Every time you open your mailbox these days, you’re probably swamped with stacks of catalogs (that usually all end up in the recycle bin), a handful of holiday cards, and invitations to a parties for every night from now until New Year’s Eve. With so many parties, we need outfits. Below we styled three dresses to guide you through your holiday parties of 2013.
When headed to a work or business holiday party, it is always a smart choice to wear an understated outfit with added pops of color. We just love this dress that we found at Kayce Hughes and can imagine wearing it all winter long. It is structured, but stretchy, so no matter if you have been indulging in cocktails and dessert all week, you will look and feel pulled together. And we think the red accessories just look festive and fun against a neutral palate.
Haven Dress from Kayce Hughes $258. Heart Knot Necklace from Kayce Hughes $88. Waterfall Leather Jacket from Nordstrom $298. Spanx “Tight-End Tights” $28. Black Booties from Hemline $150. Butter Nail Lacquer in “Come to bed red” available at Woo Skincare and Cosmetics and Wender and Roberts $15. Judith Bright Wire Wrapped Cuff $378. Marc by Marc Jacobs Crossbody flap bag from Nordstrom $298.
Next we have a beautiful, but simple cocktail party dress from Poppy’s of Atlanta. You can wear this dress over and over again just by changing up the accessories. And since Atlanta is often to warm for a heavy coat we’ve added this beautiful, cashmere wrap to keep you cozy, but not hot.
Red dress (also available in winter white) from Poppy’s of Atlanta $299. Round Druzy and Gemstone Necklace from Huff Harrington Home $182. Cashmere Ruffled Wrap from Poppy’s of Atlanta $378. Simone Etch Print Haircalf Clutch from Elaine Turner $375. Jimmy Choo Wedge from Emly Benham $625. Jimmy Choo Kitten Heel from Emly Benham $595. Erin Bracelet from Elaine Turner $198. Muleberry Leather and Cashmere Gloves from Net-a-Porter $320.
Now this outfit is just FUN! Perfect for your best friend’s gathering or any evening that ends with you and Mariah singing “All I Want for Christmas is You.” We paired a gorgeous, flattering dress from Morgan Kylee with fun accessories and a not so traditional pair of heels that we think are perfect.
Black and White Shift Dress from Morgan Kylee $545. Arabella Earrings from Calypso St. Barth $545. Striped Scarf from Morgan Kylee $368. Judith Bright Lot’s o’ Rocks Ring $198. Bamboo Cuff from Kayce Hughes $138. Leoprad Clutch from Kayce Hughes $88. Mya Pump from Nordstrom $124.95
Cheers to a happy, party-filled holiday season!
