5 Parties, 1 Dress: How To Accessorize For All of Your Holiday Events
Tis the season for festivities, and the only thing more daunting than tackling your lengthy shopping list is finding an outfit for your many merry-making activities. We turned to InStyle’s Executive Style Correspondent, Dana Avidan-Cohn, and the luxury jewelry experts at David Yurman to show you how one classic black dress can be transformed for any holiday event with a little accessory love.
For a modern daytime look, pair a midi-length dress with a low, sleek boot. Select a structured coat and bag to dress it down, and add a touch of gold and diamonds for a wow element.
Pair neutral, blush and gold accessories together for a romantic feel. Pull your hair back and add statement earrings and soft natural makeup.
A tuxedo-style cape with opera-length gloves is a great black-tie alternative to a dressy coat. Add a playful element, like a clutch, as a conversation piece, and don’t forget a head-turning statement necklace.
A leather jacket with a party dress feels relaxed, yet trendy, and can be worn throughout the entire night. Bring a clutch or a bag with a strap so you can be hands free to hold a drink and mingle. Incorporating a statement chain necklace is an easy way to elevate a casual look.
NEW YEAR’S EVE
Instead of over-the-top sequins, make a statement in sharply tailored black, white and silver pieces. Add a touch of sparkle with a unique bracelet and a killer pair of stilettos.
