I found the most perfect dress for a black tie holiday party and couldn’t wait to share it with you. This black velvet gown is stunning and the shape flatters every body type. If you have a holiday party this season that is black tie or formal attire this would an amazing dress choice!
A velvet dress is a classic choice for a holiday party; it’s elegant and perfect for the colder weather. This dress is this year’s version of the one they made last year which you all loved (see last year’s formal dress post). They’ve kept the same stunning off the shoulder shape and quality velvet fabric, but this year they’ve added one of the biggest trends – feathers! I saw a ton of feathers at NYFW this year and have been waiting for pieces to come out featuring feathers. I scooped up this dress as soon as I saw it!
The other nice thing about this dress is that it comes in regular and petite, and also in plus size. I found the fit to be pretty true to size. I’m wearing my usual size 6.
I wanted to keep the dress the focus of this outfit, so I went with simple accessories – gold strappy heels (that are comfortable!) and my grandmother’s Chanel handbag. I love the elegance of this dress all on it’s own, so a comfortable shoe and a handbag are really all you need!
