bit more laid back. But how do you dress casual and festive at the same time? Go for understandable silhouettes, in more festive materials like metallics, sequins, or lace. Therefore dress in layers if you’re unsure and want to be able to add or remove layers as necessary.
If the party is casual, feel free to take some liberties in comfort. In fact the first look calls for comfortable shoes. Therefore I’ve styled it with flat riding boots that show their sophistication in the butter-soft leather .These holiday boots are a great grab in rich brown or black, and will be the only high-calf boot you need for the rest of the season. They’re also fabulous over jeans or fitted leather leggings.
Holiday Events : Christmas cocktail party
Finally for the most fun of them all, pull out all the stops for your Christmas or New Years cocktail party. Ultimately you know that dress that you’re not quite sure if you can pull off but it’s so wow. Yeah. Wear it. Since Christmas cocktail parties are quite forgiving in the wild, crazy and downright festive . However to avoid making a scene walking in from the sub-zero weather in a mini, consider layers that you can shed should the night allow.
In my opinion darlings the holiday season is the best time for dressing up. Therefore "don you all your gay apparel ", dress to the nines. Since for most of us there are not a lot of occasions to go all out take advantage of them. As a matter of fact pull out all the stops. Actually go and have a blast.
Givenchy's AW17 collection is comprised of essential pieces that represent the label's adored aesthetic.Hence solely presented in red; a colour considered the embodiment of the Givenchy spirit. In my opinion this fringed dress exudes the label's signature gothic romantic essence.
