I’m going to go ahead and start with a spoiler alert: literally everything I’m wearing is 50% off this weekend—the dress, necklace, belt, booties and tights. Boom.
I wore this black and gold ensemble when we had friends over for drinks last week before leaving for Thanksgiving. While ideally we’d all have a perfect holiday dress for every occasion between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, that’s not always practical. Today I thought I’d share my favorite way to spice up the classic staples that are in your closet, like this perfect fit-and-flare black knit dress.
First off, let me say that if you don’t have a long-sleeve LBD like this in your closet, you should probably correct that asap (especially while this one is 50% off, i.e. $44!). Not only can it be jazzed up with accessories for the holidays, but it will also be a staple piece that you can wear to anything and everything all season long. Since it’s a knit, the dress proved to be the most comfortable thing to wear as I was getting drinks and hors d’oeuvres ready for guests. It also comes in a red version as well as a green version if you’re looking for a staple piece with a bit of color.
The best way to dress up your favorite wardrobe staples for the holidays is with festive accessories. By adding this layered gold statement necklace and black and gold braided belt, the black dress feels fully ready for the holiday season.
