Reader Shelby writes, "I need some fashion help please! My boyfriend and I are celebrating our one year anniversary in December and have a hotel room booked in downtown Vancouver and are going for dinner/drinks and a fancy restaurant or lounge and I can't find an outfit. I want to wear a skirt or a dress but I can find one that looks appropriate for December. I really don't want to wear pants. Any suggestions?"
We don't blame you for wanting to get all dolled up for such a special occasion! And even though it'll be chilly, there are plenty of cute outfit options that will keep you cozy and make you look chic at the same time.
A dress is the easiest way to go--you'll have less to pack and won't need to worry about what goes with it! Start with something long-sleeved that has some special details, like a very rich fabric (velvet, metallic, or a pretty silk print all feel super-luxurious) and some sassy embellishments (think bows, sequins, tasteful cutouts, or rhinestones). This way, the element of fancy-ness comes from the dress itself and not how much skin you're showing, which means it'll be winter-appropriate and demure enough for a ritzy restaurant. Click here to see a few we're loving at all different price points in the Glamour closet.
Accessorize with chilly-weather staples like tights (you can't go wrong with basic black opaque ones, but why not mix things up with a lace or textured pair?)...Find some in the Glamour closet.
...and finish the look off with super-glam jewelry (a statement necklace if your dress isn't embellished around the neck, or oversize earrings if it is) and a hot pair of high heels. Get some killer options right here!
We hope that helps, Shelby! Have a fabulous time celebrating your anniversary, and don't forget to send us a photo of how great you look!
