Must Haves: 10 Grandma-Approved Holiday Dresses

Choosing a holiday dress your grandma will approve of is an art form. It can’t be too flashy or high fashion.

Shopping The Trend: Oxblood

Oxblood: Just a fancier, more carnivorous way of saying maroon or burgundy. This deep purple-y red hue has been hot for awhile now and shows no sign of disappearing anytime soon, perhaps this is because oxblood is basically a funkier neutral and looks good with almost any other color it’s paired with. Got a thirst for oxblood? Here at…

I know what you’re going to say. “Amelia! It’s winter! Shouldn’t the mini skirts be stocked away for next summer?” That, my dears, is a fallacy.

Shopping The Trend: Cobalt Blue

Cobalt blue is one of those trends (and by “one of those trends” I mean “all trends”) that come back around every few years, but I always get particularly excited when fashion magazines start being like, “Have you heard of this really pretty color called cobalt blue?” because cobalt blue happens to be my favorite…
