Engagement Party

Fall and winter isn’t all family gatherings and fair isle sweaters, this season comes with a few great reasons to party, too. One of my favorites being the engagement of good friends. To celebrate something as joyful and timeless as…you know, love, I’ve chosen a dress that embodies these things, too.

The Cecilia Sheath Dress by Lover is a lace-overlay wonder that, in all honesty, is best accessorized with a glass of champagne.  But seriously, this midi-length, high collared style is essential celebration attire (as is this similar frock or this similar beauty).  The bare leg move is of course an option—feel free to play around with hosiery as temperatures drop.

I love the navy/black combo, but don’t be afraid to be colorful at an engagement party.  The rainbow is your oyster, as long as you steer clear (completely) of anything white, ivory, or the like.  

A word on lace: aside from being a fabric that practically accessorizes itself, lace, particularly when beautifully structured like this, is zero-effort elegant.  Below, I’ve rounded up a few other KILLER lace dresses perfect for engagement parties or any dressy event this season may throw your way.
