There’s no doubt that the little black dress can be the answer to all your holiday dressing woes as it is incredibly easy to glam up and accessorize.

The metallics trend always pops up during this time of year, so you can’t wrong with a chic and shimmery frock for the holidays.

Trend #3: Delicate Lace

Who doesn’t love some romantic and feminine lace? Classic black is a no-brainer and won’t fail you, but if you feel like showing off your festiveness, try a red number instead!

Trend #4: Velvet

Trend #5: Sequins

There’s no better occasion and season to sport a vibrant and fun dress than the holidays, and while my style falls pretty much on the neutrals territory, I’m a big advocate of sequins for the holidays, especially for New Year’s Eve.
