Holiday Party :: Playing with Textures in Black

holiday style in black

It’s the Sunday before Christmas! Holiday parties are happening, gift giving is about to be in full swing and there’s always the big question of what to wear! Of course, outside of the ugly sweater parties many of us are having these days, I do like to dress up for a fancy affair (already thinking about the New Year!) with great friends and good food! Wearing color is my happy place, but sometimes wearing classic black can be just as colorful when you’re playing with textures. Everything from mesh to feathers, sequins and lace, I love black clothing to have a playful texture to feel fun and fancy.

Here’s a peek at one of my holiday looks and some great holiday outfit options (scroll down) that can add an extra bit of glamour to your look with textures in black! Enjoy!





Outfit :: HD in Paris peplum top  (similar here under $40!) | Chicwish mesh skirt (similar here on sale! or here) | Elizabeth J fur bolero on sale! | Vince Camuto pumps  (similar here and glittery here!)| Sequin clutch (here and love this one here!) | Loft bracelet | BaubleBar chain necklace | Black pearl earrings (here and here)

Thank you for reading! Hope you enjoy the last days of shopping before the holiday!
