I recently had the task of finding the perfect long black dress for my sister’s wedding and perused just about every inch of the world wide web in search of something just right. In doing so, I found so many gorgeous formal and festive dresses (naturally, I got sidetracked many times throughout my quest) and thought I would use my findings to put together a guide of my favorite looks for the holiday season.
Many of these brands/retailers (particularly Revolve) deliver so quickly, you could even get one in time for Christmas next week (if you celebrate it of course). But you may have a number of parties or a special New Year’s Eve event you’re shopping for, so I found all different types of gorgeous outfits: dresses (in varying lengths), jumpsuits, pants, midi skirts, and there’s even a sparkly little bodysuit in there that I have my eye on.
If you’re curious, the dress I chose for my sister’s wedding in the photo above is from Show Me Your Mumu here. I love bardot sleeves, I think they’re so feminine and elegant and the light material of this dress lent itself to the warm Florida weather of the event. It’s one I’ll be wearing over and over again for sure.
As you can see, I’m really feeling metallics and warm tones at the moment and I’m a big fan of midi/maxi/ankle length cuts. Timeless, versatile and flattering. I may or may not have found a little number for Christmas that checks all of these boxes- stay tuned on the gram.
Do you guys like this kind of post? It was a lot of fun putting together this “mood board” of sorts and I hope it helped guide you toward a fun and festive look this season!
