CHRISTMAS PARTY OOTN

When it comes to dressing up for parties I prefer to keep it quite simple and classy. So even wearing red is pushing the boat out for me.But of course since it is Christmas I had to make some sort of effort to fit into the festivity.

I understand that this dress will in no way be for everybody and there's no way in the world I would tell anybody to wear this if they didn't feel comfortable. However, on myself I do feel it is flattering. I feel the low v-cut and thin straps suit me as I can easily get away without wearing a bra. I also love the fact the dress is longer and comes just below the knee after ruffling the skirt up a little bit. Being a 'thicker' girl I prefer to hide the very tops of my legs but I tend to opt out of wearing tights to any parties, so a longer skirt is perfect. I also feel that a longer skirt keeps the look much 'classier', especially when the top half is quite revealing. However, I also love a shorter skirt as much as the next girl and I am in no way saying that a short skirt isn't 'classy', of course a shorter skirt can look equally as nice.

Although you can't see in the photos, I paired this dress with a pair or (low-ish) red, chunky heels. In terms of makeup I would probably go for a gold smokey eye (because it's Christmas) with a cat-flick and some crazy lashes. I would also definitely wear a red lip. To stop myself from going overboard on the red I would paint my nails a pail pink colour, basically the same as my nails look in the photos.

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you're planning on going to any Christmas/New Years parties I hope you have the most amazing time.
