FashionMust-Have Holiday Dresses

The holidays are right around the corner and we have tons of new holiday dresses (and some dress-alternates) to get you through the season! We’ve shown you office-party outfits and formal dressing – now we are going to cover the basics for all holiday parties. Whether you’re a fan of LBDs, sequins, or jumpsuits, we have something for you!

Once the holiday season hits, our wardrobe switches to velvet. Both luxurious and romantic, this fabric is easily a favorite. Try our Dream Of Sheen Velvet Maxi Dress in both navy blue and forest green for an evening of bliss. Featuring a convertible top and leg slit, this dress allows you to style as you please!

If you’re looking to ‘up’ the sexy, reach for an LBD or mesh top for an alluring ensemble. To make your go-to LBD outfit a seasonal classic, pair with chic embellished shoes and matching accessories. Or if you want to change things up this year and make the ultimate statement, opt for one of our highly coveted mesh tops. We love pairing mesh tops with a black bralette and dark denim to keep the outfit suited for any holiday soiree.

Another great alternate to a typically holiday dress is to opt for a jumpsuit! Stylish and sophisticated, you will be comfortable for a night full of dancing. Jumpsuits look perfect with either your go-to heeled booties, or chic new stilettos thanks to their versatile wide-leg shape. Check out our ultra flattering, best selling Thinking Out Loud Jumpsuit in royal bluewhiteblack and red.

Sequins are another holiday classic–we love any excuse to wear them, especially with so many trendy options! A sequin skirt or trendy sequin pants are great statement pieces to pair with a basic white tee or sweater. If you’re feeling ‘extra,’ complete the look with a faux fur jacket and chunky jewelry!

FashionFormal Dressing for The Holidays

When it comes to formal dress codes, knowing what’s okay and not okay to wear isn’t always obvious. What dress length is appropriate for a formal invitation? Do I need to wear black? We all face these fashion dilemmas, and even more when getting dressed for any type of formal event during the holidays. Today we’re breaking down the details you need to know when getting dressed for any festive formal holiday event.

If your invitation says “formal” or “black tie” this means a floor length gown is fitting and a darker color palette is favored, but white is also a great choice. For a glamorous and dramatic entrance, make sure to check out the Girl in the Mirror Black Beaded Maxi Dress. Nothing says formal holiday attire like a chic white maxi dress. If you’re going to a holiday charity gala or black tie affair for work check out True Love White Beaded Rhinestone Maxi Dress.

Evening gown styling should flatter our best features. Black and white are both such chic colors that they can totally enhance the babe wearing them no matter what. First decide what you’d like to emphasize and find a dress that shows it off. If you have beautiful shoulders, you may want to wear a strapless or off-the-shoulder gown like our Grand Entrance Black Pearl Maxi Dress. If your long legs are your best feature, show off some leg with a slit up the side in our Heavenly Hues Black Maxi Dress. Keep the look elegant to fit in with the theme of the party.

FashionCozy Date Looks, Just in Time for #CuffingSeason

Looking cold-weather cute can be challenging. As temperatures plummet, your main goal becomes keeping toasty rather than sexy — but what if you could do both? Spoiler alert: You can. Rather than sacrifice your style for comfort, or vice versa, get creative with layering and accessorizing: Textured knits, over the knee boots, plaid, denim, shearling, and faux fur all make for the building blocks of the perfect date look. Just scroll on for four ways to mix and match your cozy and flirty pieces into combos that are date-night flawless.

1. Balance out a slouchy knit with sleek faux leather and and a hit of animal print. Rawr.

date looks - knit and leather

2. Mixing feminine floral with snuggly shearling? Yes, please.

3. Pair plaid and denim with black extras for a look that’s a little bit mod, a little bit rugged, and a whole lot of YES.
