With the holiday season quickly among us, you know what that means… Holiday Parties. Either you love or you hate holiday parties. I love them because you get to dress up in your best holiday outfit and see friends you haven’t seen in a while. It’s also fun to be in a festive environment! If you’re not like me, and dread these annual events, you probably struggle with what to wear. Ditch the basic black dress this year and jazz up your holiday outfit with 5 simple steps.
A killer holiday outfit: Whether it’s a dress, pants and a top or a jumpsuit. Every good holiday look starts with the outfit. I love dresses at much as the next girl, but this sequin crop top and high-waisted pants are a fun choice that’s also a little warmer.
Comfortable shoes: You’re going to be on your feet all night, let’s face it. While you may want to break out your heels, it may be best to wear some velvet ballet flats or sequin loafers. I’m wearing some basic black pumps that I know I can wear for hours with no problem. Be smart with your holiday outfit. Your feet will thank you in the long haul!
A crossbody bag: I would say carry a clutch at your holiday event but let’s be real. It’s annoying having to hold it while holding drinks and shaking hands. I prefer carrying a crossbody bag so I can put my phone, keys, lipstick and business cards in it and not have to hold anything. This also saves you from putting your clutch down and forgetting it!
Festive makeup: I normally keep my makeup neutral but for a holiday event, I like to spice it up. Here I added a little purple to my eyes and added some false lashes for some drama. You could also do a bold lip!
Amazing accessories: Every girl needs a little bling to complete a holiday outfit. I didn’t have anything that I thought would go with my sequin crop top so I headed to my local Macy’s to find a statement piece to complete my holiday ensemble. I looked at necklaces and earrings until I wandered over to the watch counter.
It was here I found the perfect accessory! This 4-piece Rose gold tone watch and bracelet set from Anne Klein. It includes 1 bracelet watch with mother of pearl dial and 3 bracelet/bangles all featuring unique designs and Swarovski crystals. This is the perfect option since you can wear the bracelets together or mix and match. Anne Klein watches come in a variety of different shapes, sizes, colors and materials – to fit any woman’s fashion needs.
The Anne Klein box sets from Macy’s feature a watch and bracelet combo that make for beautiful arm candy and an easy and affordable way to accessorize any wardrobe. Box sets are perfect for anyone who wants to take part in the current jewelry stacking trend but is unsure how to pair pieces or simply doesn’t have the time to think about it.
