How To: Play off of the key colors of the holiday that you are dressing for. For example, if you are going to a Christmas office party or family get together try wearing a red or green blouse. Opt for a more professional bottom like black skinny trousers or skinny khakis. This would also be an opportune time to try on a pair of leather pants! Make the look cohesive with classy jewelry and a cute pair of shoes.
