The holidays are my favorite time of the year for dressing up for events. Many Christmas parties are fancy, but not too formal. Picking out a Christmas dress for those occasions are a little tougher when you have to strike the balance between dressy but not too elaborate. The Duffield Lane dress below fits the bill for just this scenario!
Duffield Lane is a company based out of Michigan that sells classy attire for women. This Jenna dress is what I consider a versatile piece since I can make it as dressy or casual as I need to, but mainly I need it for those in-between times such as a Christmas brunch, winter bridal shower, or a Sunday morning at church. I reach for this dress often for its simple, yet elegant style.
The dress is true to size, fits like a glove, and the bottom has a subtle flair. There’s no odd bunching or tightness in this dress, it was designed very intentionally with great detail.
This clutch from Mark & Graham goes perfectly with this dress and for the holiday season. My favorite part is the monogram on the clasp of the clutch. Little details like that make it an item I know I’ll own forever.
Below are my top picks for Christmas dresses from my favorite brands. The dresses below aren’t something you’ll find readily available at a mall, which means the chances of matching someone are low (that’s always a good thing). I own dresses from each of these brands and highly recommend them.
