With the holidays approaching, your mailbox will soon be filled with countless invitations. From office parties to cocktails, sometimes it’s hard to find the perfect outfit. Silk dresses are always my go-to during the holidays since they’re easy to throw on and can be completely transformed with just the right accessories. Add eye-catching earrings or a unique clutch to instantly update any basic silk dress. Or opt for a silk dress in a vibrant color. Some may think that a black silk dress may get more use, but trust me you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
