Holiday Parties: Match Your Drink to Your Dress

Haven't you always wondered what your cocktail order would look like if it morphed into a cocktail dress? No, me neither.  But it was definitely fun to think about, since drinks and dresses sort of have their own intrinsic personalities, and matching them up made for some decently entertaining daydreaming. (Like, you know that craft beer would be a Converse-wearing, Kristen Stewart-y chick, but a frothy pink bellini might be more of a Kate Middleton sort of girl.)

The same logic applies to holiday cocktails, or at least it does in my slideshow. I'm not seriously suggesting you go out of your way to coordinate the stereotype behind your beverage with the style of clothes you wear, but if you did, this is how you would do it. And if you want to do it, by all means do. It's sort of fun, and totally silly, and isn't that what the holidays are all about? (I'm not sure, because I will pretty much end any statement lately with "that's what the holidays are all about.")

Eggnog + Winter White

If you're not afraid of drinkable eggs, you're probably not scared of that stupid "no white after Labor Day" adage, either.

Hot Toddy + Retro Tea-Length Dress

It's what Betty Draper would have done.

Champagne + Sequins

Well, obviously.
file

House Special + Peplums

You want to try something new and different, but not, like, too crazy. Trendy-but-totally-everywhere peplum's are your thing.

Spiked Cider + Little Black Dress

Pair your classic with a classic.
file

Mulled Wine + Plaid

It's a slow-sipping, wrapped-in-a-blanket sort of drink, so pair it with something that shares a bit of its coziness.
