During the holiday season, it’s easy to run into the same friends each weekend at different parties. Unfortunately, that means that you’ll need to wear different outfits to each event, but who wants to spend tons of money on a new holiday wardrobe when you’re already spending your paycheck on gifts for loved ones and a skyrocketing electric bill. We’ve decided to solve this holiday dilemma for you by demonstrating how you can mix and match 10 fashion items to create a variety of holiday party outfits!
The 10 Items You’ll Need
It only takes 10 staple fashion pieces to create multiple looks for the holidays. You’ll need a pair of dark jeans and a lace dress to serve as the foundation of your outfits. The jeans can be styled in a dressy or casual fashion, and the dress can also serve as a skirt when layered with a top! For tops, you’ll want to invest in a cable knit sweater, a cute top, and a beaded cardigan. These tops can easily be worn year-round, and they combine with the jeans and dress to create numerous looks. You’ll also need two pairs of shoes including booties for casual looks and a stunning pair of black pumps for fancy affairs. To finish the look, simply add a statement necklace, black handbag, or black tights!
