    9-5 To Nighttimeů How To Get 24-Hour Holiday Style

    How To Get 24-Hour Holiday Style

    Worse off, there’s the lot that thinks "festive dress" means donning a sweater festooned with three-dimensional characters, glowing snowflakes, and Santa and his helpers leaping off their chest in a frenetic statement that screams, "I’m wearing this stupid sweater because I have no clue about style!"


    All you need to do is add an element of formal to everyday clothing to master 24-hour holiday style. I’ve been inspired by something that Sarah Jessica Parker wore the other night as a panelist on The Art of Creation- rich red velvet blazer, white skinny t-shirt, black cigarette capris, and fabu heels. Basta! Clean tailored lines, simple color palette, non-fussy dressy details mixed with everyday styleů there you have it, 9 to 5 to nighttime chic.

    Casual, understated classics cut in simple of-the-moment silhouettes are easier to style-up than something that’s overly complicated or embellished to begin with.

    Add a lacy shirt to flannel pants. Wear a silky bustier under your black tailored pantsuit. Try a strapless top with a slim skirt. Add on something that might be a bit too-too for work, like net hose, embroidered boots, a fun purse instead of that logo bag, a huge faux cocktail ring and dramatic red nails, or a cute rhinestone wrap braceletů and, you’ve instantly turned the clock ahead to evening style! High heels automatically make everything even dressier. (Wolford Sixties Tights at

    Wear makeup! Suddenly spell razzle-dazzle with a streak of pale iridescent eye shadow or dark kohl lined eyes. Gloss-up lips or add a rich berry stain. And, for glamour’s sake, wear perfume!

    Do something different to your hair that morningůif it’s normally wavy, get a good blow-dry and wear it straight. If you favor a pixie cut, add some gel and funk it up. If you usually slick your hair back in a neat ponytail, put a curling iron to the test and wear your hair long and wavy.

    When in doubt, be boldů it’s a party, stop deliberating and go have fun!
