3 Festive Outfits for this Holiday Season

express blue wrap front volume sleeve velvet mini dress for holiday New Years party

Today I’m partnering with Express to share 3 holiday outfits with tights! I couldn’t believe how many of you asked for this and I guess I know why. I am plagued with the combination of pale winter legs and dark leg hair. Combine that with frigid temps – I guess you need to check out Express’ selection of tights just as badly as I do (well…did, I bought 3 pairs).

If you’re the type who likes to shop in store I have a ring code you can give the cashier to get a discount! The Ring Code (9042) is for $25 Off $100 in-store and online and expires 1/1/2019. Terms and conditions apply, see link here:

This blue velvet dress is a fun color for any holiday party, especially a Hanukkah party! For reference, I’m 5’11” and this dress is short on me so I’ll rewear it with solid black tights. It’s so pretty and has been in and out of stock it’s so popular! I found two similar styles. This one is with a longer hem and made of the velvet material that’s great for the holidays and this one has that cute wrap detail at the front. The metallic makes it a nice New Year’s Eve party dress.

The more sheer you go with tights the more easily they snag so keep that in mind.  I more often wear opaque tights and Express has lots of options! If you’re dressing for a night out and worried about your legs getting cold, I definitely suggest the opaque tights over the sheer ones.

The sock booties are selling out fast because the price is amazing.  Grab them if they have your prize, they look great with wide leg jeans or dresses.  They fit true to size and are very comfortable in the world of heels. I always tell my friends Express is an untapped gem in the world of shoes! EXPRESS HAS SUCH A GOOD SHOE SELECTION!!!!!!

I love the contrast of a cozy sweater with some statement holiday shine. If you wanted to, the sweater can be worn off the shoulder or leave it as a cowl neck. This mini skirt (wearing xs) is a fun statement piece.  It’s comfortable and pairs well with tights.  Similar to the previous outfit, I’m going to use opaque tights the next time I wear this.

The sock booties are a great option for mini skirts and this pair is amazing and affordable!

I love this sweater dress. It’s easy to dress up or down and thick and warm – perfect for cold weather dressing. I’m wearing an xs. The sock booties pairs nicely with this dress too.
