Hi everyone,

The holiday season can be a real drain on your wallet. Between travel, events, and buying gifts for your friends and family, there’s usually very little left to spare for yourself. Fear not, though; you can still look fabulous at all your holiday events, and through a series of holiday fashion posts, I’m going to show you how!

To begin, you really don’t need to buy a bunch of new outfits for all of your holiday parties. If you want to spice up your winter party wardrobe, smart accessorizing with key pieces is the ultimate way to do so on a tight budget. You probably already even have the holiday party (and wardrobe) staple: the LBD!


You really can’t go wrong with the right little black dress. With some carefully chosen accessories, you can produce an infinite number of looks, and if there were ever a time of year when you should maximize the potential of your LBD, it’s now.

If you don’t already have one, a great black dress is a wise investment piece and a smart purchase any time of year. Just make sure the length and fit are appropriate for a variety of occasions. From classic to embellished, here are 10 examples of fab LBDs (all $150 or less!) in a range of styles that would be great for any holiday party:


1. Black Spot Velour Dress – Dorothy Perkins, $59
2. Ponte Pleated Bodycon Dress – Topshop, $72
3. Fit and Flare Dress Face by Oasis – House of Fraser, $102


4. Retro Splicing PU Black Shift Dress – Romwe, $66.99
5. Long-sleeve Dress – Mango, $79
6. Embellished Sleeve Shift Dress – Warehouse, $134


7. Black Pu Ponte Mix Dress – River Island, $70
8. Sleevless Skater Dress – Topshop, $72
9. Black Dress – H&M, $12
10. Black Versace Dress – H&M, $126

Which one is your favorite?
