What to Wear to Your Holiday Parties
No planning needed. Here are 7 party-ready outfits for the holidays
An open-back jumpsuit
Call on elegantly knotted straps to dress up a toned back, accented by drop earrings that follow your every move. Then practise your best-over-the shoulder selfie.
Jumpsuit, Banana Republic, $170; Earrings, Aldo, $30; Cuff, Alexis Bittar, $195; available at Holt Renfrew
The little black jumpsuit
Use refined details, like the slimmest of straps and a notched neckline, to show off hard-won triceps. And who says your party shoes have to be heels? Flats with a metallic finish are the comfy way to cut loose.
Jumpsuit, Reitmans, $85; Earrings, Zara, $18; Bracelet, Rebekah Price Designs, $195; Ring, Thomas Sabo, $449; Shoes, Aldo, $80
Glitz and glam
Tailor made to emphasize arms, sequins and pattern merge into an eye-catching tank top. This much glitz calls for almost zero jewellery – try a sleek watch to lend style cred instead.
Top, Michael by Michael Kors, $90; Pants, Gap, $70; Watch, Marc by Marc Jacobs, $270; Ring, H&M, $13; Earrings, Forever 21, $8
A belted LBD
Nothing puts the spotlight on a great waistline like a belted dress. This wrap silhouette has a modern, age-appropriate note and the fact that it’s covered in matte sequins makes it even more covetable.
Dress, Banana Republic, $240; Cuff, Expression, $25
Covetable cut outs
Revealing a sliver of mid-section is unexpectedly alluring and screams confidence. Reinforce the focus with a necklace that helps to elongate as it embellishes.
Dress, Arti Gogna, $214; Necklace, Alexis Bittar, $525, available at Holt Renfrew
A lacy number
Figure-hugging lace, and a sky-high slit, create a sexy and sophisticated combo that accentuates all your positives, especially great legs. Less is more is the best approach to accessories when wearing an ornate texture. Choose statement earrings and red carpet-worthy shoes to ace your look.
Dress, French Connection, $228; Earrings, Dannijo, $370, available at Holt Renfrew; Heels, Marshalls, $60
A sexy blouse
A cut-away blouse lets fit shoulders reign supreme. The keep the focus on you, minimize the jewellery.
Top, H&M, $55; Pants, Ted Baker London, $295; Earrings, Thomas Sabo, $264
