+ Look for Less, + Three Ways

Two Ways: Holiday Party Day-to-Night

After work holiday parties are always tricky.  You want to look your best for both occasions, but they don’t have the same dress code.  Here is my favorite day-to-night look for work-related events.


Dress: Goat Wallis Wool Dress ($326)

Workday, Necklace: Nakamol Collar ($36) // Bag: Matt & Nat Satchel ($168) // Tights: Commando Ultimate Opaque Tights ($38) // Shoes: Kate Spade Nessa Too ($498)

After Work, Necklace: Nebular Collar Necklace ($62) // Bag: La Regale Minaudière ($53) // Shoes: Neiman Marcus Abegail Pumps ($85)

For transitioning from day-to-night, you can go with a basic black sheath (like this Josephine dress from NYDJ) or choose a color.  I like eggplant, white, or green.

Add a boot and tights for daytime, then switch to a mesh pump for night.  This Neiman Marcus shoe is a great buy.  And I’m still lusting after these L.K. Bennett shoes with a mesh vamp.

I finished off both looks with a cool necklace–beads for the work outfit, sparkle for night time.  If you need statement necklaces with punch, I recommend BaubleBar and Neiman Marcus Last Call.

    Great outfits and timing, thank you Belle! My holiday party this year is in the office at 5 pm (a big change from previous years offsite at 7) and I have been stressing about what to wear.

    The guys are apparently wearing tuxes the whole day, but I am not doing doing work in a cocktail dress, haha.
