The holidays are just around the corner and not only are you gearing up for sales and putting together your Christmas list but your best friend’s getting married around the same time. Don’t have the right outfit? Don’t fret! Holiday parties and weddings follow a very similar formula: go glam and super sophisticated.
Turn heads at your friend’s wedding in strong hues like cobalt blue or shine bright in a sequin frock. The key with holiday dressing is going big with your statement pieces. This means having beautiful jewelry, clutches and heels handy. Here are three ideas that I’ve come up with to get you started!
Go girly in a satin TopShop dress paired with $187 jeweled Badgley Mischka platforms (on sale!). Take the look to the next level with a $37 TopShop statement necklace and Kotur clutch. Keep with jewel theme going with a purple mani and my new favorite lip stain by Lip Tar.
