{Best Dressed} Christmas Soirée

Christmas is my favorite time of year for the reasons above and so many more! I love staying cozy by the fireplace, sipping hot chocolate and watching Christmas movies.. but that isn’t what this post is about. Instead, I will be talking about the other side of Christmas: mistletoe, sipping holiday cocktails, dancing with friends, all while wearing decadent clothing.

When attending a holiday soirée, the options are endless when you are choosing what to wear. However, satin, velvet, sequins, lace and tulle are always the favorites. Below I will share with you our attire and it will guarantee you stand out on the holiday party circuit.

I love this two piece set that combines a lace, “barely there” illusion and a long tulle skirt, showing just enough leg, making it the ultimate naughty-meets-nice pairing. I accessorized with a matching velvet choker and clutch to add the cherry mistletoe on top to a perfect holiday attire.

For him, he went the festive route by opting for a deep red, velvet blazer. It helped make my accessories pop and made him look merry and oh so handsome. He accessorized with a simple silk bow tie and a gorgeous JORD wooden watch that stole the show!

Whether you decide to recreate this look or are just simply inspired, I hope your holiday festivities are full of laughter, mistletoe and of course.. velvet!
