What is “festive attire” anyway?

Here comes party season!  With holiday celebrations and non-stop events right around the corner, now is a great time to get everything you need to be dressed for any activity on your social calendar.  Whether you’re going to an office gathering, happy hour, or a cocktail party, I’ve got you covered for all the essential pieces you will need to look festive and stylish.

From shimmery dresses to statement jewelry to party shoes, check out these 6 easy ways to add a little sparkle and shine to your holiday repertoire.  I’ve scoured my sources for the best of the best.  Here are my top picks of the season! Enjoy!



#1 Sparkly tops

The easiest way to cheer up your favorite black skinnies is to add a sparkly top.  Throw on a cool leather jacket or a brightly colored fur, add a party shoe and be ready to get noticed at any holiday gathering!



#2 evening bags

From velvet clutches to glittery pouches, there are so many fun evening bags to choose from this season! And the best part is they are not that expensive, and they work with everything from a t-shirt and denim to a cocktail dress. Easy!



#3 party shoes

Dazzling shoes will elevate any outfit – go from safe to spectacular with a fun pair of shimmering, sequined heels. Whether it’s a shiny bootie or a glitzy high-heeled sandal, adding a party shoe to any all-black outfit will definitely brighten up the look. When January rolls around, you don’t have to put these shoes in the back of your closet for next year — simply pair them with faded denim and a white shirt with the sleeves rolled up for an effortlessly casual look.



#4 festive jumpsuits

I can’t think of an easier way to get ready in 5 minutes!! Literally throw in this one piece and you’re ready to go! Add statement earrings (see below) and a pair of heels and walk out the door. And these days the options and price points are endless … this is a must-have!



#5 statement earrings

Another quick fashion fix.  A statement earring!  From crystal to sparkly studs to black diamonds, this is an easy and inexpensive way to elevate any outfit hanging in your closet.  Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle just three days ago, wore this jewelry trend to Prince Charles birthday dinner!!



#6 holiday dresses

This the single best time to purchase a holiday dress or two. I’m talking right this minute!  The selection is at it’s best: from a classic LBD to bright pretty colors to sparkles and sequins, there’s something for everyone!  Look for dresses with a slight nod to the 70’s.
