Where am I finding the cutest dresses for Holiday 2018? Modcloth!! I recently had great success with a personal shopping client picking out a few Christmas and Hanukkah holiday party looks at Modcloth. She looked so stunning and the dress options are delightful and plentiful, so after my client was all set I came back to shop for myself!
I’m pleasantly surprised by all the cuteness in the Modcloth Holiday 2018 collection! It has that handmade, unique quality I adore in ultraflattering silhouettes. Their dress section in particular has filled my wishlist up with cute A-line and body-skimming shapes that look great on a diverse set of sizes, skin tones and heights.
Best news of all? Right now during Modcloth’s Black Friday promo you can take 30% off your order of $100+ and 40% off your order of $200+!! This promo even works on sale items. That makes holiday outfitting a much simpler equation, don’t you think?
It’s not easy picking favorites when the choices are so good. In fact I couldn’t pick just one so this post features OOTDs of two Modcloth dresses I love! Firstly, the Duly Dreamy Embroidered A-Line Dress ($139, on me) is everything I want in a holiday dress! The muticolored floral trails lining the dress remind me of Christmas ivy and holly. The sheer sleeves give me that conservative coverage I’d need for family events or church, while the length is ideal for my height. The dress is lined on the entire bodice. Doesn’t it look so festive on??
Here are some more angles of this beauty, which also comes in white…
I’m wearing a large in the Duly Dreamy Embroidered A-Line Dress ($139). It comes in sizes ranging from XS to 4X! I love how body diverse Modcloth is. And let me tell you that the quality on this dress is excellent. I’m impressed by how well each flower is sewn on, how the pattern matches up well on the side seam and how the waist nips inward perfectly.
When it came to picking coordinating items for the dress, both the Posh the Limits Wool Cape ($139) and Attention to Excellence Velvet Heel ($79) jumped out at me. The cape comes with a beautiful sash that is a perfect accent on the dress! Or it can be worn as a neck tie a la the product page. The cape itself drapes beautifully. The arm slits create a beautiful silhouette that isn’t too voluminous. For these photos I’m in a UK 14 (US 10).
Finally for this first outfit, although the Attention to Excellence Velvet Heels ($79) are ostensibly mustard, the color reads as a beautiful gold on! These heels are made by Chelsea Crew — a brand I love for its quality, comfort and affordability. I’m happy to report that in my usual size 9/40 these are soft, comfortable out of the box and ready to wear all day or night long. They come in a burgundy and grey too. With such success from these heels I’m ready to buy these Chelsea Crew booties and these double-strapped mary janes too!
This outfit makes me so happy because I feel like I’m in such a classic outfit! The Modcloth Holiday 2018 collection has so many classic festive dresses to choose from! Below, some of my favorites.
But what if your holiday festivities are more party-centric? What if you literally need a dress to party all night, as I do? Luckily the Modcloth Holiday 2018 collection has you covered in this scenario too!
Again I found myself in pure delight over all of the options! Many of my party picks at Modcloth come from Chi Chi London, a brand that clearly knows how to arrive at a fête! Some of the dresses I considered for my first up all night holiday event included the Own the Moment Midi Dress ($119), the Admired Stylista Fit and Flare Dress ($149), the Exquisite Elegance Lace Dress in Navy ($175 — omg the two tone amazingness!!) and the Gilded Grace Lace Dress ($175). Stay tuned as some of these dresses are sure to make an appearance soon.
In the end, for the particular event I was attending, I selected the Uplifting Aura Off-Shoulder Dress ($119, on me). This dress has an appealingly trendy 90s vibe to it without being specifically “Christmas” or “Hanukkah” (or “Kwanzaa”!) to it. The velvet top feels incredibly luxe and can be worn on or off-shoulder while the starred skirt portion feels so celebratory!
You’ll note those same lovely mary janes from my first outfit are back in action here. Except that is for my scooter ride when I switched to darker tights and boots! The red scooter illustrates that the cape from my first outfit would work well here too. For this particular event, I chose a faux fur coat instead for additional warmth on an especially chilly eve. Modcloth’s coat selection will complete your outfit no matter which dress you choose!
By dawn my dress still looked fresh as ever! So we headed down to a Brooklyn Bridge overlook for some final snaps.
This dress was everything a (holiday) party girl could want! I am now angling for some more holiday party invites so I can try some of my other favorite picks out.
Whether you’re doing a small family gathering, a night at church and then an evening at home, or a party out with friends, make sure you don’t buy your holiday outfit without taking a look through the Modcloth Holiday 2018 collection first!
And if you’re looking for gifts, the Modcloth Holiday 2018 collection has you covered there too! I absolutely adore the Bud, Of Course Mini Vase Set ($30, above). I like it so much I got two…one to gift, one to keep. I highly recommend paging through Modcloth’s cute Holiday Gift Guide.
Below, more Modcloth holiday delights sure to please. Have you shopped Modcloth recently? Don’t forget about their Black Friday promo going on now through Sunday where you can save up to 30% off your purchase! What are your favorites from this post?
