What to Wear for the Holidays

By Guest Post

With the holiday season closely approaching, it's that time of year again to start thinking about party attire! You're undoubtedly going to have some festive event to attend, whether it's a holiday office party or a New Years Eve gathering, and you're going to want to look your best. 

Looking for a way to stand out from the crowd this season? No problem! With the following tips on how to choose the perfect holiday dress, you'll have all eyes on your wherever you go.

Avoid Red Dresses. 

Though red is a stunning and powerful color that can command attention, this is a classic holiday color that loses it's power when every woman decides to show up to a party in a red ensemble. If you really want to make a statement, choose a metallic color such as gold or silver, or opt for a deep royal blue. These colors are always in fashion during the winter season and will make you stand out from a sea of red!

Whoops! Guess this little, red number is a no-no.

Grab a Cocktail -- a Cocktail Dress That is!

If you're looking for a suitable dress for your upcoming office party, cocktail dresses are a safe bet. Not too formal and not too casual, cocktail dresses can be worn to almost any event and are easy to dress up or down with the right accessories. However, don't be under the impression that because this is a business affair, you have to stick with the traditional 'little black dress'. A nice, rich burgundy or deep purple color looks just as professional and will give you an extra something special!

I just love this pink bandage cocktail dress.


Look Elegant in an Evening Dress 

If you're a high school or college student with a winter formal coming up, you might want to go with an evening dress. Evening dresses are perfect for formal events and even better for winter occasions with the colder weather. If you don't want to wear seasonal colors, opt for a dress in a color like champaigne or gunmetal, which are neutral colors that look great all year round.

This halter-style evening dress is just great.

Sparkle and Dazzle!

If you have a special New Years Eve party to go to, sparkles and sequins are the way to go. New Years Eve is a fun, festive celebration, and as such, you want to look the part! Don't be afraid to go all out with a dazzling, flirty cocktail or mini dress. No matter what color or style you go with, you're sure to look like the life of the party.

How about this shiny number for New Year's Eve?

Regardless of the dress you choose, make sure you wear it with pride and confidence in yourself. Even if you have to settle with an outfit you're not crazy about, the more confidence you exude, the more stunning you'll appear to those around you!
