Hi, Tiffany Cox here of Piper Dixon!  I’m so happy to be here showing you one of my favorite looks for a festive holiday party.  As I do on my own blog, I love showing my readers my favorite outfits and style looks.  I hope to inspire you to show off your own personality through fashion.  I know YOU can!  Check it out here.

Camisole – Nordstrom | Blazer –  H&M (similar) | Pants – Forever 21 (Mine are sold out, these are similar) | Heels – Sold out, but these are  cute | Necklace – J.Crew (Old, but this one would also work) | Earrings – J. Crew | Rings – Forever 21 –  12

Outfit  Yep, that’s right…SEQUINS!  A different take on the classic sequin dress is to go for some sequin pants.  I absolutely love these pants from Forever 21 (and they’re comfortable too!).  I paired them with this classic bright white blazer from H&M and a black camisole.  Can you see the impeccable detail on this jacket?  You can really find hidden gems at H&M and Forever 21 if you’re patient enough to go digging.  I finished the look with a pop of color with my ankle strap heels from Express.

Jewelry  Since we’re going all out with sequins, why not keep it going with some bling around your neck and on your ears!  As Coco Chanel said, “Costume jewelry is not made to give women an aura of wealth, but to make them beautiful.”  Stacks of gold rings is also a great idea for a festive look.

Makeup  I tend to always wear very minimal makeup.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE makeup and playing around with it.  But with this outfit I decided not to go overboard with my makeup.  My everyday go to look is exactly what you see here – Tinted moisturizer (this one is the BEST), powder (my favorite is this one), blush (this one is my holy grail), mascara (currently I use this) and lip gloss (this is what I used today).  When it came to nails I decided to keep it traditional – Red!

Hair  Soft waves is the way to go!  I created this do using an inch and a half barrel curling wand.  It’s so easy to do

Well that does it!  Enjoy and have fun at all those fancy shmancy festive holiday parties!  Merry Christmas!

It’s nice to have the fairy-tale princess outfit in the back of your mind, and at this moment this is mine. Incorporating some shimmer and sparkle can transform your outfit into a sophisticated, yet fun look all at the same time. Everything in this outfit can be purchased for under $100, so it’s not totally over budget, especially if you’re interested in investing in a beautiful piece.  I would one hundred percent wear this to a holiday party, unless it was less formal and/or an ugly sweater contest.   The Coast Tressi Full Skirt is so fun because it’s the ballerina skirt, but for grown-ups and the TOPSHOP Front Cross Embellishment Bralet is the glam that you need to be the eye candy of the party. These have to be my favorite two pieces of this outfit, hands down.

Happy Thursday Fashion-nina’s! I am in love with the latest hologram trend. I have seen it done beautifully in shoes and bags it was a little bit challenging to find one in a dress; till I laid my eyes on this beautiful piece. The neoprene fabric with pleats added beautiful volume below the waist and the thickness of the fabric helped create a flattering shape. The look was definitely a challenge to pull off because I wanted to make it look like a practical dress that can be worn to a holiday party. I kept the rest of the look very simple with my hair tied in a not so sleek pony tail and minimal accessories. Actually the only accessory this dress needs is a strong personality!

I thought about adding metallic shoes or a hologram bag but then decided to go with suede and my LV bag to keep things simple & practical.

I love holiday theme parties. It is a great opportunity to dress up and break away from your everyday 9-5 look.  Love it or hate it, “ugly” sweater parties are one of the most popular holiday get-togethers. If you can’t borrow an old sweater from your mom, don’t worry because many stores have their own line of affordable ugly sweaters to chose from.

You might be wondering how to stay stylish while looking festive?  Wear patterned leggings and a plain chunky knit top or pair your crazy sweater with a favourite pair of boyfriend jeans and boots.  There is a wide selection of casual sweat shirt type tops embellished with jewels and bling that make them more fancy yet always comfortable.

If you don’t have an ugly sweater in your closet, just add a Santa hat for a festive look. Whether wearing bells, sequins or candy cane earrings, the holiday party is always a fun time with family and friends.
