December marks the olympics of social gatherings. Everyday seems to bring a new invitation to a holiday party - you’ve got things to do and people to see - but somehow, nothing to wear. If you've got dress fatigue or are just tired of recycling the same old LBD, you're going to love our picks. We have rounded up pieces that will take you from a black tie event to a night at the club:
Forever Sequin Top (Rs. 1800 approx):
There is no reason to feel less festive if you are not rocking a frock this season - because a sequin number like this will make you camera ready in a heart beat. Make a grand entrance by teaming the top with a floor length full maxi skirt or tone it down a notch by pairing it with a pair of black jeans for a more casual affair.
Midi Skirt (Rs. 1800; Faballey.com):
A dressed-up skirt in a modest cut will fit in almost anywhere. Contrast the shimmery fabric and the fuller silhouette of the skirt with a casual boat neck top to create a mash-up of separates that will look just as glamorous as a gown. Punctuate the outfit with dangling earrings, pulled back hair and your glittery heels for a look that is picture perfect.
Navy Jumpsuit (Rs. 2754; Jabong.com):
The one-piece wonder of the year isn't a cocktail dress - it's a cocktail jumpsuit. The chain neckline and a deep V back of this navy jumpsuit piles on the drama and makes for a stop-and-stare number. Dress yours up with heels, a red lip and a fur topper to score maximum style points.
Forever New Dress (Rs. 6200):
Forever New brings you a dress that gives you the holiday cheer, minus the cheese. This soft pastel dress featuring feminine and flattering lines is positively demure and perfect for an office party or a family get together.
Sequin Stripe Pants (Rs. 1495; Koovs.com):
The holidays are perfect excuse to show off a little shine and shimmer but instead of the oh-so-predictable cocktail dress, this season we suggest you look to a pair of fancy-pants. These black pants with sequin stripes have ‘holiday festivities’ written all over them. Partner them with a boxy top and add smart extras like a bold clutch and sleek heels for a look that is guaranteed to set you apart for the rest of the RSVP list.
Zara Sequin Bomber (Rs. 5990):
This is how sporty girls do fancy - the overall sequins in a champagne hue make this jacket totally festive. The jacket can dress up a pair of skinny pants without needing to worry about being either over or under dressed.
Off-Shoulder Dress (Rs.1850; Theclosetlabel.com):
One of the season’s sexiest trends - the shoulder-revealing neckline in the season’s hottest hue makes this gown an absolute show stopper. All you need are some sleek open toe heels and a big smile for a sultry evening look.
Sequin Dress (Rs.1799; Fashionara.com):
You can't do the holidays without your shining moment. Short, sparkly and deliciously sexy - this dress was made to jingle and mingle in. Since the dress does all the accessorizing for you - all you need is a a black clutch and a pair of pumps to polish off the ensemble.
