As a belated birthday gift, my mother in law took me shopping and I found a glittery and glamorous navy sequin dolman top from Jennifer Lopez’s new line for Kohl’s. During the holidays, I decided I would maximize my purchase wear it to every Christmas party I attended, and found ways to wear it differently each time.
Party #1: Tim’s Work Christmas Party
Since the party was a business casual dress code, I paired the sequin top with a black pencil skirt, black tights, black ankle strap shoes and simple black pearls for earrings for a more conservative look.
Party #2: My Work Christmas Party
The best accessory I have is this dapper husband of mine on my arm, wearing a custom suit by Beckett & Robb. For take 2, I paired the sequins with Banana Republic fitted black slacks, Etienne Aigner black heels and drop Swarovski earrings I crafted on the way out the door… causing us to be an hour late. Fashionably.
Party #3: Alta Moda Holiday Party
Every year the folks at Alta Moda Bridal throw a holiday party that’s easily the social event of the season. This year was no different. White slacks were added to the mix for rave reviews.
Party #4: Going Away Party
The most creative combination and quite possibly my favorite of the lot, I wore sequins with this floral skirt by Shade and taupe heels for our farewell party.
Sure, it’d be fun to have different outfits to wear to every party during the holidays, chances are you won’t see the same people at each party.
The lesson? With a little creativity, one piece can go a long way.
