Skip the long gown this holiday and go for a maxi skirt and top. There are so many fun ways to personalize this look—beaded maxi skirt with simple silk top, or a solid colored maxi skirt and a metallic or beaded bustier. Not only will you stand out among all the other ladies wearing gowns, you’ll have great separates to add to your closet when the night is over and the last glass of champagne has been poured!
Men, nothing beats a clean, simple perfectly cut black tux. To add a dash of personality, play with your studs and cuff links. With a slew of options out there, you can let your personality shine through with colored stones, or a fun motif. Either way, you are sure to be the envy of every other gent in the room.
Of course the key to rocking any ensemble is confidence. If you’d like more fashion tips or help building your holiday wardrobe, the stylists at Tog + Porter would love to help you. At the time of this posting, we are only able to service female clients.
