It’s that time of year when the evites start rolling in and your calendar fills up with dinner parties and office shindigs and cookie swaps and white elephants (and that doesn’t even begin to account for the impromptu karaoke after-parties). So how do you get dressed during party season? This year, we’re focused on keeping things comfy but festive. Consider it our holiday gift to you.
FOCUS ON FABRICS
’Tis the season to choose fancy-feeling fabrics like plush velvet and luxe silk. Bonus points for going all out in a head-to-toe look and extra bonus points for pull-on waistbands. See? We told you we’d keep you comfortable.
STREAMLINE YOUR PARTY PALETTE
Stick to a few key shades that feel seasonal without veering into ugly sweater territory. Think winter white, emerald green, touches of rich gold, you get the idea. It’s also a great way to keep the holiday spirit vibe straight through until New Year’s.
DRESS UP DENIM
Yes you can wear jeans to the party, and yes you can wear jeans to the party *and* be the best-dressed guest. It’s as easy as pairing your favorite pair of skinnies with a sleek body-skimming (but not skintight) slip dress. It’s unexpected, it’s easy, it’s just a touch ’90s—the holy grail in other words.
