Holiday Party Fashion

I’ve been feeling very festive, so I thought I would round up a few of my favorite party looks. These are ones I’ve definitely rocked this season and my New Year’s Eve look is even included below (dress, shoes and beauty stuff included)…I like to make the most of my formal wear–feel free to guess.

Sequins just scream “celebrate” to me—and if I’m being 100% honest I sometimes even sneak them into my everyday work wardrobe so I’m definitely biased, (oh and if you’re looking to try that out I love the way French Connection and JCrew add evening embellishments to everyday pieces). These dresses show off shine in a variety of colors, cuts and styles and you can layer them with a blazer, wrap, moto-style jacket, or cardi.

Nails are a quick way to add polish (cute-pun, right) to your look. I usually go dark in the winter, but I’m loving a white-ish color on oval shaped nails that is all over the place right now. That said, a girl needs options, and I sometimes take my pinky or ring ring and add sparkle to that digit and make it “special.”

If I have a lot going on the bod, I try to keep the face simple and sweet. To me, that means a nude and neutral eye, a simple black liner and a bold lip. I’m really into berry hues, especially for holiday and any applicator that gives me more control is a plus too.

For me, the final touches are the most fun–the bag and the shoes. I’m enjoying shooties,(shoes+boots) and platforms with hardware especially for winter glamour, and hard shell evening bags.
