The Holiday Event Dress Up Guide

November 15th—2020

While we know your holidays may feel different this year, we always need an excuse to get dressed up. We often talk of retail therapy, but putting on a gorgeous frock can have the same mood-heightening effect. So whether you are spending the holidays in your home or in someone else home, here are the dresses we know will make your holiday events all the more special.

 

Girly Little Things

Our inner girl will always and forever love to play dress-up. From our younger days of going into our mother’s closets and adorning ourselves with her jewels, to our teenage years of experimentation with style, our desire for all things feminine has never waned. If there ever was a designer brand created to enhance this desire, self-portrait is definitely it. Even if you are just having your loved ones over for dinner, we love the idea of sequins and flowers and self-portrait’s Mesh Sequin Midi Dress (featured above in our Gallery) is simply beyond…demure enough for a family celebration, but also dramatic enough to satisfy your love of fashion. Of course, you can never have enough sparkle so finish off this fabulous #OOTN with Sergio Rossi’s exquisite, metallic sr1 Pumps.

 

Animal Instinct

We will forever love all things animal print and Spanish designer Pertegaz gives us one of the more exciting interpretations of the holiday season. His dramatic, feather-trimmed take on zebra print deserves an ovation and even if you are celebrating at home, deserves to be worn. Surprise your friends and family by creating a look that would normally take you out on the town. Since this gorgeous dress makes a statement on its own, we recommend styling it with a simple, yet elegant pair of Sergio Rossi Godiva Mules…you will be the talk of all of your holiday gatherings in this sensational combo.

 

Cosmic Creations

While we will always covet traditional holiday styles, 2020 requires a bit of whimsy and no one does this better than Rixo London. Their Melanie Midi Dress (featured above), interprets powerful celestial symbols in a fun and fresh way and then combines them with a feminine, metallic, floral bodice for a look that will be sure to delight. We love this dress with cowboy booties from Sartore for added edge and comfort. If you are the hostess, you will need a little less heel, but still require maximum style and what better way to showcase your fashion personality than with this expressive little number.
