12 Days of Dresses: Perfect holiday picks

Welcome to GL’s holiday dress guide! We’re packing in 12 days of dresses to give ya options galore just in time for soirée season. Wanna know what frock flatters you best? How to freshen up your LBD? What exactly to rock on NYE? Keep checking the Style channel between Dec. 1 and Dec. 12 for tonsa great reasons to get dressed up!

 

Here at GL, we love any excuse to get a little more glammed up. Here are a few ideas on what to wear to your family gatherings this December—in festive hues, of course.

 

Rock the Red

It may seem obvious, but red is one of the most cheerful colors for the holidays. It definitely draws attention in a crowded room. Wanna stand out? Try our picks:

 

This color screams Christmas! The belt detail makes it incredibly sophisticated and is flattering on almost any shape. It also comes in navy if you wanna show off your Chanukah pride.

 

 

ASOS Full Skater Dress with Belt, $44, asos.com

 

This swingy frock is the epitome of a party dress. Paired with gold jewelry and pointy pumps, the look would be flawless.

Go for the Green

Red is often the more dominant color when it comes to Christmas but don’t be afraid to deviate from what everyone else is wearing and go for a bright shade of green. The best part about getting a green dress? You can wear it after the holidays and it won’t look out of place.

 

A dropwaist dress is über-flattering on babes with shorter torsos. Try adding a major statement necklace and a couple cool cocktail rings to jazz things up.

Greensleeves

A silky long-sleeved shirtdress can go casual for fun family gatherings with a pair of tall boots. Add a ladylike watch and you’re set to impress!

Major Metallics

Silver and gold are a major trend this season. And besides, who doesn’t love a li’l extra sparkle? Score one of these stunners and top it off with a cute cardi for dinner, then re-wear it for New Year’s with some whoa-worthy shoes!

 

Seeing stripes

Stripes are everywhere lately--but sequin stripes really hit a high note. Love!

Frosted flowers

What could be sweeter than sequined flowers? A fit ‘n’ flare silhouette seriously flatters all shapes—and you’ll look prettier than a sugarplum fairy.
