Believe it or not, holiday party season is right around the corner, which means it’s time to plan your party outfits. Friday and Saturday nights are about to get all booked up with office gatherings, festive dates, dinner parties, and other events involving copious amounts of alcohol and deliciously cheesy food. And, no matter how perfect it is, you can’t possibly wear a velvet dress to all of these happenings. Luckily, Michelle Monaghanis here with the easiest party outfit on the planet—and possibly the chicest, too.
Didn’t think you could pull off jeans at a holiday-season cocktail party? Think again! By adding a festive jacket and low-but-glamorous heels, Monaghan turned a pair of denim flares into an outfit worthy of, if not your fanciest, at least your coolest November-December soirees. The trick to pulling off this look is to pay close attention to what’s happening from the knees down here. Skinny jeans and sky-high heels would look way less right now; it’s all about that flared hem, which should hit you right at the ankle, and the mid- to low-heel, which can be any shape you desire.
Here, a few combos to get you sarted. As you can see, the options are pretty much endless.
