With all the upcoming Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about different outfit options for every occasion. In the next couple of weeks, it’s better to prepare for both family Christmas meetings and girly New Year’s night outs, and to put together both elegant and sultry outfits. Taking inspirations from the season’s biggest women’s winter fashion trends, we created our very own festive outfit ideas.
One of the biggest favorites this season, without a doubt would have to be mesh overlay dresses. Mesh not only creates a beautiful, sexy illusion, it also accentuates your shape and makes any outfit more trendy and interesting. Our two picks for the festive Christmas and New Year’s eve party season is our Side Split Mesh Evening Dress, which adds a dramatic touch to your look, while the puff, sequin sleeves keep the dress romantic.
Our other absolute favorite is the Polka Dots Mesh Dress, which is a bit more fun and bohemian compared to the evening dress version. Besides the classic black and white polka dots, this dress also features a pretty mini length and ruffled edges. Mesh can be paired with almost any accessory, but to emphasize its girly vibe, we recommend wearing our mesh dresses with statement earrings and lace gloves.
Velvet is without a doubt the most popular fabric of the 2017 winter season, and we perfectly understand the reason behind it: velvet is a gorgeous, royal material with an elegant warmth and shine to it, so it makes the perfect Christmas and New Year’s Eve party outfits. Sofelo offers a wide range of velvet dresses, our two favorites are the Velvet Wrap Mini Dress, which has a gorgeous wine red shade and a figure hugging wrap design, and the Tie Back Velvet Cami Dress with a cute, romantic bow on the back and a sultry mini length. Velvet looks stunning with metallic or pearl accessories, so don’t be afraid to rock this dress with a peal clutch and gold or silver stilettos.
Sophistacted Midi Length
You can never go wrong with an elegant, subtle midi dress. Because of its length, it’s appropriate to any event, so it’s just perfect for Christmas work or family parties, where you want to show your more sophisticated side. Although midi length can make your legs look a bit shorter, you can easily cancel that effect by wearing nude or patent leather high heels, which will make your legs appear longer. Our picks for the 2017 holiday season for festive outfits are the Off Shoulder Ruffle Midi Dress and the Halterneck Bodycon Midi Dress. While the off shoulder is a classic choice with ruffles emphasizing your neck and shoulder area, the halterneck is a more risky choice, which is perfect if you would like to show off your figure. For midi length dresses, we recommend wearing high heels with a cropped leather jacket or blazer to keep the right proportions of your figure.
Lace has a timeless elegance and beauty, so it’s understandably very popular during the holiday seasons. Whether you want to pick an innocent white lace dress or a dramatic wine red or black one, it will create a sophisticated and effortless vibe. Lace is a versatile fabric that you can mix with anything, such as a velvet blazer (for family dinners) or a pair of patent leather heels and metallic jacket (for the New Year’s Eve party to stand out). If you prefer a more traditional look over constantly changing trends, you will fall in love with lace this winter. Our picks are the Little Black Lace Dress, which is a new, cold shoulder take on the classy LBD with intricate black lace overlay, and the Vintage Ruffle Lace Dress, which features a stunning ruffle skirt, long sleeves and a sturdy lace overlay.
If you want to add an extra sparkle to your look, sequin dresses are going to be your go-to looks this season. Although they can be quite extravagant, they are also very versatile with lots of different styling otpions. For a Christmas party with your family, we recommend matching it with a clean cut black blazer or a chunky knit cardigan for that festive vibe. On the other hand, rock a mesh jacket or a pair of thigh high boots with your sequin dress for the year’s biggest night out and be the star of the night! For either occasion, we’ve got your perfect match. The V Neck Sequin Tassels Party Dress has a low back cut out (and it looks absolutely breathtaking with a gold drop back chain) with extra tassels for an 1920’s Great Gatsby vibe, and our other pick, the Sequin Plunge Mini Dress is a gorgeous printed sequin dress with sultry, thin straps and a shift silhouette.
