Kicking off the holiday party series with tuxedo inspired look. Today I’m teaming timeless pieces with a very of-the-moment lace top with sheer panels. The sheer trend continues to rein and I thought it would be a perfect look make this trend holiday party worthy. When paired with conservative pieces this sheer top instantly becomes ultra chic and amount of skin showing is reduced dramatically. I am a huge fan of pairing very feminine or more revealing pieces with menswear inspired ones. The combo really helps balance each other. The overall vibe is stylish sophistication, but still has a little sex appeal. I personally love a pant and jacket look for the holidays because when the weather is cold sometimes a dress just isn’t as practical, especially if you are like me and always feel cold.
Now, let’s talk about investment pieces and how to determine if a piece is worth the price tag. True investment pieces should be of a classic style and timeless silhouette. With proper care you could enjoy these outstanding pieces for a lifetime. Both my jacket and pants are perfect examples of investment pieces. They offer something visually special, are made with amazing fabrics and the quality of craftsmanship is outstanding. I know I will enjoy these pieces for a very, very long time. Examples of pieces to invest in would be a tuxedo jacket and pants, a neutral colored blazer, a long wool coat, and classic little black dress to name a few.
