How To: Dress For The Holiday Party
Ahh, the holidays—a time of endless sweets, snowy scenes and…overwhelming calendars. So you might have RSVP’d “yes” to every invite that’s come your way, but don’t fret. You focus on spending quality time with your people, and we’ll take the stress out of dressing for it with a few fun suggestions.
HOW YOU FEEL COMES FIRST
If teetering heels, complicated dresses and bobby pin–laden updos just aren’t your thing, you certainly don’t have to start wearing them now. Go for a tee and jeans, add something fluffy (i.e., a big, beautiful jacket) and let your hair down. There’s no shame in being comfy-cozy or opting to go more over-the-top.
LET ONE COLOR BE YOUR GUIDE
It never fails, friends. Monochrome dressing makes everything easier. Choose a hue (can’t go wrong with black) and wear it from top to bottom. It’ll save you time, always looks cool, and it also lets you experiment with texture—hello, velvet blazer.
IF NOT NOW, WHEN?
We’ve all got that one thing in our closet. We don’t pull it out often, not because we don’t love it, but because maybe it’s a little out of our everyday outfit comfort zone. Consider this permission to wear that “thing” (perhaps it’s a shiny, celestial sneaker?) to whatever’s next on your itinerary.
ACCESSORIES ARE EVERYTHING
Whether your preferred outfit enhancer is a shiny statement earring or just a superglowy complexion (thanks, highlighter), don’t forget to add something special that makes you feel extra festive—then let the merrymaking begin.
BTW, you’re invited to our new arrivals party.
