Holiday Checklist: What to Wear to Your Social Soiree

The holidays are in full swing, which means you’ll have plenty of guests to warmly welcome, drinks to toast and old friends to catch up with!  Get ready to check one more thing off of your holiday checklist with our quick guide of what to wear to your next holiday function. Find your favorite dress (and accessories) to keep you celebrating in style!

Gianni Bini Dress, Kate Spade watch, Michael kors clutch, Gianni Bini pumps, Gianni Bini heels, Gianni bini shoes

For our first holiday-ready wardrobe, we wanted to create a look that is the perfect recipe of warmth with a dash of golden glamour. The Janelle studded dress from Gianni Bini steals our hearts in  studded shine, adding a glimmering touch to this long-sleeved dress. And for all of you party planners, we know looking sophisticated reflects your punctual personality. That’s why a crisp collared shirt and this Kate Spade bracelet watch will keep you sharp in “I-got-this” confidence. Keep your holiday cheer (no matter what mishaps come your way) with the Gianni Bini Charlene sequined pumps and shimmery Fossil zip clutch.

Belle Badgley Mischka dress, Kate Landry clutch, Nina Bonique pumps, Betsey Johnson earrings

Now that you’ve proven you’re domestic diva who can whip up some good convo and hot cocoa, it’s time to celebrate with your friends! A tango of fuchsia, red and other flirty shades come together  in this sequin sheath dress from Belle Badgley Mischka. Step up the shine with the Nina Bonique pumps in rhinestone buckle embellishment. If you plan on rockin’ around the Christmas tree (aka dancing your heart out) we recommend some studs that won’t throw off your moves, like the Betsey Johnson stud earrings in dazzling fuchsia shine.  A girl on the go needs a little eye-candy that can hold on to her nightlife essentials. Grab the Kate Landry stone and sequin clutch for your clutch contender.

Prepare to steal the spotlight at your next gown gala. Hollywood glamour meets modern allure with this Alex Evenings off-the-shoulder gown.  This statement-red dress is softened by glistening goldtone with the Vince Camuto chandelier earrings— (keeping your collarbone bare to accentuate this embellished bust.)  Remember to give your feet the royal fête treatment with the Gianni Bini Wendy dress sandals for head-to-toe holiday glow. Kate Landry proves to be a girl’s best friend once again with this metal mesh rhinestone box. A ring top clasp closure adds rough-around-the-edges detail to this scarlet starlet silhouette.

Must-Have Metallic: Glam Up in Gianni Bini

Make way for metallic in brilliant shine-for-the-season style. Now, we know what you’re thinking: you don’t want to look like a flashy Christmas ornament— but hear us out! Not only is metallic the highlight of the season, but it also makes an eye-catching statement for the holidays with plenty of hello-gorgeous gleam. Whether you don some sequin sparkle, gold glitz or lustrous knit, give yourself a metallic makeover. Check out our Gianni Bini favorites!

 

Light up the night in modern-yet-regal flair with the Gianni Bini Pia dress.  Worn alone, this dress glows in opulent confidence, but if you’re looking for a little extra coverage for those cool nights, we recommend adding a touch of tough with the Alegra cardigan.  The faux-leather sleeves offer a sleek contrast to the slouchy knit bodice.  The Kyla platform heels punctuate this polished dress in gala glamour.

 

If you’re looking for something a little less lady-like, get ready to rock your shimmer sass with the Vanessa dress.  Zigzag stripes show off your coquettish side, while the Lucie faux-leather jacket— in reptilian sleeve detail—  punches up the cool ante.  These bold booties in black suede and sparkling embellishment embody your night for the taking!

 

Say hello to your next holiday (or any day, really) metallic outfit. Metallic fashion doesn’t just favor the nightlife, or black and gold for that matter! The Joey sequined skirt brings a bit of ivory sparkle in a woven pattern.  And we’re not leaving all you sweater weather fanatics out either— the Jewel sweater features a hint of metallic thread to wake up your wardrobe.  Brown dress booties keep your style casual and ready to embrace the season (even your crazy out-of-town family)!

 

Break away from your little black leggings and step into brilliance in baroque. The Gianni Bini Khloe leggings keep you standing out in statement goldfoil pattern.  Layer your look (while adding texture) with the Jordan jacket. The emerald bodice adds jewel-like radiance as a contrast to its faux-leather sleeves. Skip the cocktail dress and try this glimmering getup for your upcoming night out on the town.

 

Create a lovely-in-luster look with the Charlene  chevron skirt and Jackson peplum blouse.  In this feminine-meets-flirty combo,  a delicate lace top decorates this art deco-inspired miniskirt.  The Sabrina heels strut some shine in goldtone trim, finishing your evening ensemble from head-to-toe.

Trend Report: The Hottest Tall Boots for the Coldest Season

We’re being whisked into winter!  With a flurry of snow (or a torrent of rain, depending where you live), the chilliest season has arrived.  It’s the perfect time to embrace the warmth of the statement-making tall boot.

My favorite thing about tall boots: they’re crazy easy to dress up or down. I love wearing tall-shaft boots with everything from my favorite skinnies to a fit-and-flare dress and tights.  Both of these looks are on-trend and can utilize the same pair of boots for a wide range of vibes.  Translation: more fashion, less fuss (and bucks)!

Check out the most-loved styles of the season!

Elevated Style: What to Wear With Wedge Sneakers

Comfortable yet slimming, sporty yet sexy — the wedge sneaker is one of those ingenious designs that makes you wonder “Why didn’t I think of that?” But while the concept is simple, styling the hybrid shoe can prove to be a bit tricky. Fortunately, we have some easy tips for creating both casual and eye-catching looks.

Sporty Chic

If you’re going for a laid-back look with a little lift, sporty styling is the place to start. Think skinny jeans (in dark denim or black) paired with updated sweatshirts and slouchy graphic tees. Throw in delicate jewelry and a structured bag to hint at your femininity.
