The holiday season means pulling out the cashmere scarves, sliding on the thigh high boots, and throwing on the shearling jackets, but it also means getting to wear your cutest cocktail dresses to holiday parties and lavish affairs.
While celebrities are constantly rocking flawless red carpet looks to all the major awards shows, parties and events, these looks certainly go into overdrive around the holiday season when stars pull out all the stops, strutting their stuff in the latest dress and gown trends including lace, silk chiffon, satin, ruffles, well-placed draping, prints, sequins, embellishments and lots of details.
Now you, too, can rock the very same looks for your next holiday party, even if it doesn't mean wearing a high-fashion designer or slipping into the same exact dress.
While always looking utterly stylish and completely put together, Carey has always dressed much older than her age. Still, that never stopped us from loving her vintage-inspired looks. One great example is this stone textured beaded sleeveless top and black A line skirt with pockets from the Spring 2011 collection at the Bafta awards. She sparks our interest by adding sharp electric blue YSL Palais pumps. Copying this look, minus the electric blue heels, is the perfect look for a not-too-rowdy holiday get together with friends and fellow socialites.
While its more of a youthful look than the one Carey pulled off, a similar looking beaded neck blouse and skort set can make you look sweet and sassy in one pretty little package.
Chloe Beaded Neck Blouse and Chloe Shantung Skort $1645 and $945
