The holiday season just might be my favorite time of the year for fashion because it’s a wonderful excuse to get really dressed up.
When it comes to holiday dressing, the more extra the better. Metallics, sequins, feathers – it’s all totally acceptable this time of year! As someone who tends to dress fairly casually 99% of the time, I really enjoy going all out for holiday parties. While I love a good sequin mini as much as the next girl, they can start to feel a little played out come NYE. The velvet trend has been on the rise the past few seasons, and I think it’s such a luxe alternative to that (potentially) overdone shimmering number. This emerald green velvet wrap dress I styled today has a cheeky zebra burnout print, which makes it feel even more special. I love it paired with burgundy booties to make a statement, but it would look just as chic worn with black booties or over the knee boots. I’ve rounded a few of my favorite velvet pieces this holiday season below!
