Red Lace Dress: 

I love styling red during the holiday season. And of course you know I love lace so this combination is perfect for holiday parties. I’m wearing an Aqua dress here that fits well in size XS. This particular style was a little more roomy in the waist than I liked so I am borrowing this one from a friend who also ordered it! I also tried on more options at Bloomingdale’s and posted the photos on this Fit Review. Shop more options in stock (and many on sale) below.

Gold Shimmer Dress: 

A gold dress is a stylish option for holiday parties. There are so many different styles a gold dress can be purchased in and this one is a shift dress that I had taken in slightly by my tailor last year (read about it on this blog post). I paired this gold dress with black bow heels and would finish the outfit with a clutch. I also recommend silver shimmer dresses for this holiday season (my favorite silver one here and petite friendly gold one here). Shop more options by clicking the images below.

Sheath Dress with Pops of Color: 

I am loving the versatility of this sheath dress (styled 3 ways in this blog post) and think this combination of red heels and a gold belt are perfect for holiday parties! It’s easy to dress up a classic black dress with holiday-hues and textures. Shop more options by clicking the images below.
