This time of year always presents a little challenge when it comes to maintaining your personal style, while looking chic for the holidays. I have learned that you can never go wrong with a classic look when it comes to style.
Don’t you just wish it was acceptable to wear dresses like this every day?! I mean who doesn't love a flattering and comfortable dress for the holidays? I especially love the v-neckline on this dress from Maggy London and the midi-length is complementary on anyone. It is the perfect outfit for any event and such a great dress for upcoming festivities. This dress fit so beautifully that I didn't need any tailoring done so it was well worth it for me. Really, how pretty is the detailing and retro-inspired long sleeve on this dress?
You can never go wrong with a classic dress
I am obsessed with this one and I absolutely adore occasion wear! Any excuse to dress up around the holidays and I will! As a working mom, I usually dress in office wear on a day to day basis, sometimes investing in casual pieces for days with the family. However when it comes to events, knowing the dress code is important and that helps in planning the appropriate outfit for the event. I also like investing in dresses that can be worn multiple times and wouldn't sit in my wardrobe for a one-time occasion.
A few tips for finding the perfect occasion wear
Regardless of your style, here are a few tips for finding the perfect occasion wear.
- Look for outfits with clean and classic lines.
- Do not show too much skin. Opt for long sleeves to stay warm during the holidays.
- Do make an effort. Finding the right occasion wear dress takes planning and you want to find an outfit that is stunning without being too loud. This Diana Midi dress sparkles in the light without being out there. It is just gorgeous and super soft too!
- Comfort! Invest in outfits that are comfortable because you will be wearing them for a while.
