Sometimes there is just nothing that makes you feel better than a really great LBD. They aren’t even easy to find if you ask me. It’s not like you can just pop into the store and grab one. For the office holiday party no less, you want to make sure you look polished and sophisticated. That’s why this stunning Kimberly Gal Meets Glam Collection little black dress is the answer!
I remember going to holiday work parties at Alternative Apparel and it was always nice to see everyone dressed up. Our office style was super casual so it was really the one time we saw everyone all dolled up. I always relied on a classic little black dress. It’s a safe bet, can last you years, and is always flattering. This particular Gal Meets Glam Collection dress was calling my name the second I saw it. Actually, THIS dress was literally calling my name. The Jessica dress was a close second and if I didn’t already own this pretty navy one-shouldered bow dress, I 100% would’ve gone with the Jessica dress. But, since I already have that pretty piece in my closet, I decided to go with something black. Because you can’t ever go wrong with it!
The lace skirt is slightly full and textured making it super fun to twirl in. Many of the Gal Meets Glam Collection holiday party dresses are a midi length and although I like a midi length, I definitely prefer a mini. I have short legs and always prefer to show them off when I can. I loved that this holiday style dress was a bit shorter than her usual midis! This dress also has a unique square neckline. It’s such a fun shape and feels super different than anything else in my closet.
All this pretty little black dress needed were classic black pumps, a swipe of red lipstick in my go-to Beautycounter Girls’ Night red, earrings and a fun clutch. I’m already planning on wearing this to my friend’s wedding in January. I’ll probably top it with my faux fur jacket to stay warm while I wait for my Uber!

What To Wear To An Office Holiday Party
When dressing for your office holiday parties this season you still want to look professional and put together. This is no time to wear a sexy little number that belongs to being worn at a Vegas club. You still want to be tasteful and keep your office dress codes in mind. If you’re a super casual office, you can probably get away with something not AS fancy. But if you work in a very conservative office with a strict dress code, be sure to throw on a classic black dress that always looks great and is appropriate. Here are a few ideas on how to find what to wear to an office holiday party.
Plus one of my favorite tips is to just head into your closet and spruce something up that you have. You don’t need a full head to toe new outfit. You can grab a new piece like a sequined top, festive blazer or a statement earring and clutch to transform a look easily and on a budget.
Sequins or Velvet
Something that’s super fun about finding a holiday party outfit is getting to try fabrics and embellishments you don’t normally wear. Insert sequins or velvet! These fabrics are a luxe way to get dressed up for a party. You can pair a velvet top with a black pencil skirt, or a sequined tank under a sleek blazer. It’s such a simple way to dress up your outfit without having to go ALL out too.
Have a few little black dresses alraedy but the office may have alraedy seen them? No problem! Just add a fun festive blazer to your favorite LBD for an instant update. No one will know that it’s the dress you wore during that meeting last week. With a swipe of red lipstick and a pretty clutch, it’ll look and feel brand new.
When in doubt, just add holiday hues! It’s an EASY way to feel festive. Grab a red dress or a red pump to make it feel really festive and pop. And lastly, you can always add a tartan clutch, or bright red earring to really feel festive for your next office holiday party.
