This style board is one I made on Polyvore.com and highlights a few of the trends I like this year. When dressing on a budget, I like to look for silhouettes to emulate on my own using what I have on hand as much as possible. My favorite pieces from this collage are the black dress with gold straps and the navy long sleeve dress. I think both are very interesting, but the navy is probably the one I’d wear to stand out this season. Notice the common shapes on the other dresses. This blouson style would be sure to draw the eye- and, yes, why not wear navy to your Christmas function? Happy shopping, styling, or sewing!!!
