I find festive season dressing tricky. It is the only time of the year I feel like wearing something out of my comfort zone. A festive season dress needs to be a little brighter, a little sparklier or just a bit more “wow” than usual.
So before I pack for my holidays and discover I have nothing to wear, I decided to put together some options for the ideal festive season dress (or dresses). This way I can plan ahead and be ready to look festively perfect.
If you’re like me, you don’t wear red often. But for this time of year I make an exception. Red is such a happy, festive colour. Besides, a lot of the holiday-decor is red, so you’ll look perfectly coordinated! Here are a few options, some casual, others a little more dressy.
1. Isabel De Villiers Boxy Dress, Red (also available in black), R1,600.00 – R1,999.00 BUY
2. Danielle Frylinck Londyn Dress, Red, R890.00 BUY
3. Isabel De Villiers Fit & Flare Dress, Red (also available in grey), R1,200.00 – R1,500.00 BUY
