As most of you know, I’m savvy about shopping my closet first (read HERE) and shopping for key pieces that will elevate my wardrobe. For example, I’m wearing a DVF (Diane Von Furstenberg) LBD below that is appropriate for the office/corporate work environment – it hits just below the knees, neckline isn’t too low and the sleeves which you can’t see are 3/4 length. Instead of frantically trying to find a new dress for a holiday work party, I added a few elements to turn this dress into a stylish holiday appropriate look amongst bosses and co-workers.
Rich jewel tones such as ruby, emerald and deep amethyst are must-have Fall/Winter wardrobe colors and fit for the holidays like my Altuzarra for Target tuxedo blazer and Zara ankle strap heels. To elevate this outfit even further, I added a bijoux statement necklace (Nordstrom Rack), crystal bangles and a ruby lip (Laura Geller Love Me Dew in Plum Freeze). Accessories (jewelry, shoes, handbags, belts, scarves) and outerwear (such as a blazer or jacket) are investment pieces because you can wear them with mostly any outfit.
Savvy Style Tip: Be sure when buying a specific item, you can wear it with at least 3 outfits from you closet.
