Editors Inc. Holiday Dressing

From work-related functions to family obligations, your social calendar is probably fully booked from now through the new year. Don’t want to “shop your closet” (yet again)? Here is some fashionable inspo just in time for the holiday-party rush.

The Office Party

A velvet blazer is a classic holiday staple. Style it with a blouse and dramatic fringed pencil skirt for your office party, and a sexier slip dress for out-of-office festivities.

Dinner at The In-Laws’

Pairing a midi-length, full skirt with a fitted knit means you’ll look polished without feeling constricted. The sparkly shoes add a festive touch, and you can rock them with boyfriend jeans post-holidays.
