“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…”
The holiday season is truly one of the most joyous and eventful times of the year. With parties galore, you want to make sure your wardrobe is ready for every festive event.
Whether you plan to curl up next to the fire with your family and some delicious spiced cider or you have a black tie holiday soirée to attend, Fairfield County stylist Elizabeth Schmitt has you covered. Check our Elizabeth’s recommendations of “what to wear where”.
Black Tie Gala
There is always that one event on your holiday calendar that calls for a show-stopping gown. For this I recommend David Meister’s sleeveless sweetheart metallic gown in green. Meister adds something special to this classic shape with the color and fabric. I am a big fan of taking something chic and sophisticated and adding a modern and on trend touch. This ensures that your style will look current yet still classic.
Complete this look with a fur stole and your favorite jewels and you will be ready to stand out at your biggest event.

Work Place Party
What to wear to a holiday party for work can always be tricky. You want to look professional and conservative, but you don’t want your look to be a complete bore. To achieve this I recommend playing with this season’s updated plaids and hounds tooth prints. Try Theory’s nikay drop-skirt plaid dress to turn up the volume on a simple plaid print. Add black opaque tights and black suede pumps to pull it all together. There is also the go-to little black dress. Go for Jason Wu’s full-zip combo sheath dress. These looks will have everyone at work remembering you for all of the right reasons!
Don’t forget that you can also spice up a professional look by donning an all black ensemble with statement jewelry and a knockout pair of heels. This way you can let your personal style shine through without sacrificing professionalism.
Family Night In
While we all love the glitz and the glam, there is nothing better than a night at home with your loved ones. Whether you’re curled up on the couch watching a classic Christmas movie or huddled by the fire enjoying holiday cookies and eggnog, a comfortable yet fashionable ensemble is a must. Because hey, regardless of the familiar audience and oh so casual occasion, we still want to look fabulous!

Holiday Cocktail Party
I love Alexis’ Narelle structured python-texture dress for a festive cocktail party. In one dress you hit several fashion points – winter white, texture, and cutouts. Simple yet fun and flirty, this dress is a must for the holiday season!
For the more adventurous fashion lovers, opt for Stella McCartney’s embellished shift dress in rose. This fun cocktail dress is definitely going to be at the top of the most fashionable’s “must haves”.
