Entrance-Making, Head-Turning Fashion For All Those Festive Fêtes

With New Year’s Eve fast approaching, and a slew of parties behind us, we’re not only providing tips, tricks, and possibilities for what might be your biggest party of the year—we’re also giving you options for festive fêtes to come. 

What we’re most into now and for the year ahead: pairing party looks with winter white. The important add-on here? Just be sure to add an element of sparkle.

Another recipe for party perfection? We believe there’s nothing more impactful than the combination of a killer dress and shoe. We’re talking entrance-making, head-turning, memorable looks that are twice as nice because they make it just so easy to get dressed. There’s not much more needed when you’ve got a statement shoe and dress waiting to be teamed up and worn together.

If you don’t own one already, a smaller or evening bag in black is well worth the investment. It’s absolutely essential to have a great one on hand not only because it will be your grab and go for nearly any formal occasion, but it will be a lifesaver for those times when you need to dress up a pair of jeans or any number of other outfits than need a bit of help feeling more special. There’s nothing worse than pairing your big slouchy hobo with a dressier look because you will have literally killed all your effort to “step it up” with this choice in accessory. A rule to remember when getting gussied: it’s in the details.

Another important piece for your closet? A special shirt, an embellished blouse. Another great trick for getting formal fast: we call it "party on the top". By adding black capris, a wide leg trouser, a pencil skirt—you can be party ready in minutes.

Two other items we count on when we’re feeling festive? A great pair of earrings is our choice in jewelry not only because statement earrings are having a moment right now but because they add instant impact by lighting up the face and drawing attention to makeup in the form of a bold or glossy lip, or shadowed, lashed, and lined eye. Also: don’t overlook the evening coat or jacket. Many of us stock our closets with outerwear that provides warmth from the cold, but please pay attention to the fancier options on the rack. A coat with ruffles and beading, in satin or sequins, fur trim or dramatic lapel-- can add a wonderful extra touch to full-on formal, totally elevate a look made up of basics, and provide a solution for another fashion don’t: throwing a sporty coat or jacket on over a look that says luxe. -TR
