Faux Fur, Velvet and Embroidery, How to Dress for Holiday Parties
This post was sponsored by Specialty retailers, inc.
This holiday season really snuck up on us! Between work Christmas parties, family gathering and black tie galas, we are playing dress up all month long. If you are a mama like me who loves to get dolled up but don’t often get the opportunity (aka can’t find something to wear), I am sharing a simple, elegant formula to dress for holiday events.
Neutral, textures and sparkle are the 3 words that best describe how I like to dress up for holiday events! But before we talk about each trend, I MUST share with you the incredible savings I scored by shopping for holiday party outfits at Gordmans.
If you aren’t familiar, Gordmans is an off-price retailer, aka they buy overstock from department and specialty stores and sell it at an amazing price. Every time I set foot in Gordmans, the offering changes. It’s like a fabulous treasure hunt, except all the goodies are well within reach! From home décor to stocking stuffers to children’s clothing and toys, Gordmans is an one stop shop for everyone on my list. Best part, I won’t break the bank or shift through racks for hours! The designers and name brands I found during my last trip are some of my proudest scores! I even saw an evening wear dress I owned (and paid well over $200 retail), for under $40! My jaw almost dropped. Gordmans Lowest Price Guarantee makes me rest easy knowing that everything is already at the lowest price possible.
Let’s get to the juicy part! I seriously cannot believe all the designer brands I found this trip. My 3 biggest trends this holiday season are faux fur, velvet and embroidery!
MY favorite way to wear this trend is draped over the shoulder. It feels rich and new. A little oversized shawl or fur trimmed collar is my preferred coverup! I actually found both of these pieces at the thredUp pop up inside Gordmans.
I will be wearing this little velvet high neck, asymmetrical dress to all the holiday cocktail parties! I love this decadent fabric paired with faux fur. Layering winter whites and neutrals is my go-to way to make an effortless statement.
Add sparkle and shine with beading and embroidery for all your black tie formal winter events. In a sea of black dresses, stand out in white! I love the romantic tulle paired with the heavy, oversized faux fur. Add a statement red lip to top off the look!
Whether you are heading to holiday tree lighting event or dashing your way to a formal ball, check out Gordmans for all the extra glam you need! I can’t wait to see what you find inside! See the winter white formal dress live in action on my stories! Words can’t even describe how elegant I felt!
