Happy Holiday Dressing

The festive season has many stresses, but running to the mall for an outfit the night before an event should not be one of them! Lucky for you we're not even in the mall.
We too have parties galore and we know the power of a great look. Dress up for the people you haven't seen since last holiday gathering, dress festive because why the heck not, and dress comfortably because it's the season of over indulging.
We've put together some of our favourite looks guaranteed to stand out amongst the sea of ugly Christmas sweaters

Model: Callie Wexler
All looks available in store and our stylists are happy to assist you through this crazy time (one gift for someone else, two gifts for you)

Holiday Party Dress Guide

Some people start thinking about what they're going to wear to their Christmas party months in advance. Most of us scramble last minute and struggle to find that one dress that will remind everyone of just how fabulous we are. To help you find something special this season we'll take you through the classics of a holiday wardrobe so you're sure to wear something that promises to raise heads and holiday spirits.

Classic Red

Everyone loves a woman in red. A classic red dress is ultra feminine but can quickly go from classy to trashy. This dress by Ted Baker ($360) shows just the right amount of skin. It's perfectly constructed to flatter the female figure with a layer of lace to add a touch of elegance. 

Cobalt Blue

If there is any colour that looks good on almost everyone it's cobalt blue. The royal colour is bright enough to be considered festive yet subtle enough for those of you who feel uncomfortable in anything other than black. Choose to look very lady-like in this fitted long sleeve lace dress by Ted Baker ($375) or simply cool and casual in this inverted triangle dolman sleeve dress by J.Lindeberg ($229).  

Sparkle and Shine 

If we're honest with ourselves, we can really only get away with wearing sparkles on Halloween. Sequins, however, can fill that void during the holiday season. Make your New Year's celebrations brighter than ever in this 1920s flapper-style dress by Velvet ($279). 

Ornate and Geometrical

Mesmerize in a stunning print like this one from Torn by Ronny Kobo ($325).

LBD

We all have one and if you don't you're making life a lot harder for yourself. That's because everyone knows you can never go wrong in a little black dress no matter what the occasion. Opt for a jazzy LBD like this one by Ted Baker ($375) with an embellished neck line and ultra flirty flared skirt. Or try on something more edgy with sex appeal like this laser cut neoprene dress from Torn by Ronny Kobo ($338).  

Winter White

Anybody who tells you you can't wear white after Labour Day is sadly mistaken. In fact, wearing white in the winter months is very chic and sophisticated. Take for example this peplum-style dress by Stylestalker ($265) with it's dramatic glam.

Dress Alternatives

Don't feel like wearing a dress? You can party with the rest of them and look just as festive in a bedazzled blazer or embroidered jacket like this bolero jacket from Essentiel ($535). Or you can really shake it up with a stunning two-piece set like this blazer and skirt combo from Stylestalker (blazer $265, skirt $178).

If you haven't busted out your sweaters yet, now is the time. There is nothing quite like pulling out your old winter companions - cashmere, angora, mohair. The greatest sorrow is when you realize that some of those sweaters may not make it through another winter. Or maybe you realize that you just don't have enough sweaters or that you simply need more. Whatever your sweater dilemma we got you covered (pun intended) at Gotstyle. Swing by The Distillery location for a sweater upgrade and settle into your new favourite sweater.
