Hello Friends!! This week seems to be FLYING BY! I am getting ready to leave for NYC tomorrow morning and can’t wait for a girls weekend in the Big Apple! I wanted to share a holiday party outfit idea with you before I leave. I think you guys will really like this one! Can you say navy velvet + leopard print faux fur?! This combo is perfect for your husband’s company Christmas party, a winter wedding or for a New Year’s Eve get together.
The part of this look that you need to buy immediately is the navy velvet dress. It’s from Lilla P and is incredibly flattering. It has interesting seams that add to the perfect shift shape and a v-neckline that really brings it together. Honestly, I was shocked at how much I love the fit when I first tried it on! As a reference, I’m 5’5 and I think the length is perfect. I’m wearing XS. It also comes in rose and black as additional color options.
Right now, Lilla P is offering an exclusive 25% off to my readers between now and December 11th. All you have to do is use the code LOVERLYGREY25 at checkout (excludes new arrivals). So you can get this perfect holiday dress for under $130!
I wanted to pair the velvet dress with something fun that would make you stand out this holiday season. You will want to wear a coat of some type over the dress as you are traveling to and from your event. I added this oversized, leopard faux-fur coat as a statement piece for your holiday look. I think pairing velvet with a standout pattern is a great way to add a little spunk to your look! This coat is under $50 and runs true to size!
Another thing I love about this dress is that it can be worn a few other ways. You can add a white button down blouse under it for an office look. I would add a skinny belt and heels to top it off. If you need to justify spending over $100 on a holiday dress, just know that it can be worn several ways – think work and play!
I hope you love this dress as much as I do! Thank you for stopping by Loverly Grey today.
Thank you to Lilla P for sponsoring today’s blog post. As always, all opinions are my own.
