The Little White Dress
A little black dress can do no wrong at any party, but if you want to look more of-the-moment why not try the same concept in a winter white? A mod-styled little white dress like this crepe Valentino is both sleek and minimalist.
Retro velvet is perfect for the winter party season. It’s thick enough to keep you warm and is slinky and sexy at the same time. Choose a sassy off-the-shoulder style like this little number from House of Holland to wear to a cocktail party.
Lace has been a big trend all year, and it shows no signs of letting up for the holidays. Here’s a little black lace dress with sheer panels courtesy of Topshop.
If you really want to make an appearance, go wild with both sequins AND feathers like in this hand-dyed, crazy glamorous wintry cocktail dress from Matthew Williamson.
