It's that time again. Time to a firm up a solid holiday-party outfit. Sure, you could throw on the little lace something that's occupied your closet for a decade. Or! You could go all out in a pair of sequined pants. To keep you from spiraling into a how-do-I-wear-that?
MIX SPARKLES WITH SWEATERS
It's all about mixing textures, folks. Go for the unexpected in a pair of shimmery trousers, a relaxed knit sweater and a crisp blazer.
PAIR METALLIC PANTS WITH SILKY TOPS
Really, anything shiny wins. Temper the rest of the outfit with a dark draped blouse and minimal heels.
ADD A POP OF SPARKLE TO ALL WHITE
If your style is more about shine in moderation, go for an ethereal monochromatic look. Say, white palazzo pants and a half-tucked slouchy sweater, topped off with a punchy clutch.
COUPLE PLAID WITH FAUX FUR
Plaid is rad. Especially when topped with the coziest-ever coat and accented by sharp patent-leather heels.
GIVE CULOTTES A CHANCE
Is that a skirt?! Nope. Keep it comfy with this style--just balance it with a little sparkle up top and a flash of color on the bottom.
Borrow from the boys. Go bold. Own the party.
OR (JUMP)SUIT UP
An entrance-making one-piece is never not a good idea. This little number is by Valentino (sigh), but anything with a sleek cut and a pop of color works.
