What To Wear To A Holiday Party – if this is a question you’ve been asking yourself lately, why not take a cue from one of the newest leading ladies herself, Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge has been awarded much praise from style watchers, as she effortlessly combines classic and modern dressing. If you’re unsure of what to wear to a holiday party, take a look at the following classic looks.

1 Alexander McQueen 3D Jacquard Knit Dress

With a figure like hers, Kate is made for fitted dresses such as these. This dress has a demure design with a high neckline, cap sleeves, and knee-length hemline. However, the punchy red colour, body-hugging fit, and jacquard texture are all daring and contemporary touches. Fittingly, the head designer at Alexander McQueen is Sarah Burton, who also designed Kate’s wedding dress.

2 Topshop Zip Back Crepe Dress

This dress has a classically demure design, but comes in a punchy contemporary green colour.
