December Edit: The perfect LBD for your holiday winter wardrobe

Katie Holmes Nordstrom Opening LBD
No matter the occasion or season, there are always plenty of opportunities to wear a fabulous dress and, an overwhelming number of styles to pick from can be daunting. And since there is no bad time to invest in such a piece, I’ve put together a December edit guide on my favourite dresses that you can shop this month. 

It seems like in December it is the month or year, rather of the dress. With weddings happening, special engagement dinners, or just a lovely night out with the girls, a dress is essential in completing your entire look. And let us not forget about date-night where you must look your most devastating.

My December dress edit has silky, winter-proof warm velvet, knits, and glittery options galore. Metallic is big this season and with good reason. Who doesn’t want to sparkle and look shiny. Plus, these dresses can be highly versatile, they can work for the office, or any weather condition and be worn casual with a bit of a dressy edge. And best of all, you can wear them simply on their own to shine, or layer them for your own spin on the look.

Feminine silhouettes, cocktail parties with the girls, late night dinner with your partner, and so much more. The timeless LBD should be on everyone’s December wardrobe this season. 


I have compiled a list of some LBD’s that will work for anyone’s style and budget. All the best black dresses, and more below. 

The Satin LBD 

With voluminous ballon sleeves, satin glamorous fabric, with a draped wrap-style skirt makes this minidress universally flattering. ASTR The Label

Feather Trimmed 

Feather trimmed-minidress that alone sounds like a touch of glamour. And in a fun way, reminds me of the early 90s. Via Clueless, but levelled up for this December edit. 16 Arlington

Knitted dress 

A knitted dress can look classic and cosy at the same time. And this T-long knitted dress by Alexander Wang is no exception.
