Parties, parties, parties! ‘Tis the season for holiday occasions, whether they’re family dinners, black-tie affairs, or office celebrations. But what does the FashioNitsa wear for all these events? Unless it’s an ugly sweater party, she does not pull out the Rudolph-and-Frosty-bedecked knitwear. Read on for our favorite looks this holiday season.
Look #1: Office Holiday Party
Company parties can be very risky, and not just from a fashion perspective. The trick is to be celebratory but still professional, both in terms of behavior and in terms of dress. Since many holiday parties start right after work, you can find a great solution with Nitsa’s specialty day-into-night outfits and dresses. To transition seamlessly from work into the evening event, bring some bling to amp up your work outfit. Shine, which is always popular at the holidays, is especially strong this year. Try shoes, a bag, or a scarf embellished with glitter to keep your look professional but still fun.
Look #2: Festive Casual
Get-togethers with family and friends are rarely formal affairs, but the holidays call for some sense of occasion and fun. Nitsa’s recommendation: start with a pair of our on-trend jeans, and build the rest of your outfit around this casual base. Jewel tones are often flattering around the face and are especially hot this season. Metallics give a real sense of occasion, as do a pair of glam shoes or a jeweled clutch.
Look #3: Formal or Black Tie
Whether it’s a winter wedding or a glittering New Year’s Eve party, a formal party is the time to pull out all the stops. If you’re feeling daring, you can go full-length and unleash your inner diva, or go for slightly less formality with the perfect cocktail dress. This season, icy pastels are dominating the runways, but if that doesn’t suit your skin tone, you can always go deep with beautiful jewel tones. This time of year, emerald and ruby are especially popular, but not together!
