As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, most of you are busy preparing for visiting or entertaining family. While this time of the year can be really hectic and stressful, it’s always nice to spend time surrounded by family and friends. As we’re preparing for various versions of celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday, we find ourselves reflecting on the things we are thankful for this year. Foremost, we are thankful for our friends and family, for each other, and for the success of Freshionable this last year. On a less serious, but equally important note, we are thankful for the apparel, shoes, and accessories that allow us to create endless fresh style possibilities in the office and outside. Here are a few essential wardrobe pieces that we’re thankful for this season.
The shift dress, like this one available on Freshionable, is an amazing addition to any career woman’s closet. Slimming and structured, this dress is flattering on all body types. The great thing about the shift dress is that it can be dressed up or down with ease to fit a variety of work or casual situations. As the holidays roll around, the shift dress can easily be dressed up or down with accessories for various parties, family gatherings, and holiday events.
