Tis The Season for Holiday Dresses

Tis the season to get fancy! We all have our “Top 5” favorite reasons why we love the holidays; mine just happens to be that it is an excuse to get dressed up! Holiday parties are the homecoming dances of adult-land, except now spiking the punch is encouraged.

It’s not about waking up early, watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in your fleece lined leggings, then transitioning them to the turkey (in some houses, ham) table. This blog post goes out to the ladies who love to dress up for Thanksgiving dinner by donning that perfect, go-to holiday dress that looks simply smashing!

It can be a chore to choose that perfect dress, so I’ve chosen a few of my favorite holiday styles to share.


Print heavy pieces are among the many styles to look forward to for fall, as well as one of the easiest to incorporate into your wardrobe. This brocade print shift dress from Everly is perfect for the holidays. Don’t hesitate to try out this not-so-tame trend at your family Thanksgiving dinner.

Everly Jazzy Velvet Dress

Since we’re all about fall and holiday trends, let’s discuss why velvet is high on our list for donning during the holiday season. Plush, luxurious, and oh-so refined; velvet is undergoing a renaissance and it’s a clean slate this time. Long gone are the thoughts of this fabric in the form of reenactment festival gowns, or Molly Ringwald’s pouf sleeves from the 80’s– bask in the beauty of this rich fabric.

A tried and true, timeless take on holiday fashions has to be the black and white trend. Admittedly, this marriage of hues has effortlessly transitioned from season to season for years. Is it even a trend anymore?

It can be as elegant, sophisticated or as edgy as you want it to be. One of the major advantages of this monochromatic color palette is that anyone can wear black and white, no matter what their personal style may be. The options, prints, patterns, and fits are endless and it is solely up to you on how to wear your black and white frock.
