Holiday Dresses: Formal Party Outfits
Not knowing what to wear to a formal holiday event can be stressful. You wouldn’t want to go overboard and end up looking like going to a prom but you also wouldn’t want to be underdressed at the holiday party.
So what should you wear? Here are a few of what we’d don if it were up to us.
A-Line/Princess V-neck Halter Floor-length Sequined Evening Dress
Why not? The holiday season definitely calls for something shiny and glittery! Needless to say, all eyes would be on you if you wear something sparkly so if you’re not the type who can handle all that attention, you should tone the sparkles down a bit.
Don’t forget to keep your makeup, accessories and hair simple – to avoid overdoing the whole holiday glam look.

Wear your shade and go for an elegant and classy look! Holiday dresses in nude colors can be anything from champagne to slightly darker tones – depending on your skin tone. Nude shades are undoubtedly easy on the eyes so if you’re having second thoughts on what to wear, dresses of this color could be it.
Since nude is generally plain, dress up by wearing elaborate accessories or put a little more effort on the makeup department to keep up.
It’s Christmas anyway! And now you have another excuse to wear that red lipstick!

Red dresses can be a challenge to pull off though so choose your shade of red wisely. Sticking to flattering cuts and styles for your body type will also do your holiday look good.
If something sparkly is too much, going nude is too plain and wearing red is too bold for you – wear something in the middle. Wear neutral-colored holiday dresses with accents for a simple yet “still there” look.
Whites, browns, grays and blacks are pretty safe color choices. And what’s even better is that you’ll most likely have the right accessories and footwear to match with them!
