Holiday Dressing: Bleu à la Mode

Putting together an outfit is not that easy. Girls like me need a loooot of time to prepare, especially if it’s for a grand occasion. The holidays are upon us and that only means more family gatherings and social events. According to Pantone, this season’s most coveted colors by designers are earthy neutrals with a dash of bold hues that represent hope, fantasy, and all things natural.

Most of the colors are different variations of blue, which also happens to be a Christmas color. So why not choose outfits that have blue in them? There are already many stores online carrying holiday-themed dresses. If you are looking for well-made yet affordable finds, go local. ZALORA’s collection of blue dresses is absolutely gorgeous! There you will find different styles from various local retailers. Inspired by the above sketches, I’ve compiled four outfit suggestions below using items from different brands. If you want to see more of my sets, follow my boards on Polyvore!

If you are the conservative type, this is great for you. The slits of the dress are not too high, and the floral details on the sides are strategically placed to accentuate your curves. Since this is long-sleeved, you don’t need bracelets and other trinkets on your wrists–just a dainty necklace and matching earrings. Accessorize your hands with a gorgeous ring and clutch to store your phone and other abubots. Then, finish it off with these pointy pair of heels.

Comfy

Comfy Elegance

During holiday events, you meet a lot of people so you need to be comfortable in your outfit. If you are not used to body-hugging outfits, why not try a wrap-around or empire-cut dress? This won’t restrict your legs, allowing you to move around freely. Match it with ankle-strap heels for more support and an elegant white clutch.

Sensual

Sensual Elegance

On the other hand, if you are the adventurous type with to-die-for collar bones, this set is perfect for you. This dress shows off just the right amount of skin and hugs the body in the right places. Accentuate your outfit with a gold-tone onyx and lapis drop earrings and watch. Then pair it with ankle-strap black pointy heels for a more sophisticated look.

Chic

Simple Elegance

Honestly, if I were to choose from all the sets in this post, I would go for this one. If you are a floral dress type of girl (like me), this pretty dress is right for you. It’s made from neoprene so it stretches to fit any body type. You don’t have to worry about eating too much as it can tuck away the bulge. Pair it with a chunky heels and black shoulder bag so you can move freely. Match it with a blue watch and earrings to complete the ensemble.

Tips You Need To Follow:

1. Wear a dress that will definitely flatter and not to falter you presence on the party – Pick on a dress that’s totally in to your style and fashion sense. Don’t wear something that you think it’s “off” to your style or you might just be having an off night in the end as well. Make sure to limit your choices on the latest styles of the season so that you will look tremendously gorgeous for the rest of the evening.
