The general consensus about holiday attire tends to say that it should be glitzy and glam, even a little over-the-top. That can leave fans of minimalist style feeling a little overwhelmed and out of place. Luckily, there are tons of options in STAUD's sale that are totally party-ready, without a single sequin in sight. Fashion girls in favor of a streamlined look need search no further.
You may already be familiar with STAUD, a relatively new brand that launched in 2015, for its fresh take on contemporary fashion. The brand aims to provide shoppers with styles that are current, but not overly trendy, and at an accessible price point. And the timeless designs are even friendlier on the wallet right now, during STAUD's three-day weekend sale that began on Oct. 26. During the sale, shoppers can score up to 50 percent off select pieces, including some ready-to-party dresses, jumpsuits, and tops.
Stand out from the crowd of sparkly mini dresses in STAUD's Donna Jumpsuit, down to $227 from $325. The jumpsuit will be no less glam than its metallic or sequined counterparts, and gives off a totally effortless elegance. The fitted bodice and square neckline are decidedly feminine, and the flared bottoms provide a dose of fun. Style with velvet platforms for a cool textural element, and don't forget a pair of statement earrings.
Bold color is another way to make a statement with holiday dressing, and STAUD's sale provides multiple opportunities to deck yourself out in an eye-catching shade. The brand's $171 Halliwell Dress, initially $245, shines in a gorgeous shade of emerald, while the side slit gives it a dose of old Hollywood glamour.
Cheery, bright red is equally as festive, and STAUD's tulle offerings in the vivid shade are perfectly party-appropriate. The red tulle Sweeny top, formerly $175 and now just $87, is a super feminine option ideal for holiday house parties. Style the top with a slip skirt and suede mules for a modern vibe.
The Stella dress — rendered in the same vivid tulle — has a ballet-esque quality about it, calling to mind Nutcracker dancers that evoke holiday charm. Wear the dress with strappy nude sandals, and keep jewelry delicate for a sweet, feminine vibe. Initially $375, the piece is down to only $187 during STAUD's sale.
Other options ideal for lively cocktail parties or elegant celebratory soirées include coordinating top-and-pant sets fashioned in classic shades like black or red, several more satiny jumpsuits, and pieces in unconventional hues like lilac and rose pink. The overarching theme? All the sale offerings showcase STAUD's eye for refined cuts and clean lines to achieve a minimalist and elegant effect.
Even if you're usually one to pile on the sparkle during the holiday season, STAUD's sale may just convince you to try sporting something a little more simple, but still incredibly chic this time around.
