When faced with your holiday gift list, entertaining, and charitable giving, the last thing you want to do is spend more money on an outfit(s) you may only wear once or twice a year. In the spirit of focusing on what’s truly important this holiday season, below are several ideas on how to dress-up one killer piece and pair it with items in your closet that you already own!
Office Party: You still want to look polished and professional with just a little more party pizazz! Add a fitted blazer (bonus points for holiday-perfect velvet) over a voluminous striped maxi skirt. Amp up the wattage with a sparkling necklace and peep-toe booties give your festive attire a little edge.
Cocktails: A chiffon skirt can easily be dressed up for cocktail hour with a sparkling belt and holiday-perfect, red pumps. Adding a classic button-down blouse neatly tucked-in makes this tuxedo-like vibe an unexpected yet totally chic combo.
belt: Anthropologie (cool also)
purse: Marc Jacobs for Target
heels: Jessica Simpson (similar, love these!)
earrings: Lucia K. Jewelry Tags
Brunch: Festive yet comfy? Double check. Layer a fitted sweater over the maxi skirt (did I mention elastic waist-band?) and add patent oxfords for a preppy, yet girlie combo perfect for brunching with your buddies.
What’s your go-to piece? What are you wearing a hundred different ways? Please leave a comment.
