With the party season just around the corner and gift-buying in full-swing (for those who are organized enough, anyway), holiday attire can sometimes fall by the wayside. We’ve all been there: Our inboxes slowly become inundated with celebratory invites—an after-work party here, a neighbour’s festive pot-luck there—and before you know it, you’re standing at home in your underwear, having pulled apart your closet looking for that one sparkly top that can turn your 9-to-5 uniform into a fete-tastic ensemble.
In order to keep your closet intact, we’ve found some pieces for those who want to dress beyond, whatever-fits-in-my-closet or that-one-shimmery-top-look. Here are some pieces that’ll make holiday dressing an actual joy.
THE SUBTLE-Y EMBELLISHED DRESS
Let’s face it, finding an all-season, day-to-evening dress is like finding a miracle. Here are some of our faves that use minimal embellishment to make a big impact.
THE VELVET TOP
Why not switch it up? Leave the sparkle behind and opt for a touchy-feely velvet T-shirt that’ll easily dress up any office-worthy bottom.
THE MADE-YOU-LOOK CLUTCH
No time to change into that after-work dress? Make a statement with an accessory that’ll do all the late-night, heavy-lifting for you.
