When the cooler weather starts to hit, this means pulling a Scrooge and skipping that holiday party you committed to weeks ago, right? Wrong! Although opting for a cozy night-in seems tempting, with these hot styles on deck, you’ll be raising the room temp faster than a round of hot toddies!
Outfit planning definitely doesn’t have to be a chore. Especially with Forever 21’s unparalleled selection, finding the perfect holiday or Christmas dress has never been easier. We get it. With all of the hustle and bustle of the season, adding what to wear to that laundry list of things to do is a lot to think about. Here’s a tip: our New Arrivals category is a good place to start. You’re inevitably bound to stumble upon a trendy piece you’ll love! If you’ve got something more specific in mind, like plus size cocktail dresses – you’re in luck. Because yup, we’ve got that, too.
Pile it on!
Chances are you already own a totally-cute-but-not-weather-appropriate cocktail dress from last season. If this is the case, you’re already ahead of the game! The key is to work with something in a dressier fabric. Think- satins, chiffons, and lace! Build on what you already own and layer, layer, layer! Now is the time to stock up on layering staples like lace tights, mixed-blend berets, and heavyweight coats. Throw on a fluffy teddy coat atop and no one will even know it’s the same dress from last spring! Plus, rocking a teddy coat means you get to basically wear your coziest blanket outside. Now, you definitely don’t have any excuse to go MIA this winter season!
Keep it Casual
If intimate get-togethers or smaller functions have filled up your social calendar, go cas’. Opting for a casual piece gives you more room to dress it up or down according to what the event calls for. A simple pinafore dress might just be your holiday dress of choice! Layered over a turtleneck sweater and opaque tights, you’ll be completely good to go for your holiday gift exchange. If all else fails, a sweater dress will always fit the bill. The sweater dress is classic for a reason. Almost always flattering, incredibly versatile, and uber-functional – you really can’t go wrong. Dress it up with a festive jewel necklace or dress it down with a few daintier ones, either way, you’ll be sporting a winning ensemble.
If dresses aren’t “your thing”, you can still stand out AND abide by the dress code. One word. JUMPSUITS. Lucky for you, this route lets you skip the outfit planning altogether. With elegant details like wraparound waistlines and wide-leg silhouettes, these sophisticated pieces look a lot more intimidating than they really are. So, don’t be afraid to step out of the box and play with texture and color! Like our dress options, our jumpsuits come in an array of casual and dressy styles. From glittering sequins and rich velvets to muted tones and micro pleats, our jumpsuits not only look so good but are just as practical! This one-and-done option is a total timesaver so you can hurry on to what’s really important – family, friends, food (let’s be real– mostly food… just kidding!).
Now that you’ve got tons and tons of options, you can say “Bah, humbug!” no more for you’ve got the fool-proof formula for the most stylish (and coziest!) winter wardrobe.
