Nothing makes me happier then holiday fashion. I don’t know what it is, but I love getting dressed up, and the holidays are the perfect opportunity to do that, not that I ever need an excuse. (Remember Fancy Fridays?) And while athleisure fashion was understandably a popular trend the last two years, and I whole heartedly admit that in my older age I have become extremely low maintenance in my dress up routine, I still appreciate a great dress. With get togethers, balls, holiday dinners, galas, and even midnight mass, it is a feast of dressing up this time of year. And I love getting a special dress or ten (half kidding) during the holiday season.
I actually bought this same dress in red last year and I was so obsessed with it, that when I saw that it came in green this year, I knew I had to get it. It is so festive, yet still very chic. The green is the color of a Christmas tree which I love and is on serious point this time of year. While it is on the shorter side, especially given what I usually wear, it isn’t so short that I am self conscious and I adore the a-line skater skirt, which has a bit of a swing when I walk! The v-neck is low, without being to revealing and the ruffle around the neck and the shoulders might just be my favorite part. It is frilly AND flirty.
How I styled it
This dress is so easy to style. From booties to heels to a jacket to wraps it works with everything. For a true Christmas look, I paired it with my red bow stilettos and added a cream fringe wrap for some warmth. I also have worn it with my black faux suede moto jacket for a more covered up look, and for even more style added a hat. This really is a super simple, yet very elegant Christmas look, that I have been rocking all season long!
