Hi, Everyone! I'm shifting seasons here on Dress for the Wedding, and shifting topics ever so slightly, as well! While many are still planning weddings and looking ahead to late 2014 and 2015 wedding plans, it's also a time of year when many of us are invited to holiday parties and events. In my quest to help you find dresses to wear to all sort of festive occasions, I'm going to be starting a series of looks for what to wear to the events that happen this time of year. You'll see ideas for what to wear to holiday dinners where you might be meeting your significant other's family for the first time; what to wear to your office holiday parties; and what to wear for meeting up with your friends for various festivities! Stay tuned for full outfit styled posts, but here are a few ideas to get things started!
What to Wear to Holiday Dinners
Holiday dinners are a time to relax and enjoy a great meal and time with your family. Depending on how formal these events are, you might head to the table in just a cozy sweater and jeans, or you may want to step it up a little and wear a skirt or dress. I know if you're meeting family for the first time, it's always nice to feel a little dressed up; I love sweater dresses for an easy combination of comfort and style! You can pair a sweater dress with flats and tights or tall boots and have a look that is comfortable but ready to be forever captured for posterity in family pictures. A skirt and a top, or even pants and fun top, is always an option too. A look like this takes you from Thanksgiving dinner to church services, or other events, plus you can wear it to work later!
What to Wear to Your Work Holiday Party
Ok, so Dress for the Wedding only employs me, so my holiday work party won't be quite the same as it was when I worked for a company of 400 people or more. Still, I have my eye on lots of dresses for those of you who do have work parties! Attire for work events can vary widely from fun tacky Christmas sweaters, cocktail attire, all the way to formal ball gowns for black tie galas, and all are fun to dress for! For this pick, I'm picturing my former company's holiday party where a semi-formal to dressy casual style was usually the best choice. It was a fun time to wear something than the usual corporate attire, and wearing a festive, but professionally elegant dress was always a fun departure from the usual work-day wear.
What to Wear for Holiday Cocktails out With Friends
This season is also a great time to reconnect with friends and meet for a drink or a meal at a favorite restaurant. It's fun to get into the spirit of the season, and break out of the jeans/heels/dressy top combination that is so often my fall back. You can still wear a jeans but add a sequin top, or a spirited color, or wear a fun little cocktail dress with a little more sparkle with tights and boots or heels. Here are a few picks for that look!
What to Wear to a Holiday Gala Event
Perhaps you or your significant other takes part in civic or military events where an end-of- year holiday gala is on the calendar. Lucky you! It's a great time to put on a ball gown and have some fun! There are so many stunning formal length-gowns, so take advantage some dramatic, sweeping styles in the colors of the season.
What to Wear if You're Hosting a Holiday Party
Perhaps you're the one hosting a party, and you want something special to wear to stand out and set the tone for fun! Here are a few of my picks to make you the hostess with the mostess!
Holiday Dinner Date
