Take a peek at a few of our favorite party dresses, and how to style them, just in time for the holidays!
Between our Kit, collections, and holiday giveaway, you may have noticed we are in the holiday spirit here at BurdaStyle! I love dressing up for the holidays, and sewing your own dress is such a fun way to get a picture perfect look all though the season.
The Champagne Toast
Be ready for any party in a dress that’s flirty and feminine. The Knotted Dress and Gather Dress are figure-conscious, and the long sleeves mean you don’t need a wrap. For a fluttery silhouette that’s perfect for dancing, try the V Neckline Dress. Balance a gathered or ruched silhouette with a simple shoe, soft hair, and a pair of statement earrings.
When you’re hosting a party, the last thing you want to worry about is your dress. Choose an easy to wear style for extra confidence. The Princess, Banded, and plus size Pleated Dress all have just a few details that won’t leave you tugging at necklines or hems. A chunky or patterned heel gives your outfit a little punch.
The New Year’s Eve Bash
For a late night party, choose a curve-hugging dress that gets you noticed. A strapless cut like the Strapless Corset Dress or the suede Seamed Strapless Dress shows off up-dos and bold jewelry. Or, use New Year’s to wear a bold style like a Stretch Sequin Dress or Sculpture Dress. There’s no better night to wear a playful fabric like zebra stripe sequins (fabric shown from MoodFabrics.com) or bright pink satin. Show a little less skin in the Gathered Tube Dress
The Holiday Brunch
A dress that skims the body is flattering for informal brunches with family or friends. The Bow Front Dress gets a ladylike touch from the long bow at the neckline. A simple design like the Cowl Dress or Boat Neck Satin Dress leroks just dressy enough with an embellished loafer and cat-eye sunglasses.
Are you sewing a dress this holiday season? We’d love to see it!
