The holiday season is officially upon us, but that doesn’t mean you have to rely on your LBD (little black dress) for all of your party needs. Yes, it will ALWAYS be in style, but the best part of party season is stepping outside of your style comfort zone and trying something new (and hopefully sparkly).
If you’re interested in adding a little more glitz to your nights out on the town with your friends this season, then you MUST invest in some fun party dresses. There are so many great dresses out there to choose from, so here are 3 tips to help you choose the perfect holiday dress when you want to add a little extra “sparkle” to your party outfits.
Color is your friend
Jewel tones and bright red are always great choices for holiday party dresses. They pop great against the skin, and you will automatically be in a festive mood as soon as you slip it on.
Try tonal chicness
Another great alternative to a LBD is to try a flirty little frock in a soft neutral like bronze. It will instantly make you look tan, AND it’s a dress that you’ll be able to pull out at other times of the year. Just try to stick to finishes like satin/silk to keep your look polished and dressed up.
Sparkle sparkle everywhere
When all else fails, go for a dress that’s embellished with sparkly sequins or rhinestones. The silhouette of the dress doesn’t matter (you should just feel bomb in it), and you can pair it with your favorite nude strappy heels (this makes legs look long and lean) or add a little southern flare with your favorite white booties.
Add some playful jewelry for a little extra dazzle and you’re good to go!
