Holiday Party Looks ft. The Black Tux

With the holidays and New Year's right around the corner, I tend to overwhelm myself with the endless wardrobe possibilites for a certain party. I overthink an outfit. I procrastinate. I breakdown. And sometimes, I don't feel like going out simply because my outfit sucks. 

Luckily, I've learned to draw my inspiration early and plan outfits out for parties that haven't even been planned yet. 

The Black Tux has released an amazing Holiday Style Guide that gave me a boost of inspiration for my own party looks.

Casual parties are my favorite. Whether it's a family dinner or a get together at a friend's house, you can't go wrong with a simple dress and knee high boots. Top it off with a statement coat or bag and you're ready to go!

Sometimes, there are parties where a cozy sweater just isn't going to cut it. For a more professional occasion, I opt for a LBD -- simple and super easy to style. I make sure to have at least 2 little black dresses in my wardrobe, just in case!

Formal occasions are my weak spot. For some reason, I feel the need to buy a new dress every time! If you plan on purchasing a new gown for your event, make sure to give yourself enough time to shop for the perfect dress. Do not procrastinate! 

For this formal occasion, I chose to style my model in a silky dress with a delicate pattern. I love the silky fabric and you can choose to accessorize however you wish! She chose to pair her dress with sparkly heels and a clutch in a solid color.


On Her - Dress: Irene's Story | Shoes: Jimmy Choo | Clutch: Louis Vuitton | Bangle: Banana Republic | Necklace & Earrings: Chanel

For Him - If you choose to bring a date along, a tux will do for this formal occasion. The Black Tux offers tuxedo rentals for a reasonable price! They also offer a wide selection so that you and your date can match perfectly!
