There’s no more ignoring the fact that the holiday season is here, and we might actually have to drag out all of those old decorations from the garage, and attempt the dreaded task of going anywhere to get some shopping done. But aside from that, ‘tis the season for lots of parties, which usually means lots of pictures! Of course you’ll want to look your best for all of the time spent with friends and family, so amongst all of the other things on your “to-do” list this time of year, we figured you’d probably be able to squeeze in some shopping for yourself. Don’t fear, all of these can be purchased online so you won’t have to step foot inside a crowded mall!

 Dress with Sequin Sleeves

For Holiday Dinners:

Dressing for holiday dinners can be one of the most stressful situations. On one hand you want to look nice for your family/in-laws/people you’ve never met/etc. But on the other hand, you know for a fact that there’s going to be an abundance of mouth-watering food made by grandmothers who keep telling you “you’re not eating enough!”. That’s why shift dresses will be your best friend. Pair with tights and a pair of boots, flats, or heels, depending on how dressy you want to be. The looser fit but sophisticated style of a shift dress is a win-win for big fancy dinners. This long sleeved shift dress from Nordstrom has the right amount of glam with sequined sleeves.

Reunion Parties:

Why is it that old high school or college reunions always happen around the holidays? Whether you’re excited to go to catch up with old friends, or you simply want to remind that one guy how much of a catch you are, these are the types of occasions where you’re dressing to impress. A simple dress with an eye-catching feature is a great way to ensure you stay subtly sexy, but won’t blend in with the crowd. Bebe definitely has no shortage of sexy outfits, and this Beaded Bra Top is no exception.

Office Parties:

We’ve all heard a horror story (or two) about “that guy” at the office holiday party. While we can’t control how much someone wants to drink at work functions, we can help you look completely sophisticated and chic, but not like you’re showing up for another day on the job. You can choose to play it safe in your lovable little black dress, or mix it up with this wine-colored dress from ModCloth with a beautiful lace overlay.

For Holiday Brunch:

A good majority of holiday gatherings take place in the evenings, as they tend to be centered around food and alcohol. But daytime get togethers are just as fun, although you may not want to show up in a sequined and glittering party dress. Keep it a little more casual with this Lace Dress from Asos. The green hue is day-time friendly, and it works well with boots and a leather jacket if you’re headed out to run errands for the rest of the day.

 No matter where you’re headed this season, you’ll be looking like a million bucks!
