One of the things we love about the holiday season is that it's a time of year when we get to be extra and go all out with the festive 'fits. Bright and bold? Yes, please! Embellishments — why not? Texture on texture? Don't mind if we do. But with so many interminable style options at our fingertips, how does one pull it all together? To make dressing for this year's holiday party circuit a piece of cake, we've put together our go-to essentials from Laundry by Shelli Segal that can help you skimp on the stress while loading up on style.
Go Bold or Go Home
For a holiday soirée, a daring approach is always a win. Luckily, this season's dresses are all about the bold. Coming in red hot — literally — is a perfect way to alert the rest of the party with a single glance that, this year, you are the gift. No matter the hue, sticking with a single tone can still give you a perfect jumping off point for incorporating other fun design elements that make an impact, like a hiked pleated hemline, sexy draping, or dare-to-bare cutouts that turn your skin into an accessory all on its own.
Bling on the Fun
We love a little sparkle any time of the year, but when it comes to fête-ing holiday style, it's always appropriate to say yes to a larger helping. Pile on the personality by layering chunky pieces, like a flashy cocktail ring and a jewel-drenched bracelet. Dangly earrings that graze the neck create an effortless effect whether your hair is kept coiffed or worn down.
Toss on Some Texture
Faux-fur coats have always been a style staple during the colder months, but given we've been starved for glamor over the past few years, this season, they're even more of a hot ticket. Turn your fit into the total package by wrapping yourself in a lush, fuzzy coat. One of our favorite things about a faux-fur number is how well it plays with other textures: stick with a neutral tone to make it work with anything from prints or ruffles to an embellished LBD.
