STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Red-dy For The Holidays

Style Advice of the Week

Like every year, once one holiday is over, the next one is on the shelves. As soon as Thanksgiving had ended, there was holiday music playing in grocery stores, giant ornaments arranged throughout the Prudential Center and advertisements for Christmas cookies popping up online. All of this means that people are probably beginning to think about holiday parties. I can’t deny that I love getting dressed up in sequins and deep shades of red for a good holiday party. Although getting dolled up for these types of occasions can be fun, you can also take a simpler route with the right accessories and a bold top.

Even though today’s Fashionista might not have been heading to a holiday party, her look is a great example of this simpler route I’m talking about. She has topped her dark wash skinny jeans with a red polka-dot top and an adorable red parka from Gap. Her little brown booties from Aldo go well with the shades of red and are also a must-have for the fall and winter. She has accessorized with a simple pair of gold earrings and stays warm with a white scarf.

What makes her look great for a festive party is that punch of red up top. As we all know, dark blue skinny jeans are great to take from day to night and her shoes can make that same transition. Adding some gold jewelry to the look also adds to the holiday spirit.

So now that you have some inspiration for holiday party appropriate attire, take a look at some of these tops and jackets that would be great to sport at the next soiree you attend. This sweet peplum top from Modcloth would look adorable with a burgundy sweater, a pair of skinny jeans, booties and a statement necklace. For another potential simple holiday look, you could pair this Boulevard Trench coat from J.Crew with jeans, a bold red top and gold accessories.
