December is here, and you know what that means: Tis the season to celebrate! (With holiday party, after holiday party, after holiday party...) If you're in a constant state of worrying over what to wear, look to Austin-based personal style blogger Jessi Afshin of The Darling Detail for inspiration. Here's what she's planning on wearing this holiday season for every occasion—from the glitziest cocktail parties to a cozy evening entertaining the girls at your place.More
Because in Texas, you can do that in the middle of the winter. A sleek little slip dress topped with a luxe cashmere wrap looks sweet in neutral silver and cream. Pick your jewelry and accessories to match the glass of champagne you'll be holding all night—"I love adding a touch of metallic to holiday looks," Afshin says. "I chose a necklace that was simple but stunning. Add in dainty pearl earrings and silver bangles, and you've got an outfit that speaks for itself."
Give that LBD a night off—crimson red is the best way to channel your holiday cheer for a formal event. "A show-stopping red dress is my holiday soirée go-to," Afshin says. "It's the most classic seasonal staple and always a showstopper." A bold look like this needs a touch of glimmer and sparkle—and don't be afraid to mix metals. "[14k] Gold and silver are the perfect pairing for adding that extra something-something."
