The standard form is a dress with a tasteful bodice (though it can include an ImpossiblyLowNeckline or AbsoluteCleavage), a full length bell-shaped skirt, and a generous amount of trimmings such as [[PrettyInMink fur (that's often snowy white)]], {{jewelry}}, ribbons, [[SymbolMotifClothing snowflake decorations]], {{Sparkles}}, sprigs of holly, etc. Best designed to wear [[DancesAndBalls during a formal dance]], lounging around the fireplace, or walking around [[DreamingOfAWhiteChristmas on a clear night after the snow fell]].

Red is the most common color, followed by white (especially if worn by a WinterRoyalLady), green, and even [[GoldMakesEverythingShiny gold]]. If blue is used, it is often paired only with white (and sometimes silver) to evoke an icy appearance, especially if worn by a WinterRoyalLady.

This is meant to equate the lady wearing it with MrsClaus, but her typical outfit is of the homely 19th century grandmother type, while these dresses can be quite extravagant.
