The time has arrived, my friends. Holiday party invitations are coming in and dress shopping has begun! Some people go for the traditional red and/or green ensemble, and I too have rocked some bold colors in years past. But you guys know I love my neutrals, so black is my holiday dress color of choice. Black is classic. Black is elegant. It’s flattering on pretty much everyone, and you can easily add a festive pop of color with your accessories if you so choose. I fell in love with this black midi dress and all of its intricate details. The cutwork is gorgeous, and just in case you’re curious, it has a nude lining so that you won’t feel TOO exposed. The subtle ruffle details add a little extra feminine flair. If you think LBDs are plain and boring, this dress will most definitely change your mind! I also love this black midi dress that is equally stunning and festive.
I opted for nude accessories to complement the cutwork details. These nude block heel pumps are my fave (because block heels), but unfortunately they are no longer available. I found these block heel pumps that would work as well, but they don’t have the ankle strap. These velvet pumps from J.Crew would also be a good option. I am obsessed with the bow detail!
I am so excited for all the holiday celebrations coming up in the next few weeks. Getting all dressed up is my favorite part of going to holiday parties. It’s just so much fun to pick out the perfect dress and actually have somewhere to go in it (which really doesn’t happen that often)! What kind of festivities are you guys planning this month? I would love to hear about your holiday traditions!
