Some Dressy Holiday Party Looks
Once Fall/Autumn begins that means that winter will soon be here. But before we even get to winter it will be time to start planning for the holidays. In the USA Thanksgiving is Thursday November 22, 2018 and then winter begins Friday December 21, 2018 in the Northern Hemisphere. Then Christmas follows a few days after winter begins on Tuesday December 25, 2018.
As you're are making arrangements for where to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas you might also be planning to have or attend some parties on either or both holiday occasions. Lots of people spend the holidays with families. Holiday celebrations can last from Thanksgiving (end of November) to Christmas (which is the end of December) all the way until the new year. So there will be lots of holiday parties and celebrations being planned and attended.
I wanted to share with you some holiday party looks for those people who have holiday parties coming up. Depending on the holiday party, the type of crowd attending this party, and if it's a work function or not all will determine your attire for the holiday party.
A holiday gathering or party would and could require a certain dress code. Some parties could be very dressy and formal and some parties could require a more a casual laid back look. Some could be black tie, ball gowns, masquerades. When it come to holiday party planning it all depends on the individual and the theme they are going for.
