Since it's time (or past time!) for Christmas cards to start going out, I wanted to do a throwback of last years Christmas card because I've gotten SO many questions about what to wear for holiday parties, events, photos, etc. I purchased this dress from Nordstrom last year & it was THE perfect holiday dress! It also comes in a sheath style/shorter length (which I want SO badly!) I wanted to wear this again for our Christmas card this year, lol!
Right now, Nordstrom has a few stunning sequin dresses! For example, I just got THIS (on sale!) one in - its a looser fit, but it is so cute w/tights & heels. The key to finding the perfect dress for your events is finding the right texture, like sequins, lace, etc. or a bold print. I love THIS lace dress so much - I contemplated wearing it for a party coming up! Also, try a new color you don't typically wear, I love THIS bright red dress, I think it is so gorgeous. Red is not a color I wear a lot, but during the holidays that completely changes - it will match your scenery, that's for sure! I'm linking a few of my other fave from Nordstrom in the tool below. Keep in mind that Nordstrom does free shipping & free returns so if you are nervous about a size you can order two and return the other for free.
A few other tips for amping up your look for the holidays...
-Find a red lipstick that suits you.
-Try a new hairstyle. (I wear THIS super easy undo a ton during the holidays!)
-Wear a color or style of clothing you wouldn't typically wear, Christmas & NYE is the perfect excuse to wear sequins, btw!
-Try a new makeup look... Link a bold, winged liner or a glitter eyeshadow (THIS is my go-to!) (PS. This is the best liner for a winged look!)
