Early this week I blogged about gorgeous holiday dresses for the upcoming holiday seasons. But are dresses the only way to navigate the many parties and get-togethers that are to come? Of course NOT.
Me say you can do it with lovely, ladylike skirts too, and they´re not necessarily long floor-sweeping skirts either!
Take a look at these three party outfits I created for you that speak of romance. They´re great for weddings, birthday parties, or even delicious dates with your love.
1. Dreamy Crop Lace Top + Pleated Midi Skirt
Coast brand declared this Natalia Top a truly stunning piece “crafted from a delicate sheer lace overlay”. I agree with both hands down, it is a truly stunning piece. In fact, this top comes with a matching “truly stunning” skirt. But I thought, too much of good things isn´t too good at all.
So I rather pair this lovely top with an equally lovely midi skirt, in pastel beige tone, with beautiful pleated overlay and tulle under skirt which create the fullness. It is this season´s ever so-trendy A-line shape.
Keep the heels and the handbag lady-like as well.
2. Lace Top + Jacquard Print Skirt
Have you ever tried matching a lace with a jacquard print? The motif for this look is evening drama.
Take a contemporary fitted lace blouse to wear tucked in a structured, a lil` boxy, high-low skirt with contrasting jacquard floral print. The fitted shape on your top + the flattering full silhouette on your skirt will serve as the main statement in your outfit. The lace and jacquard are some delicious bonuses.
Continue the drama down to your shoes with this D’Orsay pump from Badgley Mischka featuring an origami-style bow.
3. lace top + lace trumpet skirt
Are you ready to let go of the trumpet skirt yet? I´m not.
This peplum style trumpet skirt is included in Coast´s new arrival collection. When I saw it, I immediately knew it´s perfect for after dark parties. Its midi length evokes that runway elegance that I so admired when I first saw the shape on the stage.
You only need a glamorous lace top to go with it. You can complete the look with some black or nude high heels and a black clutch.
Now over to you, girls, which dramatic outfit of lace top and skirt defines your evening party style?
