Hard to believe, but the holidays are nearly upon us. Aside from all of the shopping, decorating, cooking, and eating that comes with this time of year, most important is the entertaining – spending time with friends and family. And what better occasion to wear something that makes you feel fabulous? Below I’m sharing three holiday looks for different types of occasions.
Meeting Friends for Dinner
Making time for friends is always a special occasion; particularly during the holiday season, strike a festive note by adding some rich colors and special details. For example, the burgundy hue and waxed texture of the pant take your standard jeans up several notches. And, the lace detailing of the top makes the outfit more dressy. Finally, the addition of some stand-out gold jewelry creates an ensemble worthy of a special occasion.
Meeting your team for drinks after work, or celebrating in the office? Start with your standard 9-5 wear and, with a few special additions, you’ll be ready to toast a glass of champagne (or punch). It’s easy to swap your pumps for a special pair of peep-toe booties in lux suede, then add some statement earrings and a leopard-print clutch to take your look from cubicle to happy hour (even if it’s in a conference room!).
Now is the time of the year to stand-out – add shine with sequins, beading or embroidery. A holiday party is the perfect occasion for this silver, tweed-like textured, fit and flare dress. Metallic extras don’t distract from the dress; however, add a punch of color with a bold shoe. Tis’ the season!
Many of the clothes and all of the jewelry featured in this post can be found at Queen Anne Dispatch. This Friday, November 7th, they are hosting a Friends & Family shopping event from 6-10pm. If you are in the Seattle-area, stop by for small bites & drinks, a live DJ, and…20% off the entire store! In addition to the great pieces featured above, you can find fantastic gifts, cards, clothes, jewelry, home accents, and much, much more. Hope to see many of you there!
