A Show Stopping Party Dress

The end of year is always a busy time especially because of the holidays. And with the holidays come parties! From work to friend and family festivities, there are a ton of opportunities to get dressed up. And not that I need an excuse to go shopping, but it’s never too early to start looking for the perfect dress for those holiday gatherings.  If you are looking for something that will make you stand out, then I found the perfect dress for you!

A Skater Dress in Winter? ABSOLUTELY!

When you think of winter fashion, what comes to mind? Most people think, sweater weather. But, just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean you need to stick to a wardrobe of sweaters, leggings and boots.  One of my favorite things about fashion is being able to transition pieces from season to season.  The skater dress might seem like an unlikely option for cold weather attire but with some careful styling and layering, it’s a great transitional piece.

The Sweater Dress That Will Make You Melt

The weather in Upstate New York during the Winter can be brutal and I am no fan of being cold. Finding a way to stay warm and look cute while doing so, can be a struggle. Since they don’t make heated underwear (that I know of) and insulated snowsuits aren’t exactly fashion forward, I have decided to indulge in cozy sweaters that can transition from Fall to Winter.  If you can only invest in one item this season, let it be this super cozy, oversized sweater dress from TOBI, that has, no doubt, become my newest obsession.

Age Old Rules Don’t Apply

 

I am all for following the rules but not when it comes to fashion.  I believe that one’s wardrobe should be a reflection of their own personal style.  The age old rule that you can’t wear white after Labor Day is totally outdated. Fashion is ever changing and it doesn’t have to follow rules. The choice to wear white during any season is yours.

This look is just an example of how you can wear white during the winter months. I’m featuring white skinny jeans by BLANKNYC, a cream colored top from Express and layered with a denim button down and a super soft, beige, faux fur, vest (both staple pieces in my wardrobe).

It’s all about layering, especially with this wacky New York weather. When it’s 70 degrees one day and 20 degrees the next, you need to be prepared for anything, and layering is the answer. Simply add or take away a layer depending on the weather.  This denim button down is so versatile. It can be worn over a flannel, a tee shirt, on it’s own, or a dress….so basically anything. I even take it on vacation with me and throw  it on over my swimsuit by the pool.

Get your white on and layer away!

“Fashion wasn’t what you wore someplace anymore; it was the whole reason for going.” —Andy Warhol
