The social season is in full swing and your presence is in high demand at holiday events ranging from a casual gift swap with your girlfriends to a chic company soiree. Think you could rock the same LBD (little black dress) to each one? Of course! Check out how I suggest styling this classic LBD from Banana Republic Factory Store at Tanger – 5 Days 5 Ways!
Holiday Dinner with the Girls
Go feminine! Bring in a little color with a suede strappy heel or pump and a delicate necklace with ribbon accents. Of course any color will work, but I am a bit partial to gem tones over the holidays. They’re so regal and warm! If it’s a little chilly, simply add a solid black cardigan or shawl. You don’t want to steal any attention from these glamorous accessories.
Holiday Office Party
You’ll be the talk of the office in this chic ensemble. Pair your classic LBD with a winter white or cream blazer with gold accents. Store your necessities in a shimmering gold clutch. If you want to glam it up even more, add a sparkly gold chandelier earring or a wrist full of fun bangles. Hint, hint – you could rock this look on New Years Eve too (assuming you aren’t ringing in the new year with your coworkers)!
Holiday Date Night
I’m sure your boo loves to see you get all dolled up, but I’m positive he likes the simple you even better! Toss on a classic black wedge or heel (extra points for the ankle strap) before heading to your favorite holiday hot spot. In case he’s not willing to carry the lip gloss and ID, pick up a black and gold chain clutch. It’s simple, it’s elegant, it’ll take his breath away!
Casual Holiday Brunch
Heading out to finish some holiday shopping, but want to stop and grab brunch with your besties? Toss on your festive holiday scarf and brown booties. You know they’re going to want to take pictures, so style away. It’s casual enough to run around town, but trendy enough to turn heads at the table.
The Holiday Extravaganza
‘Tis the season to sparkle and shine! Dare to be different in this jaw-dropping sequined blazer. It’s a show stopper, for sure! Add a pair of large vintage, rhinestone earrings for even more pizzaz! This is my FAVORITE holiday look! It’s fun, flirty and screams “pass the champagne!” Keep the shoe simple – a basic black pump will do!
So there you have it… You have no reason to ditch the holiday shindig, just because you can’t figure out what to wear! There are endless possibilities with the LBD! If you don’t already have one, this is the year to invest! Make sure it’s figure flattering, comfortable and a classic shape. You’ll be wearing it for years to come.
Happy holidays and happy shopping!
