Dress for the occasion.

I don’t know about you, but I’m always shopping for holiday looks at the very last minute. It might be a little late for the holiday parties but you can still buy a killer outfit for New Years. Here are some ideas…

Alexis Jones: I am that girl.

 

I love writing about strong woman with purpose. And I love listening to what they have to say. Marie Forleo is one of those women. One of her many admirable talents is that she shares her platform of influence with others on Marie TV. She interviews lots of women (and men) with a wonderfully relaxed intimacy and is able to pull something out of them you might not normally see.

I watched an interview she had with Alexis Jones, creator of IAmthatGirl.org. I had no idea who Alexis Jones was until I watched this episode of Marie TV.  Turns out she’s pretty fascinating. Not only does she run the women and girls empowerment organization (I Am That Girl) but she gives talks to athletes about sexual assault and violence against women. Her method of teaching about the subject and ways of combatting these issues is a bit avant-garde.

She is a pioneer in bringing men “into the conversation” about sexual assault instead of making them feel demonized and as though they are the enemy.  Her explanation is that men and people in general, shut down when you ridicule them and talk about how horrible they are when most of these men and boys haven’t done anything wrong. Making blanket statements that portray a group of people in a negative light doesn’t serve anyone. It simply pits groups of people against one another and stops any constructive conversation on how to fix the problem.

What Alexis attempts to do is bring male athletes into that conversation. Talking about sexual assault and violence in a way that is personal to them and makes them feel empowered to “be the hero” in a sense, by trying to change the culture that has enabled these acts to go on for so long.

To find out more about her incredible organization and how you can take part in this positive movement visit her web site: iamthatgirl.org. Oh… and by the book…

And of course I have to include a fashion component to this article. I love her laid back, athletic style and signature trucker hat. The best thing about the hat is that it raises money for “Protect Her” a chapter of I Am that Girl.

“ProtectHer, founded by Alexis Jones (who also founded I AM THAT GIRL!), is all about empowering male athletes and young men everywhere to respect the women in their lives. Learn more about ProtectHer here.”

#NYE.

Time to find the perfect outfit to ring in 2018 and I’ve curated a nice selection for you. Everything from sequins to jeans is in this post. If you need some advice, tips on the perfect outfit this holiday season email me: hilary@welldressedboston.com.

Sequins is always a hit for NYE and I love the idea of a sequin-jumpsuit to do something a little different but still fun and whimsical.

Coated high-waisted jeans. Honestly one of my favorite looks is jeans, heels and a cute top. And you can make it a little more dressy with a coated jean like this pair from Good American.

Here’s a great option to go with those jeans.

Obsessed with rose gold! This sequins body con dress is the perfect way to wear it.

I am really enjoying the look of a pretty satin booty to as a opposed to the typical strappy sandal. If you follow me on Instagram (@welldressedboston) you’ll see that I sported this look to a holiday party about a week ago. Here is a cute option if you want to go that route:

2) The color and material of this maxi dress are just luscious and the sleeves add an element of surprise and sexiness. Shop it at Nordstrom.com.

3) This one from Bloomingdales is by Rebecca Taylor. I love the ruffled turtleneck. Tough wearing short sleeves this time of year but if you pair it with one of those cozy, oversized sweaters and tall boots you’ll be cozy, chic and ready for the holidays.
