I also wanted to help you with the all important question of “what to wear to your Holiday parties?” You may be having drinks with the girls, or maybe you need to go straight from work to a party or a festive work event. Hopefully you have a chance to go all out for a cocktail party.
If that’s the case, I have all the ideas you need to dress up any occasion right here:
Drinks with the girls or a special date night during this most festive time of year calls for some sparkle! Add that sparkle to your favorite pair of jeans, some beautiful sandals and a tuxedo style jacket. Don’t be afraid to play up your accessories from bracelets to dangling earrings or a fun clutch to add some extra pizzazz. Here, I am wearing a sequin strapless bustier style top with a tuxedo jacket. This could easily be paired with a simple skirt for day. Yes, I would wear this to work. Then, you need only change to jeans for a casual night on the town.
Maybe you need to attend a work Holiday party and though you want to be festive you don’t want to show up over dressed! The answer to this is tartan! The beautiful plaids that give that Party flare while remaining professional. These two options would be perfect for wearing to work and going straight to the party!
Hopefully you have a chance to go all out for a cocktail party. Here, I’m pulling out all the stops from velvet to sequins, pearls to rhinestones. This is a classic look that will be both beautiful and comfortable for dinner and dancing! You may be thinking you don’t want to buy these items for one party! You can also pare this velvet top with jeans for a more casual look! And if you want to play down the sequin skirt, just pare it with your tartan plaid shirt or even a red t-shirt and denim jacket.
Details on all these items will be available in the coming week on my fashion page www.finleysfivefold.com and you can always follow me on Instagram @smfinley28 for more ideas.
Here’s hoping you have a fantastic – and fashionable – holiday season!
