Chances are you have about a million holiday parties to attend this week. It’s easy to fall back on the traditional LBD, but there are options that are just as effortless and feel much more festive that will earn you major style cred. Check out Fashion Fabrics Club’s roundup of festive looks you can copy for all your holiday party hopping.
The beauty of velvet is that it’s not only super festive in its looks, but also incredibly comfortable in its feel. Super soft with just the right amount of stretch, it feels more like a nightgown than a cocktail dress and when it’s turned out in holiday jewel tones like emerald green or ruby red, it’s the perfect holiday party pick.
Here’s a holiday-ready dress that can go seamlessly from a family get together to after-dinner cocktails with friends. The Christmas-y color scheme in the red-and-green plaid offers a festive feel in a sophisticated way that can easily be dressed up (with heels and a statement necklace) or down (paired with boots and a leather moto jacket).
Lace makes everything feel more polished and dressed up, while at the same time having a look-at-me impact that warrants a double take. If you really want to get noticed, opt for a festive shade in a bright hue like this brilliant red lace number.
If there’s a chance of running into an ex, this satin tuxedo dress is what you need to wear. The va-va-voom neckline is ultra-flattering for nearly any body type while the tailored construction slims and flatters in all the right places. Insider tip: If you don’t feel comfortable showing so much skin, you can easy add a slip dress underneath.
If you’re looking to add a versatile piece to your party-ready wardrobe, a white tulle skirt is just the thing. You can wear it multiple times in one weekend and have completely different looks depending on what you pair it with. Some ideas: velvet wrap top, silk blouse, flannel button up, lace crop top…the options are limitless.
