Five Items You Must Wear To All Your Holiday Fiestas!

Tis the season… to PARTY!  The temperature has dropped, I hear can the Salvation Army bell ringing on the corner and Manhattan is jam packed with crazy tourists rushing nowhere!  This can only mean only one thing… the holidays are here!  Let the strategic planning begin for the most festive time of the year.  Don’t compete with the Christmas tree but do cross boundaries and load up on sparkles, tinsel and lots of bling when it comes to getting dressed.  We have scaled the racked and back rooms of Michaels to bring you the ultimate must haves for your holiday party season.  Before you hit that fiesta, make sure you have checked off these 5 must haves to party in this season!  Sequins, metallics and velvets rejoice because it’s your time to shine!

The “IT” One-piece (Dress or Jumpsuit!)

One and done is how we like it! Don’t go for separates but instead find a dress or jumpsuit that makes you feel sexy and oh so festive! An LBD as we’ve told you before is just as divine as that huge slice of chocolate cake you’re about to eat. Also, opt for all over sequins’, beads or metallic knit! Hey, when else can you put these sparklers on and do the walk of shame if it isn’t the holidays? Jumpsuits are also a great option for a finished a look. You won’t have to worry about tights or knee boots to keep those legs warm! So many options so little time!

The Hands Free Bag

Ditch your clutch! Sure, it’s cute but it doesn’t hold much and you have to carry it around – which means you can’t snag an hors d'oeuvres and hold a cocktail at the same time. This year, go hands free! We absolutely love a bag that you can drape on your shoulder or even a cross-body! And if it has bling, studs, sequins or embellishments you score extra diva points!

The Party Shoe

Comfort is key! After all, you have to stay standing upright after all those martinis! You can still be sexy and chic while being extremely comfortable with a few key tips. Pick a shoe that has a platform, a thicker heel or a wedge. A shoe with more substance on the bottom will let you focus on the food and fabulous conversation rather than trying to eye the closest couch to pop a squat on.

The Glam Statement Piece

Really grab everyone's attention with something that makes them say, whoa! Statement necklaces, earrings, broaches and bracelets are the perfect +1 even if you have the hottest date. Oversized gems, shiny metallics and pieces that you’ve been too scared to wear before are on the hit list.

The Party Jacket

Put a little edge on that sequin number with a bit of leather. Blazers are just so formal, stuffy and confining. A leather jacket are perfect and when draped over your shoulders will make you feel so damn hot, you’ll want to walk into the room like you’re on a runway! Wearing all black? Step up your glitterati game and go for a metallic leather – Hey Vegas!
