Nue by Shani
Sold by: Anthropologie

Fit Guide
Sure, reds and greens always represent the holiday season, but they are also fashionable colors for Fall and Winter this year, too. This Nue by Shani dress has such a sophisticated take on using green, with a gorgeous jacquard (that basically means the pattern is woven into the fabric) that blends the amazing shade of green with black. It is so subtly chic – perfect for any holiday cocktail party or dinner. The banded waist and clever hip seams help you create that perfect hourglass shape in a modern fit that comes in 00-16, and Petites, too. While it’s shown with bare legs, the fabric has enough weight to it that black tights or sheer hose will absolutely work with it, too. There is also a similar version using deep blue and black.

The Elegant Holiday Bash: Ladies’ Festive Dressing Series, Part 2 (of 3)

We continue our series on Holiday Party Dressing this week with a focus on those dressier parties. (If you missed it, we covered Office Parties last week, and if your office party is more formal, you’re in the right place here.) These are truly festive affairs, where you can take the opportunity to really have some fun with your fashion. Holiday color, sparkle, and pattern will get you in the spirit. This season, red is a must-have color, as are deep colors and black, all perfect for the occasion at hand. Lace, metallic, and velvet fabrics (including some novelty, like fur, feathers, and leather) give us some fabulous options to get excited about.

Within the world of “dressy” affairs, there are 2 levels, as you can see below. Once you’ve checked out the details to see which parties apply to you this season, head over to this week’s Fashion Finds, “4 Elegant Holiday Bash Outfits: Sophisticated Style for the Ladies”, to see 2 outfits we’ve put together for each type. Whether you show your holiday style in a classic or style-forward way, we’ll help you get ready to have some fun, and feel great about how you look.

Formal Celebration. Now, we’re getting serious about our party fun – in the classiest of ways, of course. For a holiday party like this, there is often music and dancing, and (hopefully) some signature holiday cocktails. Because it’s the holidays, unless the invite specifically says black tie, you have some flexibility in dress – long and cocktail lengths both work. Don’t feel confined to holiday red. Deep jewel tones and sleek black are just as appropriate. Beading and embellishment provide instant holiday sparkle. And this season, velvet is fresh again, while fabrics with rich texture, using lace or jacquard like this featured dress, create an instantly festive touch. The red is so deep, it’s as slimming as black, yet has enough color to show off the pattern that’s woven into the fabric. We love how the neckline feels open with a v-neck and tapered straps, but still give you enough coverage to wear a traditional bra. The seam at the waist hits at the smallest part of your torso and gently flares out for a beautiful contemporary fit. This is a color that can easily be worn with black hose and shoes if you don’t want to go bare-legged. SEE 2 OUTFIT IDEAS IN THIS WEEK’S FASHION FINDS.

Cocktail Party/Dressy Sit-down Dinner. Oh, how we love a good cocktail party or lovely sit-down dinner over the holidays. So upbeat, and often themed to the colors and flavors of the season. Whether your employer hosts it or a friend or a charity you are involved with, it’s generally a very upbeat atmosphere. A cocktail dress will generally be your best friend for these parties, whether you choose some holiday color or simple black. You can also play with something sophisticated and tailored, like an embellished blazer with a silky blouse and skirt or trousers. Or a sleek jumpsuit, like this one from Eliza J. The beaded waist and faux wrap styling are insanely flattering – and just as comfortable. A modern replacement to a cocktail dress, it’s just as dressy and ideal for cold weather, since your legs will be covered – giving you the opportunity to add strappy heels without freezing. You can even add this black/silver jacquard scarf for added holiday flourish that you can drape over your shoulders – it works with the wider sleeves on this jumpsuit perfectly.
