Two weeks away to the day and Christmas is the theme spilling from everyones lips. And rightly so. Despite our unseasonably warm December (sorry New York), you can’t
walk drive two feet without smelling something piney, seeing something twinkley or hearing something jingley. Not that I’m complaining. But, with the big day precisely a fortnight away, my mind is not only dancing with visions of sugarplums. It’s also swirling with holiday party clothes. Because, from now (or, truthfully, since Thanksgiving) through New Year’s, it’s party central. In the spirit of all that is celebratory, bright and just darn pretty, I will be bringing you a series of party outfit inspo. First up, something a little less conventional than you’re typical cocktail dress, but just as lovely and, frankly, maybe even more sexy. I paired this lace bodysuit with a pair of high-waisted, voluminous trousers. Covered and masculine on the bottom, feminine and bare on the top. Definitely not for the faint of heart, this outfit is guaranteed to turn heads. And, why shouldn’t it? Amongst a sea of brightly bedecked ornaments, you’re going to stand out like the star on top.
