When it comes to holiday attire, there are a few things I consider when selecting a new party dress or outfit, the first being that it or its pieces can be worn separately many more times combined with other classic items in my wardrobe as another outfit. I always look for quality over quantity. I'd rather invest in one timeless little black dress vs. three cheaper, trendier ones just for the sake of variety. For that reason, I still have favorites in my wardrobe from even a decade ago that I still receive compliments on to this day.
Holiday wear doesn't need to be reserved only for a festive work party, New Year's Eve celebration or a Christmas service at church, done right, these pieces in the classic gold, silver and black can be worn a multiplicity of ways throughout the winter months, that is the key in getting more value for your investment.
I came across this great ensemble below in Real Simple magazine that I wanted to share with you all because I truly like each and every one of these pieces as well as the created outfits because they are elegant, classic and created in timeless colors, not to mention modest which is a must have for every classy woman.
The article is all about how to turn 7 pieces into 5 different outfits. Perfect for taking you through not only the holiday season but beyond! Any of these outfits would work for Valentine's Day too (especially the silver dress), who says you have to wear red. ;) Given that these are all on the dark side, they providing a slimming effect too, which is especially helpful during a season that's filled with dinner parties, baked goodies and other fun treats. I've taken the liberty of including the links to each item for you below along with the coordinating accessories, should you want to make of these outfits your very own! :)
Apparel Source: (1) Green silk blouse
(6) Black velvet tuxedo jacket (on sale 50% off right now with code: HOLIDAY)
Accessories Source: (1) Statement necklace -sold out (I like this one even more)
These all personally represent my own sense of style. I prefer classic, tailored pieces with a few accessories for some extra pop, a well-selected shade of red nail polish is the perfect finishing touch!
I hope these have given you some inspiration as you create your own holiday looks.Which piece or outfit here best represents your holiday style best?
