Holiday parties typically mean jewel tones, little black dresses and tons of sparkle. However, investing in these items isn’t always the best call given the limited opportunities most of us have to wear them. On the other hand, splurging on a fabulous jacket that works just as well with jeans as it does over a satin camisole and pencil skirt can prove to be well worth it. There is no better time than the present to find the piece that you’ll throw on top of it all for years to come.
Marching band inspired styles are hot this year but this is a look that consistently returns to the runways. If you like glittering braid and strong shoulders, go for something like this Alice By Temperley red, black, and gold jacket . An added bonus? The nipped-in waist line is super flattering.
Still need that holiday bling? This Club Monaco sequined jacket’s pewter shade is subtle yet glamorous, and perfect when paired with icy blues, plums and classic black.
