I love long black dresses for holiday parties but I think it's important to spice it up with some print so it doesn't look like you're going to a funereal.
I always think a touch of sheer is incredibly sexy and with the right slip and a long maxi length it keeps everything covered and classy.
Below are some gorgeous sheer maxi dresses all under $70
It's important the dress slip be both practical and comfortable. I linked two below that are buttery soft and come in 8 different hues. I personal own multiple ones! Add a corset belt to help cinch the waist and create a feminine silhouette.
To help break up the all black silhouette I paired the look with jewel toned statement earrings and heels with a little embellishment. The red earrings I am wearing are linked below and come in a few different colors.
Leopard is bold but since it's neutral colors it's easy to pair with. Plus, you won't have to worry about the coat check loosing it since it will stand out.
My particular coat is from TART Collections. I'm wearing a size Small. It's incredibly warm, lined and has pockets! You can shop it by clicking here.
