Holiday parties are the perfect reason to dress up. However, it can be a bit challenging to put together a scene-stealing ensemble when you have to go from work, or spending the day raising a family, to a stylish soiree. Many holiday parties take place on an evening during the week, leaving us with very little time to put together something cute. What’s a busy lady to do? Well, that’s where the classic LBD, a pair of black tights, and simple pump shoes come to the rescue.
A little black dress, black opaque tights, and classic black shoes give you a nice clean canvas to play with. From there, you can accessorize to make the look snazzy and impressive.
I’m a big fan of relying on scarves and shawls to keep me looking unique. I opt for something bright, allowing me to compete with the Christmas tree. But, a scarf in a jewel tone can look really classy, too. Plus, layering gives your outfit depth, making it more appealing to the eye.
I love to belt scarves. Doing so accomplishes two things: it creates a waistline and gives the scarf the appearance of a vest. Overall, it just adds interest to your holiday outfit.
Opaque tights not only keep your legs warm on a cold day, but when you pair them with a shoe in the same color, you actually elongate the leg. This is a major benefit for those of us who are on the petite side.
So go easy on yourself this holiday season and keep your holiday outfit of the day simple by sticking with an LBD, black tights, and black heels. Then lavish your look with accessories to make you stand out. Play with colors and don’t forget to accentuate your waist with a dashing belt. Voila! You’re ready to show off your holiday style. Now, be sure to Instagram your stunning look.
