2018 Holiday Style: Christmas Formal

When it comes to holiday parties this year black tie is in. You may have noticed last year’s rainbow sparkly looks give way to a tuxedo palette of sophistication and classic glamour. The great news is that means there’s so many different styles you can coordinate that may already be in your closet to achieve the look: satin pants, paired with wrap tops in velvet or sparkly prints and sequins, or reach for all-all-black jumpsuits, mini dresses and floor-grazing gowns. 




For me this dress by Black Halo brought in fun elements of the 90s, with it’s mix of asymmetric, high-low hemlines and my favorite detail: pockets; which make the look feel so feminine and effortless.  A basic black palette means you can go big with spotlight-stealing accessories. And the bigger the better like these shiny crystal, rhinestone drop earrings from Elizabeth Cole are on-trend a and a perfect match for crystal Jimmy Choo high-heeled mule. A basic black box clutch keep things sleek and streamlined.


There’s a reason black and white is the most popular couple for parties. It’s not only classic but versatile and apropos from office parties to the most formal soirées. I hope wherever you go this holiday, you find inspiration here to take you into the new year in style!
