Day-to-Night Holiday Looks

We’ve reached that point at the tail end of the year when factoring in post-work events (office party, family dinner, bestie catch-ups) is essential to getting dressed in the AM. Here, goop fashion director Laurie Trott offers four techniques to incorporate a just-right amount of festive into looks you most likely already have in heavy rotation.

The Winter-White Suit

Don’t hesitate to bust out an all-white-everything ensemble (that no-white-after-Labor-Day “rule” applies to shoes only) and pair it with a pair of chic black shoes—or take this opportunity to play with color options, since literally everything goes with white.

Embellished & Tailored

The very same no-frills suit separates you’d wear on the clock can easily transition into playtime with a few luxe embellishments. Here, a studded tee, brocade clutch, and lace-trimmed ankle boots elevate the look. Statement jewelry, like these fringed earrings, adds a playful touch.

The Low-Key Tux

For a feminine riff on the classic tuxedo look, a pussy-bow blouse—currently on-trend, eternally timeless–is the perfect stand-in for a bow tie; the right pair of black-denim jeans, or any well-tailored black trouser, finishes the look to day-to-date perfection.


Here, the difference between sophisticated workwear and elevated cocktail attire lies in the details: ruffles, lace, embroidery, and dainty jeweled accessories all play exceptionally well together.
