A Twist on the Holiday LBD

Sequins and beading, rich reds, silver and gold:  Some things just scream ‘holiday dressing.”  I actually love going all in on party looks, but not every occasion calls for full-on holiday glam.  Sometimes you want to look festive without looking like you got your color palette from the tree trimming aisle, but that doesn’t mean you want to blend in a forgettable black dress.  My recommendation: Combine a little shimmer, fun details, and pops of non-traditional color to walk the fine line with aplomb.

I love the glimmer on this Catherine’s midi – the shiny fabric is as soft as a regular jersey, and feels just as good on the skin (no scratchy material here!)  The asymmetrical hemline and cutout is right on trend (bonus points: the cutout is bra friendly!)  I got low key disco vibes when I first put this dress on, so I decided to accessorize with a pyramid clutch and my favorite neon mules.  The combination of sparkly sky blue and neon yellow is definitely not a traditional holiday palette, but I love the idea of adding an unexpected touch or two.

This LBD is also super versatile, and can easily go from festive to more laid back.  I ended up taking it from a holiday-centric lunch date to the  Prive Reveaux launch with the addition of my trusty All 67 leather moto and a monochrome bag.

I ordered this dress in 0X (sizing down one like I usually do with Catherines) and the fit was generally spot-on (just a smidge snug through the bust).  If this is your first time ordering from Catherines, I suggest sizing down one from your typical number size in dresses.
