As we dive straight into the holiday soirées, it’s time to embrace and reinvent our party look. And, with little time to spare between dinner parties and special events, JCPenney brings you all the bright accessories to double the dose of sparkle for holiday celebrations. Whether it’s a daytime gathering or a Christmas dinner, you’ll find plenty of New Year-approved dresses and jewelry that are guaranteed conversation starters. We also bring you some day-to-night style tips to help you get started.
From Lunchtime Office Party to Happy Hour
For that daytime office party where you want to look fabulous, but work-appropriate, a little black dress is a great choice, especially when paired with a moto or black jacket. Opaque tights and an edgy bootie will be other sleek yet sophisticated additions. To finish the look, keep makeup simple. Try a statement lipstick as the focal point.
For the after-work dinner or party that follows, ditch the jacket, add bold statement earrings, and exchange the tights and bootie for pumps. Switch your makeup by glamming up the eye, paired with a glossy nude or natural lip for an “opposites attract” look.
From Kiddo’s Class Party to Girls’ Night Out
Another scenario might start with your kid’s holiday class party. Be the best-dressed mom in a sparkly tank worn under a super soft cardigan and boyfriend jeans. Wear your coolest sneakers here for a look that is both sporty and cool. For girls’ night out, the sparkly tank works overtime when paired with perfectly fitting ankle pants or silky joggers. Bold accessories, strappy heels, and a statement clutch complete your look. For makeup, keep it simple. Here a nude eye and bold lip are the perfect combo.
From Casual Outdoors to Christmas Plays
Here’s the perfect opportunity to strike that perfect balance between being laidback yet sophisticated. Opt for a blouse and skirt in a festive matching print that offers the look of a dress, but with a more fashion-savvy flair. And accessorize with pair of diamond stud earrings and a tennis bracelet. Another great look is an embellished sweater over a well-fitting pair of trousers and strappy shoes is a must. If sequins and shine aren’t your thing, go for fringe. Nothing says festive and fun like a fringe tank under a tuxedo jacket with skinny pants or dark jeans.
Cookie Exchange Parties to Holiday Lunch with Your Girls
Any chance to exchange (and eat) cookies are a special occasion! What you wear should be just as special. Try a sleeveless, ruffled blouse in a bold, strong color paired with your most amazing jeans. Heels and sparkly accessories are the perfect frosting on the…cookie! If your friends are more of the dressed-up variety, nothing beats a great dress. A fit-and-flare silhouette is ideal if you have lunch (and exchange cookies). When selecting a dress for this occasion, opt for a cute dress, so save the bodycon styles for a night out.
