Family celebrations call for appropriately tasteful and polished outfits that still show your loved ones your killer sense of style without looking over or underdressed - It’s surely a tricky holiday’s conundrum. Stress less - We are here to help! Here are some foolproof memos that we think are worth noting:
Party dressing doesn’t have to involve sequins. Take a classy approach by pairing a wear-forever shirt dress with a ladylike bag (make sure to stay away from those logo-heavy ones) and add some minimally sculptural jewelry for a subtle touch of style. Finish off with a pair of strappy heels – they have the requisite retro-modern feel and make enough of a statement to lift up your look after dark.
The best thing about a great midi dress that it works in basically every situation. Wear it with a pair of elegant pumps through the day – you can always wear a blazer if you need to give it a modest edge – and when you need an extra evening vibe, just put on metallic accessories.
If you prefer to nod to the cozy festive vibe rather than dolled-up looks, then look to sophisticated versions of your holiday sweater. Keep yours pared back with a pencil skirt and classic boots; some subtly high-shine hair accessories make for an understated finishing touch.
While reservations at a chic restaurant makes for a perfect excuse to dust off your little black dress, you may want to reconsider shorter hemlines when getting dressed for a family affair. Maintain femininity without showing too much skin by testing out a longer silhouette that won't sacrifice your figure. A pair of matching shoes and accent colored clutch will pull off enough sophistication for a special night with your beloveds.
