It’s super frustrating when you have a work holiday party coming up, and NONE of your dresses seem to be working. Trust me, I’ve been there. Last year I tried on about 5 different outfits and nothing was working. My poor husband Patrick, knew better than to try to help since I was entering “outfit meltdown” territory. It’s best to stand back when that happens.
Anyway, I’ve found the best solution is to pair something that is simple and flattering with something sparkly. For example, last year I wore a black satin skirt very similar to these:
With a tucked in silky blouse, similar to these:Banana Republic Silk Ruffle Shell
J Crew Draped Sleeve Blouse (really any color will work, I’m clearly just in a pewter kind of mood)
The added bonus is the silk blouse tucked in to the skirt really defines your waist and might make you feel more confident. Especially if you’ve entered “outfit meltdown” territory.
Then add some holiday sparkle:Nine West Escher Peep Toe (because I can’t afford the sparkly Jimmy Choos…)
And there you have it! A classic, fashion-forward, figure-flattering, holiday party outfit. Here’s to no “outfit-meltdowns” over holiday party dressing!
