The perfect look for your company holiday party. 

Get the look:

Style this festive J. Crew Drapey Shirtdress with a pair of opaque tights and the Reformation Mimi Buckle Pump. Adorn your hair with these freshwater pearl hair pins and swipe a layer of Mac's Velvet Teddy on your lips to finish the look.

My favorite thing about this look is the subtle hint of undergarment under the delicately beaded gown. A flirtatious holiday look that would be perfect for an evening at the ballet or symphony.

Get the look:

Get glam with this silky floral dress from Reformation. The print gives the dress an ultra feminine feel and these pointed toe kitten heels from J. Crew add just the right touch of sparkle to complete the look.

Velvet on velvet is always a yes for us. This look is perfect for gathering with your favorite people for holiday cocktails.

Get the look:

COS Velvet Blazer and Velvet Trousers. Style this set with a pair of knee high boots. We like this pair from Vince Camuto.

I want to ring in the new year in this perfectly styled look. The dark lip adds a touch of edge to the delicate details of this romantic puff sleeve mini dress.

Get the look:

Pair this Selkie Puff Dress with these ultra chic pointed toe suede pumps that have a fun pom detail. Accessorize with a delicately beaded pouch like this one from J. Crew. Complete the look with a seductive shade of burgundy lipstick; try Oxblood Burgundy by Nars.
