Style SOS: What Does Dress Festive (Really) Mean?

The holidays are around the corner and that means we’ve already come across the words ‘Dress Festive’ quite a few times. If you are like us, you are also probably wondering what this dress code really means. The simplest way to explain Festive Attire would be cocktail attire infused with some holiday flair but if you are looking for some outfit inspiration, read on for three foolproof festive looks.

#1: SPRINKLE SOME SPARKLE  

Wear if: You like to keep things classic, but are not afraid of bling.  
The most foolproof outfit involves anything with sequin. All you then need is your smile to shine at any holiday party. This is also the most efficient desk-to-office party trick in the world. Dress up your dark wash denim with a sequin jacket, jazz up your wardrobe classics with a sparkly minaudière or go all out with statement jewelry. ‘Tis the season!

#2: LBD, WITH A HOLIDAY TWIST

Wear if: You like to feel festive but don’t necessarily love being the center of attention. 
Can you ever go wrong with a Little Black Dress? That’s a rhetorical question but there are ways the LBD can get even more perfect than it already is. Two of our favorite ways to make the classic LBD feel festive are via flowers (through a dramatic print or embroidery) and some delicate lace. Just add some red lipstick, throw your hair in an up-do and voilà!

#3: YOU DO YOU!

Wear if: You are not afraid to stand out in the crowd. 
Atleisure-inspired pants + velvet bomber at a holiday party? Why not! The best kind of festive attire is the festive attire that feels most like YOU! Take help from luxe fabrics like velvet, wear a bold printed jumpsuit, tank up all the fun jewelry you can lay hands on, incorporate razzle-dazzle ruffles… You get the drift.
