It’s time to get our holiday wardrobe ready for the festive times ahead! With holiday parties, company soirees and intimate gatherings all on the agenda this season, there is no better time to start planning our ensembles. While it’s easy to rely on the token LBD collection to get you through the season in style, the Shop With Us team is all about incorporating color and texture into the mix. We take pride in stepping out in comfort and while a pantsuit can certainly make a bold statement, we’re thinking of a svelte frock to turn heads. So naturally, once we spied this velvet mididress at Nordstrom, we immediately had to swoon.
We are excited to add the Ali & Jay Velvet Mididress to our collection since it blends on-trend styling with a smart-tailored finish. Crafted with a polyester and spandex blend fabric, this velvet number feels amazing against the skin for a comfortable wear all night long.
Flaunting a surplice V-neckline, this garment provides a healthy dose of décolletage for a flirty vibe. We love that the faux wrap front and adjustable tie nips at the waist to highlight any figure.
Providing a slightly fitted top and a flowy bottom that hits right at the knee, this piece offers dimension and movement for a structured finish. Complete with adjustable straps and a hidden back zip closure with a tie back, we can count on this dress to mold to our body seamlessly for a flattering fit. Even better, the unlined construction gives this design a lighter weight to feel like a second skin with every wear.
The true epitome of a festive number, we can’t stop fawning over the burgundy style. A great color that will look amazing on all complexions, this number will certainly transform us into the belle of the ball.
For fashionistas who are feeling blue, the navy shade is a fabulous pick. The perfect way to play with darker shades while adding a gorgeous pop of color with a rich texture, this luxurious velvet find checks all the boxes.
Normally retailing for $148, we’ve hit the jackpot thanks to the 40 percent off markdown, leaving Us with an $89 price tag. A budget-friendly option that combines style and grace, this frock makes for the perfect investment.
An ultrafeminine style that will work for any party, date night or girl’s night events we have planned, we can’t wait to rule the streets in style. After all, there is no such thing as having too many stylish finds on hand.
Since this piece works for so many occasions, we plan on wearing this velvet mididress with slim-strap sandals, a cropped fur coat, a sleek clutch, hoop earrings and a nude lip for our next holiday party. For date nights with our beau, we’re teaming this frock with a crossbody bag, a top coat and comfy pumps to seal the deal.
We can even dress this garment down by pulling out a basic tee, chic booties, a hobo bag and a wrap coat to run errands in style. Versatile in nature, we can even opt for a pair of comfy sneakers, a puffer coat, a long sleeve tee and a backpack for a sporty-glam vibe. No matter how we decide to style this mididress, we can feel confident knowing that we will make a statement wherever our day takes Us.
The beautiful design and top-quality construction have totally left Nordstrom shoppers in awe. Reviewers love that this frock fits true to size and shows off our figure, while others like that the adjustable straps work well to fit people with smaller busts. Shoppers also like that the dress hits the mid-calf to protect our legs from the cold, while others appreciate that this style is sexy while keeping it classy. One reviewer shared “for the price, the velvet looks unbelievable!”
Many shoppers also like that the tie in the back allows you to make the waist tighter for a cinched look of your choosing. Crafted with a surprising stretch, shoppers dig that this design is comfortable and easy to wear. One noted that this design is “the perfect dress for fall weddings, birthdays, and winter holidays.” In other words, this style is the all-purpose dress of our dreams.
A stunning pick, this design will surely get tons of wear in our wardrobe. Sizes extra small to extra large are currently available, and you can bet that we’ve added both styles to our shopping cart. The newest addition to the Nordstrom sale section, it’s only a matter of time before this design sells out.
