Luckily, Galvan have everything to cover your holiday wardrobe needs — from a relaxed family Christmas day to a black tie Christmas eve celebration, an intimate holiday dinner to a fun cocktail party with stylish friends, and even, for the lucky ones, a tropical escape attire to celebrate the festive season in the sunshine. From classic little silk dresses to full on sparkling cocktail numbers, velvety jumpsuits in rich hues to cool separates and cover-ups, this is your sartorial guide to the festive season.

Festive holiday greens
All eyes will be on you with this exquisite sequin maxi. Match your chicest Christmas tree in this pine-hued evening number. Aptly names Oceana, this is a glistening style for chic mermaids. The high halter neck creates an elongated silhouette, while the low-cut back is sensual and modern. A high slit makes this full-length style easy to move and dance in. Made from luxurious mirrored paillettes, it comes in head-turning turquoise, elegant olive and classic black.

Red sequins for the holidays

Follow her lead and wear festive red for the holidays. This dress is also available in pared-down sage and rose gold satin — a style to rewear year after year after year.
