Christmas party wear with River Island.

Christmas is officially in less than two months! i still can’t believe we are just around the corner from the holidays. that being said, i’m sure a lot of you are beginning to add activities, events, and parties to your calendar to celebrate. from work parties to family gatherings, there’s always something going on during this time of the year!

one of the most asked/emailed questions i get around this time is how to dress for holiday parties. today, i’m teaming up with River Island to share a party wear look. i realize that not everyone loves to full on deck out in red and green, and i get that! i believe it’s all in the details when it comes to holiday wear. from a metallic lace skirt and embellished heels to a jewel tone evening bag and bow wrap blouse, it’s the little things that count when dressing up! i love sequins and everything that glitters, but jewel tones and luxury fabrics like velvets & suedes are perfect for the holidays, too.

plus, it’s great to add fun holiday details {like a green evening bag and embellished heels} to an outfit you can pull off the rest of the year, too. below i’m sharing some of my favorite picks from River Island for a Christmas party. for all of my curvy gals, RI has a great selection of plus size party wear, too! be sure to scroll down to the very end of this post to shop my exact look. i’m ready to get my party on! xx
