Holiday parties: one dress, two ways

by Daisy Lewellyn, The Queen of Effortless Chic

Holiday parties happening immediately after work? Be a quick change artist by accessorizing your party dress for daytime, and then again for evening. Not only will it make your transition easier, but it’s a great way to get the most from your dress.


Take One: the day job

Bring the sunshine into the office with this bold lemon yellow dress that will disguise itself as a skirt and blouse under a blazer. Dark opaque tights offset the vivid piece and look terrific with a classic pearl stud and good girl rocker chic bracelet. Toss all of your work files and day essentials in a structured work tote and you are good to go with a look that says “I mean business”.

Take Two: the night look

Perfect for a sexy dinner date, or holiday party, pair the bright piece with textured peekaboo lace tights, dangly hoop earrings and an interesting pop of purple on a cocktail ring and sparkly clutch. Pull out your inner diva and throw on a chubby fur coat in noir with a sleek pair of stacked platform pumps.
