The Fashion Magpie Holiday 2021 Dresses

Statement Dresses for Winter Occasions.

Far and away, my most-asked questions in emails, comments, and DMS — “What special occasion dress to wear to…!!!” (Winter wedding! NYE! Christmas Eve! Office cocktail party! Dinner party!) Sharing a roundup of my favorite current-season dresses in one place here. And I’m going to call it: salmon and marigold are going to be my new obsessions this upcoming season.

UNEXPECTED COCKTAIL PARTY SMASH: THIS IN THE MARIGOLD (!!) OR STRIKING BLACK…J’ADORE J’ADORE, THIS IN FOREST GREEN WITH THESE EARRINGS, OR THIS ULLA J IN SALMON OR MARIGOLD

BLACK TIE: THIS NAVY CLASSIC, THIS JOHANNA ORTIZ, OR THIS BLACK STATEMENT (LOVE THE NOTCH AT THE NECKLINE…CHIC!)

SEQUINS: HVN (IN MY CLOSET), THIS MINI, THIS EMERSON FRY, OR THIS UNEXPECTED $35 JEWELED SLIP WITH TIGHTS AND A GLITZY HEADBAND (LOOK FOR LESS WITH THIS $10 STEAL…JUST ORDERED AND WILL REPORT BACK ON TACKINESS FACTOR)

VELVET: VAMPIRE’S WIFE (SWOON), THIS REFORMATION (IN THE NAVY…SWOON AGAIN), OR THIS TIERED PRETTY (I WOULD WEAR THIS BAREFOOT FOR A FESTIVE DINNER AT HOME!)

DISCO QUEEN MOMENT: THIS MILLE WITH THESE HEELS

NYE: MICHAEL KORS OR ANYTHING IN YOUR CLOSET (INCLUDING FEATHERED OR JEWELED PAJAMAS) PAIRED WITH THESE $120 HEELS

HOT PINK (IT’S A THING ATM): THIS REFORMATION, THIS HUNTER BELL, OR THIS SALONI

JUMPSUIT: BOWS, SEQUINS (LOOK FOR LESS), OR THIS STARK WHITE COULD BE SPECTACULAR WITH A LITTLE FUR OVER THE SHOULDERS (BIANCA JAGGER DOES 2021?)

RED: STAUD (ALSO COMES IN DRAMATIC MAXI LENGTH — CHECK OUT THE BOW IN THE BACK), THIS TUCKERNUCK (WOULD WORK WITH BUMP), OR THIS WRAP STYLE ($35 — I OWN AN ALMOST IDENTICAL ONE FROM AMANDA UPRICHARD A FEW YEARS BACK AND IT IS SO CUTE!)

SEPARATES: THIS FEATHERED TOP (LOOK FOR LESS), THIS BELTED SKIRT (SUCH A FAB COLOR AND MATERIAL…PAIR WITH AN IVORY CASHMERE CREWNECK), THIS SEQUIN MIDI

P.S. Festive finds under $150, the feather trend, and statement accessories for winter.

P.P.S. Thoughts on leaving New York, a few months post-move.

P.P.P.S. On the notion that New York is “dead.”
