We know all those holiday invitations have your head spinning faster than a dreidel -- but please don't dress irresponsibly.
So, the office party invite suggests festive wear. No need for jingle bells. Instead focus on colors and fabrics: deep red, shimmery silver, lush velvet. Match pants with an embellished blazer or a tiered gypsy skirt with a sexy cardigan.
Your friends are throwing a fete at the club, and cocktail attire is in order. The little black dress has been banished until after the new year. Instead, slip into a ruby satin halter gown or a silk chiffon dress with a deep V neckline and vibrant double-ruffled hem.
Neighbors are hosting an open house. "Just dress sharp," they suggest. Pair something lacy with something simple. Kick up a simple skirt with tights or knee-high boots. Top off with chandelier earrings.
Hmmmm . . . now what kind of winter coat?
