4 Must-Have Holiday Pieces

4 Must-Have Holiday Pieces


PARTY A top can be tucked in if the skirt has a high waist (otherwise the fabric balloons over). Finish with a sleek clutch and sparkling heels.

WORK Belting the waist emphasizes the shoulders to create a traditional “power suit” silhouette out of an unstructured vest and ankle-length trousers.

WEEKEND An understated military-esque cardigan is the bridge between a fancy silky shirt and casual skinny jeans, keeping the overall effect playful.

PARTY A silver lame top and strappy pewter heels not only look opulent, they lighten up the dark, solid color of the pants.

WORK The silk top has a flowy feeling, but the structured bag and tailored jacket prevent the overall silhouette from seeming too casual.

WEEKEND These loose pants could look like PJs if worn with just a tee. Layering a jacket and button-down is an easy, polished way to complete the ensemble.
