December is the month of holiday parties. Weekend after weekend there is something going on (not that we’re complaining)! With a mix of cocktail parties, work parties, pot lucks and everything in between we found 2 outfits that will cover them all.
This casual look is sophisticated but still fun – perfect for a work gathering or potluck. The silk top pairs well with pretty much anything, so it’s worth the investment, and the color is perfect for fall and winter. The bright cords will make this outfit more playful, and flats keep it casual and easy to get around. Side note: I own these flats and they might be the most complimented item of footwear I own. And they’re comfy too! Anyway, since this outfit is very simple, play up the clutch and/or jewelery. We went with arm candy, but it could easily handle a chunky necklace instead.
The glam look uses this dress as the centerpiece. This is definitely more for the cocktail party or fancy dinner, but it’s still work appropriate and you’ll feel very classy in it. We’ve targeted this look more towards the icy blues and greys that are popular at the moment, but it could easily be toned down with more navy to go for something more monochromatic. And again since this dress speaks for itself, we kept it pretty bare with the jewelry, but if you skipped the belt you could add a really blingy necklace.
