Holiday Lewks

'Tis the season for Holiday parties, and all these festive soirées can really stump a girl when it comes to choosing an outfit. I've been attending lots of them this season, and instead of taking the easy road and defaulting to a safe all-black ensemble, I've been jazzing things up with punchy colors and super shiny fabrics. Because if you can't do it now, when can you?!

To help get you inspired for your next merry fête, I've gone ahead and broken down three looks I wore to events last week, along with the shopping creds. Don't forget there's also New Year's Eve to plan for!

Look 1

Head to toe neon pink, but make it grunge. Why not?

Shopbop blazer and pants
Marc Jacobs t-shirt
LOQ boots

The total lewk:

Look 2

All the shiny things for the holiday season, but make it rock 'n roll.

Ba&sh dress
Rag & Bone jacket
Fendi bag

The total lewk:

Look 3

WWHHD? (What would Hugh Hefner do?) Probs wear this to a holiday party.

& Other Stories top and pants
Stella McCartney coat (found at Consignment Brooklyn)
Vintage bag

Street Wise

There's something so smart about a wide leg plaid trouser, but in classic me form, I couldn't resist the dichotic appeal of pairing them with some laissez-faire pieces that would likely very much go against anyone else's style intuitions.

Balance is something I constantly reiterate on this blog, and it's my best piece of fashion advice when I'm asked to impart my "wisdom." Counterbalancing vibes instead of leaning into one full throttle is something I instinctively apply to every single outfit I put together.

If I feel pulled too strongly in one direction, I have to tip the scales on the opposite end. Which is why you're seeing me here in office pants with a baggy long sleeve tee, a ski hat, and rock 'n roll accessories.
