Holiday Checklist: What to Wear to Your Social Soiree

The holidays are in full swing, which means you’ll have plenty of guests to warmly welcome, drinks to toast and old friends to catch up with!  Get ready to check one more thing off of your holiday checklist with our quick guide of what to wear to your next holiday function. Find your favorite dress (and accessories) to keep you celebrating in style!

Gianni Bini Dress, Kate Spade watch, Michael kors clutch, Gianni Bini pumps, Gianni Bini heels, Gianni bini shoes

For our first holiday-ready wardrobe, we wanted to create a look that is the perfect recipe of warmth with a dash of golden glamour. The Janelle studded dress from Gianni Bini steals our hearts in  studded shine, adding a glimmering touch to this long-sleeved dress. And for all of you party planners, we know looking sophisticated reflects your punctual personality. That’s why a crisp collared shirt and this Kate Spade bracelet watch will keep you sharp in “I-got-this” confidence. Keep your holiday cheer (no matter what mishaps come your way) with the Gianni Bini Charlene sequined pumps and shimmery Fossil zip clutch.

Belle Badgley Mischka dress, Kate Landry clutch, Nina Bonique pumps, Betsey Johnson earrings

Now that you’ve proven you’re domestic diva who can whip up some good convo and hot cocoa, it’s time to celebrate with your friends! A tango of fuchsia, red and other flirty shades come together  in this sequin sheath dress from Belle Badgley Mischka. Step up the shine with the Nina Bonique pumps in rhinestone buckle embellishment. If you plan on rockin’ around the Christmas tree (aka dancing your heart out) we recommend some studs that won’t throw off your moves, like the Betsey Johnson stud earrings in dazzling fuchsia shine.  A girl on the go needs a little eye-candy that can hold on to her nightlife essentials. Grab the Kate Landry stone and sequin clutch for your clutch contender.

Gianni Bini Dress, Vince Camuto earrings, Kate Landry clutch, Gianni Bini shoes, Gianni Bini heels, Gianni Bini pumps, Black Tie

Prepare to steal the spotlight at your next gown gala. Hollywood glamour meets modern allure with this Alex Evenings off-the-shoulder gown.  This statement-red dress is softened by glistening goldtone with the Vince Camuto chandelier earrings— (keeping your collarbone bare to accentuate this embellished bust.)  Remember to give your feet the royal fête treatment with the Gianni Bini Wendy dress sandals for head-to-toe holiday glow. Kate Landry proves to be a girl’s best friend once again with this metal mesh rhinestone box. A ring top clasp closure adds rough-around-the-edges detail to this scarlet starlet silhouette.

Get the Craze: How to Style Critter Apparel

Channeling your inner spirit animal has never been more fabulous than with our selections of critter sweaters and tops. These pieces are packed with personality and can easily be tailored to suit your unique style. We’ve created 3 looks with a few of our favorite critter tops: Playful Americana, Girly Grunge, and Fashionista Sweetheart.

juniors-white-eyelash-sweater

Playful Americana: Update a classic denim jacket by layering it with this texturally-pleasing owl critter sweater from Copper Key. Open weave and an eyelash owl create interesting focal points while the denim jacket serves as the finishing touch on this playful ensemble.

juniors-white-woodland-deer

Girly Grunge: Slouchy layers, plaid, and combat boots add just the right amount of edge to this woodland deer top. Fitted skinny leggings balance out the silhouette while layering a shirt underneath adds contrast. And what grunge look isn’t complete without a little bit of plaid?

juniors-fuzzy-owl-critter

Fashionista Sweetheart: We love playing with patterns and textures, and this is a prime example. Starting with a fuzzy owl sweater  as the foundation for this look, we layered a military-style jacket (which contrasts nicely with this foil-dot skirt). During the chilly months, tights are a great addition to brave bold patterns that can elevate an outfit from the ordinary to fashion-forward.

I Promise I’ve Been Good: The Ultimate UGG Australia Wish List

The holidays are a fun time of year to dote on the people we love and appreciate the most. However, when I’m asked, “What do you want this season?” I usually return the question with a quizzical look. To combat those awkward instances, I have been thinking, “What do I want?” The answer actually came fairly easily: boots.

117949433

Everything about the fall and winter seasons begs for boots–skinny jeans, scarves, cool weather, layered looks–and if there is one must-have brand to own, it’s UGG Australia. Supremely comfortable, these boots are like sweaters for your feet and are available in a wide array of classic and contemporary styles.

UGG Australia offers the perfect balance of quality (cozy genuine sheepskin, suede, EVA outsoles with patent protected tread design) and fun details (bows, glitter, zippers, polka-dots–they have it all).

Here are a few that we love here at Dillard’s:

K_blog (1)

UGG Australia Classic Short Bailey Bow Boots: With feminine bows and a classic silhouette, these boots are ultra desirable. Warmth, comfort, and a little touch of girly frill easily make the Bailey Bow boots the topper for any holiday wish list.

UGG Australia Dakota 78 Slippers: Moccasins, polka dots, a bow, and superior cushiness—do we even need to go into why the Dakota 78 slippers are a definite must-have this season?  Whether it’s around the house or on a quick trip to the store, these slippers are made for on-the-go comfort.

UGG Australia Mini Bailey Bow 78 Boots: Everything there is to love about the Bailey Bow boots plus polka dots (which is definitely a trend this season) can be found in the Mini Bailey Bow 78 boots. Pair with leggings and an oversized sweater and take on the world.

UGG Australia Classic Short 78 Boots: The tried and true classic short boot gets a spunky makeover with polka-dotted details (we really love polka dots) that ensure that you’ll stand out where ever your ventures may take you.

UGG Australia Bailey Bling Boots: Who doesn’t love a bit of bling? Genuine Swarovski crystals adorn these comfy yet oh-so-fabulous boots. When in doubt, it’s hard to go wrong with a little bit of dazzle. 

UGG Australia Blaise Boots:  Adorned with edgy elements—zippers and buckles!—a touch of rebellion elevates your look while toes stay marvelously comfortable.

UGG Australia Blaise Moto Boots: A contemporary take on the moto boot, this cousin to the Blaise Boots ups the ante by adding glitter details to the zipper and heel. Really, what is there NOT to love?
