    5 Tips on Surviving Your Holiday Party

    Last updated 3 months ago

    It's holiday party season again. Time for friends, families and co-workers together over drinks and mini versions of your fave foods and chat about vacation plans.  Make sure you survive this season without starring in an embarrassing YouTube video or becoming the gossip story of the new year.  We've put together our top 5 tips on making it through your holiday parties without even a scratch.

    1. Don't ditch your diet - When you've got parties popping up every weekend, it no longer becomes a little cheat day or just a few extra calories. Don't ruin everything you've worked so hard for this year by binging on sugary drinks, heavy cakes and salty snacks. These salty, greasy and sugary snacks make you thirstier and you might end up drinking more than you should. Use tiny plates so you physically can't load up with piles of food. Keep moving, mingling and dancing to burn off those holiday calories before they can stick.

    2. Remember, this is not a frat party - You might be best friends with some of your colleagues but the fact remains that this office party is just that, a work event. You're surrounded by your peers, bosses and employees and you need to maintain a professional atmosphere. Give yourself a drink limit of one or two and enjoy them slowly so you can enjoy the entire party. You know how you act when you've had too many shots or after that 3rd cranberry-vodka; don't be that holiday party story that gets circulated until the next year's party.

                    Try this year's fave holiday party drink - The Sparkling Pomegranate Cocktail with its vibrant pomegranate juice, sweet grenadine, and chilled, dry sparkling wine combined for the perfect holiday toast!

    3. Is there a dress code? - You might want to ask if it's not expressly written on the invitation. No matter if it's formal, casual or in-between, your dress should be appropriate. Remember, this is a work function and the same rules that apply to your professional wardrobe carry into your holiday attire. Basically, you don't want to show too much skin but you also don't want to look frumpy. Look for flattering silhouettes that also keep the cleavage in check and don't show more leg than you do in the office.

                    For formal parties we've picked out our fave new gown, Terani's Sinuous Halter Gown in Navy. Available in sizes 4 and 10 for only $135!

                    For a more casual setting we've chosen the perfect cocktail dress, Terani's Floral Illusion dress. Available in sizes 2 and 6 for only $105!

    4. Not sure what they're serving? - Either way, eating a small meal beforehand is a good idea. This way your stomach is already full so when you are handed your first cocktail upon entering the party, you aren't automatically tipsy. If the food is served later than you're used to, which is often the case at parties, or if it's just cocktail snacks, you won't be moaning from hunger within the first hour. 

                If you're hosting you just have to serve this year's fave cocktail bite - Creamed Phyllo Spinach Cups turn a beloved side dish into a cute and savory appetizer and are quick and easy to make!

    5. Don't talk shop all night - Are you at a loss for how small talk even works? Just keep the conversations moving without talking only about yourself. Ask open-ended questions about where your colleagues might be spending their holiday time off. Or better yet, ask them where they got their gorgeous dress (and then do a little Lending Luxury name dropping yourself). Remember not to pry into anyone's personal business or participate in any topics that might be controversial or offensive. Remember, religion and politics are always off-limits! Just be friendly and when you're done with all the chit chat, make a gracious exit and thank your host. Easy as pumpkin pie.

    3 Very Important Gown Trends

    Last updated 3 months ago

    1. High Necklines

                    Much like cocktail dresses, our formal gowns are taking the high road as well. These high necklines are ultra-flattering and eliminate the need for extra accessorizing.  Aim for a more refined beauty with these regal necklines. This gorgeous navy Terani gown follows 2 trends and looks great on the thin and curvy.

    2. Nude Accents

                    Show off your sexy curves without showing off too much skin with this nifty trend. Nude color fabric is back in a real way. Often overlaid with lace appliqué so a faux-risqué look, the dress blends into your skin to show off your best assets. Our Sherri Hill high low gown makes lace sexy!

    3. Sleek Skirts

                    Opt for a sleek silhouette with a straight floor-length skirt that elongates your form for some mile high legs.  These skirts are often slinky fabric and should smooth right over you but a little spanx never hurt anyone.  Often paired with high necklines to complete the illusion of a tall frame, the skirts are usually simple and allow the embellished bodice to shine. Choose the sleek Jasz Couture Red Carpet dress and check off all 3 boxes this season!

    3 Very Important Cocktail Dress Trends

    Last updated 3 months ago

    1. High Necklines

                    A departure from the ultra-plunging necklines we've become used to, these high necklines create a whole new attitude. Feel like royalty in these often intricately beaded bodices. These mile high necklines create a more demure look for a more sophisticated woman. Our Ema Savahl halter dress is sexy without being sinful.

    2. Sheer Inserts

                    Again following a more modest pattern, stay covered up with a hint of sexy with these panels of sheer netting instead of just baring skin.  Often at the waist and sides, these inserts create the illusion of nude skin so you can pull off that sexy look comfortably. Show off some skin in this Terani silver dress with its sexy side and neckline inserts.

    3. Bold Colors

                    We can thank Autumn for this fun trend. Every Fall, the color palette moves from the brights and neons of Summer to sultry jewel tones that mimic the natural turn of the leaves. Rock some delicious burgundy, gorgeous gold and hunter greens this season. Bonus, these deeper hues are slimming! Everyone is in love with the wine colored lace on our Terani cocktail dress.

    Who's excited about these fun new trends? Want to get started right away? All of these dresses are available for rent online and in our Tampa showroom! Or check our some of our favorite cocktail dresses on our Pinterest Board.
