Your Day-to-Night Holiday Wear
By Michele Meyer
‘Your Day-to-Night holiday wear! Tis the season to celebrate — which often requires a speedy switch from work to wow. Fortunately, it’s easy to transition seamlessly from day to night with minimum of fuss.
“The rest of the year, less is more,” says Sam Saboura, style expert and host of TLC’s Something Borrowed, Something New. “At the holidays, more is more. When it’s time to play, piling on that third and fourth piece takes your look to another level.” Here are day-to-night holiday wear tips from Saboura and other top celebrity stylists:
Plan a big reveal.
For an easy office-to-party look, wear a festive top under a work-appropriate jacket. “This season’s ‘date tops’ often reveal drama in the back — with sheer lace, cut-outs and open shoulders, that remain unseen until you take off your blazer or cardigan,” says Roseanne Morrison, fashion director for retail consultancy Tobe.
Wear one embellished piece that sparkles or shines during the day, such as a matte sequin tank, beaded cardigan, or boucle jacket with chain details or Lurex threads. “At night, add extra jewelry and accessories in rich metallic: pewter, gold or bronze,” Saboura says. “They’re an instant nod to the holidays — and a great investment for spring, since they’re on trend.”
