Here we are at the peak of the Holiday Party season. There are so many parties to attend and so so so little time. Each party has its own feel to it, you have your casual party, fun party, and formal party. With each of these party it has its own outfit and theres nothing like the stress of feeling over or under dress. My whole take on it is I rather be over dressed then under. With that said what happens when a party falls during the work week? I know I don't like bring clothing and having to get dressed in the office, I prefer to wear what I need to go from day to night, if I can get away with it.
For a casual party that you still need to dress up for, play with fun pops of accessories. To be honest I'm head over heels in love with the Dice Kayek skirt (shown above) from the color to the bow. It has Holiday Party written all over it. There is nothing more in the Holiday season then champagne color and a bowed accessory. Even for a day time look, do play with this combo. Stores like Forever21 have a more understated and affordable bow dress (here). A bow champagne skirt can look very dressy especially for the day so play with work appropriate clothing to pair it with. Stick with the basics....then layer these basics. Pop of color with a sweater with a printed top underneath can give it another bit of flare. Top it off with a cropped blazer that will dress it up without being too much. Keep accessories simple, metallic heel like the Shoemint Joanna shoe and a simple bodycross or clutch bag.
What made me think of something like this? Well I've been wanting to pull off the navy and pink combo myself. Plus I've had this H&M bowed skirt in my closet for years and I love to pull it out especially around this time of year. For me the color and bow is just so perfect.
