If you've been invited to a fancy or formal holiday party, it's possibly the one time this year where you can go all out with a sparkly, festive look. So here's my suggestion for a posh holiday gala. Cheers!
This would be a great outfit for a holiday party, or swap the black pants for jeans and add a blazer for a casual but festive night out. Swap the bandeau for a black cami if you, like me, don't like showing that much skin.
Ugly Sweater parties are all the rage for the holidays. If you're lucky enough to nab an invite, here's how to style a hideous Christmas sweater and remain (reasonably) chic. If you don't want to spend more than a few bucks on your ugly sweater, check out your local Goodwill or Salvation Army. Otherwise, here are a few websites that sell some of the ugliest of uglies:
Miranda's everyday style has been really fantastic lately - she's up there with perennial fashionistas Olivia Palermo and Rachel Bilson in my opinion. If you like her sleek coat, ripped jeans, and Valentino Rockstud pumps, here's a look for less.
Office parties are tough, because you want to look festive and stylish, but you don't want to look inappropriate by showing too much skin or by being over- or under-dressed. This outfit will work for almost any office party scenario.
Holiday parties are going to start full-swing next week, so this week, I'm putting together some outfits for any type of party, from casual to super-fancy. Today, I styled this look for a very casual holiday party - maybe at a pub, or a tree trimming party at someone's house. Leather-look leggings give the outfit an edge, but a cozy turtleneck is perfect for a winter evening. Have fun!
I wore this outfit last week when I went out to dinner with a friend. I was in the mood to wear some sparkle, but didn't really feel like getting dressed up for a casual dinner, so I dressed my sequins down by layering it over a button-down shirt (with some bling of its own), skinny jeans, and flat loafers.
I love a dude who can accessorize, so I'm really digging Kellan's casual look here.
P.S. It's a lot harder to find decent full-length candids of male celebs (the paparazzi doesn't care about them as much as the ladies), so if you find any outfits you'd like me to reproduce, email them to email@example.com, please!
If only I could look as stunning going to a business meeting as Miranda Kerr does right here. The closest match I found for Miranda's stunning white dress was almost $150, so I included some cheaper but less accurate options as well.
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that everyone gets the chance to spend their day with loved ones, stuffing their faces with yummy food. Posting is going to be light for the next couple of days, but I'll be back full swing on Monday.
It's too late to go shopping for an outfit to wear for dinner tonight, but I hope you can use this post as inspiration to put together an outfit from your own closet. Because no matter what type of Thanksgiving dinner you're attending - dressy or casual - you're going to want to be comfortable. It's an eating holiday, so stretchiness is key! A knit dress and loose cardigan is a stylish, practical solution.
