I could not be more in love with this richly patterned turtleneck dress from Cara Cara. I bought it on a whim, pulled in by the motif, but was unsure whether I would like the figure-conscious style. I’m smitten. It hugs in all the right places and creates a lovely silhouette. I took an XS in this, my true size, so would advise the same for you. If you’ve been dragging your feet waiting for a Thanksgiving look to materialize in your closet: this is it. I actually might bump this up and wear myself for the occasion! I did already wear it out to dinner last week with friends, but I styled down by pairing with these cowboy boots. You could absolutely dress up with velvet platforms or sandals (these are in my cart).

If you like this dress, you might also like this La Double J (swoon), this velour statement (also Cara Cara), or this solid-colored ribbed knit turtleneck dress (available in two perfect late fall colors, and under $250).

I also earmarked this beautiful tweed Saloni number for an upcoming girl’s weekend. How fun?! I’m not usually a minidress gal, but I feel like this dress needs to be a mini to tone down the intensity/stodge factor of heavy tweed. I took my true size in this and it runs just a tiny bit snug. I’d still take your true size, but if between sizes, size up.

If you like this, you might also love this Alice + Olivia dress (swoooon, so my style), this Cara Cara (the pattern! Cara Cara is slaying with the rich patterns this season), or any of the brocade beauties from Arianne Elmy.

A few other fabulous statement finds:

+This saucy Amanda Uprichard, which I just ordered. $260, with a great 90s throwback vibe.

+This flirty Staud. Again, a 90s vibe — I can almost see Jennifer Love Hewitt in this? Into it!

+This spectacular SEA — the top is a ribbed wool sweater dress; the bottom is applique lace.

+This under-$200 dress — layer over a full-length slip.

+This feather trim top from Superbe.

+This black velvet maxi. Va va voom. So chic in its restraint.

+This FUN feathered Borgo de Nor.

Happy holiday shopping!
