It's only a week and a half until Thanksgiving which means that the holiday party season is about to start! Nothing says holiday like sparkle and glamour so this is the time to dust off your sequins and slip into your dancing shoes. The most versatile (and often the least expensive) way to add seasonal glitz to your outfit is with a festive tank. To avoid looking like an over decorated Christmas tree, choose pieces in grey, gold or winter white tones.
For the office holiday party: Tuck your glitzy top into black or grey trousers and add a black cardigan. If you want to add a pop of color, opt for a red pump. Even for work parties held off premises, make sure to have a cardigan handy; if these are people you mostly see in a work environment, then even your social outfits should feel professional and polished.
For a night out with friends: Slip into your most flattering dark wash jeans and leave your glitzy top untucked. If you think you will be cold, add a black blazer with the cuffs rolled up, however If you're going somewhere warm, like to a crowded bar, skip the outer layer. Add a sparkly bangle bracelet and your favorite heels.
For your friend's holiday open house: Tuck your glitzy top into a neutral colored pencil skirt and add a bright cardigan (I'm partial to burgundy and emerald). You will probably be standing around so finish your ensemble with a comfortable pair of flats or wedges. Unless it is an evening affair, feel free to skip the sparkly jewelry since your top is already the statement piece.
