We've all heard that there are no rules in fashion. This is true when it comes to certain styles. Wearing white after Labor Day is debatable. What about holiday dresses? Well, whoever told you holiday dresses are to wear only during holidays missed the mark.
When it comes to holiday dresses, there shouldn't be any rule as to wearing them post-holiday. A red hot dress for Christmas? A pleated tweed dress at Thanksgiving? A sparkling dress on New Years Eve? They all can be worn post-holiday. Here are holiday dresses you can wear post-holiday.
- Cap Sleeve Dress: A wedding, graduation, dinner party, on vacation.
- Sweater Dress: Night on the town with the girls or on date night with your significant other.
- Shift Dress: Wedding, bridal shower, work, even church.
- Sparkling Sequin Dress: Night out on the town, birthday or to Vegas!
- High Neck Dress/Lace Dress: Date night or abroad.
The thing about breaking any ‘rule’ is to know when it’s appropriate to do so. As it pertains to fashion, you have to know when and in what seasons to wear particular fabrics. Every fabric should not be worn in every season. This is easier to get away with when it comes to shoes rather than clothing.
Colors play a part in this, too. While dark hues are not often seen in the summer time, it’s not impermissible, either. Don't be afraid to wear bright colors in winter and dark colors in spring. Just be mindful to do it the right way.
