How to Dress Up for the Holidays!

Festivities abound and special occasions hit your door in the form of fancy and cool invites. Friendly gatherings, dinner parties, charity events, and even glamorous galas are gradually filling in empty spaces in your November calendar. We do consume a lot during holidays, but we can definitely shop smartly mixing our formal wardrobe staples with new stunners we found at evaChic! Let’s see the things we really need to invest on, as classic additions to our eveningwear!

LITTLE BLACK DRESS

Having one is not enough, yet it’s a good start. A little black dress can be instantly dressed up and down with the addition of jewelry, high heels, and a statement clutch. Black is sleek and ever-flattering. As a timeless neutral, it mixes well with everything, from bold shades to pastels and metallics. Your dress can better be knee-length, because it matches both corporate life and a busy day that continues into a fun night out. Fit-and-flare is a universal silhouette that creates an elegant hourglass figure accentuating the waste. And, if confident enough, you can dare wearing a fitted dress with a so much on-trend turtleneck!

SPARKLY DRESS

Whether it’s an evening gown or just a shift dress, it has to be covered with the right amount of sequins, beading or other glittering embellishment. And if textural embroidery isn’t your think, your dress can just be made of a lamé fabric emulating a 70s feel! Think of Bianca Jagger and Jerry Hall in the Studio 54 era! Any short of sparkliness is totally acceptable!

SOMETHING RED

A red dress, skirt or coat gets your right away into the Holiday spirit! You don’t need to overdo it, just keep one spicy piece per outfit, combining it with colors other than black which would be totally predictable. Combine red with light pink, silver, off-white or even baby blue. Make it look a bit more innocent, yet still festive and chic!

SEPARATES

Dresses are effortless basics in your wardrobe, because you don’t need to spend time thinking of a proper combination. Yet separates – meaning tops and bottoms – will give you the opportunity to get endless interesting combos out of a smaller pool of clothes. You can mix a black or metallic top with literally all your dressy skirts and pairs of pants. And you will be playful with colors, styles, textures and volumes. That also alludes to a boyish glam look – a suit or other – such as the one Kourtney Kardashian dared wearing during her mother’s Great Gatsby-themed 60th birthday party. Separates are real fun!

LACE AND FLUFFINESS

The textural game goes on with a fur or shearling stole, a lace dress, a coat with appliques or embroidery, and several sultry details such as pompoms, tassels, and silk fringes. Lace has a see-through feel that reveals some skin or fakes nudeness. It always looks expensive and glamorous. It’s your way to dress up a special moment!
