Sequin dress for the holidays

I love a sequin dress, specially when the Holidays are here and a sequin dress can be a must-have for this season! Christmas and New Year’s Eve are just around the corner and to celebrate the holidays’ season in style, nothing better than a stunning sequin dress, right?

So thinking about all the parties for this season, one of the dresses I’ve picked is this stunning champagne and rose gold sequin dress, it’s a short dress and I’m loving it:

This dress is in champagne and it has sequins in rose gold, if you’ve been following me here or on Instagram (if not, just click @manuluize and follow me ;) ), you already know I’m loving everything rose gold, so I just fell in love when I saw this gorgeous dress. And that is perfect for the parties!

Being a short dress, I find it so versatile that you can wear to many different kind of parties where you need a beautiful short dress and with one like this, you’re ready to shine.

This dress is from a limited collection designed by Stephanie Pratt for Goddiva, the celebrity got famous for The Hills on the American television and she has been collaborating with the brand and I’m really enjoying this collection that is full of sequin dresses and jumpsuits, aka, perfect for this season!

 

While I stopped to photograph my outfit, this cute dog at a friend’s house wanted to pose for the photos with me, isn’t she lovely?

And here are some details of my look, accessories also in rose gold to match my sequin dress and a party makeup with a red lipstick (that I love):

Like Coco Chanel said: “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous” and we can think of the French style like this, it’s classy and it’s fabulous, even when you’re in a more casual and dress down kind of look. You can be fabulous from morning to night.

Red dress outfit (StyleWe Review)

A red dress is that kind of dress that every woman should have in her wardrobe, and when in doubt, just start with the classics or basic pieces.

And this red dress is exactly that, it’s such a versatile dress that can be worn for spring or even for the fall/winter season!

• Red dress outfit:

A simple short red dress that can match different moods and styles. As you all probably know by now, I love high heels and this is the kind of shoes that I usually choose to pair with my outfits and dresses and so was the case here.

• GET MY OUTFIT:

 

It’s a red dress with a minimal approach (that I love!), so I thought it was a perfect classic choice to be part of my closet.

Red dress - Stylewe Review

You can wear it with a bigger bag like I did for the daily life outfits or you can pair it with a smaller handbag or even a clutch for a more dress up/night out kind of outfit.

I think I already wrote here on the blog how I’ve been a bit obsessed with red clothing lately, specially red dresses, I’m in such a red vibe these days! And do you know why? Because red is such a color-trend for this year! So if you doubt, go with the red!

As for the quality of the dress and a Stylewe review, that’s from where this dress is from, fabric and quality are nice and the prices are always affordable with some interesting variety of dresses and clothing in general.

 

And since I was in an all classy mood, I just decided to go with a pair of black high heels, some golden accessories like a choker, earrings and a delicate flower ring.

Velvet Dress for the Holidays (Stylewe review)

The holiday season is here! Glam outfits for who loves a glam season and I’m definitely one of them.

And here’s another holiday-season outfit to inspire you, a beautiful dress in black velvet that’s so elegant for the most festive time of the year.

Dress: StyleWe | Belt: Rafaela Mantovani

This dress makes me feel so elegant, in black velvet and with a boat neck, the dress is classy and sophisticated for the holiday season.

But to make it even more festive, I paired this black dress with golden accessories, like a golden pair of shoes and golden jewelry.

Black Velvet Dress

Golden shoes

Since winter it is, wear a big and warm coat over it to keep you warm. Instead of going for the most obvious choice of a black coat, I decided to go to a off white coat, that, by the way, is a very long coat and I love it for the colder days.

Velvet black dress

Because every one who loves a glam outfit should have a little black dress that’s elegant, classy and should I dare to say, fancy. Because you can also look gorgeous even when you go for more affordable brands and I love to mix them to create my outfits. This velvet dress is from a website called Stylewe and I’ve been finding many lovely pieces over there.

This dress is great to value the body’s silhouette, specially if you wear it with a belt in a high waited way.

Party outfit for Holidays' season

For the hair, I decided to go for a braid hairstyle that’s also very elegant:

Holiday Outfit: Red dress (Stylewe review)

Christmas is just around the corner, so we are officially on Holiday season! And if you think a red dress is a cliche as a Christmas’ outfit, wait until you see this red dress.

Dress: Stylewe | Lipstick: Ruby Woo by MAC

It could be that I’ve been on a “red mood”, but at this moment I’ve been loving red pieces, like red dresses or red coats, I’ve been obsessed with red clothing lately (specially dresses). So it was no surprise to myself that when I was choosing some outfits for the Christmas season, I’ve picked a red dress.

Perfect for the parties this season or, let’s face it, in other parties all year around, it’s a red dress elegant enough for a dinner, going out or end of the year Holiday parties.

It’s cold outside? Add a black coat and attack! A black woolen coat is elegant and perfect to be paired with this dress, that also has some black and silver details (I said it was party-perfect).

 

Did you like my gloves touch? I get quite cold during the fall/winter season and I love some accessories such as gloves and scarves to keep me warmer. It’s that little detail that sometimes makes a difference in getting warmer and also in style.

This dress is from Stylewe, I already own some other dresses from this website and they have a good quality for an affordable price. Like the others that I own, this red dress has a nice fabric and it was well made.

This one is made of a shiny fabric, what makes it even more perfect for the holiday’s season!

 

And after all, fashion is all about choosing the outfits you like more and having fun!

The dress is from a website called StyleWe that works with independent fashion designers from all around the round, and it has some very interesting fashion available over there.

In order to create a ladylike outfit, don’t forget to pick some delicate accessories as well. Court shoes with some jewelry, a delicate handbag as well as earrings, a bracelet and some rings, all of them in a delicate style to match the whole outfit.

The dress is made in jacquard, so it’s gives a lot of shape and structure to the dress, making it to stay in this shape of a skirt on A-line silhouette (A-line is the name of this shape of skirt that looks like the letter “A”, its tight on the waist and big and voluminous at the end of it).

Summer Dress in Floral Print

Straight from Milan’s spring, a floral dress outfit on Via della Spiga, one of the streets that forms the famous Fashion Quadrangle (Quadrilatero della Moda) here in Milan, known for being a neighborhood of fashion and sophistication.

I love a more delicate and feminine style, but to bring a trendy touch to my outfit and make it a little bit different, I decided to go for a metallic bag in rosé color.

Milan Blogger Manu Luize

An informal look, but cute and preppy. To make it comfy and pretty, I decided to go for ballerina flats, besides it’s super comfortable to walk around Milan.

 

The floral dress is very spring-like and fresh, after all, the weather here is more like summer than spring.

My accessories for this look with my floral dress were very minimalist and just a few pieces: just a pair of small ring earrings in rosé and a ring:

The baby pink bomber jacket completed my outfit, in a very thin fabric, just to give it a little more charm and for when it gets just a littler fresher late at night.
