Holiday Parties: What to Wear

You've received an invitation to an upcoming holiday party, marked it on your calendar, bought the hostess gift but now the big question is "What do you wear" ? In order to plan the perfect ensemble, you first need to know more about the event. Does it take place during the day or at night? Casual or Formal?

Casual Party Attire

If you're attending an event during the day, it is usually safe to say that it will be on more of the casual side. During the holiday season, daytime style is all about layering- clothes and jewelry! Pair dark, trouser jeans and a boatneck or button-down top with a fun, yet tailored, blazer. Accessorize this polished look with classic stud earrings and either a contemporary stack of bracelets or layer of necklaces. Your jewelry will add color and texture to your simply stated outfit and turn it into a WOW ensemble! Lastly, a shimmering clutch and pretty pumps or trendy booties will finish off your look.


Formal Party Attire

Evening parties are typically more formal, so feel free to go all out will glamorous accessorizing. But to start, you really can't go wrong with the ever-versatile, LBD or little black dress. This holiday wardrobe must-have can be dressed up or down and made classic or contemporary depending on how you accessorize it. For a classic vibe, pair it with pearls, diamonds, sheer stockings and neutral heels. For a more contemporary vibe, pair it with long and linear drops, a bold cuff bracelet and a cocktail ring. Wear colorful opaque tights with pumps or dressy high-boots.
