This Dress Will Carry You Through All the Holiday Parties—and Beyond

When you’re staring down the barrel of the holiday party circuit and don’t have nearly enough new outfits to cycle through, we promise you don’t actually need to buy six new dresses. Instead, practice a bit of magic with just one. The trick? Some really clever styling. In this next installment of our video series Style Magic, blogger Pam Hetlinger of The Girl From Panama shares exactly how to style up a single printed dress from INC International Concepts, Created for Macy's for three different party occasions.

Watch the video above to pick up a trick or two—the show must go on.

It may be the holidays, but that doesn’t mean your life gets put on pause, right? This one printed dress works with or without a velvet jacket for daytime errands, lunch dates, or a work event. Style with of-the-moment white ankle boots and you’re solid.

Same piece, just styled to look like a skirt. For those days when you don’t really feel like putting on jeans (but also don’t want to do a dress look), layer a sweater with velvet bell sleeves over your printed dress. Add a large belt and silver kitten heels for a polished and unexpected take on holiday dressing.

This dress was made for the ultimate party look. Bring back your velvet blazer and drape it over your shoulders, but style a mock-neck under your dress this time. It creates a layered ensemble straight out of a fashion girl’s dream. Pair with crystal earrings (this year is all about sparkle, after all), sock boots (trend alert), and a sleek clutch for the holiday parties you have ahead.

One of our favorite things about these looks? They’re all super wearable. Click here to see more from Macy’s for all of your holiday shopping.
