Claiming that we’re “awkward” is probably our go-to way to self-deprecate. It’s simply because we’ve all been that girl
— the one who's holding so many hors d'oeuvres she doesn’t have a spare limb to shake a stranger’s hand. Or, the one who can't walk across a room without spilling her beverage, and for whom the term "small talk" makes her wince. And, this time of year — the Olympics of social gatherings — our graces are really put to the test.
Well, we’re putting our hard-learned lessons to better use: helping you navigate the holiday party circuit with a few clever style solutions. Yes, your outfit can
help. There are accessories so cool they're automatic icebreakers, clothes that will hide a margarita dribble, and other precautionary measures that are so much more than fancy and festive. Click on and ease those nerves, party girl.
