What to Wear: Winter Parties

Dressing for parties during the cold Canadian winter is always a bit of a headache. Does this dress come in long-sleeve? Should I wear tights under this? Can I wear boots with this dress?

Well, don’t fret, we’ve got you covered with these winter party outfit ideas! 

The New LDB

The LBD gets a sultry upgrade with head to toe lace that puts a fun spin on the traditional black garment. Wear a seasonal bodysuit underneath, perhaps gold or silver, or for a fun trick of the eye, a flesh-coloured version.

Pair it with high pumps and dangling gold earrings for a look that leaves you looking like the winter goddess you are.

Oversized Sweater and Leather Leggings

You can be cozy AND chic at your next party. Slide an oversized cream coloured cableknit off one shoulder for a peekaboo effect, while skin tight leather leggings balance the casual vibe of the sweater to keep the ensemble sophisticated.

Complete the winter look with heeled boots like these Suede Knee-high Boots!

Red Tank and Checked Pants

Wear your checkered work trousers outside the office! Paired with a strappy red cropped tank and you’ve created a seasonal outfit perfect for this evening. Bare shoulders show some skin and plaid pants add a whimsical look.

Heeled boots—in matching red—complete the ensemble, while bangle bracelets and a gold necklace make for great accessories. Leave your hair messy in a tousled bob or relaxed waves. 

Midi Silk Dress

If you RSVP’ed to an upscale party, abide by the dress code and shop resale designer clothing.

A formal dress, like this pre-loved Frascara midi silk dress, is an elegant piece perfect for winter weddings & engagement parties. Details like silk pleats add flair that combined with an upper black and white lace fitted bodice fits snugly to the wearer’s shape. If you’re worried about cold shoulders, it comes with a shawl to cover you from any chill you might feel.

Lace Top with Trousers

Let your top do the talking. A long-sleeve lace shirt turns heads and adds flavour. Accentuate the statement piece via a monochramatic look that includes a black bandeau bra, black cropped trousers, and heeled booties.

Start 2020 with a cosmopolitan entrance!
