With the holiday season officially here, there are countless occasions to get dressed up and embrace festive finery in the days ahead. Whether you’re on your way to a family dinner or a cocktail party with friends, holiday get-togethers mean that a variety of fancy frocks are an absolute must.
Although ugly Christmas sweaters may fit the bill for those lazy afternoons, celebrating in style means wearing luxurious velvet and satin. This holiday season, draw your inspiration from the stars and step out in inspired holiday-ready dresses.
Sexy yet seasonal like Josephine Skriver
The 23-year-old Victoria’s Secret model stuns in this long-sleeved velvet minidress which is perfect for a glamorous night out. Staying true to the holiday spirit, Skriver’s dress is a gorgeous teal green shade. Meanwhile, the short length and curve-hugging fit makes this an appropriate look for everything from cocktails with your girlfriends to New Year’s Eve.
Classic and conservative like Kate Bosworth
If family-friendly functions call for demure dressing, turn to Kate Bosworth as your style inspiration. The beautiful 33-year-old actress looks incredibly chic in this black mid-length sheer frock. The classic white polka dots and waist-cinching black leather belt complete the look, transforming an otherwise classic dress. If you prefer simplicity, skip the shimmering stilettos and step into a pair of gleaming black patent leather booties.
Formal and fashionable like Halle Berry
The timeless 50-year-old star boasts classic and ladylike style, and certainly looks like a Hollywood bombshell in this slinky off-white metallic number. For any formal galas or company Christmas parties on your calendar, try channelling your inner Halle Berry. The high-low hemline, high halter neckline and luminous fabric turn this ethereal frock into an eye-catching creation.
