Monday Outfit: Holiday Parties Go Glam

Nov 8, 2021

It’s not often that a look stops me completely in my tracks.  So when I spotted this dramatic evening look on Hailey Bieber (yes, that Bieber), I knew I had to find a way to use it as inspiration for holiday party attire.  Let’s go.

This Saint Laurent gown is truly stunning, but finding a similar duplicate would be impossible.  So let’s break down the essential elements of Hailey Bieber’s look — v-neck, white, structured, chunky stack of bangles, deep burgundy lip.  This, this is doable.

Sweater // Given that this is for a holiday gathering, I thought a white sweater might be a good choice.  This one from Jardin Des Orangers has a pulled in waist and dramatic v-neck.  For something in cashmere, White + Warren offers a similar faux wrap style.  Prefer a simple v-neck?  Banana Republic has you covered.  Plus-size?  Nasty Gal has a similar style.

Skirt // I chose a skirt for this outfit because I dream of a world of dressy cocktail parties.  Luckily, Tahari has an affordable one that can also squeeze into a professional wardrobe.  I also like these wide leg pants from Ann Taylor.  Or stick with a pair of white jeans in a flare leg.

Earrings // I love the uniqueness of these J.Crew pearl drop earrings.  They’re delicate, but modern.  In fact, all of J.Crew’s pearl jewelry is pretty great right now.

Bracelets // The cuffs with the pushed up sleeves are the key to this look.  For me, I would go with both wrists.  For this look, I stuck to one.  The bottom cuff is from St. John and is marked down from $400 to $60.  So it’s a steal.  The top cuff is from Jenny Bird, a beautifully made brand, and is on sale at Nordstrom Rack.

Other awesome cuff options include this Missoma dome cuff, this Stella Toledano cuff with round accents, or these <$50 thinner cuffs from Baublebar.  Or you can still with one dramatic cuff and let Kenneth Jay Lane deliver the goods.

Shoes // I wanted a burgundy pump for this look to complement the bold lip.  This pair from Nine West was calling my name.  These wine-colored flats from Sarah Jessica Parker are also worth a look.

Lipstick // The darkest shade of burgundy lipstick I own comes from Bobbi Brown.  The darkest shade I could find for sale comes from Huda Beauty.  The HB lipstick is perfectly matte and deeply pigmented (plus the packaging is gorgeous).

The Find: A Miracle T-Shirt

Remember when clothes didn’t suck? The years were the late-90s and early-aughts. Jeans stretched a little, but were mostly cotton. Cashmere was soft and heavy and durable. Poly-blends were only sold at the giant teens stores on the lower level of the mall. And t-shirts were thick, not see-through, and wore like iron. Your first […]
