The Christmas season is here and it is time to show your sparkle! Why not shine just as bright as the Christmas lights twinkling in the tree this year with a great holiday Christmas dress! Whether you’re into subtle sparkle or glamorous glitter, we’ve got you covered with our top tips on dressing for the holiday season.

Holiday parties are a time to wear your cute Christmas outfits, do your best makeup, and most importantly, have fun. There are so many cute Christmas dresses in store, it’s hard to know what to choose to flatter your body and make you look your best. Party wear is one area that some women tend to shy away from because they feel uncomfortable in the style they choose.

We here at Agein are here to help you get your perfect holiday look while keeping you feeling comfortable and chic. The first step is to go out to the stores and start looking for cute Christmas dresses. Start looking early in the season to avoid feeling rushed and perhaps missing out on the best styles.

Women’s Christmas outfits can be an uncomfortable subject for some, but with our tips on how to get your perfect cute Christmas dress, we will have you feeling fabulous at your next holiday party. The main rule to remember is to make sure you are comfortable in any style you choose. If you love going with the latest trends, yet feel an off shoulder dress is not your style, then skip the trend this season and go for a more classic look. Cold shoulder dresses are not for everyone, and we suggest only wearing this style if you have nicely toned arms. Usually featuring a slim fitting sleeve, these dresses tend to focus attention on the arms and shoulders, so make sure this is a place you would like highlighted if going for this type of style.

Stylish and Comfortable

Holiday cocktail dresses are perhaps the most flattering for all body types as they come in so many different styles. Think about your everyday clothes and what makes you comfortable when you wear those. Are they loose fitting, tight, or are they a specific color that makes you happy? Once you have that figured out, try applying it to your evening dress. If you generally like loose fitting clothes, try a chiffon flyaway style dress—or if you tend to gravitate towards darker colors, get a little black cocktail dress that you will be able to wear multiple times. The main goal is selecting something that makes you feel chic and confident while still being comfortable.

Christmas party dresses can be tricky if you are the host and need to be running around all night while still looking flawless in an evening gown. For an easy-yet-chic look that will keep you covered while being a hostess, look to a sparkling maxi dress. This look will help keep any wardrobe malfunctions to a minimum while serving your guests.

Once you’ve figured out your preferred style of evening dress, think about glitzing it up a notch by adding some sparkle. This is the area where you can stray outside of your comfort zone by adding something to your Christmas ensemble to really make it shine. Try a metallic clutch that will add some shine to a basic black cocktail dress, or perhaps trade your regular heels for some sparkly strappy sandals. Accessories are a great way to come out of your comfort zone and try different looks. This holiday season, add a little sparkle to your style and look fabulous at your next Christmas party!
