Holiday dresses… Who else is trapped in the holiday dress abyss of despair? You know what I mean: endless scrolling through every major website. 20 things in your cart. Yet, STILL: literally nothing you want to hit order on. I personally HATE shopping for holiday dresses. There’s SO much shit out there, and it stresses me OUT. Same for you? Read on. Your master list awaits.
Holiday Dresses For Cocktailing & Beyond
Some are kinda fancy, kinda not: we have SO many events. What to do? It’s all about the mix. Add some sparkle with some sneaks (or boots) in the mix. I plan on wearing these Miu Miu sneakers to EVERY holiday party this year. I also like mixing sweaters with a statement skirt. Opt to cut your costs by considering renting dresses too! My top picks this season to buy or rent:
Bonus: Outerwear That Doesn’t Ruin Your Look
One thing I love about New York is the ability to wear big statement coats for a full season. However, not all coats are made equal when it comes to your evening attire. These ones add a pop of color, sportiness, or texture that will compliment your dress perfectly. PRO TIP: rent your coats to save on added costs (and bulk) in your closet. I’ve rented at least 5 coats this season with my Unlimited Rent The Runway subscription.
Footwear That Doesn’t Suck
Who else is over uncomfortable shoes? Trade out some of your sky-high heels for some of these heels, sneakers, and boots for a fun detour away from the average choice.
