As your calendars fill with more and more festive holiday activities, it can be a bit nerve wracking to consider how to make your current wardrobe stretch to accommodate all these upcoming events while still looking great and turning heads. Vlisco, the world’s number one African print manufacturer, is here to save the day and show you how just a few simple additions to your closet this season will make you the belle of every holiday ball!
WHAT TO WEAR
Office Party – Ditch your suit jacket and slacks this holiday and opt for a look that will truly dazzle your co-workers at the office Christmas party this year! Keep in mind that this is not the time to go over the top, but a simple, classic silhouette, such as this long-sleeved cocktail dress, is a perfect way to balance a basic staple piece with a bit of excitement thrown in by mixing two fabrics with the same pattern but different colors. Another option would be this dress and jacket pairing. The waist belt cinches you in just the right spot to create the perfect shape and the pieces can be easily mixed and matched in other outfits throughout the year.
Church Service– This is the season for abundant church celebration and even more church functions. Make sure to look your best this year in a beautiful dress made from the finest Limited-edition Super Wax fabrics, adding a touch of shimmer to this elegant dress with exaggerated sleeves. The asymmetrical hemline makes it stand out so that you’re sure to be noticed when wearing it. We also love this stunning long sleeved dress that expertly pairs two floral prints together for a sweet but sophisticated look, perfect for any church function this holiday season.
Family Get-Together– For the more casual affair, we recommend opting for this jacket combined with jeans or shorts as a perfect everyday option for barbecues or get-togethers at home with the people you love most. The overall look is uncomplicated, but the colors and patterns within the fabric make it chic and stylish. If you’re looking to bump your look up a notch, consider this stunning wrap maxi dress for your next family event. Wrap dresses are universally flattering for all shapes and sizes because of their ability to create or emphasize a well-defined waist and the fullness of the skirt and asymmetric hem give this classically casual look an elegant upgrade.
Evening Gala – Some of the biggest events happen around Christmas and you don’t want to find yourself unprepared with nothing to wear if you get that last-minute invite! For a look that is sure to truly wow the crowd, go for this dramatic high-low hem dress playing with two different prints in the dress’s train. Paired with red strappy heels and a bold statement necklace, you’re totally red carpet ready. Another fabulous choice is this ensemble that plays on proportion with puffed long sleeves and a gorgeous long wrap skirt. This look is sure to provoke a positive response from everyone at the party; it’s a great way to really push the style boundaries and make sure you’re on the best dressed list this season!
