1 dress 3 ways: holiday party style

Friends, the season of holiday parties is among us.

A very common predicament for many ladies I know is trying to figure out what to wear to holiday parties. Maybe you got invited to a house party with a few friends and then you've got an office cocktail party. Or perhaps a festive luncheon is on your radar?

I'm going to make a very bold claim today, y'all...

You can wear the same little black dress (henceforth LBD) to all of those events.

This LBD (Old Navy) can be dressed down or up depending on how you style it. In outfit 1, leatherette leggings, animal print flats/bag and a gold belt make the dress appear more casual...but still seasonally appropriate. In outfit 2, the dress is worn with bare legs and suede booties. A turquoise scarf and bag provide a nice pop of color and keep it from looking too dressy. In outfit 3, elegant jewelry and a sparkly clutch dress up taupe tights and pumps.

You can satisfy your wardrobe requirements for all of your holiday events with just 1 dress! 

Have a happy weekend, y'all!



  1. I am a huge fan of tights! Love it styled the 3rd way. Ok, so I'm pretty sure I have this same dress in blue. It's from Old Navy too and I picked it up last year!


  2. SO cute! I like the second and third options the best!


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
