Making a statement at your holiday party

With the holidays upon us, our schedules are filled- from holiday parties at friends' places to the annual office party.  Each occasion calls for a specific and distinct outfit- but whether it's casual for a friends place, or professional for an office party- you still want to make a statement.  But how? 

For office parties, stick with something simple and play it up by accessorizing with statement jewelry.  

Check out some of the suggestions from inStyle Magazine: 


Simple, sophisticated, yet eye catching! 

For a more casual setting, you can experiment in any way!  Metallics are very hot this winter (no pun intended)- so bring out the bling and sparkles!  Pair a sequin shirt with a pair of jeans and cuff bracelet, or a metallic skirt with a black crew neck sweater.  The possibilities are endless!  Not into metallics?  Play the part of snow queen by donning an all winter white outfit with pops of color by accessorizing with necklaces, bracelet and/or clutches.  Just be sure to stay away from the red wine! Click through for some visuals from inStyle Magazine.
