Wear Me: The Perfect Holiday Outfit

Holiday party season is in full effect, and if you’re stumped when it comes to finding the perfect outfit and usually end up in the all too typical ill fitting, satiny finish, un-original “party” dress, please look no further. Many girls flock towards tight, glitzy and mini for their go-to outfit, especially for NYE parties, this is where you need to look at last year’s photos, put on your best judgmental look and REFLECT. It’s a common mistake to go for an overwhelming amount of glitz and glam, but many can’t seem to get that look right either because it’s over done, over the top, or simply – OVER.

A little bit of “to the nines” is beyond appropriate for this season but ensure it’s balanced. A sequined skirt with a pajama blouse, suede booty shorts with a graphic tee and fitted blazer. An 8 inch heel with cropped tuexedo pants, a white t and a statement necklace or a flattering dress with lace, sequin, or embellished details. These all have one thing in common – balance.

Some of the most popular themes this party season are tomboy glam, bombshell, femme and boho. I’ve compiled a bit of a list of my favorite items fitting into these categories below. I have my eye on the For Love & Lemons Curtsey Lace Dress. Wildfox sequined maxi and the Club Monaco Alexis Feather mini. Too bad I can’t layer them all. Or will I? Stay tuned.

Which look will you be wearing?
