Parties during the holiday season are a common occurrence, as friends, family and coworkers fill your mailbox with countless invitations. As these events run the gamut from casual to dressy, it can be difficult to pull together a look for a party that fits the bill. Your main objectives when picking holiday event attire should be comfort and style. You can’t go in holiday PJs but you also don’t want to outshine your host by wearing your gold sequin bodysuit.
The easiest way to dress for these events is to incorporate simple separates from your wardrobe with stunning pieces that can be worn again and again. For example, wearing an angora or cashmere black cardigan or sweater combined with a gold sequined skirt or satin pant paired with a great shoe and jewelry creates a holiday look that is festive yet subdued. Another idea would be to wear a gold or silver metallic top with a black skirt or pant (heel height is dependent upon length of skirt and fit of pant). By mixing and matching pieces from one’s existing wardrobe, it is possible to alleviate stressful holiday shopping and to ensure a classic presentation appropriate for any holiday party. Below are some ideas we have for classic statement pieces that would wow at any party!- Melissa Brown and Benjamin Miller
