  • Easy Dresses for Every Season

    Summer has just begun, but we must look forward to the upcoming seasons in order to make our wardrobe work overtime. In your closet, you may already have some easy dresses for every season that you've overlooked. Like that favorite summer dress you just can’t live without? If you could wear it all year long you would, right? With a bit of creative styling, you can! Layer and combine texture and pattern in an artful way to extend the life of your most cherished pieces.

    The key to carrying over lightweight dresses into the colder months is to keep things simple. This can also work with heavily beaded dresses or cut-out dresses. To have the greatest success, a short body hugging dress works best as a base for your cooler weather accessories. Keep casual cocktail dresses, either in prints or in solid colors, in mind for this application. Easy dresses cut in simple forms and light fabrics make versatile additions to your closet.

    Mixing it Up With Some Hot New Styles

    Easy Dresses - Sherri Hill 50146 Strapless Floral Black and Pink Print Cocktail Style Sherri Hill 50146 Strapless Floral Print Cocktail Dress

    Sherri Hill 50146 is a great example to illustrate how to pull this off. A bold graphic floral print doesn’t have to be confined to summer or spring. Since this dress has a strapless sweetheart bodice, it would go well with a solid color cardigan, solid knit stockings, and a pair of biker boots that hit just below the calf. This gives off a look that says sweet but edgy. Playing with contrasting textures is a great way to emphasize the best of each piece. The satin-like finish on the dress against a knit fabric can look sumptuous and rich. Depending on the color cardigan you chose, you can pop one color out of the floral pattern. A pale pink or a bold fuchsia makes for an interesting statement. Putting leather boots with this look makes it feel like fall, but keep them simple. The main focus is the pattern design on the dress. Neutral earth tones go well with this look. Deep blues or slate grays are colors that could pair well with this cocktail dress. Continue reading

    Faux Leather

    Leather Dress Jovani 88152

    Leather and faux leather is a go-to fabric for the cooler fall and winter months, but usually it's reserved for clothing like jackets and pants. There's no reason why you can't extent the totally badass fabric to dresses, though. We especially love Jovani 88152 to rock a little leatherette for the holidays. This stunner features gold studded detail on the shoulders to bring an extra bit of edge to the look and an eyelet cut-out detail throughout the dress. It's easy to keep dressed down for a night out at a concert or club, or dress it up for a more formal holiday party, such as your office holiday party. Continue reading

  • 5 Perfect Dresses For A Thanksgiving Dinner Party

    Thanksgiving is almost here! As of today, you're 10 days away from delicious Thanksgiving food. Which, of course, also means that it's time to put together that perfect outfit for your Thanksgiving dinner party. Whether attending your own family dinner, your significant other's dinner, or a friend's, you'll want to be dressed for the occasion.

    Most Thanksgiving dinners are pretty casual, but some can be more dressy, so make sure to find out the dress code ahead of time. If you'd like to go with a nice pair of jeans or pants and sweater, last week we showed you our 5 favorite sweaters for holiday parties (or gift giving!). Rocking a dress is always a go-to option, as well, though, so today we're showing our our 5 favorite dresses for a thanksgiving dinner (which are of course also perfect for any other holiday party you may have coming up). These dresses are all conservative enough for a family dinner, while still being so on-trend. Check them out below!

    Lace Fit And Flare Dress

    Long Sleeve Lace Mini Dress

    Black lace is always a staple for the holidays, and we love it in this Long Sleeve Lace Mini Dress. This lace dress features a sexy illusion back, long sleeves, and a v-neck with a keyhole. The long sleeves makes this dress so perfect for the colder fall and winter months. This dress also comes in the color Ivory if you'd like to rock the Winter White trend.

    Crochet Fit and Flare Dress

    Crochet Black Dress

    This Beautiful Crochet Mini Dress is similar to the first lace mini dress, but with a crochet look instead of lace. The sexy, yet classy style features a crochet bodice, a-line waist and long illusion sleeves. This dress also comes in red if you're looking for a more bold color.

    Winter White Dress

    Shail K 3665

    You can also rock long sleeves in a white dress with Shail K. 3665, a 3/4 sleeve mini that's truly a piece of art. The fun beaded design sets this dress apart giving it a stylish, lively, one of a kind look that's so easy to dress up for a more formal part or down for a more casual dinner.

    Red Lace Cocktail Dress

    Alyce 4416

    Red, green, and blue are always staple color choices for the holidays if you want a brighter look. We especially love Alyce 4416 because it's a classic cocktail dress look that will never go out of style. From its v-cut neckline, open back, and rhinestones sprinkled upon the sheer lace sheath over linking, this dress is sure to be a crowd pleaser no matter what the event. You can easily add a cardigan over this dress for a Thanksgiving dinner, and drop the cardigan for some night time fun. This dress also comes in colors Black/Nude, Blue Coral/Nude, Burgundy/Nude, and Deep Plum/Nude, all perfect colors for any holiday event.

    Classic LBD

    Sherri Hill 32006

    While the first two dresses we mentioned are great black dress choices, if you want a more classic form fitting LBD, go with Sherri Hill 32006, a short jersey and lace dress. This totally versatile dress features cap sleeves, lace bodice, a v-neckline, and a stretch fitted jersey body. This is definitely a dress that you can easily wear time and time again, from Fall and Winter right into Spring and Summer.

    Whatever you end up wearing for your Thanksgiving dinner, have a wonderful time hanging out with your family and friends!
