If you're craving a head-turning look that's both seasonal and fresh, add some edgy, glam pieces to a red dress for a unique look that strikes a harmonious balance between traditional and modern.
It doesn't matter if I'm wearing jeans or an elegant dress, a black leather jacket is always my go-to coverup. This staple is so classic yet it gives you an instant cool factor that's very of-the-moment. Add a deep red lip and there's no stopping you!
(Apparently I still have tan lines in November...)
Everyone thinks of red & green as the typical holiday color combo - and for good reason - but I prefer red & gold when it comes to my holly day wardrobe. It's an ultra-chic alternative to the conventional look. This Rebecca Minkoff clutch really makes my dress shine and brings out the warm tones!
The rich red tones in this dress really stood out to me when I was thinking of special holiday outfits. I immediately knew that I had to pair them with gold. Gold, black, and red is such a striking combination that it's the perfect attention-grabbing outfit for this magical time of year.

Red is so synonymous with the holidays that I couldn't resist decking out this festive-hued dress for the season. I matched my lips to my dress (you can never wear too much red lipstick in the winter) and injected some flecks of gold into the look as well.
I'm not one for rushing into Christmas festivities before Thanksgiving is even over, but when it comes to fashion, it's never too early to plan ahead! After all, getting dressed for holiday gatherings is part of the fun of the season and having a strategy simply helps you avoid that pre-party stress when you're faced with the dreaded question, "What do I wear tonight?!" This year when organizing your holiday wardrobe, think of the following formula:
1.) Rich hues
2.) Ladylike silhouettes
3.) Sparkle and shine
