Host a Holiday Party In Style
Occasion: Open House
Name: Julie Kirschbaum
With a baby due virtually any minute, Julie was a bit perplexed as to what to wear to her holiday shindig. Rather than choosing a dress and heels, we helped her flaunt her soon-to-be-a-mom status in this tuxedo-inspired ensemble. The combination of a long vest with satin lapels, pants with faux-leather panels and a white T-shirt has panache but is easy to wear. For a more formal look, swap the T for a tie-neck blouse. Slip-on sneakers with silver sequins play up the rock-star vibe. "This is something I never would have picked on my owe, and I love it!" Julie says.
