Dress Guide for the Holidays: Style Tips from Wedding Dress Designer, Liz Fields

I know that deciding what to wear during the holidays can be daunting.  Here is a little style guide that I have put together for the holiday season.  I hope that you find it helpful, but, most of all, don’t forget to have fun!  You will look great no matter what you are wearing!

 

The Occasion- The holiday dinner where you meet HIS parents for the first time

Liz Fields Bridesmaid & Social Dress Style #350

The explanation – It is important not to seem overly sexy but still show off your beautiful self.  This strapless social occasion dress is perfect for the stressful, make-it-or-break-it event.  The square-neckline is flattering without showing off too much skin.  The added wrap-around bow detail could even give the subliminal message that you are the perfect gift for their son!

The Occasion- Evening get-together with your family (be it Christmas Eve,  Hanukkah, Kwanza, or a reunion)

Liz Fields Bridesmaid & Social Dress Style #365

The explanation – Having a family dinner can feel like navigating a minefield, depending on your personal family dynamic.  You want to look your best to keep any ‘loving criticisms’ to a minimum.  At the same time, you may not want to dress too obviously sexy because like the “meeting his parents challenge,” it might not go over the way you intended.  In this case, social occasion dress , style 365 will fit the bill. The v-neck will look stunning on you, while the pencil skirt will remind your family that you are the good daughter!

The Occasion –  Girls night out

 Liz Fields Bridesmaid & Social Dress Style #255

The explanation – It’s time to have some fun with the girls, and maybe even exchange some of those presents.  Now that you don’t have to worry about what you need to keep covered up,  feel free to let loose with this special occasion dress.  The wrapped details in the bodice are figure flattering, so all of your friends will be jealous of how great you look (even if you don’t want to admit you were trying)! 

The Occasion – New Year’s Eve

Liz Fields Bridesmaid & Social Dress Style #370

The explanation – Whether you are spending the night alone with your special someone or going to a big party, this a time to make sure you look and feel your best. The Chinese see red as the color of happiness and wealth so why not add a little red detail as a good luck charm for the new year to come (it will look sexy too).  This V-neck, halter-top social occasion dress will do just that.

Now, don’t forget that after the Holidays wind down, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!  This day is especially important if you learn that the man in your life is planning on proposing.  With that in mind, you might want to start giving some thought to what you’ll be wearing on that special night!  Personally, I would go with something cute, short, flirty, and of course red.  Perhaps something like this  red  formal dress, Style #362.

Of course, after he proposes, you know exactly where to head to pick out the perfect wedding gown!

Happy Holidays!

Liz Fields exhibits Wedding Dresses at Bride Chic: Bergen County Brides Event

Hello friends, I hope the beginning of the holiday season is going well for everyone!

I spent my Thursday night getting to know some really special people that I wanted to tell you about.

I was invited to show our wedding dresses at the Bride Chic: Bergen County Brides Cocktail Party, which was to benefit Wish Upon A Wedding - New Jersey.  This was an exclusive, one vendor per category event, so of course I was very happy to have been asked to attend.

The Bride Chic event, presented by the Women’s Club of Ridgewood New Jersey, was held in a beautiful, historic Colonial building.  I heard a few brides enquiring about the space for themselves.

Not only was this a great opportunity to showcase our Lo-Ve-La by Liz Fields wedding dress collections, but it was great fun as well!  How could it not be with delicious food, wine tasting, and of course prizes!  Oh and did I mention that  the event was emceed by Lisa Page, DJ of 92.3 and that Megin DeCarlo, of ‘My Big Friggin Wedding’ spent the night giving tips to brides-to-be!?

My new friend Nestor Cristancho, photographed this posh event, and was kind enough to share some images of our bridal gowns  for you to enjoy!
