Reindeer antlers, shimmery dresses, velvet sports coats and anything else dramatic and statement worthy are in right now. Holiday party season is your excuse to dress a little extra (definition: over-the-top or glamorous), and we have you covered. Here are a few of our favorite styles to make you look picture perfect at your next get-together anywhere in the corridor!
Everyone Loves Velvet
Velvet is winter’s most popular fabric, so embrace it! Whether you’re going to a one of Addison’s many great restaurants, or a holiday event in Addison Circle, velvet is always a holiday staple. Wear a gorgeous velvet dress, like this drape front long sleeve velvet cocktail dress from Neiman Marcus, which features a navy and purple tone with plenty of sparkles. Love this material? Wear a velvet top with jeans, like Free People velvet top from Nordstrom for a more relaxed holiday ensemble.
Out-sparkle the Vitruvian lights this holiday season when you show up wearing one of these sequin numbers! Zara inside Galleria Dallas has many glittery dresses, like this sequin wrap dress with a striking open back. Switch it up with an all-over shimmery jumpsuit, like this silver wrap one from Nordstrom that shows off your curves in a playful way.
During party season, no look is complete without accessories. In addition to your favorite earrings, necklace and bracelets, add a festive brooch to your ensemble. If you’re going to a more classic holiday event such as a show at WaterTower Theatre, we love this simple yet elegant Ben-Amun crystal baguette & pearly brooch from Neiman Marcus, which features a beautiful display of classic pearls. Also, make a statement with your shoes. Christian Louboutin’s are always a good choice, especially these Santa-red ones that feature a gorgeous studs.
Don’t Forget the Men
Guys, skip your traditional business attire and get in the holiday spirit by dressing festively as well. For a holiday dinner or date night at one of Addison’s award-winning steakhouses, we recommend a suit that is dark and elegant like this Ted Baker velvet dinner jacket or one that has a bold, unexpected pattern. This means something dressier, like velvet or with a satin lapel. Or layer a dark turtleneck under the suit or a sport coat for a unique flair. Another option is to wear a leather jacket or a solid cashmere or fine merino wool sweater. Finally, accessorize! Wear pocket squares in your suit or sport coat and a dressy scarf in fun colors like emerald, wine, aqua, espresso or sapphire.
Once you are dressed up, you can just relax, have fun and enjoy this wonderful time of year!
