I have decided that burgundy is the official color of the holidays this year. I love the color red, however sometimes I feel it just doesn’t go well with my complexion, which is why I’ve turned to my Lulu’s long sleeve burgundy dress for my holiday parties.
Burgundy is a Christmas-y, if you will, color and perfect for Christmas parties or New Year’s Eve. The reason I really like this one is because of the long sleeves. It covers you up just enough to be appropriate for those cold winter walks to the cab as well as for drinking champs around your boss.
This one above is also very appropriate, around your family even as well, because it is a very shallow cut at the chest. You don’t need to worry about feeling awkward in it around anyone! Well this one is my favorite but obviously I found a bunch more just for you guys! Do you think i’d really force you to just go with the one I wanted. On this new website I just typed in burgundy dress and they gave me options from across the board. They had dresses from Lulu’s, Rue 21, Akira, Free People, Nordstrom, Nasty Gal, White House Black Market, and so many more.
As you can see I found a ton of various styles and looks from sleeves, sleeveless, A-line, body-con, long, short… basically any style dress you’d want.
When it comes to dressing appropriately for the occasion, always consider the people that you will be with. A great rule of thumb that I like to follow is to show either your legs or your shoulders, but not both. So, if you wear a short dress that shows off a little leg, stick with something with sleeves- doesn’t even have to be long sleeves. You could also wear a jacket over. If you’re going for something that shows less leg, whether it’s a longer dress, super flowly- not skin tight, etc, then you are probably going to be ok showing off your shoulders. Just think about who you’re going to be wearing it with, what kinds of activities you’re going to be doing, and see if you think it would be ok. Use your best judgement. If you’re going to be getting up and down on stage, a short dress is probably not the best option because there will be people sitting below you.. if you see what I’m getting at.
So basically when it comes to style, rock whichever works, but when it comes to color.. stick with the burgundy! It’s a safe bet that’s guaranteed to make you stand out.
