3 Ways to Dress Up Like You Mean It
Rather than submit to the stresses of party season, take the steady flow of festivities as an opportunity to embrace the more-is-more maxim: an extra accessory here, a hint of glitz there—it’s all whole-heartedly encouraged.
Punctuate a gently embellished sweater and metallic skirt pairing with chunky velvet platforms. This way, you can put in solid kitchen time—plus, oversee cleanup efforts after—without sacrificing comfort or aesthetics.
