Now that we’re deep in the weeds of the holiday party stretch, we thought we’d take a second to show you how we’ve dressed for some recent festivities. We’ve attended parties of all different levels of fanciness, and dressed up or down with a few simple accessory changes. With some hope, these looks will give you inspiration for the second half of the holiday-partying season. Katie has attended 4 parties over the last 3 days. Here’s how she styled her Brass dresses:
Christmas Eve Brunch
My family split up for Christmas this year. My sister and her husband were with his side of the family, so we had a Christmas Eve brunch to exchange presents, drink mimosas and relax before the party hopping started.
I dressed the T-maxi down with a cozy pullover sweater and chunky scarf. The T-maxi turned out to be the hero of my wardrobe this fall. It’s just so versatile. The sweater makes the dress super casual and perfect for a mid-morning look. I paired it with brown ankle booties; I love it when they peek out of the slit in the skirt.
The best part about this outfit? A couple accessory changes and I was off to a fancier evening party!
Christmas Eve Family Parties
Who has time to be changing outfits between parties? I certainly don’t. A few quick changes and the T-maxi became a sophisticated party dress I wore all evening.
The T-maxi has a pretty cowl neckline that looks great with a structured jacket or cropped cardigan sweater. I paired it with a black jacket with leather sleeves for a nighttime feel. My black wedge booties gave me some height, and I was able to party all night…
Who am I kidding? I was on the couch in a food coma by 11pm.
Christmas day at my parents’ house is a marathon. Lots of eating, drinking and laughing. Comfort is king at this party, so I wore my Shirt Dress.
I wore the Shirt Dress with a pair of heavy black tights, a festive plaid scarf and my Sorel lace up wedge boots. I received lots of complements on “how nice I looked” from my family. Little did they know how cozy I was wrapped up in that big ole scarf. I had my phone in my pockets so I could snap nice family photos. It was the perfect Christmas day attire.
Friday Night with Friends
Tonight will be about getting together with old friends. We’ll probably head to a bar downtown, have a couple of glasses of wine and perhaps track down an old cover band we use to stalk…um, I mean, support.
I will be wearing the Fit & Flare out with tights and tall boots to keep my legs warm as we hop around the city. Another long plaid scarf will keep me warm and in the holiday spirit.
