Friday Favorites

Only a few weeks left until Christmas!  This week, I’ve gathered a few of my favorite looks for Christmas and New Years Eve parties.

This dress from Nordstrom is perfect for a dressier holiday party.  The embellished neckline saves you from having to purchase a statement necklace, too.  I would pair it with strappy heels in silver or black.  I would add a cocktail ring and keep the rest of my jewelry simple.

I love winter whites and this dress falls directly into that category.  This Banana Republic dress is such a transitional piece.  It can be easily dressed up or down and I would wear it year round.  For a fancier event, I would pair it with a pair of patent heels and add a bold statement necklace.  For a casual event, I would wear it with a pair of casual ankle boots and add my favorite scarf to finish the look.

For a classic look, I would pair this velvet J.Crew skirt with a clean white Oxford shirt.  Add a pair of metallic silver pumps and you’re all set for a festive holiday party.  I could also see this skirt paired with a fitted bright plaid button up shirt.  Think reds or whites with navy or dark green accents.

These Sam Edelman stilettos are the perfect shoe to dress up any holiday outfit.  They can easily be paired with a skirt or jeans, making them versatile.  They are studded, but don’t let that deter you.  They would add a subtle pop, but wouldn’t become the main focus of your outfit.

This Topshop ring at Nordstrom is a great statement piece.  When wearing a statement piece, I would keep the rest of my jewelry simple.  This ring could be worn with jeans to dress up the outfit or with a fancy party dress.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!  Has anyone found any great pieces that they’ve worn to a holiday party, yet?

  1. Love that ring! I wasn’t wild about the black skirt at first glance, but your suggestion of a nice, crisp white shirt w/ the silver shoes and jewelry would really dress it up. Great idea!! I got a great statement necklace from BR that I’m wearing tonight to dress up a simple cocktail dress…that’s my find for the holidays so far.
