Well, it is that time of year when we girls are trying to figure out what to wear to a holiday Christmas party. Most of us have at least 2-3 holiday functions to attend and depending on the event, the dress code can be very different from one to the next. You could have an invitation to a swanky company party or maybe a small get together with the neighbors on the block. What we could hope for during this economy is that we would either have the appropriate clothing in our closets already or if we buy something, we could wear it to any event. I found some great rules of thumb and I wanted to share them with you. Here are my top choices:
What To Wear To A Holiday Christmas Party
- Core Pieces: The smart choice for your party wardrobe is to have a few core pieces you can dress up or down depending on where you were going. It is best to have a pair of dark colored pants and one or two complimentary solid tops. You can’t go wrong if you add a pretty cardigan, possibly one with a nice embellishment.
- Accessories: Following the rule of thumb with your core pieces, do the same with your accessories. A nice set of pearls and matching earrings are a great addition to any outfit. A vintage brooch adds a beautiful touch of elegance to your ensemble and a satin or possibly a rhinestone clutch will seal the deal.
- Dresses: If you prefer a dress to slacks, follow the same guidelines as you did with your core pieces. A cocktail dress in a pretty jewel tone is perfect for an office party while a more subdued but still pretty dress for a more casual get together is a good choice. If you want some really lovely choices for the prefect dress to wear to that special party, you should visit Mikarose. This company has made quite a name for themselves for their signature modesty styled clothing.
Tasteful Clothes For Women
I know how difficult it can be to find tasteful clothes for women. I hate to sound like a pride, but I don’t care for clothes that show everything you’ve got to the entire world. Even when I was younger, I was never comfortable wearing anything that was too revealing. Now that Caitlin is 14, she has begun to be interested in wearing more mature clothing. I love Mikarose because the clothes are all beautiful yet modest, which is what they are known for. I wanted to find a nice dress for Caitlin to wear to the parties and school functions this year. We decided on the pretty Bailey ($49.99) in a pale pink blush. I think the button accents are really cute and the length is just perfect for her. We finally agreed to let her wear a low heel and the Bailey looks perfect with her “big girl” shoes. If you are looking for something pretty yet demure, Mikarose is the perfect place to look.
