What Not to Wear: Holiday Edition

Hello SASsy friends!  Now that Halloween is over and the costumes have been packed away until next year, it's time to focus on the holidays.  This is by far my favorite time of year, but finding the right outfit can be a bit of a challenge.  There's nothing worse than arriving at an event dressed completely wrong.  Follow the suggestions below to have a flawless and fashionable holiday season.

Significant Other's Family Holiday Dinner:
As nerve racking as having dinner with significant other's family is to begin with, you absolutely must have the right outfit.  If you are meeting them for the first time, you want to make the right impression and not become a running joke. So, unless you want the family to think you are a stuck up diva, please avoid outfits like this:

Wearing looks like the ones above will almost guarantee, every woman in the family will have a field day talking about how wrong your outfit was.  This talk will continue for years and years to come.  There's no need to overdo it, try these more conservative looks instead:

Office Holiday Party:
Typically, the office holiday party is a time where you let your hair down and have a good time with your co-workers.  However, this is not the time to let it all hang out or wear that sexy little dress in the back of your closet. Unless you want people talking about you on Monday, and not in a good way, avoid showing up looking like one of Beyonce`s backup dancers:

Both of these dresses are hot, but save them for New Year's Eve, not the office party.  Try these more conservative looks instead:

 Friend's Cocktail Party:
This is when you can go a bit jazzier, but keep in mind this is not a reality show and there are no cameras around so you don't need to over do it.  This look is just simply unnecessary:

Keep it classy with something like this instead:

As the holidays approach, I will have more tips on how to dress for various holiday occasions.  Until next time, have a SASsy week!
