Looking gorgeous without feeling the winter chill can get a bit tricky. Opting for a sexy dress may make you look sassy, but dressing appropriately for the weather is a more sensible thing to do.

Decide your dress depending on the kind of party you are going to attend.

For a chic and timeless look, opt for a well crafted cocktail dress. The aesthetically pleasing design meant to show off your feminine figure will definitely make you stand out in the crowd. Keep aside the traditional red and green colour, which are rather more predictable, and go for neutral iridescent shades.


In case you don’t want to go for the classic look, but would like to look like a princess right out of a fairy tale, the `Cinderella look` is a very good option. Depending on the kind of party, choose from a long gown to a bell skirt designed with tulle or beaded silk. While going for this style, make sure that you don’t go overboard with accessories as they will rather become competing elements, taking away the charm of your look.

For a formal party, there is neither the need to go in the boring business suit nor go overboard with the skin show. Keep it simple with a knee length tight fitted dress paired with a clutch to accessories and sexy stilettos to give you the prefect edge. Make sure that your dress doesn’t have dropping neck line. Keeping the weather in mind, pull up slacks and team your dress with a beautiful warm cape.

If you are someone who prefers modish look without much fuzz, then simply pull on a dress and shoes, with a few accessories and head straight to the party. Wearing anything with confidence will surely make a thousand heads turn, the only thing you need to know is your style.

Layering your dress is a good option to beat the winter chill. It will not only make you look fabulous, but will also help you keep warm. Make sure you opt for a good fabric because it’s never the length but the fabric that makes a difference. While layering up your dress, make sure that it works for the whole outfit rather than what would look like a fashion faux-paux.

Have a dressy Christmas!
