The holidays are a time to glam it up and embrace all that sparkle you’ve secretly wanted to wear year-round. OK, maybe that’s just me, but from cocktail parties to family gatherings, this is no time to hold back! I’ve picked some unabashedly fun pieces that will help add a little razzle-dazzle to your festive fetes!
A maxi skirt is a dramatic but polished way to pull together an outfit. This fabulous Alexander Wang velvet skirt is on sale for $128 and will last you for years to come. The best thing about this look is that you can pair it with a simple white button-down shirt that you already own, add some sparkly accessories, and you’re done!
Nothing says holiday more than sequins! OK, fruit cake might, but besides that, sequins are it! I love the idea of pairing this gold pencil skirt ($69) with a plaid shirt to wear to an office party for a more wearable look!
Sometimes you just need to wear a pair of pants, and if that’s the case, make ‘em fancy! There are endless options this season with jacquard prints being all the rage. I love this pair ($70) because they have metallic detailing to make them feel a little more special. Pair them with a silk cami, blazer and sparkly earrings for a nighttime look!
OK, OK, you simply cannot talk holiday parties without a full-fledged sparkly dress! It’s a lot of look, so to keep it chic, choose one with a higher neckline and keep your jewelry simple. You may even want to try pulling your hair up into a top-knot to keep the focus on the dress. This inexpensive Zara find ($90) could work for Christmas, New Year's or both!
