The key to being stylish is being unpredictable, whether you’re at the office party or a friend’s holiday shindig. Being unpredictable doesn’t mean dressing like someone else. It means you avoid the drab, campy, overworked holiday costume of years past. This year, you should stand out… in the right ways.
I’ve put together a few ideas that will bring a little whimsy to your next holiday function.
Skip the red and green. Stick to black and white.
Flip a Classic.
Whether it's your mother's pearls or a vintage brooch, it can be incorporated into your outfit in a fun, exciting way.
Bring the Bling.
This is the only time of the year when tacky can turn chic. Embrace it. Costume jewelry is the perfect touch for any party look that A. won't burn a hole in your pocket and B. gets you in the mood to celebrate.
Dress Up Your Denim.
Denim can be worn to many semi-formal occasions as long as you follow one rule: The denim cannot be the star.A subtle dark blue or black denim paired with vibrant heels or a sequin sweater allows you to be comfortable and edgy while chatting around the punch bowl.
