Even though I’ve been wearing mostly comfy clothes this holiday season (dressing a 7-month pregnant figure is no easy task!) I have had a few occasions that called for an upgrade from my men’s XL sweatpants. In those moments, it’s always nice to have a few easy go-to’s in your back pocked for those special seasonal occasions. That way, you’re not left scrambling and tearing the closet apart trying to find a last-minute holiday outfit. Whether it’s a simple cocktail dress and a killer pair of shoes, or a fab pair a wide-leg trousers with an elegant sweater, having a plug-and-play formula for holiday party clothes helps keep the season feeling merry and bright!
I definitely have a few rules that I stick to when combining pieces for a festive look. I like a one-and-done base layer, myself: a slip dress if I’m feeling fancy, a jumpsuit for a sassier mood. No matter what you wear underneath, streamlined blazers give any look a tuxedo-inspired feel. For shoes, I always reach for flats or low heels—because aching feet have no place at a party! Finally, a little sparkle adds a nice touch this time of year, whether it takes the form of a luminous fabric, a sequined trim, or a layer of bling. We still have over a week of holiday events barreling towards us, which makes me wonder…do you think I can find some men’s XL sweatpants with some silver sequin flair?!
