Fast fashion and
plus-size trendy dresses under $100 put
curvy holiday fashion into everyone's budget.
The holidays are the time for
velvet and lace, metallic shimmer and
shine, beads and sequins.
Rich red is an annual favorite, joined
classic black and smooth
winter floral patterns are joining the
mix in a cool color palette. Menswear
patterns such as plaids and houndstooth checks
are fashioned into feminine silhouettes for a
fresh fashion forward look.
Texture and tone-on-tone subtle pattern is
important this year playing out in burnout
velvets, lace insets, and metallic jacquard
fabrics. Many fabrics normally reserved
cocktail dresses are appropriate for
daytime and more casual wear this year, making
it easy to go from day to evening, as needed,
this year's party season.
Body conscious sheath dresses that require
shapewear underneath are popular curve
hugging styles. Hemlines have dropped to
fall at or just past the knee in a midi length.
Equally curve enhancing are the fit-and-flare
silhouettes create hourglass silhouettes.
Necklines are high with added visual interest
from jewel embellishments, cut outs, and
illusion fabric insets.
