Semi-Formal Holiday Styles Fit for Every Fashionista
by Cassandra Morris
The holiday season is officially here, and so are the invites to holiday parties and dances. Don’t be caught without something fabulous to wear! Indulge in a gorgeous cranberry taffeta frock, have the perfect little black dress at the ready, and make your grand entrance with just the right amount of sparkle in these holiday ensembles.
The most festive frock
A cranberry-colored frock is always appropriate for the holidays, and this one is absolutely stunning. I love the sparkle that lines the bust, but the real draw to this dress is the oversized bow at the waist. It adds texture, detail, and the gentle reminder that you should be the receiver of at least one awesome gift this year!
The ultimate LBD
This fierce number is a trendy twist on the tried-and-true little black dress. The lace overlay and subtle sequins are festive enough for any holiday occasion, and are totally in this year. This dress pairs perfectly with opaque black tights and a cropped cardigan if the temps are too cold for bare skin.
A touch of glitz
Let it snow! This winter white sweetheart dress is flecked with glittering gold, and will make you look like the ultimate snow angel. A subtle pair of gold hoops, a few thin bracelets and nude heels will tie this look together for any formal event.
An evening gem
The sun sets super early this time of year, but that hardly upsets your party schedule. It just means you can start wearing your sequin-packed dresses a little earlier in the evening than usual. This navy number is full of dainty ruffles and extra sparkle that will make you stand out at any holiday dance or New Year’s celebration.
Accessories that glitter
If your holiday budget is a little tight because of all those gifts you’re buying, save a buck by updating your favorite dress with a sweet accessory or two. All-over sparkle heels or a bling-encrusted clutch can add instant holiday cheer to any outfit!

Tis’ The Season For Head Turning Fashion!
by Nicole Brewer
‘Tis the season to celebrate the holidays with head-turning fashion! New Year’s Eve will be here before we know it, and with it, 365 more days to look and feel your absolute best. If you’re in the market for a new dress in one of the hot jewel tones or metallic finishes, go ahead and indulge your fashion needs. But sometimes, all you really need to do is pick up a few new accessories to make a New Year’s party feel like a gala. From gold jewelry and embellished sashes & headpieces to sparkly clutches and metallic heels, there’s simply no shortage of sizzling accessories to create traffic-stopping looks and unforgettable photos you’ll love!
Nothing transforms ‘Simple’ into ‘Simply Fabulous’ quite like embellished accessories. Try adding an elegant waist-cinching sash to a basic dress or donning a dramatic rhinestone headpiece for a little bit of holiday magic.
This season, jewel tones like ruby red and sapphire blue stand out in a crowd with gold and silver acessories. Pair your best hue with sequined wedges or platform heels and a glitter clutch. Or try out multi color sequins for another way to shine.
Gold has made a huge comeback this year and can be perfect for ringing in the new one. Enhance the look of any color with true gold and nude shimmer, which gives a perfect glimpse of the rich metal.
Silver is here to stay and is stunning opposite black, sheers, gunmetal, pewter and deep jewel tones alike.
Dramatic capes, boleros and wraps add whimsy to any festivity. Party in a winter wonderland, or just pretend to in one of these stunning add-ons that make your entrance & exit fashionably grand.
Whether you chose to go bold with color or classic with winter white or molten metallics, use accessories as a way to punctuate your message of fun, fearless, fashion all year long!
Happy New Year!
Dress with Style Head to Toe for Upcoming Holiday Festivities
by Katrina Mitzeliotis
We’re in the midst of the holiday season, which means our social calendars are jam packed with get-togethers, dinners and parties. While in reality it would be great to have a couple of hours to get ready, more often than not we find ourselves rushing right out of our office door to a dinner party — but just because you’re coming from your desk doesn’t mean you can’t look chic!
Regardless of the dress code at your office, there’s three universal tips that can instantly transform your look: a red lip, statement jewelry and a dressy pair of pumps. In less than five minutes, you can easily go from day to night. If you have a couple of minutes to spare, you can also pull your hair in a top knot and put on a little more eye makeup for a dramatic, nighttime look. Depending on your outfit, a statement cuff, necklace or earrings are the way to go.
If you, (like me), often carry a roomy purse to work it might be best to leave your bulky bag behind and carry a chic clutch instead. The box clutch is so in style, and it adds a dressy look to any get-up.
It’s remarkable how quickly you can transform your look with just a few key accessories and makeup — but that’s not all! Going from desk to dinner during the holiday season also calls for the perfect dress. For the office holiday party, I would stay away from a plunging neckline or a super form-fitting frock. However, just because you want to look appropriate in front of the boss doesn’t mean you can’t let your personal sense of style shine through in something trendy. You can easily throw a blazer over a sleeveless dress for the office. Keep your clutch and jewelry in your bag and simply take off the blazer, slip on your statement jewelry and you’re ready to go! I think this dress is the perfect option for a soiree with your co-workers. It’s trendy and dressy while still looking totally appropriate.
It’s great to invest in a classic dress. Not only can you re-wear it throughout the holiday season, but once the spring rolls around it will still come in handy for cocktail parties and weddings. Again, throwing a jacket over the dress and wearing a modest heel is enough to dress it down when you’re at work — but it’s also so easy to transform for party-time.
When it comes to socializing during the holiday season, you honestly can’t go wrong with a little black dress — especially because you can easily dress it up or down.
The holiday season is a busy time, but there’s no need to stress when it’s time to get dressed! Let your individual sense of style shine through in an appropriate yet chic get-up and you’re sure to impress your colleagues with your fantastic flair for fashion.
