A black dress is especially nice if you have to go to a party straight from the office. You don’t have to worry about having to take another outfit to change into. Just wear to work with a blazer and shed the blazer for the party. Then add some fun statement jewelry like this fun sparking collar necklace.Screen Shot 2016-12-12 at 1.59.43 PM

There is no better time than the holidays to pull out your sequins and metallic pieces that you already have in your closet. Whether you go head-to-toe shimmer or just a little touch here or there, you are sure to look great!

You can do a top that can be worn to both work and your party, or you can do a top that is more of a statement. Velvet is big this season, and we love this velvet Alice + Olivia top. It’s the perfect piece for a holiday party outfit.

However, we couldn’t leave out the Ugly Christmas Sweater parties, as several of us will be invited to at least one of these fun events this year. The great thing about an Ugly Christmas Sweater party is that you really don’t have to sweat your look. The uglier…the better! Don’t have an ugly sweater or don’t have time to go digging for the perfect one at Goodwill? No problem. This season several retailers are carrying their own version. This beauty can be found at Belk.
