Of course prior to the holidays is evolved all around building the perfect look for your work party, family dinner, and other holiday related events throughout the month and into the new year. Hopefully you all found the deals on Black Friday for that fabulous dress you plan on wearing. For those of you that may have payed a bit more for that little dress that you will most likely only wear once and then it will sit at the back of your closet and then next year you will forget about it and buy a new one and the vicious cycle continues (Phew that was a long thought). Believe me I have been there too!
So for this weeks post I wanted to share with you guys a couple of tips for pieces that you may already have in your closet that can take your party looks to be worn in a variety of ways.
Leather or pleather jackets can do wonders. Paired with even your sparkliest New Years Eve dresses. Leather can tone down any look and give it that more I am here to be casual, but I still want a bit of sparkle. I went for a bold color, but black can usually pair perfect.
Layering under dresses. I have been seeing this trend a lot on Instagram and it is Dreamy Realist approved! For your dresses that are sleeveless you can pair a thin mock neck long sleeve or something that is more on the sheer side underneath that party dress or top. Is perfect for if you are out to dinner and want to take your jacket off and not feel like you are pretending it is 90 degrees on a 20 degree day.
Accessories can make all the difference. Just a change of a pair of earrings can make all the difference in the world with a flashy dress. Keeping the colors and tones more muted can make even your dressiest of dresses feel like just the perfect touch of glam. Even changing out your metallic gold high heels for a pair of suede leather booties and a pair of funky tights can give you comfort and trade out that glitter clutch for a casual leather bag and you are set!
So how many wears are you going to get out of your party dress this year?!
