I might have overindulged a little this Christmas. And I don’t just mean with food and drink (although there was plenty), or even holiday sales (even more so). No, I’m talking about the sparkle explosion in my closet this past season. If the following months promised as many parties, happy hours, and girls’ nights out as December did, I’d have an entire wardrobe ready to go.
So what to do with all of this holiday wear in January? Take it from night to day.
Let’s start with this metallic sheen skirt from Halogen. I wore it with a sequined sweater and flirty peep-toes to a dinner with friends last month. For my first day back at work, I paired it with a red plaid button-down, opaque tights, and simple black pumps.
Worn with more casual pieces, the skirt is suddenly office-appropriate. And it’s all in the details: Gold bows and a knockout statement necklace add sparkle long after the party is over.
Style Now, Style Later: Work in a more conservative office? Pair your party skirt with a classic black turtleneck or crewneck sweater. Another option? Throw a basic cardigan over a festive top and tuck it into a black or gray pencil skirt for your Monday meeting. Black tights and pumps will keep the outfit 9-5.
How are you wearing your holiday pieces this month?
