Often times, there are a few formal gatherings that a girl must attend during the holiday season.

Color coordination never goes out of style.  This outfit  includes a metallic princess-cut dress, navy heels and a matching clutch.  If you are wearing a solid colored dress and don't know what to wear with it, the simple choice is to find items in the same color.  When doing your makeup, try to stick to a color scheme, for example, the makeup in this set is a berry shade, but don't go to extremes or try over the top styles.

This dress is comfortable, while still great for a formal event with the lace and metallic details.  The shoes and clutch are in a lighter, more silvery shade of lavender.

Give your holiday outfit a sweet vintage look!  To get the look, wear a vintage or vintage-style dress with pumps or ballet flats, a clutch, and if you feel the need, a cardigan or a matching red lip.  If you really want to look like a blast from the past, try pin curls the night before, so you can have overnight curls.
