Final Touch: How to Up Your Holiday Look
‘Tis the season of the holiday party, which means dinners and cocktail soirées have finally overshadowed dentist appointments and deadlines on your calendar. That said, it’s easy to skip the odd festive event when you’re pressed for time and can’t fit in a pit-stop home to change outfits. That’s why holiday party pros know how to create a look that’s versatile enough for the office but easy to spruce up for evening yuletide celebrations with a few key accessories.
Prior to the party, opt for an ensemble that’s feminine yet boardroom appropriate, like these dark floral pants paired with a classic beige blazer and a black sweater with an embellished collar. And when you’re ready to hit the town, just accessorize:
Glam up your look with a pair of chandelier earrings with lavish-looking costume gemstones. Leave your day purse behind and opt for a cool box clutch, like this black studded number complete with finger holes that second as rock-star rings.
Top off the look (and turn heads) by strapping on a pair of look-at-me red stilettos that transform your ensemble into a cocktail-ready fashion statement. These open-toe satin pumps might sparkle like they’re decked out in diamonds from a distance, but up close they’re unexpectedly adorned with tiny metal studs across the front strap. They’re the perfect final accessory for a girl who’s bold enough to leave her day look behind in the time it takes to text, “On my way!”
