Holiday Dress Code
Little Black Dress
The golden standard, this season’s LBD comes in a variety of styles and embellished levels. On the subtle side, Milly Blair Ostrich Feather dress offers a touch of pizzazz without crossing into the flashy territory. DVF’s lace wrap is a lot more daring yet equally elegant.
Pop of Red
An undeniably powerful hue, red holds no punches when it comes to holiday attire. Sandro’s Rozen dress is a lacy interpretation that oozes ingénue’s charm, while Boss’ classic pairing of red top with sharp slacks elevates elegant minimalism to new heights.
Not for the bashful, pattern textiles are a sure way to stand out in a crowd. The holiday varieties are often crowned with pearl finish, shinny sequence or see through embellishments. Michael Kors’ Hexagon-Print Collared Matelassé shift dress is layered with transparent appliqué. Philipp Plein’s Curiosity features bold tribal print that needs no enhancements and M Missoni printed fringe dress is a no-brainer for anyone planning on dancing this holiday season.
Looking for a classic option with a twist? Both kate spade new york and Red Valentino feature bubble dresses with unique details. Kate Spade’s Colorblock Fit & Flare version dazzles with interesting pattern while Red Valentino’s cheeky number will get you in the holiday mood with a wink.
A jumpsuit is a great alternative to a dress and it radiates sophistication. J. Crew’s gold-flecked wrap romper shimmers thanks to its metallic fabrication. Stella McCartney’s Illusion jumpsuit is a sleek and bold statement, while BCBG’s Marlin Cutout number is an ideal canvas for all of your festive layers and accessories.
