Ahhh only 5 days ’til Christmas and I couldn’t be anymore excited!!! I just love this time of year and spending it with family and friends! Another thing I love about the holiday season, is all the excuses to wear your prettiest outfits! With holiday parties in full swing, today I’m sharing this more formal look with you guys. I actually wore this dress to a Fall/Winter wedding I had a few weeks back and I couldn’t wait to find another event to wear it to. When looking for a gown, especially online, there are a few key tips I try to follow…
- Stick to a silhouette you know is flattering on you– Personally I love the way an off the shoulder silhouette looks on me, so I definitely try to gravitate towards something of that type. I also like clothing that defines my waist as it gives me shape.
- Make sure to check what type of fabric the dress is made of– the material of a dress can totally make or break the way it looks and fits.
- If you’re hesitant about shopping online, stick to brands you know– Dress shopping online can be scary sometimes, cause you have no idea what’ll come in the mail and if will fit. Sticking to brands you know and shopped from in the past helps determine the size you should order and gives you a good guess of the quality.
For my formal holiday look I’m wearing this off the shoulder fishtail gown from Norma Kamali. I wanted to keep my neck bare, so that I could style my dress with these gorgeous statement earrings from BaubleBar. Loving the tassel trend! A gold ring and some velvet heels were the finishing touches.
