It’s that time of year when holiday party invites start filling up your inbox.
After adding it to your smartphone calendar, you start to panic about your holiday party outfit. I think we can all handle the ugly Christmas Sweater party look. That’s so easy! But what can we wear to the at-home casual party, the holiday business party, or the holiday school play for this season.
I reached out to my girls at Periwinkle in Delray Beach, FL to find out the Local Fashion Scoop for holiday party outfits. They gave me some great choices on looks and how these looks can be worn for other events as well.
Here is the Local Mom Scoop on your holiday party looks from Periwinkle.
I always have that casual holiday party at a friend’s home or at a local restaurant. How can I look and feel festive?
Courtney Wade, assistant manager at Periwinkle, told me that one of the most recent trends flying out of the store has been the sequin top.
She said that sequins are so versatile! This top, shown in the photo below, can be paired with distressed black skinny jeans and black stilettos for a holiday night on the town, or a wide leg black trouser for some holiday sparkle.
“It is a great piece to wear to a special event, perhaps even a fantastic NYE top!”, says Courtney.
For a more conservative holiday party look, this tweed black and white dress is another amazing piece in high demand at Periwinkle. She says the dress can be paired with tights and booties for the holiday school program or paired with pumps and the matching jacket for your holiday work party.
The jacket (sold separately) can be worn with a pair of jeans and some cool ballet flats which is one of my favorite looks. You can wear this look to any casual holiday party as well.
Courtney says all these outfits are not complete until you add some great jewelry. She says to layer on the Lucite this season. Each piece is hand painted and hand carved, set in gold tone. These necklaces were made for layering and adds an edge to any outfit.
With all these versatile choices, I think I’ll be ready for any holiday party invite that hits my inbox.
All of these items may be purchased at Periwinkle which is located at 339 E Atlantic Ave, Delray Beach, FL. You can call 561-279-9699 to make an appointment for holiday party help.
