The Holiday Style Guide — Party Edition - The North County Moms

Have you heard of the new holiday fashion trend, “dopamine dressing”? “It’s meant to be fun and glamorous and festive, perfect for the holidays!” says The Local Moms Network fashion contributor Kristin Kennedy of Closetful of Clothes.

Kristin urges us to make a statement with glam, over-the-top touches like feathers: “Look for a dress with feather detailing along the sleeves or neckline or bring in this trend with your accessories — a bag or pair of shoes with feather embellishments.” 

The classic, ubiquitous bow is having a moment too. Kristin suggests you “bring this trend in with bow details on your dress or sweater or wearing a big velvet bow in your hair. Rich fabrics like velvet are also big for this season.”

With luxe looks in mind, Kristin curated 5 holiday party outfits that embody “dopamine dressing,” while the head-to-toe styling means foolproof fashion.
