The Lowdown: Does your style lean towards the young and edgy? Do you still have to go to holiday parties, including the family get-together overseen with an iron fist by Great Grandmother (insert last name here)? Well, we’re here to tell you that you don’t have to sacrifice personality to conform to the holiday status quo (and, hey, you know some of those parties are actually a good time).
We know your busy, so we’ve picked out three outfits for three common holiday occasions — the dressy party, the work party and the family get-together. But we’re not gonna lie, it’s like this — chic? Yes. Cheap? Non (although the entire work party ensemble is less than $250 total). That being said, they’re not outrageous either, and we love love love the quality of Topshop clothing. Can’t manage the whole outfit? Pick one piece you love and wear it with things you already own — that always makes us feel brand new.
Outfit 1: Dressy Party
