With the holidays in full swing, that means there are plenty of reasons to dress up. Although I love all of the glam and glitz of a fancy affair, not everyone does. The thought of putting together a dressy outfit can be intimidating. What is always important to remember is to dress within your comfort zone. That is to say, choose an outfit that flatters your figure, makes you feel confident and is comfortable to wear for several hours. This white skirt by Elizabeth and James is classic in its simple style and figure flattering fit. I paired it with a beaded tank top by Alice and Olivia, and this fabulous leather wrap by Worth New York. Here is an example of three wonderful stand alone pieces that will stand the test of time; they can also be worn over and over again incorporated into other outfits. The shoes, by Sergio Rossi, are a perfect example of this. Purchased five years ago, their front platform provides incredible comfort while adding about 4 inches to my barely 5’4 height, so that when I stand next to my 6’2 husband, I do not feel so short. Wearing white in winter is not only acceptable, it is chic and on trend. Hence, I fell I love with this skirt and plan to wear it many ways; more casually with a pullover sweater and professionally with a black blazer. When choosing investment pieces, versatility is key.
