MODA Holiday Style Guide: Glam Edition
It's that time of year again. The trees on the quad are all lit up, every beverage is peppermint something or other, and there's an extra pep in everyone step as the holidays approach. And that of course means that your iCal is filling up with all kinds of fancy soirees - sorority formals, winter dances, swanky holiday parties. MODA has styled some looks for even the glitziest of evenings.
Eschew traditional holiday trends and opt for a more minimalist approach this year. Clean lines and a monochromatic palette elevate this simple yet sophisticated look. Floaty dresses are perfect for twirling the night away (and enjoying plenty of eggnog and cake!), while strappy heels are on trend this season and provide more support than traditional pumps. This versatile dress is sure to become a staple in your party wardrobe and these gorgeous pumps add the perfect touch of retro class to any get-up.
If there's ever a time to go bold or go home, it's New Year's Eve. Not for the faint of heart, this sequin-and-ruffled number will have all eyes on you. With such an attention-grabbing dress, keep the shoes simple and accessories minimal. Twinkling studs complement the shimmering dress without being overkill. Shimmy the night away in this luxe option paired with basic pumps that will do double duty and carry you to your next big interview.
Pull out all the stops this year with a cherry red gown. Jaws will drop at the sight of the beautiful draping and elegant open back. A swipe of matching lipstick and classic black pumps are all that such a statement-making dress need. Soft chiffon ruffles and a plunging neckline bring the heat in this cranberry number while the scallop detail on these classic pumps adds the perfect subtle touch.
