The Holiday season for me is a time to glam it up. From fierce make-up to metallics. It's the time of the season you get to have fun with materials that you don't really wear much during the year (aka sequins!).
Formal Holiday Party
The Dress. Go glam for a formal party. I love playing with volume. If you go for a tulle skirt dress make sure it has a grown up twist like a deep neckline and back, like this Alice + Olivia dress. Black is always in season, but for the holidays play with something that has a hint of metallic in it.
The Shoes. If you do a black dress go bold with a metallic shoe. Play with different colors. I love this berry red color from Gianvito Rossi. Metallic shoes will make the whole look pop and give it that festive Holiday vibe.
The Clutch. When doing a statement piece like the dress and shoes go for simple handbags that have a interesting structure detail like this ASOS clutch. It's sleek but still interesting.
The Accessories. Keep all accessories clean and simple. Try a modern take on pearls like this Kate Spade bangle. Play with layering rings to make a understated statement.
The Make-up. For a formal night time event breakout the deep red lipstick. You want a lipcolor that has more of darker undertones, like hues of blues and purples, that give it a more deep rich color. Do golden smokey eyes to elegantly match your metallic pieces.
Casual Dinner Party
The Shoes. Have fun with printed pumps. A leopard print pump like these Steve Madden pumps can show off your wild side.
The Bag. You can use your favorite everyday little handbag or add in colors like this burgundy color bag from Charles & Keith.
The Make-up. You know me...I love a good cat eye. My go to liquid eyeliner is Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner in black. It's easy to use, allows you to play with the thickness of the line, and the brush doesn't split! Play with a fun cat eye paired with a red lip. This red lip color can be bolder and brighter since it's an informal occasion. Plus, it will brighten up the face against the black eyeliner.
The Office Party
The Shoes. Pumps, every office girls favorite pair of shoes. They are perfect to have around in your closet for a everyday look, as well as a night time look. Pair your little black pump with your dress.
The Bag. Whether you do a LBD or something in champagne make your accessories pop. Add in a colorful bag like this cobalt blue suede bag from Karen Millen. This blue will make a nice juxtaposition against the champagne color.
The Accessories. Play off the color of your handbag. If doing a blue handbag do a blue earring, like these Kate Spade small square earrings. This will help tie the whole look together. Add a sleek rose gold watch to compliment the dress.
The Make-Up. Since it's an office party keep the make-up minimal. Do neutral eyes, you can even do a smokey eye with brown tones. You can use palettes like Urban Decay's Naked 2. Stay away from fire engine red lipstick. Play with light shades of pinks. Look for something that has a hint of shimmer in it like the Laura Mercier in Rosewater.
