Love Her Outfit! Sparkly Star Looks to Steal
Less advanced (or more weather-conscious) fashionistas may want to add tights to this look, but Alexa’s silver micro-mini, with its trapeze shape and flirty hemline, is just the right mix of naughty and nice for every party from now ‘til New Year’s.
With her love of shiny dresses and red lipstick, is ready for holiday party season all year round. But nothing is quite as on-point as this brocade-skirted Romona Keveza dress, which she pairs with a cat eye and Mary Janes featuring a fun glittery appliqué on the heel.
Our favorite thing about a beaded black dress like ? It’ll look just as fresh for a wedding in a few months as it does when you get that kiss at midnight on Dec. 31. Swap in some pink or purple pumps to give the look a little unexpected flair.
There aren’t many times of year where you’d want to reach for a red velvet dress. Take advantage of this brief window by choosing a look like Anna’s Oscar de la Renta – the wrap style and surprising embossed belt keep this look modern and grown-up, and squarely out of “This is my winter formal dress from Delia’s” territory.
One reason we love adding a cropped moto jacket to a super-girlie fit-and-flare dress? It hits at just the right part of your waist, so you can still show off your figure without shivering bare-armed all night. (Oh right: The other reason we love the moto addition is that crucial warmth factor.)
Not feeling a mini? Just wanting to incorporate some gold lamé into your life? Get inspiration from Krysten’s J. Mendel dress – though consider giving it your own spin by topping a similar skirt with a cropped cashmere sweater, or tone down the formal vibe by opting for a chambray shirt with a statement necklace.
In the fashion dictionary, under “holiday party outfits,” the definition is just a photo of this look. The tween fashionista hits it out of the park in a party-perfect, bow-embellished frock and silver ankle-strap Jimmy Choos.
For that New Year’s Eve wedding you have (where you’re confident the bride won’t mind being upstaged) try a knockout dress like Ivanka’s red-rose embroidered A-line Oscar de la Renta number, which she wore to Good Morning America. She polishes the look off with extremely classic gold accessories, black pumps (all her own design) and a perfectly matched red lip.
No, we’re not suggesting you shave your head and/or dye your hair purple. What we are suggesting is that any do will do with a clothing combo as festive and feminine as Kelly’s here. A modest hem gives a figure-hugging pencil silhouette (like her glimmering Alice + Olivia skirt) a ladylike feel, and a jet-black top and leather jacket toughens up the sequins.
