7 haute Houston holiday party and NYE dress ideas and where to find them
When it comes to holiday outfits, the motto is usually go big or go home. The more sparkle, feathers, and elevated hemlines, the better. Lucky for us, this year is no different. Holiday parties, dinner and drinks, or watching the ball drop? We've got an outfit for nearly every occasion.
Of course, holiday shopping is one of the best things about the season, but steer clear of one-hit wonders. Investing in wardrobe staple pieces is a savvy shopper's holy grail. Although all of the trends chosen in this edit are holiday-influenced, they are absolutely go-to pieces that can be worn again and again.
We've rounded up several looks from Houston-based designers and the crème de la crème of shopping destinations to inspire your own holiday look.
Sparkle with Sequins
Rock the sequined trend with this gold patterned Kyla Holiday Nights Sequins dress from Milly. Tootsies has several sequined options, but this one is bold and on-trend with its length and colorway.
