Fashion: Holiday Party Looks
Holiday party season has arrived which means it’s time to put a bit of glitz into your wardrobe! If you’re going to invest in one special piece to spice up your party look this season, a dress is your best option! You can easily change the look up by just adding different tights, a jacket or blazer and statement jewellery and a clutch bag.
Party Dress Trends
Popular trends for party dresses this year are the tried and true metallics, luxe brocade fabrics, polka dots, animal prints and pastel colors like baby pink and blue. Embellished details are always a hit during the holidays but sometimes less can be more - just a bit of detailing around the neckline or collar is all you need! Luxe fabrics like velvet and brocade are big this season - try a one shoulder velvetnumber or a rich purple brocade shift dress!
