Hello Holidays! Santa is back at the malls, Christmas music is on the radio, and light up night is occurring across many cities and communities. We are full on holiday mode! Do you have any holiday parties to attend this year? Maybe for work? A family holiday party? Or a fun holiday get-together with your best friends? No matter the venue, White House Black Market is a great place for all your holiday party gear!
I stopped by my local WHBM and wanted to share just a small sampling of some fun party options. Let’s start with this tie neck maxi dress in a show-stopping red. It has a back zip closure, lovely tie at the neckline with keyhole detail. So pretty! This kinda reminds me of the red dress Nicole Kidman wore with the infamous shoulder bow. Only this one from WHBM is more understated, of course. But same kinda feel. Very movie star-ish.
A fit and flare dress is typically universally flattering, no matter your shape. This dress offers a halter neckline, which I thought was an interesting design choice. You’ll definitely need to wear an appropriate bra or have cups sewn into the dress. The color is a deep saturated red, almost burgundy or wine. The pleating detail in the skirt gives it such a feminine touch. And, I love that it has pockets! I added a crystal necklace to give it a bit of sparkle. I felt the sizing was a bit off with this dress. The arm holes seemed slightly wide. I sized down to a 00, which gave a better fit in the chest area.
I just have one word to describe this ensemble – Glamorous! You will be ballroom ready in this gorgeous full skirt. Wow! Love that it has pockets. The wide band that sits at the natural waist is an extra-flattering addition. I paired it with a super soft velvet tank, which is elegant enough to wear to your holiday parties, yet a perfect winter work wear staple.
And can we talk about this bolero. It’s the perfect addition to keeping warm. Supersoft material keeps you comfortable, while a chic silhouette adds sophistication to your holiday look.
Outfit Details: Velvet Shell (wearing size XS) // Shadow Stripe Full Skirt (wearing size 0) // Faux Fur Bolero (wearing a Medium as no XS was available. Go with your normal size) // Glass Crystal Heart Station Necklace // Suede Pumps (wearing 8 1/2)
Perhaps your plans are a bit more casual and don’t require the holiday glam and glitz. You can still feel holiday party ready in this comfy ensemble featuring a cozy knit tank with coordinating cardigan and velvet leggings. The addition of the velvet leggings really elevates the outfit. Team with pumps and a bit of sparkle in your accessories and you’re ready for the festivities!
Meeting friends out for a holiday drink? A sparkly cami under a velvet blazer with skinnies and suede heels is all you need! Love this look. I’m crushing on this velvet jacket. It’s versatile enough to take you all the way from morning to evening. Team it with a dress to add some texture to your workwear wardrobe or pair with your favorite jeans and heels for a chic night-time look. The cami has adjustable shoulder straps, but was a bit roomy. I could’ve sized down. Keep in mind, it’s shorter in length – meant to be worn with high-waist bottoms.
Thanks for stopping by! XO ~ Michelle
