The holidays are, without a doubt, the most beautiful and magical time of year! It seems like wherever you go is lit up and everything sparkles and shines! This year, it seems the style is extra vibrant - like this burgundy velvet dress that's perfect for holiday parties! Velvet has been such a huge trend this season, and for good reason - the rich sheen of velvet has such a warm and luxurious feel in the colder months.

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you'll know how much I love to mix textures and prints. Combining a pair of lace tights and a chunky statement necklace to this solid velvet dress adds some interest and amps up the elegant winter vibe. I added a simple pair of patent black heels and a solid silver clutch to finish off, but not overwhelm, the look.

I think my favorite part of this dress is the back! I love how it's super high neck in the front so it's modest enough to wear to an office party, but has a fun and youthful statement with an open back. However, you'll definitely want to wear a coat, while the velvet is super warm on a cold winter night, this fun cut out makes it SO COLD in the back! I was freezing during this shoot!
