From Desk to Drinks: 2016 Holiday Edition
By: Dana Lyons, General Manager at My Home Fashion Boutique
Dashing off for drinks after your 9-to-5? Surviving the holiday party circuit requires some wardrobe strategy, especially when it comes to post-work soirées and the race against time (thanks Miami traffic). Since going home to change isn’t always an option, I’ve put together a list of My Home Fashion Boutique’s favorite style hacks to take the stress out of desk-to-drinks dressing. The last thing you need slowing you down is your wardrobe!
Wide leg Pant Silhouette
When running from work to your next holiday party you want to feel fabulous without giving up comfort. Having the perfect pair of pants solves half the battle. Wide leg trousers in black or winter white not only look sophisticated for your staff meeting, but also transition beautifully when paired with a silk cami or sequined tank for your night out. Take a cue from B.O.N.D. and try the Siena Wide Leg Trouser, in black or winter white, on for size.
Ditch the Office Wear, and Rock the Outerwear
A fitted blazer is the classiest way to go topless this season. Yes, you read that right! If you’re feeling bold, follow in the fashionable footsteps of Hollywood’s finest like Rosie Hungtinton-Whitely and Rihanna and lose the office undergarments for a sexy, no shirt blazer look. Dare to go bare with a buttoned leather moto jacket by Gimo or fitted crop suede jacket by SEN. Add an ivory beaded necklace by David Aubrey or sandstone bracelets by Cindy Zale, and your outfit is complete. This edgy update to a classic power suit is the ideal way to show off your avant-garde taste effortlessly.
Cap Sleeve Meets Color
To keep your day-to- night transition minimal, go with a silk blouse. The refined elegance of the blouse is a no-brainer for the office, but how about a blouse with the holiday twist of a cap sleeve? The shimmering material and angelic hue make it worthy of a champagne toast. Try on the B.O.N.D. cap sleeve shirt with delicate neckline for a put together and party-approved look. To complement any outfit quick-change, swipe on a vivid red or rich mulberry lipstick, and you’ll be ready for any holiday party photo op!
Never Underestimate the Power of Heels
Shoes are the quintessential hero to dress up any day-to- night ensemble. Slip on a pair of striking, textured heels or opt for a stiletto heeled boot. Scarlet, evergreen and metallic tones lend a perfect pop of color to any outfit. Don’t underestimate the power of a pointed flat to make a statement for the holidays as well. My Home Fashion’s Bara column heel by Rudsak or the On – Point flat by Jaggar will have you standing out amongst the crowd.
