Get the Look: 75 Holiday Party Dresses

Many of you are probably still in the crush of the holiday rush. But since I celebrate Hanukkah, my present giving season is complete. My husband and I celebrate our anniversary on Christmas Eve -a spur of the moment elopement – so there’s opportunity for one more give and get, but the real buying, and by that I mean the buying for the kids, is complete.

That means it’s time to move on to planning the perfect New Year’s Eve outfit. Or you might have some holiday parties to attend. I’ll likely cozy up at home. But if I were planning a rocking New Year’s Eve, I’d start trying on dresses right now. There’s nothing worse than buying a party ensemble under pressure. After all this research I may just make a buy so I have a pretty party dress on hand.

I may have gone overboard—there are 75 party dress picks here from StyleCarrot partners and other sources. Lots of lace happening this season. There’s a turquoise lace dress by DVF; a cobalt lace dress from J.Crew, and a one-shouldered navy lace number fromReiss. (Princess Kate should totally dare to wear that.) Of course there are plenty of metallics. Metallic gold and gunmetal dresses, as well as jacquard (big trend right now, especially at Tory Burch), and a sprinkling of sequins. Plus capes. Channel Gwyneth and try a dress with a cape. The white one from Pixie Market is darling. 01

What would I wear? If I were a tiny bit younger and going dancing, I think #3 is really cute, though I’d probably opt for #33, the pleated midi by Rebecca Taylor or #47, the gold wrap dress. The stripey sequin Marc dress, #16 is adorable, especially paired with those studded clogs. The green knotted Lanvin silk shift (#25) is more my style these days, if I could afford it, along with #38, the modern minimalist black gabardine from Ssense. (Everything from Ssense is fierce. For a more festive feel but still considering comfort, I like #49, a black embellished chiffon shift by Velvet.

I like to order a whole bunch and then decide.

Get the Look: 20 Leather Moto Jackets

Have you been shopping for fall clothes yet? Like, actually purchased stuff? So far I’ve been pretty much just Pinning and Keeping. I’m thinking of procuring a leather moto jacket, but it’s going to have to be pretty amazing, seeing how they’re so pricey. (There’s no way I’ll be happy with a vegan one.) Here’s some preliminary research of 20 leather biker jackets. It’s not too early; I love the look of pairing moto jackets with shorts (yesterday’s post) and dresses (leather and florals coming soon).

Get the Look: 24 Floral Fashions For Summer

Did Thursday’s 26 Floral Street Style Looks inspire you to mix in a bit of floral lovin’? Even if you’re not ready for a full-on floral dress (and really, who am I to talk), you could try it out with a tank or hey, a thong. I’m thinking a floral iPhone case would work for me. I do love looking at these though, even if I’m not wearing them. So fun. If you love the floral-print shoes (I’m slightly obsessed with the Loeffler Randall pair here, and the Jimmy Choo floral-printed python platform), you can also check out my floral shoe roundup, “Petal Power” in Sunday’s Boston Globe.
