Dressing for the Holidays – Part 1 – Risk Taker

It’s officially holiday party season and if your social calendar looks anything like mine the next week weeks, you are going to need lots of outfits to hit up all those events! To help you look your best, in whatever the party style is, I thought I’d show you what I’m going to be wearing the next month!

Now I know this may not be that risky to some, but others who opt for black during the colder months, this is definitely outside the box. If you’ve been following me for some time, you are painfully aware of my aversion to jumpsuits and rompers, but how I am slowly coming around to loving them.  Well here’s another one for you! Express has always been a go to of mine for dressier, funkier and perhaps a bit more risque options when looking at evening wear, and this jumpsuit is no different. I initially fell in love with the color. This emerald green is AMAZING! And even better, looks great on every skin tone! Dark hair against this jewel tone would look INSANE!

Now make it work for you! If it’s a fancy cocktail party you are heading to, add some bold rhinestone jewelry, metallic accents and a fur wrap or snood like I did and you are set to find that handsome man under the mistletoe! Heading to the office party? A plain, black blazer over this and understated accessories and you won’t be the talk of the office the next day at the water cooler (do people still have water coolers at work?) Fun night out with friends? Easy.  Bomber jacket and a printed scarf to keep you warm and some black booties! It’s really easy to put things together when you have a great base like this jumpsuit!

And jumpsuits aren’t your thing, not to worry! Stay tuned for more holiday party looks coming at you next week!! Oh and don’t worry if you can’t zip the back of your jumpsuit after using the ladies room, don’t fret! It looks just as good left open! WHOOPS! (True story, I ran into the shaddiest gas station right before shooting this look and well lets just say I tried to get out of there REAL QUICK! I do it for my reader! HAHA!)
