This blogpost contains pr samples (marked with *) and affiliate links

Bells, golden lights, a lot of Christmas parties, and deadlines – pre-Christmas season is not only one of the most glamourous times of the year, it’s also one of the most stressful. And on top, we moved into a new flat at the beginning of December. So this month hasn’t been festive at all for us. However, by now, we managed to set up almost all of our furniture and most of the packing cases are tidied up. So now, it’s time for us to get into Christmas mood. The only thing I haven’t thought about a lot lately is what to wear on all those upcoming Christmas parties. 

Maybe the last few weeks have been busy for you as well, so I thought it might me a good time to share my best three tips on how to build a classy, chic, last-minute Christmas outfit. And the best: You can win a dress of your choice by Dolly and Dotty, but more on that later!

Classy Dress & fancy Accessories for a glamorous Christmas Outfit

Who doesn’t know this: We often don’t have time to think about our outfits for hours. Sometimes, I even don’t have time to change shoes after work, and before I have another appointment. So everytime, when I don’t have enough time to choose a fancy outfit, I follow these three points:


1st: Choose Classics

There are fashion classics we always can rely on. May it be a pencil skirt and blouses or the little black dresss. The latter one is such an elegant classic that goes for almost every occasion and is super easy to style. So it’s no wonder, that a little black dress is the base of my Christmas outfit.

Valerie by Venus Van Chic

The little black dress I’m wearing in the pictures is by Venus Van Chic, a kind of luxurious sister of Dolly and Dotty, and is called Valerie*. The fitted cut as well as some lovely details make it a real head-turner, which directly leads us to the next point:

2nd: It’s all about the Details

Classics are great, however, sometimes they can also be a little bit boring. This is why I always make sure my clothes have some lovely details. Such details can be a specific cut or ornaments, for example. In this case, the lovely fake-fur collar definitely adds that certain something to the dress. And if you prefer a more subtle look, you can also remove the fake-fur from the collar and sleeves of Valerie.

3rd: Wear glamorous and fancy Accessories

No matter how great the details of a garment are, accessories can still add an extra amount of glamour. During festive season, I always follow the motto more is more. This is why I chose a wonderful vintage hat with a veil as well as golden jewellery.

The Shiny Seamed Full Fashion Stockings by Secrets in Lace

The most special accessory, however, are my elegant stockings by Secrets in Lace*. They look super chic due to the black colour, but the real highlight of them is the golden seam. Matching it with my jewellery, it makes my outfit look so glamorous and festive. And as always when talking about Secrets in Lace, the quality is simply amazing.

PS: If you prefer a more colourful look, the stockings are also available with red seams (here) and metallic seams (here).
