Last week we brought you The Perfect Little Black Dress for your holiday parties. This week we bring you all of the accessories to go with your LBD! The idea behind the perfect LBD is that you can dress it up or down, depending upon the occasion. Therefore, we bring you complete outfits for three different holiday party scenarios; the formal holiday party, the less formal holiday cocktail, and dinner at home with friends and family.
The Formal Holiday Party
Go for glamour here! Add a fur stole (faux or real) to your long sleeve dress to have the best of both worlds, warmth and beauty. Read this blog post for more ideas about how to wear a fur stole. To keep the all-black outfit interesting, add patterned tights and a touch of emerald with your accessories. The icing on the cake? These gorgeous gold Valentino heels will have your toes looking like little presents. Or if you decide to keep it simple, stick with the black pumps that you already own.
This outfit is guaranteed to dazzle your fellow cocktail guests. The sequined blazer is not only the perfect statement piece, it’s the perfect price! Go for color with a bold statement earring and matching shoes or stick with modern metallic. I received these fabulous Jeweliq blue vintage deco drops as a birthday gift last week. I’ll have to get my wear of them in the next few weeks because I don’t think they will match the nursing pajamas I will be sporting 24/7 for the month of December! The LBD in this look is stretch cotton, leaving lots of room for holiday treats…And is this not the BEST holiday party clutch EVER?
When you’re eating Thanksgiving dinner, you’re going to want a comfortable dress with lots of stretch! Add a cashmere cardigan and gold necklace for an easy but put-together look. The ABS By Allen Schwartz evening bag is a great value for your money. A client of mine has already worn it to a recent black tie event. It looks really expensive in person! Add a heel or a comfy boot, your choice.
