It’s only the beginning of December, but your calendar is already filled to the brim with holiday parties. You’ve purchased the perfect gift for the hostess (or host). Now, it is time to select the appropriate outfits to wear to each event. I say let’s break out the sequins and the shine.

The Office Holiday Soiree

My favorite color green, sequins and a peplum…sold. This top can easily be paired with your favorite black pencil skirt to form a polished yet festive ensemble. The deep shade of the sequins keeps the shimmer tame for the office holiday shindig.

The Dinner Party With Friends

There is nothing I love more, during the holiday season, than gathering with friends over a good meal to celebrate another wonderful year of friendship and fun.

Slip on a pair of red satin pants and layer on a shimmery jacquard top to add texture. Put on the fancy new shoes you purchased during Cyber Monday (you just couldn’t help it) and pile on the fun jewelry. It’s time to celebrate!

The Cocktail Party

Black and gold are two of my favorite color combinations. The minute I spotted this dress, I knew it needed to be taken out for a spin. The sequin brocade design is sleek and sophisticated, which makes it the perfect cocktail party frock. It doesn’t call for a lot of accessories, so simple sapphire studs provide the perfect pop of color.
