Holiday Party Style w/ The Bellas
From here on out, it's party, party, party, right? And the only thing you reeeaally have to worry about is...what to wear? Hmmmm. How about we get ya some inspiration...from the Bellas! Their style is second to none and they def have it down when it comes to dressing for special occasions :) Here's a look at some of their looks and some thoughts on how to style them. Enjoy!
Both Nikki and Brie have been spotted in this gorgeous lace halter pantsuit by Alexis. When both twins wear something, you can bet, it's a hit! Pantsuits are having a big moment right now, due to the 70's influence and they're an easy alternative to a dress: just as fast to put on and accessorize and just as formal. There are a myriad of options out right now, as many designers have jumped on this look. Go for a chic neutral shade (black, of course, being the ultimate classic) and enhance the 70's styling with platform sandals or make it sleek and polished with pointy-toe pumps in a holiday-worthy shade.
Dresses are a holiday staple, but Brie demonstrates a key aspect of doing dresses during the holidays: long sleeves. They're warmer, elegant and still offer a variety of style options. Try a beautiful lace version (perhaps with an A-line silhouette) and play up the modern-vintage dynamic with strappy booties. Or, follow Brooke's lead (see our upcoming FashionHap) and choose glittered and bodycon. Match it with bright sandals to pop the look. Or, you can stay comfy and cozy in the super-trendy sweater-dress. A chunky knit is toasty warm and tons of fun. Belted, or unbelted, this look epitomizes winter! Finish it off with boots: ankle, knee or OTK - they're all good. Ankle boots are urban cool, knee boots are classic and OTK's are fierce. So, pick your passion :)
Also to be covered in a future FashionHap is this clean, pulled-together look from Brie that I loved the moment I saw it! It's an ultra-classic cropped top and slim pants combo that's Audrey-Hepburn-worthy. Brie's then added a modern flair with her bright red pointy-toe pumps. This is a flawless semi-casual look for holiday parties. I'm a massive fan of giving an all-black look a twist by adding bright shoes. Gold or silver metallic or green suede could work just as well here. Depending on the texture of the top, you can dress down a bit more (the chunkier the top, the less formal you can be with your shoes). Alternatively, you can switch up the pants for a pencil skirt for the same level of formality but a touch more attitude, especially if said skirt gets a street-cool punch from zipper details ;)
We haven't seen the Twins out and about in plaid that often lately, but Brie is obv a devotee - just look at her ring gear! We're sure she'd be a fan of wearing some to a holiday party :). Dress up a flannel shirt by pairing it with a denim maxi skirt, instead of jeans. Keep the 70's vibe going with platform sandals or cute ankle boots. For added warm, wear capri leggings or tights underneath. Get a Paige-esque punk-chic vibe going by pairing a plaid shirt with skinny pants. Then slay the look by finishing it off with killer strappy sandals/booties. This look is ALL about the shoes, so go for your fiercest! Straps and studs are helpful too. Lastly, layer a plaid tunic or shirtdress over leggings for a cozy, but still festive style. Belted or un-belted, this is a fab wintry look. Ankle booties are a MUST for this one :)
