There's only one rule about holiday dressing and that's to kick things up a notch. It's a given that no one wants to look like a Christmas tree, but you also don't want to look drab in contrast to the festive surroundings. Now, it doesn't mean that you need to wear extravagant designs; there are various holiday party pieces that even sworn minimalists would love. It's all about adding a little sparkle to your look! From LBDs with a twist to velvet dresses, here are some of our fab fashion picks for the holidays.
LBDs with a twist
REDValentino Fall/Winter 18-19 Pre Collection, Price unavailable
A modified version of the classic LBD is just the right pick for those who love sporting black ensembles. Added elements like hints of colour, bell sleeves and sheer fabrics make it more interesting than your usual A-line black dress. Make your ensemble more festive by wearing a pair of statement earrings and classy stilettos. It's an elegant, no-fuss holiday look that's perfect for busy gals who want to look polished for the after-work holiday party in a jiffy.

Unless there's a specific dress code or theme indicated in the invitation of the holiday party you're going to, you can opt to stand out by going the casual chic route. Make no mistake, wearing something casual doesn't translate to showing up in your usual tee and denim outfit. It just means putting together a fun and presentable party outfit using casual pieces instead of extravagant ones. This is a good opportunity to showcase your creativity, so go ahead and experiment. Here's one outfit idea: take a playful mini skirt with cheery details and pair it with a blazer and blouse. Make sure that the colour palette is coordinated so it will still look sleek and chic.
