I had so much fun sharing all of the outfits I put together for #MerryMag this week with you! To be a part of such an amazing concept with so many other talented bloggers felt like such an honour. I honestly think this was one of the best collaborations I have done since starting my blog, so I hope you loved the magazine and the four holiday looks as much as I did! I saved the best for last with this fourth look, “A Formal Affair”. Although I was absolutely freezing while taking these pictures outside, this dress had to be shown without a coat. It is such a beautiful dress for a formal holiday occasion, and for under $200! If you haven’t already, click here or the picture above to see #MerryMag for yourself, and read below to get some inspiration on dressing for your own formal affair.
A formal Christmas event is the best excuse to dress to the nines. But “going all out” with your outfit doesn’t mean wearing all of your best jewelry and your biggest ball gown. Sometimes less is more, so allow yourself to shine, and choose one key element that really stands out. A dress like this one by Elle X RW and Co. has so many details like a plunging neckline, textured fabric with metallic silver flecks, and a flouncy hemline. Keep everything else in your outfit simple with plain black panty hose, black pumps and simple accessories, and you will be the belle of the ball in no time.
