What to Wear to a Holiday Party

 

Oh the holidays – what a joyous time filled with laughter and cheer! Coworkers, friends and families alike, all gather and celebrate the year gone by with hopes and dreams for the one to come. It also seems to be the time where everyone decides to celebrate in the same week, leaving you to recover from the foggy whirlwind of champagne and chocolate that ensues.

Trying to find the perfect dress for each occasion can be difficult. Fun yet professional. Classy but festive. Sexy and still appropriate. It becomes a tedious task not to have any repeats, yet it is necessary because most holiday dresses are memorable ones that shouldn’t be re-worn in the same month, let alone year, if at all possible. Creating an “outfit” is my go-to since it’s far less likely to show up wearing the same thing as anyone else and it adds some ability for variety. I also like to think ahead in the year and try and grab a great dress or skirt that feels festive so that come Christmas time I don’t have to scramble to find a great dress that isn’t absurdly expensive.

So Cheers to finding the perfect dress or outfit for your 2016 Christmas Party Circuit.

Wishing you all a very Happy Holiday!
