‘Tis the season for parties and shopping, that familiar time of year when you find yourself in the thick of the crowds, humming bad Christmas music and searching for that perfect party look. And while it isn’t the calmest time of year to browse the racks, and frankly prices aren’t quite the deals of January or February, we know you just can’t help yourself. To aid you in your holiday shopping, here’s a list of this season’s Heeb approved fashions for women.

I’m OK with most of the DO’s and DON’T’s except the embargo on over-the-knee boots. What’s wrong with protection from the snow, slush and cold? May I add that you seem to agree with this functionality despite the slashed circle, so why the ‘thumbs down’? And if she also deplores ‘super-mini’ skirts, she should be pleased that the more leg covering the better. I see this look all the time in Chicago.
I’m not giving up my brightly coloured tights. But this may just prove that I’m several years behind on the fashion trends.
No stilettos? But I just broke up with a short Jewish guy and rewarded myself with a new pair!
Great article! A great site for dresses that has a lot of tznius options, I prefer to go to empresscouture.com
this is quite funny saying what you can and cannot wear.
I def disagree with the ‘no’ on over-the-knee boots and mini skirts/dresses! :) Those two actually go pretty well with each other.
