Every girl who’s love of clothing and the ideal that dressing up has no bounds, counts down the days until the holidays arrive. The thought of getting together with family and friends one may not have seen for months, sometimes years, excites a young lady so much that she will undoubtedly want to look her best. But between the lunches of catching up, shopping for loved ones and that pesky little thing called “work” there’s barely any time to figure out what you will wear to impress! Well, have no fear. I’ve done a bit of the leg work to help you look like you spent hours planning that perfect party frock with only a click of your computer mouse!

The easiest option is to slip on is a dress. But be a bit more daring this year and go for the long shirtdress. You can keep warm and just throw on some opaque tights and nice boots for instant glamour. Plus, this is an easy fix if there is a get together right after work. A change of accessories and you’re right out the door. Only minimal accessorizing is required when the print is bold.

Maybe you would feel a bit more comfortable (and warmer) if you wore pants. Also a great option, you can top off pants with a sequin blazer or top (only don’t do both!) and simple heels. Just make sure that your pants are a bit tapered off at the ankle. You can still wear platform heels without sacrificing warmth. It also helps when you have one standout piece so you can forgo searching for jewelry.

Hopefully, this helps you narrow down what would be the easiest to wear given your lifetsyle. Just be sure not to spill any food and/or drinks when you’re at all those holiday functions!
