Buckle up: it’s time to board the winding holiday roller coaster. You are promised ups and downs, and frankly, some moments that get a little blurry. Our December and January calendars are filling fast with work parties, family get-togethers, New Year’s parties and resolutions. Between hectic work weeks, frantic shopping, and saying R.I.P. to our restful weekends, we just don’t have time to worry about what we should wear to look and feel our best. Laugh more, stress less in our go-to holiday items below.
Pleated Dress with Rhinestone Collar
Gold metallic details make this dress a “yes, please” for all your holiday events. It features a sophisticated silhouette and a modest elasticized waistline. Better yet, the party-ready rhinestone collar makes accessorizing a thing of the past. Keep it simple in this all-inclusive holiday look.
Nine West Mini Anndi Crossbody Bag
This crossbody is declaring a fashionable New Year’s resolution – to stylishly serve you for the entire upcoming year. The classic black faux leather and gold removable chain strap make this an obvious, “yes.” Don’t forget to pack up your lipstick and keep your looks on point long after the New Year’s kiss.
High-Low Taffeta Skirt
Taffeta-style fabric puts this rich and luxurious high-low skirt at the top of our list. The box-pleated billowing design moves with you as you take your last sip and hit the dance floor. We recommend pairing it with the Isabella by ARRAY, below, to keep you moving until the music stops!
The Isabella from Array flaunts a faux suede upper and a chunky 2-3/4” block heel. Which means you can rest assured knowing you will stand in complete comfort no matter how long the party goes on. Show off this magnificent heel in a high-low skirt or a party dress to create an outstanding look.
Sequin Flutter Maxi Dress
Dressing for work parties can be a huge, messy grey area. After all, professionalism doesn’t take a break after you punch out. The Sequin Flutter Maxi Dress keeps your ensemble appropriate, but still gives you a holiday party look that gets you noticed. It features ample coverage with a subtle V-neck and side slit. Add a pop of red lipstick to complement the black, gold and silver details.
Warning: you must show off the scrolling accents and scalloped vamp of this heel at all times. Failure to do so may result in fashion abuse, a matter punishable by the Masseys decree 101. Okay, a tad exaggeration, but, seriously. Scarlet by Beacon is a breath-taking heel and rightfully so, a holiday must-have. Make this heel your statement piece and plan your outfit to accentuate it.
Moda Luxe Cleo Clutch
This clutch includes a removable, hidden shoulder strap that converts this bag into a functional crossbody. Perfect for avoiding that awkward moment at a party when you don’t know where to put your stuff down. (We’ve all been there…) Keep this gorgeous clutch on you all night long, woven vinyl and glamorous sequins bring your outfit to jealous-worthy levels.
