It’s holiday season, so we’re pretty sure your calendar is full with after-work events. Without much time to do a total makeover as you zip from the office to the party, how do you come up with an outfit that strikes the balance between work appropriate and cocktail-ready? Pro-tip: Work on the basics first then take it from there. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Dress up that pencil skirt.


A pencil skirt that falls below your knees is work appropriate and glamorous enough for a party if you style it the right way. We recommend going out of your comfort zone here with a leatherette piece, matched with either a cozy pullover in a festive burgundy shade or a fringed camisole and a blazer. Accessorize with a cocktail ring, a lariat and strappy heels, and you’re good to go.

Be the lady in red.

Nothing says "Merry Christmas!" quite like a little red dress. You can match it with a denim or leather jacket to make it look more casual during the day. In the evening, simply wear sparkly chandelier earrings for a party-ready getup. You might even want to change your hairstyle into a messy bun for a different look – the better to show off that bling!

Tailored to perfection.


Anything tailored looks good 24/7. Whether it’s at the conference room or at the hottest night club. Build your outfit around a crisp, tailor-fitted blazer or jacket and a pair of sleek cigarette pants or carefree culottes for a chic, sophisticated look.
