How To Dress Up Without A Single Sequin

We get it. With all the holiday parties, anti-holiday parties, and massive, low-key hang-outs that turn out to be parties after all, it gets a little exhausting to think up outfits for every occasion. That's where we come in. We've styled three, must-try evening looks that don't feel all dressed up. They're put-together, but not uncomfortable. Flattering, but not too-tight, so you can still chow down on whatever is piled on the buffet table.
