Now, take heart — we would never suggest skipping a good soirée (especially if there's bubbly involved), so clearly, the answer lies in some strategic ensemble planning. With the help of some extra-stylish bloggers, we're showing you how to pull off two anything-but-ordinary holiday looks that'll work in every setting. So, yeah, go ahead and RSVP "yes" a few more times— you've got this!
Blogger Nife O. of Skinny Hipster has mastered the streamlined-and-polished combo with her sleek printed pants and of-the-moment peplum top. She keeps her overall look simple — but effective — with a single pattern, some statement jewels, and a tiny bit of colorblocking. The verdict? An insta-classic look for an office holiday party or straight-from-work happy hour.
