Cocktail attire tips from Jade Terminella of Lola Boutique in Fayetteville
For cocktail hour inspiration, channel your inner hippie and layer, layer, layer. Nothing is cooler than a blonde faux fur vest over your hottest LBD. Mix vintage brass bangles and wear a long gold chain to complete the look. Or play with prints. We love a girl in sequins, but try using a bold floral print to make a statement. Stay polished by pairing it with a jacket or cardigan in the same color palette of the print.
For parties and events, we suggest investing in a tulle skirt for the holidays. Not the puffy tutu kind, but a well-fitted, sophisticated skirt. Long or short, pair it with any blouse, blazer, oversized tee or camisole you own for an edgy cocktail look. Try black, nude or charcoal for the most versatility.
Whatever you choose to wear out this holiday season, accessories are everything. Wear leather cognac booties with all black for an instant retro vibe. Sport casual ‘bed head’ hair with slouchy sequins and denim. We think rhinestones and vintage brass really can top any look off, just mix and match your favorite pieces together for a look all your own. And go gold! It’s flattering on every skin tone and gold accessories complement this season’s lineup of neutrals perfectly.
