Ask Laurie: The Hardest Working Party Circuit Pieces?

Dear Laurie, I can’t believe that the holiday invites are already starting. What pieces should I be investing in to take me through the next month of office parties, after-work cocktails, and family gatherings?—Rachel D.

The holiday season can be high-stress, so when it comes to what to wear consider rockstar pieces that are easy to build an outfit around. It’s a good time to introduce a little sparkle to your repertoire—a studded bag or stacked bangles feel very right this time of year. Instead of a basic black coat, opt for a fun patterned cape, like this one from Lodental. Shoes are an easy way to add a pop of color and these color-block stilettos from Pierre Hardy do the trick—and have just a three-inch heel, pretty priceless if you’re running around various events in one night. As far as a handbag goes, I find it best to ditch the clutch and go hands-free (it’s so much easier to enjoy a glass of champagne or Instagram the festivities in real time, after all).
