Something sparkly! 😀

I would guess cocktail attire.

@sunflower22:  Hmm I would assume that to mean maybe an ugly Christmas sweater or just a Christmas-y shirt or something?

[Edit] I just gathered they are wealthy…that might mean more formal like a cocktail dress.

@sunflower22:  I would assume cocktail dress, probably in the season’s colors. Reds, deep greens, gold etc.  Maybe add some christmas jewelry, or a nice brooch!

I would say colorful or sparkly cocktail attire…. so like regular cocktail attire but not a little black dress.

@NauticalDisaster:  Lol I am from ND. It’s too fucking cold for a damn cocktail dress, and when someone says “festive” I make sure to go all out. Hand me an ugly Christmas sweater, some gaudy, Santa Claus earrings and a pair of antlers and I am ready to rock any party.

@GooteyBootey:  +1 

I think you could also do something more simple, such as a little black dress, but dress it up with festive accessories.

To me it means glitter, sequins and sparkles!  And dark, rich, seasonal colours.  Dress pants and a beautiful blouse or sweater is acceptable.  I always go for a cocktail dress and either sparkly, patterned or opaque hose/tights.  But I love dresses, I wear them more often than pants.

Sparkly/shimmery dress in red, gold or dark green. 🙂
