1. Mango Short Sleeve Sweater ($15) // 2. Alberta Ferretti Tulle Skirt ($1,056) // 3. Andrew Hamilton Showgirl Cuff ($70) // 4. Kate Spade Licorice Pump ($328) // 5. Pour la Victoire Nouveau Clutch ($124) // 6. Formula X for Sephora Sparklers ($12.50)

This look, from Walk in Wonderland, is perfect for a holiday party.  The flirty tulle skirt, pretty sweater and metallic accessories create a look that is part ballerina, part fairy princess.  Here’s how to recreate it yourself.

One. This short-sleeve lurex sweater from Mango is a great all-season piece.  Wear it in the winter, layered over thin blouses and in the spring and summer on its own.  However, if you’d like something with longer sleeves, try this LOFT banded sweater.  Also, the original look calls for a backless sweater.  So if you’d like to recreate that look, try this navy, glitter sweater from Samantha Eng.

Plus-size? Try this inexpensive Land’s End sweater or this Torrid open-knit sweater,

Two. If you love all things flirty and feminine, I highly recommend a tulle skirt for special occasions.  Sadly, this one is out of the ballpark.  I also found this Carnet de Mode skirt for $289 and this less voluminous LOFT skirt for $79.  Want the softness of tulle in a sleeker shape?  Try this Ann Taylor pencil skirt with tulle accents.  And if you want the exact skirt the blogger is wearing, check out these skirts from Space 46.

Three. A stunning silver cuff is essential to the look as a whole.  I like this lightly sparkly cuff from Alexander Hamilton.  You could also choose this cutout hammered cuff from Sequin or this Yochi Starburst cuff.

Four. To create a modern mixed metal look, the blogger chose rose gold pumps like these ones from Kate Spade.  If you want even more sparkly, you could try Spade’s Lynda pump.  Need a shorter heel?  Try this Rebecca Minkoff Kalin pump.  But if you’re looking to save money, try this $50 Shoe Cult pump.

Five.  A silver foil bag pairs with the rose gold foil on the pumps, and coordinates with the silver jewelry.  Pour la Victoire clutch has the same smooth finish and a unique shape.  Need something less expensive, this box clutch from Nine West has a similar finish for less-than-$25.

Six. To complete the look, she chose a silver foil nail polish.  I really like the Formula X polishes from Sephora because they are so unique and have decent staying power.  Above is a sparkly polish, this Chrome polish has a softer, more even finish.

    I am absolutely smitten with Essie’s Ignite the Night from the holiday collection–wearing it over their Good as Gold and it’s so perfectly sparkly, and is super easy to apply. Highly recommend.

    A more affordable option for the tulle skirt is from a small business owner and blogger, Dress Corilynn. I highly recommend her skirts! They are quality that will last a long time. https://www.dresscorilynn.com/product/the-tulle-skirt/

    I love this look. A longer tulle skirt keeps it more tame than Carrie Bradshaw-esque (as much as I love Carrie and SJP, the short tutu look is hard to pull off!). I tried on the LOFT tulle skirt and it was a bit too short for my taste…although I’m 5’9, so it may work on more petite ladies.

    If you have a bit of an edgier style, you can try the tulle skirt with a white t-shirt, black pumps, and a black leather jacket. I even wore black Converse sneakers with the skirt to an event, although it was admittedly an art gallery opening with very creative types (my outfit wasn’t the most wacky ensemble there).

    Valerie, you just got me to stop hating this skirt. It reads too 50’s prom to me, but with high tops? Now your cookin’!

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
