Of course, you can always wear jeans and a sweater when you join your family for dinner and presents, but holiday dresses can make you feel so much more beautiful and festive. A tea length dress with a black velvet bodice and red, green, or even plaid satin skirt can give you the dazzle to match the Christmas tree and lights. Choose a dress that is a length and style that is comfortable for you. This way you can feel beautiful, but you can still sit on the floor and play with that baby nephew if you want to.
The Office Party
Even if your office holiday party takes place in the evening, you will want to choose a conservative dress for the event. Celebrating the holidays with your boss and coworkers is not an occasion that calls for a plunging neckline and a daring slit. Choose something in a festive holiday color, which may be red or green, or perhaps black or deep midnight blue. A conservative neckline and below the knee hem can be dressed up by using lush fabrics and a decorative waistline.
The Evening Cocktail Party
Unlike a family dinner or an office party, an evening cocktail party offers the opportunity to shop for holiday dresses that will make you feel truly beautiful and sexy. Floor length gowns and elegant cocktail formal dresses in deep holiday colors or metallic fabrics will make you shine this holiday. Choose a gown with a high, sexy slit and a sweetheart neckline to create a stir in any room you enter. In an occasion such as this, take the opportunity to shimmer a little with added jewels, sequins, and beading.
New Year's Eve
Whether you are going out with a group of friends or spending the evening with a special someone, you want to look beautiful on this of all evenings. Dazzle the room in a dress of gold or silver, whether you choose a floor length gown or a little flapper style dress that shows off every curve and your long, beautiful legs. If you are celebrating in a cold climate, choose a dress that comes with a matching jacket, shawl, or shrug to ward off the cold as you travel from place to place.
Make the Most of the Season
As you shop for holiday dresses this season, remember that you can personify the beauty and glow of the season with the fabrics, adornments, and colors that you choose. Bright or deep reds, greens, and golds depict the seasonal joy and ornamentation of the holidays. Beads, sequins, and jewels mimic the glow of the lights and tinsel. Holiday dresses for every occasion make you a beautiful part of every celebration you attend. You should prepare already for the 2013 party event.
