Why I Wear Black To Holiday Parties

Holidays party outfit idea

We are one more week away from entering into holiday party season. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's parties are very important for many of us and a big part of that is because we get to spend time with our loved ones. We also love holiday parties because of the good food that is always involved and also because of the delicious cocktail drinks. I personally forget about food portions when I go to holiday parties and of course, sometimes I splurge a little bit with drinks.
But holiday parties are not only about family, friends, food and drinks - oh no, they are also about showing off our pretty clothes and shoes. Yes, wearing something nice is important. We want to look the best to the people we care about. That being said, to me, it's also important to consider comfort and practicality when choosing what to wear for parties in order to never spoil the fun.

Today, I created this post to briefly explain to you the one simple reason why I tend to wear black to social events and parties.
Black, to me, is the safest color...but I'm not only talking about fashion-wise, I'm also talking about being the safest color after a spill of drink or food. Black is very forgiving unless you are planning to pet your hostess' white dog or cat; then no, it's not forgiving at all. You are probably thinking, "What? I know how to behave in parties and I can handle my drinks" and I don't doubt it, however, it's unfortunate that we can't speak for others. Believe me, I've learned my lesson.
When choosing my shoes for holiday parties I have a similar formula as with my clothes. When it's possible, I try to wear dark shoes that are made of  a wipeable material such as patent or glossy leather.
Well, that was my simple reason (maybe silly to many, but not to me) why I prefer to wear black to most social events and parties.

FIND THE PERFECT BLACK LACE DRESS:

Besides loving black for my party outfits, I also want to share with you one more preference. Regardless of the color I wear for the holidays, I prefer to select garments with a bit of extra room around my midsection. I feel bloated after splurging with food and drink, but no one will notice my froggy belly if I'm wearing something a bit forgiving. If you don't have this problem of eating or drinking a bit too much at your holiday parties, then, by all means, enjoy your black bodycon dress or skirt.

Keep in mind that wearing all black to a party doesn't have to be boring. Try to spice things by mixing textures and proportions or by adding interesting accessories. Your imagination sets the limit when wearing black.

    Jejeje...esta entrada me rechifla! Sabes que la semana pasada fui a una fiestecita y mi sobrino derram贸 la mitad de su cerveza sobre mi vestido rosado. El vestido qued贸 inservible por que se le nota mucho la mancha aun despu茅s de mandarlo a la tintorer铆a. Ahora, yo me pongo abusada y seguir茅 tu consejito. ;-)
