It is starting to officially feel like the holidays. With a bit of a nip in the air and Thanksgiving practically knocking on the door, I’m beginning to feel the spirit.
With the holidays comes a plethora of occasions to rationalize adding a new dress or two to your wardrobe.Though the fabulous feeling of attending a party with friends and loved ones looking absolutely smashing in a new dress is always reason enough for me!!
I adore all the dresses above with the Camila & Marc crepe dress a particular favorite for a more formal (cocktailish) affair. And, if it’s pants you fancy, Isa Arfen’s bow embellished wool and silk blend top paired with her high-waisted slim pants is a chic, modern alternative. Hense, the option of adding one or two to the closet.

I’ve always wanted to learn to surf. Riding a huge crest of a wave seems so freeing (albeit damn hard). Yet, I could never wrap my head around the idea of wearing a damp and cold wet suit. Ever since I been wearing Zara’s white neoprene flared skirt, I’ve been obsessed with the fabric. And, this season designers are riding high on this trend’s waves – it is everywhere.
My new fixation is on Josh Goot’s delicious bubblegum scuba skirt. The color is magnificent, and I love the cut out look, or known as high/low, a trend I doubt I will ever tire of. The cut, color and fabric lend the skirt a fresh and modern feel. Pair it with Zara’s floral neoprene sweatshirt top for a romantic yet cool vibe!
Neoprene dresses are a great way to have some fun with your style this holiday season! You can’t go wrong in MSGM’s sleek basic black dress with an embellished neckline, or Cynthia Rowley’s iridescent multi-colored scuba dress – love this color and sheen!!
Wanting a more chill and relaxed feel? Look no further than Kenzo’s embroidered neoprene lotus eye sweater – the perfect piece to wear with leggings or jeans. It also looks smashing when paired with Clover Canyon’s Russian Enamel pencil skirt (which is also fab with a basic black crew neck sweater).
The neoprene possibilities are endless!!

What makes the perfect Holiday dress? It’s a dress that’s suitable for the many cocktail parties, dinners and office fetes that await you. What it shouldn’t be is a dress that gets tucked away in your closet, only to be pulled out at the same time every year for the holidays.
The Little Black Dress fits the bill to a tee. They can rock your holiday parties and dinners while being a go to dress in the future. And every designer has one in their collection, so finding the one that “speaks to you” should be a cinch. We’ve curated a selection of dresses with varying price points so they can easily fit into your holiday budget. We particularly fancy the knitted macrame dress from Top Shop and the hi-lo kimono sleeve dress from ASOS.
Looking chic this holiday is easy as the LBD.
