Fashion Friday: Holiday Edition

Happy Friday! Welcome to the very first “Fashion Friday”! The weekend is here, hope you had a great work week! With Christmas approaching in just a handful of days your weekend will most likely involve a holiday party. For Fashion Friday I have decided to write about what to wear for holiday parties. I wanted to give you a few ideas as to what to wear for parties with three different dress codes: formal, casual, and tacky (because who doesn’t love a good tacky sweater). Formal If your holiday party this weekend involves cocktails, dancing, and possibly all the higher ups in your company, you will probably need to dress up a bit. I love to find clothes that are cute, fit well, but also don’t break the bank. For me, Forever 21 often fits all of these categories. I LOVE this dress! The white fabric with hints of metallic threads give this dress a chic yet edgy winter feel. The price is the best part, only $29.99!

I have been a fan of Francesca’s for quite a long time. It is definitely one of my go-to places for all types of clothes and accessories. This top is a beautiful cranberry color (perfect for the holidays, right?) and has pretty crochet detailing on the sleeves.

I love to see how creative some get by making their own sweaters. If you don’t have the time or creativity to make your own, Amazon is your best friend! I found this awesome reindeer sweater with a pom pom for a red nose. This sweater is from a company called Forever New and is priced at $16.18-$24.99. You could also venture out to your local resale store or Goodwill and find one for cheap!     812E93tqM7L__UY679_ Find this sweater here: http://www.amazon.com/Forever-Unisex-Rudolph-Snowflake-Knitted/dp/B00GHTE4M8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1419032016&sr=8-1&keywords=tacky+christmas+sweater (photo credit: Amazon, Forever New – link above)   So there you have it!
