#1 | Maxi Holiday Moment

For my ladies who love drama (with their clothes) you will love this black maxi dress! It has a super high slit to show off those gams. These mules will work just as well with jeans and a tee… as they do with a dress! I love how this dress gives you a lot of coverage, even arm coverage, but also has some super sexy details like the slit and deep v neckline. The knot under the bust helps to define the waist and create a beautiful drape and shape. This is a piece you will pull out again and again… and it’s SO affordable.

The sleeves, along with the length of the dress, will also keep you warm on even the coldest days. Be sure to add a long coat like this gorgeous green one for the walk from the car to the venue. I would also consider tights for even more warmth.

#2 | Tights Add Warmth!

If you want to wear a more traditional skirt like this tie waist pencil skirt or a dress, simply add tights to keep your whole body much warmer! When you also add a blazer or jacket over your blouse, that will help too. I tied the top tie of this blouse in the back since the skirt is tied in the front, but you can always wear it in the front too.  You could easily wear this look from the office to the party by switching out the booties from more traditional booties or pumps and then putting on the sparkle booties for night!

#3 | Sport a Sweater

Wearing a sweater like this ribbed burgundy turtleneck will also help keep you warmer. And, you can even layer over the sweater. Leather and faux leather are also VERY warm. This pencil skirt will keep your legs and behind… toasty.
