The Holidays are here and that means it's time for lots of parties - and lots of different types of parties! The Family Holiday Dinner is one event you're bound to be attending at one time or another this Holiday season, whether it be your own family's, your boyfriend's, or even your best friend's. This can be one of the more trickier events when it comes to dressing up, though. With family members aplenty - whether it be the Aunt that's your BFF, or your boyfriend's grandparents that you've never met before - it's important to make the right impression. Even though the holidays are usually a time for glitz and glam, this may be one holiday event where it's best to tone it down a notch; there will be plenty of time to show off that cute short sequin dress on New Year's Eve!
No matter what holiday you're celebrating, the general rules should hold constant: keep the fashionable side of you showing through with a cute dress, but stick to one that's more simple and toned down. Black is usually a good color choice for a simple look, but don't be afraid to show some festivity with a red, green, or blue colored dress. It's also always good to bring a blazer or cardigan to wear over the dress to cover your shoulders, especially if you choose a strapless dress.
Our 3 favorite for a Holiday family event are great simple, yet sophisticated mini dresses:
1. Dave & Johnny style 8281 cocktail dress is a strapless black dress with taped taffeta over lace for fabric. It's a very classic looking LBD, with unique styling to it with the distinctive textured stripes throughout the dress.
2. Terani style H1216 cocktail dress comes in the colors red and blue - both perfect for the Holidays. It has a scooped cowl neckline in both the front and back of the dress.
3. Clarisse style 2044 cocktail dress is a sweet mocha colored dress that's adorned with beading and rhinestones. The pretty patterns gives it such a distinctive look, while the mocha color complements the beading and keeps the dress toned down.
