One of the best parts about going to holiday parties is deciding what to wear -especially if it means treating yourself to a new dress! It’s the perfect excuse to splurge on a fantastic party dress that will wow your friends, family, and co-workers. While it’s fun to dress up, sometimes finding the perfect dress can be overwhelming. There are a ton to choose from, and you want to pick what’s best for your silhouette and colouring. You also have to take into consideration the theme, venue, and occasion for the holiday party so you aren’t over or under dressed. Here are some helpful tips to make sure you pull off the right look this holiday season.
Christmas Party Dress: This time of year is one of the only times when dresses in holiday colours aren’t cheesy. Go for Christmas party dresses that play off the traditional Christmas colours: gold, green, silver and red. Take into consideration the weather and make sure you have something to cover any bare areas in case you’re spending some time outdoors in the cold – like a shawl or jacket. It’s likely that you’ll be mingling and moving around a lot, so choose a dress that is comfortable and that you can wear again.
New Year’s Eve Dresses: It’s the night when you celebrate days past and look forward to the future, so pick a New Year party dress that is celebratory and fun. Don’t be afraid of sparkles, sequins or adorning yourself with jewels and funky jewelry. Even if you don’t wear heels on a regular basis, use this night as a reason to go against the norm. It’s the perfect time to be glamorous and super flirty, so don’t shy away from New Year party dresses that accentuate your figure, or is in a colour you wouldn’t normally wear! Don’t be afraid to be the belle of the ball. Elegant and dramatic are the words to describe the ideal New Years Eve Dress. If you are going to a causal event, it’s ok to mix in a sequined top with a causal bottom and still make an impact with your outfit.
Office Holiday Party Dresses: Depending on the type of company you work for, pick an office party dress that doesn’t go against the general dress code policies. Keep it simple and understated as well as comfortable, so you can walk around and talk to people. Conservative colours and keeping skin exposure to a minimum are also good guidelines to follow. You want coworkers to focus on you and what you have to say, not how little you’re wearing or how loud what you’re wearing is. Wrap or A-line dresses work well in these occasions, or a blazer with a sequined top with dress pants.
