Three Holiday Party Looks: For Your Glam, Classic, or Edgy Style!

With Christmas and New Years fastlt approaching, I thought I better hustle and get movin' with a holiday fashion post! I wanted to put together 3 looks perfect for a holiday party, whatever your style may be. While some of the dresses may be a bit of a splurge, I kept all the accessories under $75! I wanted to keep a common theme of using a black dress that was festive, but you could easily wear after the holidays. Okay, it's time to get dressed up!

Look #1 : Classic Beauty

This first look is perfect if you love vintage style! You will totally be channeling your inner Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Monroe. I found this really cool vintage-looking black and gold dress online and fell in love. And it's on sale for $89! I love the longer hem line and it just gives off a very classy, sophisticated feel. I decided to pair this with a very simple black clutch ($20), a pair of sparkly but subdued studs ($48), and bright pinky-red lipstick from Lipstick Queen (instead of a predictable classic red!) I kept the shoes simple, but kept with the vintage feel by choosing a pointed toe ($38). The star of the look is definitely the dress!


Look #2: Timeless Glam

This second look is perfect if you just want a simple, but still eye catching look. It's very effortlessly "hollywood glam." The tulle skirt on this simple black dress adds a fun, festive element. I kept the shoes simple, again, with a black almond toe pump ($69). I added the "pops" of this look with a sparkly gold clutch ($65) and a bright red lipstick ($22).


Look # 3: Edgy

This is probably my favorite look, so of course I saved the best for last. Well, honestly I couldn't pick a favorite- but this outfit really gets me.. The dress...let's talk about this dress ($110). I loved the two toned texture of this dress. The criss-cross pattern on the top of the dress gives it an un-expected take on sequins. I think the flowiness, almost "tutu-like" skirt softens the edginess of the top and balances out the whole look. To keep with theme of the criss-cross diamond shape, I found these really cool two-tone (again) earrings ($6.20) and clutch ($40). They match the dress without being to "matchy matchy". For the makeup,  I think a sparkly smokey eye would be gorgeous. Line your eyes with a black kohl liner (smudge for a smokey effect), this Rimmel Scandaleyes is my favorite ($5).  For a shimmery gold pop, apply the Stila Magnificent Metals eyeshadow in Vintage Black Gold ($32). Then finish off with a nude lip, like Fairest Nude from Loreal. ($6)  For the shoes, I chose these cute black booties, which have a nice heel. I think a bootie gives a little more edge to an outfit than a classic pump!
