Prettiest holiday dresses of 2018

The holiday season is in full swing! Believe it or not Christmas is less than two weeks away and New Year's Eve is right around the corner! You know what that means … it's time to bust out your best holiday dress, because there are parties to attend and eggnog to drink. And if you haven't noticed already, we've been posting  gift guides this past week in hopes that it helps make your shopping experience for loved ones much smoother. Keep scrolling and you will see my top holiday dress picks that you can wear to church, a NYE party, or any holiday gathering!

I love love love a good little red dress at this time of year! Red is always such a bold choice-it's fun to dial up the drama just a little for the holidays. This is totally the type of dress that can be dressed up with some sky high heels and a pretty little bag for a night at the Nutcracker or a fancy office holiday party or dressed down with flats and a low bun for Christmas dinner with the family. Or pair it with the big bow pumps from this post for an extra festive Sunday best!!

Important note on this dress: it is absolutely stunningly, beautiful, but it is deceivingly not nursing friendly! The gorgeous crossover detailing in the front is sewn shut. I'm taking mine to the tailor today to have it altered into either a hook or button closure so I'm pretty sure it's a very easy fix, but important to know!

Every closet needs a basic, go-to black pump. These are such a pretty and classic option. The drama of the cutout is such a simple and gorgeous detail. Unfortunately, these exact pumps sold out, but this pair is super similar and at UNDER $90 a super affordable option! 

You can never go wrong with a Kate Spade tote! This little tote is such a classic and has nearly perfect reviews! It's utilitarian and timeless and goes with absolutely EVERYTHING! It's the ideal size, it zips closed and has all these great pockets and compartments to keep everything organized! Plus it has the option to be a crossbody-which you guys know I LOVE!

1. Velvet sheath dress –  Velvet is SUCH a holiday classic. The gathered waist is so figure friendly and flattering
2. Velvet midi dress –  The drape, the color, the bow! What's not to love?
3. Jeweled sheath dress – How GORGEOUS is the jeweled collar on this dress? 
4. Coupe midi dress – If an LBD at Christmas is wrong I don't want to be right! The ruffles and semi sheer sleeves are so much fun!
