A little black dress or sparkly dress is always on par for the party scene, but who says holiday dressing has to be so cut and dry? Here are some not-so-basic ideas for giving festive a whole new meaning this holiday season, from snakeskin shorts to sequin dresses to velvet skirts. Venture out of your comfort zone and put on something bold or sparkly, even if you're only kicking it in your living room this year!
Our BB Dakota Hit the Lights Dress performs double duty as a gorgeous New Year's dress and a fun holiday dress. We love to pair it with knee-high boots, but it also looks fantastic with a pair of black heels. It's as fun to toss on as it is to wear, and we see this one becoming a closet staple! Plus, it can't hurt to let yourself shine every now and then.
You may have noticed that we love a piece with multi-wear ability - our Molly Puff Sleeve Blouse fits the bill. Easy to pair with dressier pants or patterned shorts, like our Lane Snakeskin Smocked Waist Shorts for wherever your holiday celebrations take you. After your holiday celebrations, pull this shirt out for anything from a football game to a fun dinner with friends. This is a top that you can over and over and still elicit that most sought after question - "Where'd you get that?!"
We usually go for black on New Years'. It's flattering, timeless, and fits in with everything, but we love the Lucy Paris Cleo Skirt in gold so much we're swapping out our usual black get-up for a marigold look this year. Velvet has been majorly trending for the last year and doesn't look to be going anywhere anytime soon. The Lucy Paris Cleo gold skirt features gorgeous velvet pleating that is unbelievably flattering and pairs beautifully with our Lucy Paris Emma Mock Neck top in black. It's a look that will definitely turn heads.
Are you doing something a little more low key? Toss on our BB Dakota Watch Out Vegan Leather Snakeskin Jacket to spice up even the simplest of outfits. Another great option to pair with our Lucy Paris Emma Mock Neck in Black and Karlie Clothes Smocked Waist Skort in black. Wearing black to a holiday party may not seem revolutionary, but this mix of proportions from the skirt and jacket makes it a fun take on the little LBD!
