As for the look I’m wearing in today: This dress is maybe one of my favorite I’ve ever owned. It’s so flattering and I love the polka dots and ruching on the front. It’s from C/MEO Collective via Fashion BNKR and you can find this LRN (little red number) here! Vices Short Sleeve dress. Sunglasses are the Ashtray from Raen, shoes are the Hope heels from Naturalizer.

Holiday Party Attire Round-Up: Best Dresses + $500 Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway!
The Style Sauce Holiday Party Dresses

It’s that time of the year again! Time for all the Holiday shenanigans which means you need something to wear to your office party, your bff’s ugly sweater party, Hanukkah dinner with your in laws, happy hour with your co-workers, happy hour with that dude from Tinder, happy hour with that dude from Bumble, happy hour with that one person that always dms you on Instagram who’s your last ditch resort for an New Year’s Eve kiss… you see where I’m going with this? You need a lot of festive frocks around the holidays and sometimes it can be overwhelming because you don’t want to buy like 737 dresses, lol. Here I’ve rounded up a bunch that I love and feel like can be worn more ways than 1 - so at least you can check 2 events off your list per dress! Woo hoo!

The one I’m wearing here is a little hot pink wrap dress and I love it for the happy hour with your girls situation, but it could also double as a dress for drinks with the dude from Bumble, or you could even add some sparkly accessories and rock it on New Year’s Eve. What I’m saying is this sort of dress will take you far in the Holiday party circuit this year, and it’s not your usual red and green plaid situation which is great.


Shop some of my fave dresses for every Holiday occasion below. Also - there’s a special giveaway on today’s blog for my 12 Days of Season of Sauce giveaways!

4 Ways to Spice Up an All Black Outfit
The Style Sauce how to wear an all black outfit // Fashion blogger // Style Tips

Yeahhhh it’s the holidays, but black is back. LOL jk actually it never left (obvi) and it never will. It’s a fashion staple that stands the test of time no matter what era it is. I myself pretty much live for an-all black moment. It’s definitely my go-to when I can’t really figure out what to wear, but sometimes you can totally start to feel a little bored with it. That said, here’s a few ways that will help spice up an all black outfit that will take your next monochromatic look to the next level you really need in your fashion life.

The Style Sauce fashion blog all black outfit

1) Add white accessories

As seen here friends, there’s nothing like wearing all black and then popping a white shoe or pair of sunnies on to bring some life to the outfit (or be like me and do both :P) The whole thing is very 60’s and if you’ve been reading my blog for even a week, you know how much I love a vintage inspired look!

White it Out

2) Mixed Media

Ok this is actually an art term, but what I mean is mix the textures of the fabrics to make it more interesting to the eye. Think a black cashmere sweater with a black sequined skirt, or a black faux fur jacket with a black leather skirt. The difference of textures looks different to the eye and tends to be more interesting than just wearing all the same fabric. Here I’m wearing faux leather leggings with a sweater that has feathered fringe and you can see the movement of the fabrics and the lines between where the sweater stops and the leggings begin.

3) Add a red lip

I think this is actually my favorite thing to do when I’m wearing all black. There’s nothing like a little pop of color on your face against an all black look, and it really can bring to life your outfit. It brings the focus away from your clothes and to your beautiful face! I generally prefer a more matte red lip or maybe semi-sheer vs a high gloss, shop some of my faves below.

4) Play with hemlines

Try playing with different lengths of the black clothes you’re wearing for your OOTD - like a long jacket over a short skirt, a cropped shirt with high waisted black denim, or a mid-calf boot with a flowy midi skirt.

Highs and lows

What’s your favorite way to jazz up an all black look? Let me know in the comments!
