Holiday Style Scoop
Yes, ladies, once again we are in the throes of the festive season, every fashion-lover’s dream month. From office parties to evening get-togethers to family dinners to gala events, you finally get the chance to drag out the dynamite looks you’ve been building all fall. But what to wear where?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: holiday clothing can be divided into two easy categories. 1) Clothes you can wear in front of your grandmother, and 2) clothes you shouldn’t wear in front of your grandmother. Whether because they’re a little too revealing (“Put on a sweater, dear, you’ll catch your death”) or because they’re just way outside her learning curve (“Oh, is that how the youngsters are wearing their trousers these days?”), some outfits should be shelved until you’re with your friends.
With that qualifier in mind, and the knowledge that F/W 09/10 has a fairly limited color palette, filling in the blanks becomes a breeze. Shall we?
Work Party: You’re treading a fine line here. You don’t want to look overdone (and everyone talks fordays about that one woman who crosses the line every year), but you want to look festive so the higher-ups don’t think you’re a stiff. Take your lovely heathery suit, the one with the nipped jacket and pencil skirt, and trade your usual high-necked blouse or turtleneck sweater for a sparkly embellished tank for some softness. Keeping the color palette neutral will show off your sophisticated side. Shed the opaque tights and show off last weekend’s pedicure in a suede platform sandal. Pull your soft leather clutch out of your daytime tote, hang those great dangly earrings, and polish your makeup with plum smoked eyes and sheer pink gloss. Grandma approval factor: high, but with a raised eyebrow.
Cocktails With Friends: Think chic. Velvet stovepipes with the sparkly tank from your office party and killer pumps will fit the bill, or how about a sweet silk dress with a cardigan belted over, dark tights and stiletto sh’booties? This season’s ubiquitous black and grey work really well here with a pop of color and texture from accessories, like this sassy statement necklace. Grandma approval factor: medium.
Family Holiday Dinner: Go for classic and elegant. Wide wool trousers with a cashmere turtleneck or a pretty silk blouse and sequined ballet flats strike the perfect note. A tunic sweater tops slim ankle pants and skimmers. Or try a sweaterdress with tights and high boots, accessorized with a great hip-slung belt or a one-of-a-kind necklace. The point is to look festive and special without Aunt Debbie’s blatant aesthetic abuse of the holiday sweater. Grandma approval factor: high.
Neighborhood Get-Together: This is the perfect showcase for the luscious velvet blazer, sparkle-embellished tee and your dress-up jeans. Gorgeous stack-heeled boots will give your stems some length but offer enough insulation so you can walk home when the party ends. Or rock your big fuzzy tunic sweater over skinny jeans, add a long chain necklace and finish with those embellished flats.. Grandma approval factor: medium
Great Big Holiday Gala Fete: Here’s your chance to rock the house, ladies! Grab your favorite trend and go for it. Skin is in: pick your favorite body part and highlight it. Legs for miles? Choose a mini tunic dress in sleek silk. Great rack? Show it off with a strapless sheath or a deep-v with a sizzle. Dynamite arms? Cutaway tanks are Mrs. O’s go-to shape, and they’ll work for you, too. Jewel-toned cocktail dresses with black tights and platforms are de rigueur at any formal gathering, or blaze a trail and go with a sleek halter jumpsuit (black, of course) with a sparkly sandal. I’m loving the one-shoulder silhouette, too, as it leans and lengthens the torso; embellishment on everything helps streamline accessories decisions. Grab a ruffly clutch, a rich topper, and you’re gone. Grandma factor: pushing it.
New Year’s Eve Throwdown: A hopping room full of sleek partygoers means the sky’s the limit. Sexy top with shredded cigarette jeans and platforms? Sure thing. Silk caftan mini and shiny leggings with peep-toe booties? Absolutamente. (Just make sure you get dropped off at the curb; slush + peep-toes = ick.) Sequined t-shirt dress with an armful of bangles and Posh-Spice-y pumps? Definitely. Grandma factor: oh, who cares? She’s in bed by now anyway.
As ambassadresses for style, you’re duty-bound to shine your sartorial light wide this season. So go forth and dazzle, my little sugar plums! And remember: your most scintillating accessories are your winning personality and your glittering smile.
