‘Tis the season for holiday office parties, when you’re expected to seriously pump up your look while still being work-appropriate and, more often than not, stay warm on a frigid night! Between balancing a drink and a plate all night, networking, and charming your coworkers, it can be hard to put together a great outfit. Here’s where the velvet dress comes in – it’s seasonally appropriate, beautiful for holiday parties in low lights, and undeniably luxe.
I love how Ruche’s Bouverie Lane Velvet Dress combines textures with the velvet and the lace, while still having a bit of a moody edge. The lace isn’t too sweet – in fact, it perfectly balances the clean slate of the bodice. I would pair this dress with my favorite pointed heels, and a sumptuous coat in a deep jewel tone. A swipe of red lipstick and dainty gold jewelry is all you need to complete the look and stun at your holiday party!
A taupe lining peeks through this black dress featuring a lace skirt overlay and soft velvet bodice. Finished with an elasticized waist for a flattering fit, this lovely dress is perfect for a date night. Fully lined.
How do you get into the holiday spirit for the office party? Would you wear a velvet and lace dress?
