What to Wear to a Fancy Christmas Party

The holiday season is a wonderful time for a fancy Christmas party because it allows for going “over the top” without looking out of place. Anything goes when it comes to finding dresses that shimmer and dressing them up even more with glitzy jewelry. Have fun this season wearing a dress that quite literally makes you “shine”.

A few tips for picking out the perfect Christmas dress:

Keep it classy: If you want to look elegant, you need to keep modesty in mind. Anything too low or too short is going to make you look uncomfortable and distract from an otherwise great outfit.

Dress it up: Don’t be afraid of being too fancy. Fabrics like chiffon, silk, velvet, etc., are completely appropriate especially during the holiday season. If your dress is simple, add glitzy accessories such as a statement necklace or bold shoes. Be anything but boring.

Consider the Retro Look: A good portion of Christmas songs heard throughout the season are classics from the 1940’s-1960’s, so why not bring back influences of that time period through your look? I personally love the retro style because it’s both nostalgic and sophisticated. Generations young and old will appreciate this style. You can find many vintage style dresses from Modcloth.

I recently went to a fancy Christmas party with my husband and chose this dress from Shabby Apple. I can no longer find it on the website, but the dress has been around for awhile and they always restock it eventually in several different colors.
