formal dress ideas for winter

DRESS   magenta one shoulder mini dress (runs big, order usual US dress size)   |   COAT   black faux fur collar coat (available in 4 colors, order usual US size)   |   EARRINGS   bow earrings   |   CLUTCH   faux fur clutch (available in 4 colors, similar here)    |   SHOES   suede pointy toe pumps   |   LIP COLOR   merry rose

Between Christmas parties, winter weddings, formals and functions, it seems like there’s always an excuse to don a fabulous party dress during these winter months! The tricky part? Actually finding one you love!

Tips on where to find winter formal dresses is a request I’ve been getting frequently as of late, so today I’m excited to be partnering with Nordstrom in revealing one of my very favorite lines for gorgeous, stylish and affordable party dresses… Topshop!

Take this gorgeous hot pink mini dress, for example. Between the blousey one-shoulder sleeve, the waisted detailing and the leopard jacquard fabric, it has so many stylish elements that make it look far more expensive than $95.

And speaking of pieces that look more expensive than they are, another Topshop piece I have been wearing on repeat lately? This gorgeous faux fur collar coat! I ordered it in black initially, but fell in love with it in-person so much so that I also ordered it in this gorgeous camel shade, too!

You’ll find so many pieces that offer gorgeous style at an affordable price in the Topshop line. I’m dying to get my hands on this sequined sweater, for example, and this glam feather shoulder bag. Both are under $100!

For those of you who are looking for a festive party dress, check out these gorgeous pieces from Topshop. So many fun options for everything from New Year’s Eve soirees to debutant parties and everything in between!

Keep in mind, Topshop sizing runs smaller than others! I recommend using the “(fits like a …)” blurb to the right of each size, and sizing up one from your usual! For example, I typically wear a size 0, so I almost always order a size “4 US (fits like a 0-2)” in tops and dresses. This dress and coat were a rare exception, I ordered a 2 US for a perfect fit!

Now I have to ask… if you had to pick, which Topshop dress above would be your fave?

Love from Texas,


Thank you, Nordstrom, for sponsoring this post.
