 I want to give a little style inspiration for all the happenings of life. As life progresses, so should your style. I thought maybe this December, we would style for all types of holiday gatherings-- company parties at the job, relaxing with friends and family, finishing some holiday shopping or even anticipating new years. Today's look is perfect for a holiday party without much fuss.

If you are looking for comfort, fun and an understated sly, look no further. Dressing up never means anything too flashy. A well placed contrast of fabric will do the trick. I suggest metallic or velvet this season like this outfit's focal point-- the metallic skirt. It moves easily, is a touch of glam and easy to style. I decided to style with classic black because nearly everyone has black and with an already established focal piece, you can afford to keep it simple.

When styling metallics, go for simplicity and texture. The combo is sure to always make an impact. It's a matter of keeping it simple while keeping functionality in mind. Thats why I paired a costume ring and necklace. Nothing too fussy. The heels are of course optional. If you want to be on trend a mule or embellished loafer would also work.  So when you're eyeing the snack table at the office party, or the desert table at the family Christmas dinner, sashay a little harder and give everyone a show. :c)

 

Ciao for now
