There’s nothing more holiday than the iconic red dress, am I right? I had so much fun collaborating with a few of my fellow blogger babes this season on finding the perfect red dress for the holidays. Check their posts out here:
I decided to add sporty splash this season. With athleisure and the fancy sneaker trend riding a major wave this year, it’s the perfect time to add a little funk to your holiday party getups. This year, velvet has played a major role in my styling choices, making it an easy choice for the holidays as well. I rarely buy holiday dresses or any formalwear for that matter, as it’s much easier to rent as it’s not something I’d wear more than once.
I chose to pick a piece that would be versatile across all codes of dress: the blazer dress! It makes a perfect choice for office parties and happy hours alike. Additionally, you can wear this dress open, making it easy to style for the office with leggings or jeans. I’m so pumped to use it later next year as such!
To style this dress on the sporty side, I paired it with one of my favorite ball caps. If you want a more casual look, try adding a pair of statement sneakers to the mix! I’ll be swapping out my Rockstuds for my cracked patent leather Creepers for a holiday party later this evening! If you want a little more glam, go for a statement accessory! I’ve been adding this feather collar to everything this year, from sweatshirts to dresses.
