Stumped about what to wear to your next holiday shindig? Not for long! A timeless red sweater and a flirty feather skirt is always a good idea.
If you want to dress to impress, this statement skirt is a great place to start. In black, it's simple enough (and super versatile), yet its soft, unique texture makes it completely one-of-a-kind...and a real show stopper at that. Even better, it's perfect for twirling! So instead of reaching for your tried-and-true black pencil skirt next time, opt for something a little more fun. This skirt is 100 percent party approved!
A red sweater is a no-fail option for the holidays. They're forever festive and can easily be glammed up with the help of a sparkly statement necklace. I love this one because it's cropped, which makes it the perfect partner for all of my skirts.
Say goodbye to your boring black pumps and hello to these spotted beauties! Still just as practical and basic as your go-to heels, these shoes are way more exciting and cute. After all, nothing says "I'm ready to party" more than a bold polka dotted print, am I right?
Sticking with my theme of not-so-basic black pieces, this clutch is super versatile but still incorporates some individuality with these gold flecks. For the holidays, it's an easy choice - especially when I'm rocking golden arm candy!
This collar necklace from Madewell offers a whole lot of sparkle without overwhelming my outfit. It's dainty yet impactful, and it doesn't hurt that I always get compliments when I wear it! It truly looks like a vintage piece your grandmother would own.
Simple black studs paired with gold bars create an effortless, mix-matched look that's elegant and youthful.
You're going to see me wearing a lot of variations of the red lip this season; and for good reason! There's nothing more festive than a bold pout, and in cherry red, you'll be totally holiday-ready...even if you're wearing all black! But above all, I LOVE matching my lips to my clothing.
See? I told you this skirt was fun to twirl in! It certainly makes quite an entrance, don't you think?
