1. The red dress
A red dress in December holds the same kind of status as the Little Black Dress throughout the rest of the year – it’s a must in every woman’s wardrobe.
2. Gold jacquard
Stylish and regal, an embossed gold jacquard evening gown is guaranteed to turn heads while you twirl around on the dance floor.
3. Vintage velvet
Anything in velvet just screams winter, and anything in red or green velvet ticks all the boxes for a wedding and holiday-themed smart event.
4. Sophisticated sequins
A great way to add a little sparkle to your get-up is sequins – just remember that it’s a wedding and not New Year’s Eve, so keep the look sophisticated.
5. Blue Christmas
A top contender in the colour department for the festive season is blue, specifically dark shades of blue combined with metallic colours, which you simply cannot go wrong with.
A muted, metallic gold dress can offer the right balance subtlety and fierceness for a special occasion, which works particularly well at this time of year when everything around us appears to shine and shimmer.
