Finding the perfect dress for holiday events can seem like such a challenge. I’m always looking for something not too fancy yet not too casual either. When looking for a holiday dress, I want something I can wear throughout the year for other evening occasions that might occur. So, today I’m sharing a black satin dress that checks all those boxes.
I usually put off finding a dress for holiday events until it’s too late. I then either by something hastily with little thought, or I repurpose an older dress in my closet that doesn’t really go with the event. As I build a thoughtful closet, I have to remind myself to plan ahead. To find items that are multi-event functional and things I’ll love for a very long time.
When Solika kindly reached out to me about their brand, I was instantly excited. Their dresses are classic, elegant, simple, and timeless. I was very excited that any of their dresses could fill the gap of holiday and evening wear that my wardrobe is very much missing. This dress could easily be worn any season and yet is also somehow seems like the perfect winter holiday dress.
Styling a Black Satin Dress
I’ve styled the dress here with my simple Everlane day glove flats to keep it laid back without being too dressed up. I would wear this outfit out for dinner in the city, to a holiday party, or a more casual holiday event with family. Other ways I plan on styling this dress:
For Dressier Events
Low black patent heels
Low nude, closed toe heels
Strand of pearls
Faux fur jacket
For Casual Events
A simple shawl and coat
A plaid blazer
I’m wearing a size XS here and it fits perfectly. Usually, I wear an XS or S and am glad I went with the XS since the style I’m wearing is supposed to fit loosely. I added the belt for a more structured look but it can be worn without one as well. I think the belt gives this outfit a very classic aesthetic. The black satin has an effortless, vintage feel yet with a modern sophistication. I’m looking forward to styling this dress for many evening parties to come.
Also, since I just learned about Solika, and this is your first time hearing about them too, I’d love to hear in the comments which dress is your favorite!
