3 fab outfits for the festive season

Guest post by freelance writer Riley Henson

The holiday season is officially upon us, which means your social calendar is likely filling up with festive get-togethers 
and merry occasions. 
And while celebrating the months ahead with family and friends certainly calls for dressing in your finest, it can be tricky to know just what to wear to each special event. 

Whether you’re headed to the annual office party or are planning on ringing in the new year with loved ones, these ensembles are feminine, stylish, and - most importantly - versatile enough for all of the season’s happenings.

Metallic Midi Skirt 
Sparkle and shine are two design details that reign supreme during the holiday season. 
While it can be tempting to simply throw on a sequined cocktail dress and head to that New Year’s Eve bash, why not explore other - just as festive - options? 
Enter the metallic midi skirt.






With just enough 
flash for an evening out, this trend is equally at home during the daytime or at a work-related function thanks to its longer hemline and full silhouette.
Choose one in a gold, silver, or green hue and pair with a simple tee and flats for an 
afternoon event or an off-the-shoulder blouse and pumps for after dark.

Head-to-Toe White


The winter fashion scene is typically filled with darker neutrals and deep jewel tones, which is exactly why rocking an ensemble in shades of white can be so refreshing and unexpected.

When building an all-white look, opt for pieces that are rich in fabric and texture. Something like the off-white cable knit cardigan seen among 
the American sportswear inspired looks of this designer would be perfect. 

And don’t try to match shades - instead, pair crisp true whites with hues of cream, ecru, and oatmeal to create an ensemble with dimension and movement. 



For a more laid back get-together during the holiday season, wear your favorite white skinny jeans with a silk tank top and a long sleeveless vest (which just so happens to be trending this season).
Finish with a 
classic nude shoe or one that features a pop of colour.

Silky Slip Dress


Thanks to its lasting popularity, the '90s-inspired slip dress has become a staple that works well in all seasons—not to mention it’s universally flattering and versatile enough for nearly any occasion, too.

Chances are you already have this 
slinky style hanging in your wardrobe, but if not, the holiday season is the perfect time to add one to your collection. 




 deep red silk dress feels equal parts sexy and festive, making it ideal for any celebration. 

To add a touch of flair while keeping your look classically elegant, 
go with a midi slip style that features a ruffled hemline or lace details.
Finish with a trio of choker necklaces, a stack 
of bangles, or statement earrings.
